  • Rank the NFL's top 10 RBs

    Stemming from this shit from Shady:

    http://www.gq.com/story/lesean-mccoy-chip-kelly-trade

    1. Eddie Lacy
    -The guy does it all. Terrific ball carrier, terrific receiver and PFF gave him a 97.8% pass-blocking grade last year.

    2. Marshawn Lynch
    -Beastmode is a freakin beast. He forced 117 missed tackles last season.

    3. DeMarco Murray
    -Only issue with him has always been health. He caused 77 missed tackles last season, 2nd best amongst all RBs...a joke that people call him a product of the Cowboys offensive line.

    4. Arian Foster
    -Again, health has been the only issue. Guy is an elite ball carrier and does the little things well too.

    5. Jeremy Hill
    -The next great young RB in the NFL. Only a matter of experience keeping him from #2 on this list. I like to call him the 4th-quarter back...he gets better the more and more he gets fed the rock.

    6. Le'Veon Bell
    -Obviously he put up ridiculous numbers last year but I'm honestly not that impressed. He gets a lot of touches but rarely makes more than one guy miss.

    7. Lamar Miller
    -The next Jamaal Charles...speaking of which...

    8. Jamaal Charles
    -Still an elite back. Injuries slowed him down last year but he is so dynamic with the rock.

    9. Frank Gore
    -The best pass-blocking back in the league, never leaves yards on the field and is a gamer. I think he sets career highs in receptions and possibly TDs this year.

    10. Adrian Peterson
    -Historical performance is the only thing keeping him in the top 10. Honestly, no idea what to expect this year. He's 30 and has 21 NFL carries in the last 18 months.

    Just missed:
    LeSean Mccoy, Jonathan Stewart, and Justin Forsett.

      and how many RB's have more total yards than Forte did last year on this list? Serious question.

        There are several questionable things on here so let's start with Matt Forte.

        He averaged 3.9 YPC last year. That's fucking pathetic.

        You know who else averaged 3.9 YPC? Terrance West and Joique Bell. That was 25th amongst RBs.

        You know who averaged more than 3.9 YPC? Bobbie Dixon. Tre Mason. Chris Johnson.

        He's slow, indecisive at the line of scrimmage, and just not a very good runner. His longest run last year was 32 yards. That was also his only carry over 20 yards....for the entire season. Do you know how fucking bad that is?

        Oh but he did catch 102 balls in Trestman's CFL offense. If that's what you're hanging your hat on, be prepared to be utterly disappointed this year.

          Why is Charles at 8?

            and he's more productive than all but like 2 running backs in the NFL. Im going to meet you at Red Lobster and fight if you keep up this Forte hate.

              Marshawn is #1. Don't even care about the rest. He could run for 1400 with five of us blocking for him.

                Smaller backs tend to wear down at certain touch thresholds faster than bigger backs. He's small and has had nearly 900 touches the last 3 years. That is scary.

                    Silky knows nothing as the OP clearly illustrates.

                      1. Eddie Lacy — Could be a better receiver, but that's honestly the only knock on him.
                      2. Marshawn Lynch — I think we'll start to see his numbers decline a bit this year, but for now, it's hard to put him much lower than this.
                      3. Le'Veon Bell — Excellent receiver, solid pass blocker. What's not to like?
                      4. Jamaal Charles — A threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball.
                      5. Adrian Peterson — I honestly have no idea what to expect from him this year, so this seems like a happy medium.
                      6. Arian Foster — An elite RB who can't manage to stay healthy.
                      7. DeMarco Murray — Excellent runner who made the most of getting force fed in Dallas; it will be interesting to see him in Chip Kelly's offense.
                      8. Jeremy Hill — He could honestly lead the NFL in rushing this year.
                      9. Alfred Morris — There's a good chance this will look bad in a few months, but put him in a zone blocking scheme and he has been one of the most productive RBs in football since being drafted.
                      10. C.J. Anderson — Reminds me a tiny bit of Emmitt Smith with the way he runs the football; he's going to rush for a billion yards this season.

                      Just Missed:
                      Frank Gore — The pass blocking is still there, but I expect his numbers to take a dive this year as he turns 33.
                      Matt Forte — Past his prime and no longer operating in an offense that maximizes his strengths.
                      Lamar Miller — Way too streaky for my liking.
                      LeSean McCoy — Watching him run behind a depleted Eagles line exposed him as a stunningly bad decision-maker.

                        I don't get these Lacy at #1 rankings at all. When was the last time he faced an 8-man box?

                          If you're going to keep taking snipes at everyone else, you might as well just post your list.

                            Lamar Miller and Knile Davis next in line.
