    RB core ratings

    danski it is amzing how much credit a qb gets, considering the Panthers Defense and running game are the main reasons they got to the superbowl. Jeez give culpepper a defense that doesn't get a TD against them every 2 drives and we will be in the bowl.

    Oh yeah, before you GBers embarass yourself
    more Culpepper had more yards and better
    yrds per carry than your bottom feeder backs.

    Just the facts, and nothin but the facts.

    RB core ratings

    Frankly, this rating isn't worth getting into a pissing contest over. As far as Larry Johnson and Steven Jackson are concerned, they only have potential and haven't proved a thing in the NFL yet. If Holmes or Faulk goes down, the Chiefs and Rams could be in a world of hurt. Now, I think the top 3 RBs of both the Vikings and Packers are well proven players, and all six are capable of carrying the load if someone ahead of them goes down. I can concede that the Packers should be rated ahead of the Vikings right now if only for the fact that Ahman Green is such an awesome back now. That in itself is enough to give the Packers a SLIGHT edge.

    Alot of what i feel a qb should be is a leader first and foremost and so far I have yet to see leadership from Culpepper. Yes he is abetter athelete then the panthers qb but it was his leadership on the field that got them to the big dance.


    It is also a ranking of all the QB's on each team, and not just the starter. Daunte VS delhomme, isn't even close. Then they have old man peete and chris weinke??? Sorry but they don't have a good group of QB's, especially not the 4th best. That is like saying them ravens had one of the best groups of QB's when they won the super bowl with dilfer. They are ranking the best group of QB's, so you need to be able to look at what each QB would do in the same offense with the same players. Same with the RB's and that is why I say the vikes backs are better than the packs. The packs RB's are good, but have a great O-line, much better than ours. I also don't like the chiefs being up that high. Priest is the best in the NFL, but lj looked average at best last year. They will deserve to be higher if johnson can prove he can do something as a starter, like onterrio and moe did last year. Same can be said for the packers and fisher. I believe davenport has started a few games(i think 2 years ago) and done well, so he is somewhat proven.

    The ranking is for best group of RB's and we have the most RB's who have proven to be good starters. I think they are putting to much weight on each teams #1 RB. Yes, priest and ahman are much better than bennett, but we are 4 deep with good RB's. I bet if priest, green, and bennett all got injured, our rushing production would drop the least with our 2nd and 3rd RB's.

    Both Holmes and Faulk were out at times last year with injuries and their teams still clinched first round byes in the playoffs. It didn't hurt their rushing game any. Now could the Chiefs survive a loss of Holmes as long as we did with Bennett? No way to know unless it happens but when looking at the depth of their roster at RB they have one guy who came in for Priest a few times last year and did well and another first round draft pick who will more than likely succeed. Same for the Rams...in fact Faulk was banged up quite a few times last year and Gordon I thought did a very good job.

    I agree about the rams. They do have a really good backfield, but i have to disagree with the chiefs. Johnson never impressed me at all last year. The guy was a 1st round pick and didn't look as good as our 4th round pick. Also, priest holmes started every game for the chiefs last year. Their second leading RB had 112 yards. The vikes 2nd and 3rd backs are much more proven.

    purplehorn: he was not their starting RB! his job was to keep the rams running game going when faulk was out and he did that.

    muchluv: you're right i guess i thought holmes didn't start a couple games last year because of a hip injury. anyway that's a good point the vikings are much more proven behind bennett especially after last year. It would be interesting to see if the Chiefs could keep up their offensive pace without Holmes but I think if Blaylock and Johnson share carries they could. Just my opinion though.
