    Steelers Alltime Rushing Stats

    I know stats are over-rated but I still like tracking current Steelers players and were they're at on the alltime Steelers stats lists....Plus I'm bored and its the off-season.

    Most Yards Rushing Career

    1. Franco Harris-11,950
    2. Jerome Bettis-10,571
    3. John Henry Johnson-4,383
    4. Frank Pollard-3,989
    5. Dick Hoak-3,965
    6. Barry Foster-3,943
    7. Walter Abercrombie-3,343
    8. Rock Bleier-3,271
    Fran Rogel-3,271
    10. Merril Hoge-3,115
    11. John "Frenchy" Fuqua-2,942
    12. Willie Parker-2,882

    Right now Willie is 12th on the Steelers alltime rushing yards list...But if he at least runs for 1,300 yards which he has averaged the last two years then will place him 4th overall after the 2007 season.

    Most Yards Rushing In A Single Season

    1. Barry Foster-1,690 (1992)
    2. Jerome Bettis-1,665 (1997)
    3. Willie Parker-1,494 (2006)
    4. Jerome Bettis-1,431 (1996)
    5. Jerome Bettis-1,341 (2000)
    6. Franco Harris-1.246 (1975)
    7. Willie Parker-1,202 (2005)
    8. Franco Harris-1,186 (1979)
    9. Jerome Bettis-1,185 (1998)
    10 Franco Harris-1,162 (1977)

    Most Yards Rushing In A Single Game

    1. Willie Parker-223 (12/07/2006)
    2. John "Frenchy" Fuqua-218 (12/20/1970
    3. Willie Parker-213 (11/12/2006)
    4. John Henry Johnson-200 (10/10/1964)
    5. Barry Foster-190 (9/13/1992)

    Most 100 Yard rushing Games

    1. Jerome Bettis-50
    2. Franco Harris-47
    3. Barry Foster-20
    4. John Henry Johnson-15
    5. Willie Parker-12

    Most Rushing TDs career

    1. Franco Harris-91
    2. Jerome Bettis-78
    3. Kordell Stewart-37
    4. Terry Bradshaw-32
    5. John Henry Johnson-26
    Barry Foster-26
    7. Dick Hoak-25
    8. Rocky Bleier-23
    9. Walter Abercrombie-22
    10 Merril Hoge-21
    John "Frenchy" Fuqua-21

    I agree Train...Dude I'm not kidding I think he has a real good shot for 2000 yards. Call me crazy but thats what I think. I'm just going by what Willie has averaged the last two seasons since we don't know for sure what he is going to do this year.

    So where is Willie in the Touchdown list? If Foster could have stayed off the pot, he could have been a special RB for us.

    Willie has 17 career rushing TD's....So he should get into the top 10 and then some this year...

    I didn't realize that in all reality, the ram-it-down-your-throat run game the Steelers have been doing for 30 years has only been done with a few key people. I had no idea Willie Parker was so close to being an all-time elite Steeler.

    I just hope, if he keeps it up, we can keep him. Basically, I don't want to see another free agency casualty. Being the best makes it difficult to keep fan favorites for entire careers.
    Hotlink it and spread the love!

    Thats why I like posting the stats...Its interesting to look at and like you said you find some shocking things in there...No worries about Willie we just resigned him last year. So he is with the Steelers for the near future at least.

    Thanks for the info, keeping up with signings is one thing I've never been able to do. I only know about the big ones everyone talks about.
