Five Seasons: 72 GP, 6,714 yards (59th all-time), 63 TD (T-37th), 4.8 ypc (T-37th), 93.3 ypg (4th)

But this does beg the question, if his career were done after today, would those numbers be good enough to get him in the HOF?

Not before guys like Priest Holmes and Terrell Davis. Unfortunately, he'd have to get in the long line of RB who had 3-5 huge years and, due to either overuse, injury, bad luck or a combination of them all, saw it end there.
