Lol, he musst have had alot of those useless runs considering he's leading the NFL in rushing and is pretty much a lock for top 3.

In the NFL, there isn't a huge difference in talent levels between average players and great players. It's stuff like vision, heart, and working hard that seperate them. I can't believe you're saying this, he's a beast. He's very difficult to tackle.

I would take Gore over all of them, even Willis as a Bills fan. He is too inconsistent. If I was a pass crazy team, James for sure. Zone blocking, Portis. McGahee fits in all schemes and can be decent, but Gore hits the hole harder and faster than all of them in my opinion, that is why I would want him.

Minus the knee injury Frank Gore would be better than all of them without question. But I still think Frank Gore is a better pure running back than Clinton Portis. He doesn't have the speed like Clinton Portis but probably packs double the punch.

PS - He did beat both McGahee and Portis for the starting role while he was a sophmore.

if McGahee wasnt injured..man thoughts of that


he was very explosive before injury..he was a 4.3 speed guy at Miami but then the nasty injury..packed weight and did more power than being shifty and outrunning..kinda lost a little weight this year so he can be explosive and score from anywhere like he used to be able to.

no telling how good Portis could of been if he stayed in denver and if Washington actually ran a scheme that suited him better(not a power back)

as Prospects McGahee was CRAZY before gettign hurt. Portis was a mid 2nd i believe and wasnt as good as the rest but in NFL hes a top 3 back IMO when healthy and when running in natural scheme and not used as power back

the main reason he gets caught on all of the long runs is because he runs hard every play and then when he finally breaks, he is already tired. couple that with the fact that he isnt the fastest RB in the league and that is a reason why you can get caught. he is actually one of the better RBs in the league because of his heart, drive, and his desire to do well. in reality, the only real knock on him is his fumbling

WHAT? Your list makes no sense. How does the fact that he breaks off long runs diminish his value? Should he just bust shorter runs? I have no idea what you're trying to say. Hey, I just watched LT bust an 85-yard run. He should stop doing that.

nobody will vote for portis since hes been hurt this season. Betts is a crappy backup and has been getting 100 yard games out of his butt. Portis will be back next year and everyone will hop off frank gore's nuts.

no im just saying if he didnt verse such bad D's and break the long runs that we wouldnt even have this discussion.

you guys are basing his skill off stats. Portis is clearly the most talented back from Miami . Gore is clearly having the best season of them all. you cant judge off 1 season. we'll see next year. and then the next. and the next. whoever establishes themselves consistently will be the best

take Gore out. best RB from U between 2002-2005: Portis

Portis is better than Gore at this point in their careers. Portis is a complete all-around back that does everything you can ask a runningback to do. Gore just started having big-time success this year and I can't realistically put him in the same league as Portis yet. We'll see how Gore does the next few years.

Yeah. And the main argument for it was Portis' age. But its not age that matters so much as carries and durability. Portis had showed even before this season that he wasn't the most durable of backs and wasn't going to be able to play for another 10 years.

Yeah, but with any team other than Denver and if he wasn't barely 20 when he started his NFL career that would be different. Denver makes Olandis Gary look good for crying out loud.

I agree that Portis is great and I had him as the number one rusher this season which obviously isn't happening due to injury. I had Gore finishing around 9th in rushing after the Barlow trade.

I don't think McGahee deserves so much credit because I have watched every single one of his NFL games so far as a Bills fan. He is a great back, but he won't do much unless he has good blocking and runs on the outside and gets 25 carries a game. If only he hadn't killed that knee, then again if it weren't for that he wouldn't have fallen to the Bills, so it worked out for the Bills I guess...

James to me hasn't been very good since his first major injury with the Colts, since then he has just been above average and not a top teir back, he was a a hall of fame pace but then he got hurt and was more of a multi pro bowler who might get a shot at the hall of fame in a very weak crop.

I think that I will withdraw my previous choice of Gore after thinking about it more and I think that Portis is the best of the bunch once again and he is my ultra ultra early pick for best back next year in terms of per game production at least because of his injury problems.

They are all great... pretty much I have Gore and Portis and then right behind them McGahee and James. I would like to see what Gore would be like without the injuries, that would just be scary :shock:

Yeah but sayin mcgahee has more talent than gore doesnt mean much in the discussion. Mcgahee has been in the league longer and i dont think ive seen a truly breakout year. I also personally find him over-rated. I watch many bills games and i dont see anything too special. He has his best games against the jets, and the rest hes average. Way too inconsistent for my liking.

That's a good point but even before Gore messed his knee up he wasn't as impressive at McGahee was at Miami. If you saw him play every game that year you would understand, he was so ridiculously quick. He hit the hole so fast. He doesn't have the burst he once had.

It comes down to Gore vs Portis.

Gore hits the hole harder than any running back on that list, but Portis probably has better top speed since Gore can be caught from behind. However, I'll take Gore's attitude, determination, and heart over all of them.

If it's best RB when playing at the U it's Willis McGahee.

In the NFL, I give it to Portis or Edge. Gore is having an amazing season, but all the RBs on that list have had at least one great season... Portis has been impressive this whole time and has still a lot of potential and time to get better. Edge has been productive throughout his career, but his injuries and poor play at Arizona (tho not really all his fault) is what makes him second to Portis imo.

IMO Gore is the best runner of the group, he runs strong and with authority...he's almost impossible to bring down 1-on-1 without sound technique..which is why he breaks a ton of tackles. He does not have breakaway speed, but he does have excellent quickness which allows him to accelerate into the 2nd level. He plays with determination.

Portis has the most pure talent of the bunch, but he can't stay healthy for some reason...nagging injuries bothered him last year as well if I recall?

Haven't seen much of McGahee but he dances at the line too much instead of hitting the hole hard...most of his big runs come from draw plays, outside runs.

Edge...he's fallen off in AZ I still like him though.

Frank Gore is just the best right now aka the reason why he is leading right now.

Willis McGahee imo since he has an average OL unlike guys like Portis and James (when he was at Indy). Just think how good McGahee would be w/o his knee injury. McGahee pretty much carries the Bills offense with him.
