    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...

    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 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.

    Well you-know-who has that undeniably awesome endzone flip move. That's like +3000 total yards alone.

    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.

    Jason Taylor believes that Earth Day should be canceled because steroid users should not be celebrated.
