I am disguted to just plainly agree with someone, since it's no fun whatsoever but i looked over the article and looked which names jumped on me and i had exactly the same names with the only addition that i think edge has lost more of a step than reflected by these ratings.

It's nice to see Westbrook getting some recognition.
BTW, Willis is too high up, IMO, and MBIII is too low.

Personally, I think Jackson should be in front of Parker, but it's anybody's argument.

Also, Marshawn Lynch in front of Joseph Addai, Fred Taylor and Marion Barber flabbergasted me.

Willis McGahee is way too high.

McGahee way too high, Parker just a little too high. Jackson is better than that, he had a bad line last year. Westbrook should be #3 and Jamal Lewis should be higher too, he had arguably the best year of any AFCN last year and is 29 years old, not that old.

I will say this, with Stalloworth and Edwards keeping teams from putting 8 men in the box and with that O-Line, Lewis is gonna have a huge 2008 season.

Even though I am a massive homer, I don't understand Jamal Lewis at 21... he is going to be 29 years old and is coming off of a 1304 yard and 11 TD season on one of the best offenses in the league.

At the same time the article fawns over Fred Taylor who is several years older and Tomlinson, who has more career carries than Lewis and is the same age.

Different style runners. Taylor and Tomlinson are more elusive than Lewis. Plus because of their versatility in the pass game they can always become very productive 3rd down backs even when they begin to lose a step.

But the magic age for rb's does seem to be 30 years of age. While of course it will differ slightly from player to player, Jamal has been a workhorse for his whole career. He may have a few good years left, but history suggests that it's downhill from here.

To say Larry Johnson is just a straight line runner is ridiculous. This writer obviously doesn't know LJ very well.

lolz at Grant that high.

I like the explanation for Grant:

16. Ryan Grant, Green Bay Packers. Grant's '07 success was no fluke. The Packers' line play is solid and he is a strong runner who can attack between the tackles and cut to daylight.

So he is success was no fluke because he says so? nice

Honestly, Lynch is a very good RB, but no way is he better than Fred Taylor, Addai, Portis, and Barber.

Mcgahee and Parker are also too high.

Obviously Jamal Lewis is a powerback, but he is no Earl Campbell. He is very fast, and his game is to get through the hole and into the secondary, where it is very hard for cornerbacks to tackle a 250 lb man running at full speed. Plus he is no slouch as a reciever, so to make him out to be that different than Tomlinson is a bit of a stretch.

Jamal Lewis is very fast? Yeah right.

And Lewis has 190 career catches. Tomlinson has 458. Yes, it's that big of a difference.

If he was a Giant, maybe. He'd probably tie. Becuz he's an iggle, he loses, but puts up a damn good fight. Probably knocks out Teel...

He's an iggle, and I still respect and like him. That's saying something

I've seen it a couple of times now, I don't get all teh love barber is getting, he is fine but i honoustly think the difference between him and lynch in the ypc is at least partly due to the ol of the cowboys and the fact he splits the carries. To put it in another way, lunch has had one good year as a starter, barber has had no year as a starter whatsoever. do agree on addai and portis though.
