Out of all of them who would you want on your team?

I put Maroney, I like him before the draft last year. He is cheaper than bush.


I would also like to have a shot at Jones Drew. He had some good production.

I would still take Reggie Bush. He got better as the season went on. Maroney, Addai, and Jones-Drew all had fine years, but Bush is still the most talented out of all of them. 1307 total yards doesn't hurt either.

Maurice Drew. The guy was underrated in college as a result of playing in the shadows of Reggie Bush, but is showing everyone that he can play.

He is fast, powerful, and a good receiver. What more do you want?

Maroney for sure, he fits our style best in my opinion. One cut and go, go, go!!!

Reggie would have gotten both of his knees blown out behind our line, I'm very happy for NO and us...

Not as nice as Maurice Drew's 1377 yards.

I don't know, Addai's 1406 is pretty slick.

I don't know how anyone wouldn't want MJD. He's the man.

MJD is a physical specimen. Ask me in the preseason and I say DeAngelo Williams. I think he'll be better than any of these guys if he starts, but I'll take my chances with MJD.

If you add Maurice Drew's return stats (because we know ESPN loves to with you know who) then he has 2250 yards.

I like all those guys....

But Im still going to roll with Reggie....

i take MJD also. there is a reason bush was so productive this year--deuce mcallister. if bush is having to carry the rock 25 times PLUS flared out on pass plays when he is not carrying the ball, plus returning kicks, he is no where as effective.

before the season i said deangelo williams. right now i'm going with jones-drew however. 13 rushing touchdowns & a complete package at runningback, is a strong receiver out of the backfield, and suprisingly to me is a serious threat returning kicks. the kid's fast, strong, and versatile ... i was extremely impressed.

Bush is the most impressive of the group as a receiver, but probably the
least impressive as a running back.
But Maroney would be oh so effective in our ZB system and IIRC actually
ran behind an OLine in college that used that scheme, so he already has the
tedchnique down. But he has both good speed and runs hard inside the tackles.

Wait till he injures himself on an end zone flip move. The spin should be interesting.

I voted for Addai. Great pickup for the Colts.

Considering the Texans' staple screen pass for the majority of our passing plays, I'd take Bush. He seems custom fit for our little dump passes.

I like Maroney and Addai as backs, though.

I'm a big Maroney guy. I think he runs hard, is tough and can also show some burst. Runner with attitude.

MJD is the best out of them all. He can run and catch and return kicks. I would love to have picked him up but the Jags got him in the late second. If he had just fell to the third, I would have picked him in Spencer.

I like Addai, he seems to be the most complete back from running, catching and blocking.

New Orleans Saints... Finished the year #1 in total offense.


Not as nice as Maurice Drew's 1377 yards.


Jax..... top 10 total offense..... top 3 rushing offense.

I don't know, Addai's 1406 is pretty slick.

uh...... it's the Colts.

DD did the same thing on the worst team in the league as a rookie....... but "we" say he's OK... a decent runner..... nothing special.

I like them all, but went with Maroney. Love the stiff arm.

good point. DD got 1382 yards from scrimmage and 8 TD's from scrimmage (same as bush and addai).

I went ahead and voted for MJD but I like Maroney but Williams has the ability to go for 1700 yards a season.
