To settle a argument with rainbeaukid2.

This is excluding LT and LJ.

Well, Tiki won't be playing anymore, so not him, that's for sure.

01-01-2007, 03:39 PM
portis hands down

01-01-2007, 03:41 PM
I would probably Jackson, followed by Gore, followed by McGahee

01-01-2007, 03:41 PM
I would go with either Portis, Brown or Jackson. I voted for Jackson though because he is the best in a regular scheme.

01-01-2007, 03:46 PM
Jackson. He can do it all Run, catch, block plus he has dreadlocks :P

01-01-2007, 03:46 PM
Jackson, built like a linebacker, runs people over and has great hands. Cowboys had a chance at him, but I don't wanna look back on that.

I'd take either Gore or Jackson. Jackson is an all around great back. I think I'd take him.

01-01-2007, 03:47 PM
either portis or jackson....... but i think ronnie brown can be the best out of them

01-01-2007, 03:47 PM
I think it's easily Jackson.

01-01-2007, 03:48 PM
Portis, hes the best back on the list

01-01-2007, 03:48 PM
Steven Jackson in a heart beat.

He has amazed me with his running and receiving ability this season.

01-01-2007, 03:51 PM
Steven Jackson.

As of late he has rerally improved and has turned into a beast, either running the ball or recieving it.

After that probably Portis then Brown and then Gore.

01-01-2007, 04:06 PM
it came down to Clinton and Jackson

when healthy, I'm taking clinton

01-01-2007, 04:56 PM
jackson easily.

he does everything well from running between the tackles to catching the ball out of the backfield.

01-01-2007, 05:07 PM
I voted Other but that was before i saw that you said excluding LT and LJ so i would take Steve Jackson then Frank Gore, then Portis.

01-01-2007, 05:09 PM
Steven Jackson! He has the size, speed, and he's a threat out of the backfield in the passing game

01-01-2007, 05:12 PM

01-01-2007, 05:13 PM
i barely like portis over jackson when healthy.

01-01-2007, 05:20 PM
jackson, because he is a threat in the passing game, he is a brusier, and he has decent speed. also, i am not completely sure, but i think he is a good blocker.

01-01-2007, 05:31 PM
I said Gore. I like how he runs, and he can recieve as well.

01-01-2007, 05:39 PM

Between Gore, Jackson, and Portis.

I'll go with Portis just because I don't think he can be forgotten aboutow good he is. Jackson and Gore both definitely have cases to be better, though.

01-01-2007, 06:32 PM
Ronnie has the most potential and I like his style of play most, I's be interested in seeing what he could do with an Oline in front of him

01-01-2007, 06:45 PM
Out of those? Steven Jackson, without a doubt.

01-01-2007, 06:54 PM
Just out of the ones listed there I would take Portis.

01-01-2007, 07:41 PM
although I love Stephen Jackson, if I were to choose one player to win me one game tommorow, it's gotta be Tiki Barber- the guy finds holes like none other. Too bad he's retiring though.

01-01-2007, 07:43 PM
Steven Jackson easily.

art vandelay
01-01-2007, 07:52 PM
Steven Jackson, then Michael Turner, then Mo Jones Drew.

01-01-2007, 08:16 PM
Steven Jackson, then Michael Turner, then Mo Jones Drew.

nice pick...i might take Turner #1 though......sometimes i think he as good as LT the way he breaks tackles

01-01-2007, 08:45 PM
who ??

considering he has a josh brown sig, i would say he wants shaun alexander

Please tell me you don't really believe Turner is better than guys like Jackson, Gore and Portis.

Portis hasn't done much since his injury... Gore on the other hand with 8 guys in the box almost every play averaged 5.4 ypc and had almost 1700 yards to lead the NFC in rushing. Injuries are concerned but he's young and he's got a good attitude. He says he's gonna rush for 2200 next season so beware. :!:

It's Gore or Jackson for me I chose Gore just because he's a local guy and I love the kid. In reality Jackson is probably better.

For people not on the list, MJD and Maroney are both solid, MJD would be my next choice after Gore and Jackson, probably ahead of Portis too. As for Turner the Burner, he hasn't had enough time for me to say. Plus SD has a really good run-blocking line.

01-01-2007, 10:03 PM
Clinton Portis followed by Steven Jackson and Frank Gore.

01-01-2007, 10:17 PM
I'd take Gore then Edge then SJax.

01-01-2007, 10:38 PM
It's really close between Jackson, Portis and Brown for me.

I love watching Brown run, and Jackson is great, but I'd take Portis. It's definitely close.

01-01-2007, 10:39 PM
The thing that bothers me about Portis is the success of other RB's in the systems he's been in. Denver is obviously heaven for a running back and Betts has done great because of how good the OL is.

01-01-2007, 11:40 PM

01-01-2007, 11:46 PM
Steven Jackson, followed by Clinton Portis.

01-02-2007, 12:27 AM
Either Steven Jackson or Rudi Johnson. If I had a ground and pound offense then I would easily go with Rudi. If I was using a balanced attack I'd go with Jackson. Really depends on the scheme I'm running.

01-02-2007, 02:11 AM
Steven Jackson
Runs like a freight train and can juke a lot of agile players, decent enough hands as well. I don't necessarily like him for longer than 6-7 years which isn't really enough to build a franchise around like you can with some backs that last about 12 or 13 years.

Frank Gore
I like Gore a lot, especially his receiving ability but I don't know how long he can be a hammer back like he is.

Clinton Portis
Perfect blend of size, speed, power and agility. Great hands and route running, solid in pass protection and can turn any run into 6.

01-02-2007, 07:55 AM
Its really close between Gore and Jackson, but Gore fumbles too much so Id go with Jackson.

01-02-2007, 07:58 AM
For a game tomorrow I'd take Tiki or Jackson. However looking for the future and building a franchise I'd take Jackson still obviously or Ronnie Brown.

What we are seeing from Gore, in my opinion, is a flash in the pan. I really doubt he is nearly this successful next year.

Take for this season or for a couple of years. For one year I would take Tiki Barber. But if it is for a couple years I would take the player with the most yards from scrimmage this year, Steven Jackson.

01-02-2007, 12:10 PM
ALthoug hhe might not be the number one choice i think you should include last years rookie of the year Carnell WIlliams.

01-02-2007, 12:13 PM
ALthoug hhe might not be the number one choice i think you should include last years rookie of the year Carnell WIlliams.

We're talking about the best running back in the league after LT and LJ. Cadillac gets zero consideration after this season.

01-02-2007, 12:14 PM
ALthoug hhe might not be the number one choice i think you should include last years rookie of the year Carnell WIlliams.Big possibilty too, he had a horrible offensive line this year and was plagued by injuries!

01-02-2007, 01:19 PM
I would take a healthy Clinton Portis.

01-02-2007, 01:41 PM
Jackson. He can run with power, has the speed and lateral movement to bounce it outside, can catch, can block...he's an incredible back.

2nd place goes to Portis, 3rd to Ronnie Brown. I still think that Ronnie is gonna develop into a great back, its not his fault his oline stinks and that no one respects his qb so he sees 8 sometimes 9 men in the box.
