    Wrong, Chris Johnson's career avg is 4.7. Check your stats.

    So...like I said...

    Adrian Peterson: 4.8
    LeSean McCoy: 4.7
    Chris Johnson: 4.7

    Chris Johnson shouldn't even be in this conversation. He's a disgrace to runningbacks. He's terrible. As for LeSean McCoy, when does he ever face 8 men in the box? Rarely/or never! Peterson is by far the best back in the league. Stephen A. Smith is a Philly homer and Skip Bayless hates Adrian Peterson. He calls him Adrian "Pedestrian" if that's not hate, I don't know what is.

    Where are you getting your stats from? Marrdro's spread sheets?

    Sorry, I did have McCoy & Johnson's numbers flipped, but both still had higher averages than AD's average over his past 3 years.

    Again, here are the stats that say you're wrong;

    LeSean McCoy: 5.0
    LeSean McCoy, RB for the Philadelphia Eagles at NFL.com

    Chris Johnson: 4.7
    Chris Johnson, RB for the Tennessee Titans at NFL.com

    Adrian Peterson (Last 3 years): 4.8, 4.6 & 4.4 respectively. Avg. of those 3 years: 4.6
    Adrian Peterson, RB for the Minnesota Vikings at NFL.com

    5.0>4.7>4.6

    Of course you do. And if he erroneously said the Vikings were 6-2, you'd like that better too.

    Not if you want to compare apples to apples

    Johnson in the last 3 years is 4.2

    5.6 > 4.3 > 2.8 average is 4.2

    I don't think thats higher than 4.6 but I might be missing something with selective math/stat keeping

    Ha, Singer only looks at Peterson's past three years? Once again, Singer's Peterson-hate parade continues.

    You cant take an average for each year, total them, and divide by 3. That is not a Yards Per Carry Average. That is a season average

    Total Rushing Yards divided by total number of rushing attempts gives you a Yards Per Carry Average.

    Here you go

    Carries Yards
    McCoy 2009 135 754
    2010 207 1080
    2011 155 637
    3 Yr Total 497 2471 4.971830986 Average

    Johnson 2009 107 302
    2010 316 1364
    2011 358 2006
    3 Yr Total 781 3672 4.701664533 Average

    Peterson 2009 167 798
    2010 283 1298
    2011 314 1383
    3 Yr Total 764 3479 4.553664921 Average

    Based on Yards Per Carry only, McCoy would be the better statistical back. That is why stats only tell part of the story.

    Make sense.
