    Top Five RB's Right Now!!

    1) LT- No doubt
    2) Priest Holmes- Until he proves otherwise
    3) Shaun Alexander- A TD machine
    4) Clinton Portis- The guy is good and now Gibbs knows it.
    5) Willis McGahee- Did you see his last college game? Did you see him last year? The kid is special.

    I know that I will see a name put up here that will make me say, what was I thinking, but as of this second this is how I would rank them. Please I want to know what you guys think and I would love to hear it or read it I guess.

    Cheers!!

    Where is Edge???
    Alot of people think Portis is losin it a little bit.
    I am wary of Priest Holmes coming back from that injury.

    I might swap Portis and Edge and Move Priest down a bit.

    1. Ladainian Tomlinson- The Michael Jordan of Runningbacks
    2. Edgerrin James- Speed, Power, Vision Great Hands
    3. Jamal Lewis- at 230 pounds, he runs mighty fast (295 yards all time record)
    4. Corey Dillon- a great runningback whose definitely a future hall of famer
    5. Tiki Barber- There are few that work harder. He can run and is a very very good receiver out of the backfield.

    Guys that are good
    Shaun Alexander, Priest Holmes, Clinton Portis, Ahman Green, Fred Taylor

    Guys that are gonna be pro bowl backs soon
    Mcgahee, Kevin Jones, Michael Bennett, Julius Jones, Kevan Barlow
    Vikings 1
    Lions 2
    Bears 3
    Packers 4

    Speed Kills.

    3)Shaun Alexander
    4)Edgerrin James
    5)LaMont Jordan (Just wait and see) he will have 1500+yards next year, or the year after, depending on how quickly he adapts to the system in Oakland.

    Re: Top Five RB's Right Now!!

    I for one kind of agree on the Priest ranking, however he has that feel for the end zone and he is older but at the start of his career he wasn't a feature back, so like I said until he slides you have to give him his respect.

    I didn't include Edge, because quite frankly he wouldn't be as good on another team and he has had a ton of carries over his career (he is still young).

    The Portis pick is not based on last year obviously, Portis is a stud and I hope someone saves it here so I can look like a guru or an idiot when he goes nuts this year.

    Cheers!!

    5)Mcgahee

    Priest Holmes is ok, but when he got hurt Larry Johnson did actually the same thing last year. In my opinion I believe that Holmes is overrated somewhat.

    Lamont Jordan- If he puts up anywhere close to 1500 it wont be because hes a good running back, but because he has Randy Moss on his team. I dont know much about him but hes probably overrated since he was taken by the Raiders kinda like Warren Sapp.

    Clinton Portis sucked this year. If he can get back to where he was at Denver hes good, but he had 3.8 yds a carry and thats the lowest for starting running backs last year.
