Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew told CJ & Kreckman on 102.3 The Ticket in Denver (via SportsRadioInterviews.com) that he believes he can break the NFL’s all-time rushing record, which is currently held by Emmitt Smith.

“Yeah, I think it’s doable. I definitely think it’s doable,” said Jones-Drew.  “Once again, Emmitt Smith was in a different situation than a lot of us, though. I mean, he had a Hall of Fame receiver, Hall of Fame quarterback, Hall of Fame offensive line, Hall of Fame fullback. Whoever put that team together did a heck of a job, and it just showed. … Don’t get me wrong: he was the reason they won, but he had a lot of guys around him as well.”

Jones-Drew is currently 53rd on the all-time rushing list and with likely only a few more good years left in him, I don’t see him breaking the record.
