Come on all ye brave and opinionated Jet Fans, and put you reputation where your mouth is! :D:D

Put down, for all to see, YOUR prediction of rushing production in 2005 between OUR Starter (Mr. HOF'er Curtis Martin) and the RAIDERS Starter (Mr. Out-of-the-Shadow Lamont Jordan).

Carries/Yards/TD's

Make your guess, your prediction. If nothing else, this should be pretty fun to look at in a year or so.....

No predictions from me at this but I will say that the only way Lamont outrushes Curtis is Curtis gets hurt.

Lamont will be good but he's going to look more like a Vikings back. He'll put up decent numbers but he won't force you to change your defense. He can't control a game the some of the good backs can...

How can anyone say that?? Jordan has yet to start

a NFL game..And Martin doesn't Control Games..Also

Martin has had his best years except for his Rookie

year with Hackett as the OC!! Here's Reality! In

96 Martin had 1152 yd's and a 3.6 avg per carry!

97 1160 and a 4.2 per carry! On that Basis Tuna

gave Martin a Huge Contract that the Pats couldn't

match because it allowed Martin to Void the whole

Deal after 1 year! That has since been made illegal!

Top backs in 96 were guys like Sanders,Davis and

they were in the 1500's and weren't making Money

like that! In 96 Adrian Murrell had 1249 yd's on

the worst Team in Jet History on 301 carries for a

4.1 avg and 6 TD's..You want to say Murrell was just

a avg back?? I agree..In 98 on our AFC Championship

Season loss Martin had 1287 yds for 3.5 yds per and

his 14 yds on 13 carry Championship Game performance!

Really took that one over! Martin is a Good back,I

have never said he wasn't...But the thing that makes

him standout is his amazing Durability and Longevity

not because he's in the class of the great runners

ability wise! :roll:
