      1. Vikings

      2. Eagles

      3. Cowboys

      4/5. Falcons/Giants

      I think RBC are the way to go and even if you have a superior 1st string RB (Steven Jackson, Frank Gore), its showing that you need a good 2nd string RB (This doesnt go for Westbrook. All you need is Westbrook). Giving that rest to the number 1 RB is essential, especially as the game winds down and the defenses get tired. I think they put these 1 back guys too high and that Turner and Norwood are a great combination.

          top 3:

          Giants
          Rams
          Vikings

          kthx bye

          but seriously, did he really say Leonard hasn't proved himself as a viable option? **** him. He obviously knows nothing. Leonard is the greatest player in the league, hands down

              you can't compare Offensive and Defensive players, but it's close. very very close.

                Call me a homer but I'll take two backs in Stewart and a proven healthy commodity Williams over warrick dunn, cadillac williams and edgerrin james.

Ovie Mughelli is one of the best blocking FBs in the league. Both of them have questions about whether or not they can handle the load...and what do you know! They wont have to!
                    I'm not saying that they won't be a great combination, but I'm waiting on Turner to see how he does without LT before I make my judgment. I feel like he's somewhat overrated right now, but he could certainly prove me wrong this season.

                      I think The Panthers will have a top five tandem by the end of the year

                        Of course you would, because you are a Panther's fan.

                          So you should be ranked higher then Portis and Betts? I'm not buying that right now, at least not yet.

                            Panthers, not Panther's. No reason for random apostrophes in plural words.

                            But he is right. A healthy Stewart and a healthy Williams would be pretty badass.

                              Well, not me personally, but the Falcons maybe. Betts had a great 06 season when he took over for Portis, but other than that...I dont think that he is anything special (for a back up). Portis is very good, but I think he is best when he gets around 300 carries in a year, not any more.

                                Cowboys should be flopped with the 49ers. Other than that it is okay
