ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Willis McGahee wasn't supposed to make it to the NFL, much less pinball his way through pro defenses for a decade.
So said the naysayers after he tore three ligaments in his left knee in his final college game at Miami.
Ten years later, McGahee is still proving the doubters wrong. He just recorded his 32nd 100-yard rushing game, more than any active NFL running back and one for each candle that will soon decorate his birthday cake, plus a spare for good measure.
Thirty-something tailbacks are rare in a league that spits out ball carriers after just more than two seasons on average, and rarer still are those as productive as McGahee after 30 trips around the sun.
