The best, though, is any back on Madden when you have the run blocking adjusted way up and you follow your blocking back with the speed button on.

edge is only sweet because of the threat Peyton manning brings to the line. you play the run, you get burned on the pass. you play the pass, you get burned on the run. take peyton manning away, and edge is just another 4 ypc guy

Just because you are #1 in stats does not mean neccessarily mean you are the best player at that position. A lot of RB's have missed several games this season due to injury and other reasons. You also forget the clots have one of the better O lines in the NFL. Look at the stats that the Chiefs and Broncos RB's put up this season. Are they all top 15 RB's in the NFL?

Well why dont you cry about it?

First off, this is OUR opinion of the top 15 RB's in the league. If you want Edge to be #1 then make your own list. Just be glad you have a top 10 runningback.

Well he is a rookie, and hasnt even played a full season. He does have a bright future with the cowboys, and im sure he will be on these list with a few more years of good solid play, which I expect from him.

I was wondering the same after seeing this:
Quote:
Kevin Jones - 711 yards SINCE week 9 4.8 average tied for second best Pro Bowl Alternate his Rookie year
Since Week 10

Julius Jones - 597 yards, 6 TDs
Kevin Jones - 530 yards, 3 TDs

Not that I think either of the Jones' don't belong in the the top 15 (or maybe both belong out of the top 15). Just thought it odd that Kevin made his list based on that criteria while Julius was left off.

and top 10 WR, and top 10 QB, and top 10 DE, and top 10 C, and top 10, TE, and top 10 LT.

Maybe because it's 630 yards , not 530

The only stat JJ is doing better in is TD"s

Kevin Jones is also tied for 2nd in the league behind Shaun Alexander with for runs +20

2nd in the league among starting runningbacks in Yards Per Carry.

Then i take into account, that as KJ has exploded in the NFL, he has been running against stacked defense because no team respects Joey Harrington who can't even throw on 8 in the box. Say what you will about the dallas passing game. They will throw the ball, and can move the chains doing so. Detroit Can't. We are talking Kyle Boller bad.


But this isn't going to take us anywhere, it's not really even a contest.

If KJ plays the entire year next year, He will have at the least 1400 yards. ( think he is capable of 1600 personally, but I am going to be modest and say 1400.)

I will bet my avatar on that. (and as some of you know, I only bet on sure things ^_-, how is that lions avatar treating you fellas btw?)

Top 15 means quite the whole league?
W. Green has nothing lost in that Top 15, and although i could make a point for Duckett, Dunn or any other RB who is job sharing, it's tough to compare them to that bunch of guys above.

You're right. I missed Week 10. Then I guess that puts Kevin a whopping 33 yards in front of Julius.

And "only" by twice as many.

Passer ratings:

Joey Harrington - 77.4
Vinny Testeverde - 74.3

If you average them out over the games they've actually played:

Julius - 24 carries, 102 yards, 1 TD
Kevin - 15 carries, 72 yards, 1 TD every 3 games

But don't worry. Most of us in Texas are pulling for the Lions. Well, those of us who can get past the Harrington/Carr debate. With so many Longhorns playing for Detroit, we can't help but pull for them.

I think we're all past the Harrington/Carr debate. When Ihategeeks is coming in here and saying that Harrington sucks and Carr's the better QB the debate seems over.

I don't really agree with him though. I think Harrington's just going to take a little longer to work out than initially expected.
