Warning: Slightly subjective trivia ahead.

We’ll dive into some trivia today that’s both a little easier than normal and a little more subjective, in that I’ll accept one of a couple of answers here.

Who had the best rushing season in team history?

When you’re thinking about this, consider a few factors, including usage, yardage, scoring, and the offense the player was functioning within. While there’s a pretty slam dunk season on this list, I do think you could point to one campaign from each of the previous three decades (1980s, 1990s, 2000s) and make a strong case for any of them, but I think there’s one in the 1990s that deserves your particular attention and respect.

Give us your best guess (or best argument), and let’s go.
