  1. For some reason, the rest of my post wasnt on the above but I addressed those names...weird. Anyway, Lynch is an interesting choice. He is an all around back. Good downhill runner, great hands, great blocker, and utilizes one quick move to make people miss because of his power. Good choice, but I dont think he is that good. Tomlinson is still the man. The guy had a naggin injury last season and still put up some serious numbers. He might be a ***** in the playoffs but he is still the man in the regular season. If he's healthy he's still nasty. But Sproles scares me for projection reasons. He was awesome last season and they are going to use him...a lot. And thats the reason why I left him off my list.
  2. Its hard for me to argue that based of talent, but injuries plague Westbrook and Jacobs. Not to mention, I think they will both be spliting carries, both of teams drafted what I think will be very good RB's. Andre Brown is a steal in the 4th for the Giants and the Eagles took LeSean McCoy in the 2nd. These guys are going to get carries, consequently the starters wont have the numbers some other guys in the league will be putting up.
  3. Ronnie Brown is not a top 5 back. Lets move on. What do guys think about Darren McFadden this year? Anyone feeling like he might have a big year? I think he will. And who ever said it is right, there is a ton of talent in the backfield these days in the NFL.
  4. Yes, my perfection is underrated and often unnoticed.
  5. This is true, but I think you are just going to see an increase in Bradshaw's carries who in 07 was just beastly in the playoffs. And apparently they really like this kid Danny Ware, ever heard of him? lol And didnt they draft a RB as well?
  6. Once again, my thread wasnt started about who is the best. Its who I think will project as top 5 Rb's in 09. Jackson is amazing but his team sucks and he is injury prone. I just dont see him having the numbers as some of the others I mentioned.
  7. Yep. Thats why I didnt put him in the top 5. Also, the Giants like to have multiple ball carries so from a projection standpoint, he might not get the stats the others I mentioned will accumulate. They pull him out of the game in the strangest situations sometimes that just keep me scratching my head.
  8. Last year Matt Forte ran for 1238 yards 8 TD's and caught 63 balls for 477 yards and 4 TD's the only running back better then him catching the ball was MoJo Drew. What are failing to see? The guy is really really good and that was just his rookie season. He is only going to get better.
  9. He had a great, I mean great!, rookie campaign. You must assume he is only going to get better. Throw in Jay Cutler and the threat of the deep ball, which Orton does not possess, and I think Forte is going to see some HUGE lanes this season.
  10. No, this is my true opinion of projections, not fantasy. Portis is a very good back and I think he will have big year if healthy. He is very consistent. Forte and MoJo Drew arent the best either, but I think they will have a big year because of their situation. If I was to start a list of the best RB's in the league, it would be different.
  11. Thanks for the contribution you dipstick. Really helps stir up some actual Football talk.
  12. Following the success of the Top 5 Qb's thread, its time to get some opinions on a new position around the NFL for next season, projecting who is going to be Top 5 Rb's. The season is right around the corner and just like the pro's getting ready for the season, we need to start getting warmed up for actual Football talk, hopefully these threads are a good warm up for debating during the season. 1) Adrian Peterson 2) Michael Turner 3) Clinton Portis 4) Maurice Jones-Drew 5) Matt Forte Some of these names may surprise you and are probably new to this conversation, but the league has changed and many back are splitting carries. Taking that into consideration, these are my favs to be tops of the NFL. AP, there is no question in my mind he is the best in the league. Michael Turner was unstoppable last year and with Tony G. in the line up, his job just got easier. Portis has been the model of consistency and when healthy behind a strong Oline, he is one of the best. MoJo Drew is going to have a big year without Freddy T. He is the focal point of that offense and he will have a big season if their Oline can stay healthy. Tre Thomas should help him out as well. Matt Forte had a big rookie season and now that he has a BIG arm in Cutler as his QB, I expect to see even bigger lanes this season. Honorable Mentions Brian Westbrook Steve Slaton Frank Gore Ryan Grant Steven Jackson Players that are not on the list because of split carries Landanian Tomlinson - Darren Sproles Dangelo Williams - Jonathan Stewart Ronnie Brown - Ricky Williams Marion Barber - Felix Jones Chris Johnson - Lendale White
  13. I liked your post, it made me giggle from pure confusion and because I feel somewhat bad for you. And my advice to you is never change up your style just to fit in. Trying to impress Max isnt you.
  14. I too happen to be misunderstood and underrated. I feel your pain PB.
  15. Holy **** dude, you are seriously disturbed.
  16. Cant find a confirmation. If its true, is this a desperate attempt to get power? I mean its not like Fran is just crushing the ball, but why else? I dont get it really. Church and RF wasnt our problem, he was good out there and he wasnt the worst bat in the lineup. Its an upgrade, but how much?
  17. Yeah, the AFCE is definitely the most talented. The only division you could argue is maybe the NFCE, dont feel like going through it but the only place that I think AFCE dominates would be WR. QB would be about equal RB would be NFCE OL would be about equal DL would be about equal LB would be NFCE CB would be equal S would be equal ST - AFCE
  18. Come'on, you knew you would love the anus burger. Dont kid yourself.
  19. Not a single man thats picture has been posted in this thread is better looking than me.
  20. Have you guys heard of this rookie Matt Sanchez? You think he will be top 5 one day?
  21. Yep. He makes them say it right after he has them pull their pants down and moon the camera. You should check it out. I know how you like to see a mans bare ass.
