    Larry Johnson or Steven Jackson?

    I'm gonna go with Jackson. He is a better pass catcher, and his physical skills are jaw-dropping. He has the speed to turn the corner, and some decent shake. Not to mention being a great inside runner.

    LJ is a great runner and deceptively fast. His numbers are oustanding but I think, at least to a certain extent, his success is a product of the system he is in.

    LJ is really misused in KC. Herm Edwards finished off Curtis Martin and it's pretty bad that LJ may fall to the same fate.

    I'd take Jackson right now, because I think LJ is going to start breaking down after being extremely overworked by the Chiefs this year.

    LJ is the better back, but Stephen Jackson will have the better year.

    i do find it funny that people were calling for a 2500 yard season for LJ at the beginning of the year and suddenly would rather have jackson (who they hadn't really noticed all season).
    It's quite simple LJ finished the year with a bad Colts games (OLine's fault), and SJax was probablly had the best stats of all RB's the last 3 or 4 games. Therefore, SJax has the momentum, and it will carry on throught the offseason. Now say LJ runs wild on the Colts and the Chiefs move to the next round these poll results would deffinatley look different.

    I love watching Johnson run over people, but I have to give my nod to Jackson

    Now, living in England, my limited knowledge and exposure to such individual stories are much lower then you guys, so if Jackson is as much of a distraction as LJ then just ignore my post.

    LJ's not commited to the team? He might not have been his first 2 years before getting the starting job (rightfully so, the way DV treated him), but since his number was called when Priest went down LJ has been a team player. He carried the ball over 400 times this year. If you ask me it takes a commited person to do that for the team. He always says he want to bring Shields, Trent and the old guys a SB, and when asked about a new contract this week LJ said he isn't worried about it, and his goal is to "win the SB not be the riches man alive". That's not a "ME" type player.

    Ill take Jackson over Johnson, Jackson is a dual threat RB, and I think he'll be better for longer.

    I'm not going to argue with those who say SJax, because they're both ridiculous specimens, and I'd be happy with either one of them, but to say LJ is a product of the system is totally BS. He didn't have Roaf or Trich this year, along with Green being out. Will Shields and Casey Weigman are really on the decline. We had two OG's playing the OT spots along with a guy who's the size of a TE with a bad back, and a TE playing the FB position (he did okay though). Even Brian Waters got injured in the middle of the season. Yet LJ was still the 2nd best back int he NFL this season (would have been first, but LT just happened to have a CRAZY season).
