Not sure who it is, but I was watching like a hawk too. Basically rooting for my teams to make me back my entry, then after that for JNers to take the top spots. I cannot tell you how many lineups I had Gates in, took him out, and used Charles Clay... oh well.
His efficiency did not really drop there. In his first 2 years he put up two 1200 yard seasons, then he hit the wall... when he got close to 30. First round RBs rarely bust. Picking out the anomaly doesn't bolster your point. You're statement that Peyton "made" all those highly-touted first round RBs he played with has no merit.
I think I've got 3 teams with 12 quarters (3 players) tonight. Hopefully a few of us can bump the ringers out of the top spot... in general, I'm only interested in pumping $10/entry into a league where if I loose one of you guys is winning it. If we keep it close, I considering playing with friends. Not full-timers.
Didn't James go to Arizona and play decent on a sh*t team for a while? Addai, I thought his career ended via injuries. Moreno looked excellent in Miami, but injuries. Dominic Rhodes is the only good example you have. You can't make the argument that Peyton has a history of "making great RBs" when 90% of the RBs he's played with were first round picks. That's ridiculous.
Moreno, James and Addai were all first-round RBs. So was Marshall Faulk. The Denver OL made Anderson last year. Not Peyton. In fact, Anderson and their OL thrived towards the end of the year when Peyton specifically could not carry the offense anymore.
