    ESPN Top 64 RBs

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/insid...lid%3dtab1pos1


    Westbrook at 4 is a joke, should be higher.

    Barber is good, but not number 8 good.

    This should spark some discussions :)

    Nevermind the elite pass protection and receiving ability, McGahee can't even make the first guy miss like Addai. Plus I doubt McGahee could handle half the Colts playbook, and I feel like I'm being generous there. Look at what Addai did at LSU and at the Pro Bowl, the guy can get it done in different offenses, the only issue is staying healthy and having a bit of an upright style (as a back between 5' 11" and 6').
    McGahee was actually fairly impressive for the Ravens last year...Addai flat-out SUCKED at times last year, man, and he's in one of the better running systems of the NFL.

    Jacobs doesn't have speed to take it to thehouse? Are you smoking crack or something? Watch more of our games, and you can see he does have speed to take it to the house. If your going to rip him, at least be correct. And I am not a Jacobs fan, but at least question his below avg vision vision, and lack of cutback ability like I do!

    4.2 YPC is VERY respectable given Gores situation.

    He didn't say the numbers were great, he said they were respectable. What he said was great was the fact that he played hurt most of the season and still managed to put up respectable numbers with our waste of space O-Line.
    Thank you.

    Nah Addai is definately a top 10 back, but I agree that he is not any higher than that. While having lots of stars on the offense in Indy, he does have very good talent of his own and could be a good back elsewhere as well.
    i personally would put him in the top 15 area but i think he is great for indy. he does everything they ask and is a great patient runner. while he would be good in other places, i he is a great fit for indy

    Portis hands down is the best blocking RB in the league, to debate that is pointless
    Longhorn didn't say Barber was the best, but rather one of the best.

    I guess same thing can be said about Jacobs. Jacobs is a good blitz pickup guy. At 6'4 264, he can eat up any LB or worse CB/SS/FS who thinks they can fly in there. He doesnt have to do what the smaller backs do and cut the guy, Jacobs can just take them 1 on 1 and not worry about getting owned physically. That's where his size is a huge asset. One defensive player want to be running full speed into a guy that side, lol.

    I have a problem with both of those, The mighty Midget should be ahead of Jacobs and the Barbarian can't be ahead of Lynch unless this is a likelihood of making the PB list.
