    they basically got both of them right, AD's weakness should be pass blocking, and i love CT's, its AD lol

    Re: ESPN.com Ranks RBs


    I can agree with the number #2 ranking at this time, but I believe it will change during this season or next.



    As for CT,
    WAY UNDER RATED,
    He could go in and Start for most NFL teams at RB......

    I'll probably get some crap for this but I'm going to say it anyways....

    I don't think AD should be rated #2.
    I think it is too high for him.
    I think he needs to play more than 14 games in the NFL to crown him the 2nd best in the league.
    He certainly showed last year that he easily has the potential to be #1, but I think we need to give him at least one more year before we crown him.
    Hell, he arguably played as well or better than any other RB in the NFL last year, but one season is still one season.
    A GREAT player performs at a high level year after year.

    the only RB id think of putting ahead or AD besides LT is Stephen Jackson, ill take 3rd overall RB though

    I would take CT as our starter over a lot of the players rated above him...

    willie parker. underrated. portis. overrated. and gore when healthy is a top 5 guy.

    AP at two works for me. a lot of the former elite backs struggled last year, so AP being the new kid on the block gets bumped up
    We're bringing purple back.

    AD is in the right spot but CT should be in the top 20 if not higher

    Yeah, there were a couple of head-scratchers there. Marion Barber is NOT #8, and Brian Westbrook #4? Come on...

    Are you saying BW should be higher or lower?

    Expand on that please....




    But for myself, I easily would put BW in the top 5 RB's in the NFL.....he is a dam good RB, one of the best in the NFL....
