it's just poor judgement to believe that slaton or johnson will be the top 2 second year RB's without any other consideration.
and from the general consensus, people are under the impression that it's 'not a contest'. which. it is.
I don't think the OP only put CJ and SS because he thought they'd be the two best for sure. I just think he wanted an opinion on two fairly similar rbs from the same division that also had similar first year stats.
i voted for Slaton because i think his team is going to be better this year and i think the titans are going to regress so while i think they will have statistically similar years, i think slaton ends up doing it for a better team. (yes i just said that the texans will make the playoffs over the titans...)
Trust me, you're not as original a thinker as you may believe :)
From my comprehension, it's a comparison between Johnson and Slaton because of their similarities they share and not an assumption that they'll be the two most successful RB's next season.
Johnson had 1,228-yards, 4.9 YPC, 81.9 YPG, and 9 TD's.
Slaton had 1,282-yards, 4.8 YPC, 80.1 YPG, and 9 TD's.
I get why people would initially think that the question is insinuating that these two RB's will be the best next season, but in reality, there's a reason for the question being specific. They're two home-run threats coming off extremely similar rookie years.
Forte is awesome. I thought he was amazing in the Titans/Bears game. But, not being involved in this discussion is by no means a slight to him or any other RB's. He's just not a part of the specifics. It'd be like me going into a thread asking, "Who will have the better season: Darren McFadden or Felix Jones?" and going, "What about Chris Johnson?" Someone would no doubt post and go, "Uh, maybe because he didn't go to Arkansas?"
