GENERALS TRIVIA

--
Herschel Walker carried the ball 438 times for a pro football record 2,411 yards in 1985, scoring 21 touchdowns along the way.
--
The '85 Generals as a whole were a grind-em out, ground game oriented club offensively, scoring a whopping 35 touchdowns on the ground while throwing for only 15. 
--
QB Doug Flutie rushed for 465 yards in his rookie season, passing for 2,109.
--
Walker also led the Generals in receptions, with only 37!
--
K-P Roger Ruzek began his pro career with the Generals, then moved on to the NFL when the league disbanded.  In 7 NFL seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, Ruzek appeared in 93 games and scoring 566 points in all.
--
Maurice Carthon would also move on to the NFL after the USFL ceased operations, but he would continue to call the Meadowlands home, signing with the New York Giants.
--
Carthon was one of the NFL's premier fullbacks, providing blocking for the likes of Ottis Anderson.  Carthon would earn a pair of Super Bowl rings with the Giants before retiring after the 1992 season as a member of the Indianapolis Colts.
--
Had the Generals played in the fall of 1986, the team's offense likely would have taken a much more balanced appearance, thanks to the addition of QB Jim Kelly via a merger with the Houston Gamblers.
