MJD has been in the league one year longer than AP. Jones-Drew has three 1000 yard seasons while AP has had six. Peterson is far and away the best running back in the game. MJD, when healthy, is really good. Arian Foster is really good. Peterson is a monster. He and LaDainian Tomlinson are the best two running backs of the past 10-12 or so years, I think.
