    Re: C. Taylor > Edge

    Don't think it really comes down to a comparison of the RB's but rather the O-line.
    Put Edge behind our O-line and bet that his numbers would be up although not as good as when he was in Indy.

    Sure glad that Taylor has held his end of the bargain up though. He is a work horse.
    Hope he can stay healthy all year and our right side gets better each week.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Hard to say, you have two different styles of coaching and two completely different levels of skill on the offensive lines.

    I still wouldn't have minded seeing Edge here, but C. Taylor is doing one heck of a job.

    You do realize this is a Fantasy Football forum, right?
    And that the article was talking about it in terms of having one or the other on your Fantasy team?

    You still reeling from the ass-kicking the Utes got last Saturday?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: C. Taylor > Edge

    I forgot his name, but some sportswriter predicted that Chestor Taylor would have a better season than Edgerrin James this season.

    And so far, he's correct.

    But I still don't think Taylor is a better running back than James. If Edgerrin James was running behind our offensive line, I think his numbers would be close to what he put up in Indy.

    Don't get me wrong, I love what Taylor has done for our team, but he ain't better than Edgerrin James.

    Good observation =Z=, we're talking fantasy here.
    Big difference between fantasy and reality....well, for some anyway.

    I agree with that 100%.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Re: C. Taylor > Edge

    Edgerrin James, a extremely well footed runner and has excellent hands for catching those dink,and dunk passes out of the backfield, but hes a high dollar player, I like Taylor for the simple fact he's getting the chance to be a starter and he seems like a real blue collar guy,
    hopefully he turns into the grind it out or break off a big one back I think he will
