Similar numbers to LDT?!!!

Man, Clinton was averaging 3 YPC..... ANYONE could have LDT numbers if you got the ball 100 times a game.

Yeah, and DD was averaging more YPC, esp. when he got healthy.

All I'm saying that although Tatum may have more upside than DD, you need to factor in the fact that his stats are probably inflated because he is a Denver RB.

I mean, whatever happened to talk of Quentin Griffin being the next Barry Sanders? :p

He fumbled away a game against the Jags and then tore his ACL.

Clinton Portis ran for 1315 yards at 3.8 YPC

LaDanian Tomlinson ran for 1335 yards at 3.9 YPC

I'd say those numbers are very similar.

Hahaha, damn, i was hoping the secret would never get out that when we make a 1000 yard rusher, he's only good in denver!

But yeah, about tatum, we're dying to see what he can do as a full time starter, he played with a seperated shoulder in those games last year, but JESUS he's fast, faster than portis was for us, and that's saying something!

You also forgot that LDT outscores Portis by 12 rushing TDs.

And let's not compare LDT's skills as a receiver vs. Portis [which is one of the defining abilities of LDT!]
