  • RB vs WR

    I was having a debate with a friend about which position is more important in a teams sucess. I said WR is more important, because you look at a team like Atlanta and how they can run on anybody but, there receivers can't get open. Which leads to Mike Vick playing poorly, which leads to alot of 8 in the box. Thats just my arguement, I'd like to hear from what you guys think.

    RB. He touches the ball more, he drives the team. Look at Arizona last year. Great WRs, but they failed beasue they couldn't run. At least ATL is still in the playoff hunt...

      Another thing to keep in mind, is look how much harder it is too find an elite WR. Then look at how many RB's have sucess early on in the nfl.

        RB's are more important, but they're also much, much easier to find.

          ...It has nothing to do with the RB. You would think you'd notice since they have Edgerrin James and still can't run.

          Elite WRs are way harder to find. They can produce regardless of poor QB play or a poor line.

            i think it really depends on the system. If it is the WCO then you need the run to set up the pass. But if you are in a pass happy offense, saints, colts... then of course you're gonna need good receivers.

            I will say though, i think the quarterback makes the receivers. Put Troy Williamson and Mike Williams on Colts with peyton and they'll be who they were suppose to be.

                RBs get the ball more, but are "easier to find".

                WRs get the ball less, but are "harder to find".

                The question is "more important to a team's success." If RBs get the ball more, then they are more important.

                    Also, you can have a great running back and still have a terrible run game but if you have a great reciever, your passing game will at least be decent.

                          Definitley a RB. A very good RB touches it around 25-30 times a game. A very good WR touches the ball around 7-12 times a game.

                          But it's very hard to compare the too. And you could make a case for a very good WR makes the TE more open, other WR's more open and opens up holes in the running game.

                            No, a very good RB touches it 20 times a game, only four players have ever touched the ball 25 times a game. WR is 6-7.
