Saw this implied in the other thread. Both are backups who are TD machines this year (9 for Drew, 10 I think for Barber) and both are multi-dimensional.

Drew is the man!!! He can't be compared to any back in the NFL. He is a complete tank and I would gladly add him to any roster I could come up with currently in the NFL. I personally think that he will be the second best back out of last years draft behind Jo Addai.

I dont know much about mario barber except he was amazing his rookie season. Maurice Drew has incredible work ethic if you ever followed him up to the draft. he felt he had something to prove having been overshadowed by bush and white.

Drew has most everything that Barber has plus speed, so I'd take Drew. I do think Barber is a bit shiftier, but I'll take breakaway speed over a little bit of shiftiness.

This board so overrates Mo Drew. I'd still take Addai, Maroney and DeAngelo over him everyday of the week....Check that, Jerious Norwood too.

If it werent for Taylor, Drew would be putting up OROY #s.

Wow, now that you list all of them, I'm really impressed with the crop so far. And that's not taking into account the #1 back in Reggie Bush. So far a lot of these guys are making names for themselves already. Let's see if they can continue that.

I'll say this:

Maurice Drew has easilly been the most consistent rookie RB this year.

Ever since his breakout game in week 3 vs. Indy, he's accumulated 488 yards rushing on 91 attempts (a 5.36 YPC average), and 7 rushing touchdowns, including a rushing touchdown in each of the last four weeks.

That's not even taking into account his 317 yards and two touchdowns receiving.

If he had played the first two games getting the same amount of touches he's received on average so far, and that average was projected towards the end of the year, these would be his final season stats:

780 rushing yards on 146 attempts, 11 rushing TDs

507 recieving yards on 51 catches, 3 recieving TDs

That's good, especially considering he's spelling a rejuvenated Fred Taylor.

Bumped this thread because this guy looks silly. lol.

Maurice only RB in the NFL to record 2,000+ all-purpose yards in each of the last two seasons. One of the highest TD-per-touch players in the entire NFL, lead all backs in third down efficiency, has had consecutive seasons of at least 40 receptions and 400+ yards, leads all backs in first down rushing percentage (minimum 150+ rushes). Has 20+ runs of 20 yards or more so far in his career, despite being a backup.

There's a really good chance you underrated Maurice, and not that everyone else in the world overrated him.

I like MJD and I think he is the best change of pace running back in the league but it really isn't hard to break 2000 yards when you are returning kicks as well as playing RB

Mo Drew is great, but as I've said before, he's also a by-product of Freddy T playing strong in his early 30s.

Look at Drew's career production in the 1st and 3rd quarters versus the 2nd and 4th quarters. Other backs are too valuable to their team to use on returns, but because of Taylor and Greg Jones, the Jags can afford to let Drew return and he can do that well.

The genius who bumped up this thread didn't realize that, unfortunately.

damn was little confused there for a second reading the first couple threads until i saw the date lol!..... as for right now both are good but i like Barber he is the hardest runner in the league guy puts a hit every time someone wants to tackle him.

Ever heard of Brian Westbrook or LT? They've done it once and came very close in another.

Oh and BTW MJD hasn't sniffed 2000 yards from scrimmage not even close, only has 2000 all purpose yards because he returns kicks, that has nothing to do with the caliber of RB he is.

That's an interesting question. But I think FT helps that offense more than that offense helps FT, especially in regards to MJD.

Geo
08-28-2008, 05:58 PM
A great point. Sure it helps Fred Taylor that he's not taking the pounding he used to, but any Jags fan will tell you that most important is that Taylor takes so much better care of his body now than he ever used to as a younger man. The Jags have built up one of the best run-blocking lines in the league, the talent they've brought in and Mike Tice as the OL coach has helped in that cause.

But sure, having a very talented and explosive back in Mo Drew carry some of the load definitely helps Taylor out.

BlindSite
08-28-2008, 06:21 PM
I still think its impressive that both backs can put up the numbers they can without legitimate outside threats, or one at QB.

I know the Jags homers will cry, but its not like defenses have to account for a pairing of Harrison and Wayne with Manning throwing them the ball, so the RBs get front 7s in pass rush mode and that's it all day long to face.

Most of the time its 8 men in the box and they still come through with the goods.

I've never been one to purse swing over which player is better. That being said, as it stands right now, I'd rather have MJD, reason being, I feel he's a better receiver, but only by a margin and I think having someone who can spark that special teams magic is worth more than one TD through 16 games.

D-Unit
08-28-2008, 06:52 PM
If I'm building a team, I draft Barber first, but MJD can return kicks, so he provides a little more versatility. Barber is just so smart and so vicious and never gives up. Both are tremendous blockers.

Id take MBIII. I think MBIII is going to establish himself as one of the top 5 RBs in the game this year.

Maybe even top 3.

From a purist standpoint, Fred Taylor is the best pure running back in the game. He's in my opinion, the prototype RB.

If he stayed healthy, he couldve been one of the greats.

Well, Marion Barber is no longer a back-up. Felix Jones has kinda crapped it up (especially with blocking,) so Barber will be getting the heavy dose. I always love those bruisers who can do great things, so I'd take Barber. But both are great. Once Taylor is done, MJD could be right up there.

MJD, I think he will have the best average yards per carry for a runningback for many years to come.
