When evaluating running backs, one of the most common yardsticks to use is the 1,000 yard season. A running back who rushes for 1,000 or more yards in a season is generally considered to have had a very successful year.
The Panthers have only been around since 1995, and in that time just four different running backs have broken the 1,000 yard mark for the season. Three of those have done it one time, including Anthony Johnson in 1996, Stephen Davis in 2003, and Jonathan Stewart in 2009.
The leader in career 1,000 yard rushing seasons for the Panthers though is DeAngelo Williams who passed that mark in both the 2008 and 2009 seasons.
