Did Emmitt Smith have 22,000 rushing yards or total offense? Me and a friend of mine are pretty big football nuts and were debating how far Ladanion Tomlinson is from tieing/breaking Smith's record. He said something like 7000 yards and I said 10,000. I looked it up and it only said 18,000 rushing yards but when I added in his recieving yards and it was like 21,000 yards. I am confused.
