    Re: ESPN.com Ranks RBs

    AP is the best back in the league. because:

    he is more explosive than any other player when he gets the ball.

    when number one (LT) and two (AP) faced off head to head AP set the single game rushing record..that says a lot for Peterson being the best. also note his average per carry..way better than LT.

    AP can do it all: run, catch, and return.

    he is younger than LT and has 'less mileage' he has also proven he can consistently make plays.

    and finally he brings the whole package of size strength and speed. from a physical standpoint, no other back can compare to him. so he is obviously the best back to me.
    Q: At your age, can you handle a full season?
    A: I m 37, number one. I took my family to Perkins a couple of days ago, and they didn t hand me a senior citizens discount card, so I feel pretty good.

    its rankings right now, not for the next 10 years
    LT is better than AD still, AD is a better runner, but LT overall is better package than AD. And plus, LT has been proven he can do it year in and out, the end. LT is better

    There you have it. AD was terrible at blocking last year and saying he could catch is streching things a bit. Now I'm sure he is working on those things and will only get better and more complete, but until then LT is the best overall back. He really has NO weaknesses.

    eh blocking is overrated. thats what the oline is for right?? ha...and why would u want to use AP to block when u could give him the ball or send him on a route..

    blocking is over rated? ha. your funny. When D's send 7 guys after our QB, im sure AD should be out for a pass, not helping blocking. By saying blocking is overated does show much for u as a fan, blocking is the fundamentals of the game, w/o it, there would be no football.

    and its not only blocking, LT is a better reciever that AD, and u cant argue that.

    LT is better than AD, its not that hard to figure out, even MOST of the people on here that love AD know he runs 2nd fiddled to LT.

    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 am gonna have to side against you on this one ... I think he could start for a handful of teams, but not MOST ... he would probably be splitting carries on a lot of teams for sure.
    I love CT and think that somewhere between 20-26 is fairly accurate. He flat out WOULD not start in Philadelphia, San Francisco, St. Louis, Dallas, Washington, New England, Buffalo, Miami, San Diego, Kansas City, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Jacksonville or Minnesota.
    At BEST he would split carries with the NY Giants, Arizona, New Orleans, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh.
    Some of the other places he would definitely be in the running, but would not be a lock too.
    He is a great change of pace back ... a solid runner who fits our system well, but I don't know that he is an every-down, every-week back in the NFL.
    I did notice a couple of teams where I think he would fit great though ... Houston's scheme would use him well, he would be VERY interesting in Cincinnati as Rudi looks to have hit a wall and I think someone like the Jets would love a back like Chester.
    But I am perfectly happy with him staying right where he is.
    ;D

    thats why u play to his strengths..if he is supposedly a bad blocker why have him stay in a block when "they send 7."

    anyways..i would take AP over tomlinson 100% of the time. he is bigger, stronger, and as fast if not faster than LT.

    it is close though, u cant ignore tomlinson's numbers. AP #1

    exactly, that proves LT is better, he has better number, and longevity, and he does not have to come off the field, like in the article says, he has no weaknesses

    He is a bad blocker. I don't know how anyone can deny that. Not even the most purple of AD fans. The reason they want to leave AD in there is to not tip their hand.

    The minute AD leaves the field & C-Tay steps on, the defense is going to think pass first, then run. With AD in there it's almost inevitably going to be a run. That's why he was shut down so much late in the season & why C-Tay saw success when AD couldn't. Knowing AD can't pass block, defenses keyed solely on him whenever he was in there & didn't respect our passing ability & it worked time after time & shut AD down. We were predictable as hell.

    Once AD can begin to block with success on passing plays & the passing games gets better, defenses will be forced to respect both our passing & running game when AD is in there. Then watch out, the Purple Express will shine.

    Until that day, he will be #2 behind LT.
