        Willie Parker is good, but overrated. He has a lot of yards but 1 TD or so? That doesn't cut it.
        Because we have Najeh Davenport as a Short Yardage Back?

        Parker gets us to the 5 and Davenport gets the TD..

        Not to mention Arians rather throw it into the end zone 3 times and kick the FG.

        Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

          Now Shaun isn't anywhere close to anyones top 10.

          I'm still holding out hope that his broken foot last year and hand this year are the reasons he's sucked lately....

            Fred's been a top ten back since he's been in the league. He has one of the highest career yards per carry in league history. He's rushed for over 10,000 yards in his career. It just took till this season for people to notice him.
            i agree with jsagan77, FT was underrated his whole career and now hes overrated. I also agree willie is overrated, but seeing where he is on the lists, maybe everyone thinks so too.. which kinda defeats the purpose..

            As for fred taylor, the only thing the guy has to say this year, is that he had a high yards per carry and not too many carries... what does that mean? to me, it insists that if he had more carries he would have the stats like other backs.. but that doesnt make sense to me because if he had more carries he'd be more banged up and slow down.. and maybe injured

            1. LT
            2. Brian Westbrook
            3. Adrian Peterson
            4. Steven Jackson
            5. Joseph Addai
            6. Larry Johnson
            7. Frank Gore
            8. Ronnie Brown
            9. Clinton Portis
            10. Marion Barber

                Does bring up an interesting question, though: How much does the OL factor in? After all, Chester Taylor almost matched Peterson's output behind the same line. You could make a similar argument for Jacobs as well, given how Ward did (though Droughns would seem to put a dent in it for the Giants).

                  Down seasons is no reason to drop running backs down the ranking. AP is good but he's still not the best in the league.

                    A kickass O-line pretty much locks up a team having a good running game.

                    It's why RB is such a fungible position for some teams.

                    A talented back shows off at the second level. It's why I consider Curtis Martin overrated. He's a great man and a very consistent RB, but he ran behind a dominant O-line and was never a "big play back"...just kind of took what the O-line gave him and maybe a couple more.

                        Yeah I've found that to be quite comical myself. But it doesn't suprise me. 'Top RB' threads are usually based on performance from the current season and LJ did not have a good year, especially compared to his '06 and '05 seasons.

                          Frank Gore is absolutely a top 10 RB.

                            Never been a big Johnson fan, and call me a homer, but Brian Westbrook is disgusting and I think he's better all-around than Peterson.

                                Your not a homer, Westbrook is disgusting, and as of now he is probably better than Peterson, but not by much.
