    Is Foster closing for the Astros now?

    MJD? :kubepalm:


    I don't think Arian Foster deserves to be ahead of CJ or AP yet, but seriously, MJD is incredibly overrated IMO. Solid back, but he is not #3 and is barely in my top 10.

    MJD is not overrated at all IMO. Dude is a beast.

    If anything Foster probably doesn't deserve to be tied with him at #3.

    I think that he is a legit talent, but he HAS only done it for one year. If I were starting a team I'm not sure that I'd take him as the number 3 RB...

    I think dude is a beast, but I'd like to see him do it one more year before I solidify him as a top 3 back.

    I don't see how someone can say MJD is not deserving, considering how much we have to watch him run over the Texans every season.

    Foster is correct at #4. This league has seen its share of one year wonders.

    IMO, Petersen is hands down, the best RB in the league.

    Foster's not 4th.

    I think Chris Johnson is too high in the rankings and Frank Gore and Ray Rice are too low. Otherwise they are pretty agreeable to me.

    3 of the top 4 are in the AFC South. Great

    Stuff like this is just a beauty contest. It doesn't mean anything. It's all about your own personal opinion about which guy you like or don't like and all the biases you have about the kinds of runners you like and don't like and the types of offenses you like and don't like.

    And it will all change next year.

    I want to be in a fantasy league with the NFC North blogger. Go ahead and take Steven Jackson. I'll settle for Foster or MJD.

    Not to mention him taking 7 guys ahead of AJ.

    That NFC north blogger just proves (again) why ESPN is mostly a gigantic pile of crap. I mean, I'm a ****ing assclown who sits on his ****ing couch all day long and even I know about NFC North RB's (And how basically it's Adrian Peterson and some guys). How the **** do you get paid to report and blog about football and you don't even know how good a tailback like Maurice Jones-Drew is, when he's been playing since 2006.

    I really don't even care that they put Foster 8th or 2nd or 3rd or whatever, because he's only done it for one year. But to say that you don't know bout an RB who has basically been the face of the Jaguars franchise for the last few years is just really really ignorant.

    Since I don't know where to post this, and I don't to start a new thread for this video, I thought I'd post it here because it's about RBs—Arian Foster and MJD to be exact.

    Arian and MJD both have a 5 second cameo in this video playing Call of Duty: Black Ops.

    And back on topic, yes, the NFC North blogger is completely clueless about the rest of the NFL. I'd be a little hesitant to put Arian Foster at #3 just yet. He had one good year, but so did Slaton.

    Peterson and CJ have holes in their game. ADAP should be better than he is, but something just never seems right with him. CJ can be taken out of a game if you hit him hard. He also looks for the outside WAY too much. Foster has only done it one year, but if his game is like last year, he is the most complete back of the group.
