    That might be the silliest thing you've ever written, and that's saying something.

    Bo knows early retirement.

    They are actually pretty similar.

    Bo was my favorite player of all time but AD is changing that.

    Watch these runs and tell me there isn't a quite a bit of similarity between the two backs.

    Re: Childress sticks up for AD in AD vs.LT debate

    Bo was pretty cool.


    Career too short that is too bad.
    The whole baseball thing was a distraction also.

    The last clips.
    He ran in to LT.
    He lowered his shoulder into Lott.
    He ran out of the King Dome.
    Awesome!

    Watching him saddens me a bit.
    I try not to think about AD's possible career too much.
    I would hate to think that it would be as short at Jackson's.
    For a RB to have a career like Payton's or E.Smith's it a blessing.
    Those two guys were extremely blessed.
    Let's hope AD will be also.

    His yards did not total much, but he wasn't playing full seasons.
    Look at his long runs, 90 something, 90 something, and 88 yds.
    Wow.

    Bo was a great back, but different than Peterson.

    Jackson was raw speed and power, if he got to the second level, much like AD it was all over.


    But he lacked the lateral agility that Peterson has, look at the clips above, not really any impressive cuts.

    Agreed.
    Jackson had more straight away speed than AD. AD has more lateral agility.

    He also ran a 4.12 40 yard dash, still considered the fastest verifiable 40 time at an NFL Combine.
    In the strength department they are probably very similar.

    Outfield, 1-3 base, pitcher and catcher.
    Doesn't believe in the shortstop position because he isn't short and never stops......and he plays them simultaneously

    Not that there is a debate at thispoint and time but just because someone isn't playing a game doesn't mean one is better than the other.
    So if AP got hurt and LT played does that mean LT is better?

    Re: Childress sticks up for AD in AD vs.LT debate

    Bo Jackson could have been the best running back of all time in the NFL.
    I have never seen a combination of speed, power, and balance in one running back.

    I consider Walter Payton and Earl Campbell the best running backs I have seen play.
    Adrian Peterson isn't quite there, yet.
    Peterson could be one of the greats as well, but he doesn't have Campbell's size or Bo's speed.
    Then again, he he doesn't have to.

    The key for all running backs is staying healthy.
    L.T. is on the bench.
