          Jacobs height isn not a good thing. Bettis was short and ran low, while also being quite heavy. Jacobs runs upright, which makes him easier to tackle. Bettis was also faster and had better feet and vision in his prime.

            well yea i know. but he said Bettis was bigger which wasn't true.

            Also, I don't know if Bettis was ever faster than Jacobs. It might be close, but I doubt it.


            Silverback....still the best.

            +rep to Jakey for the sig

              Adrian Peterson and MJD would be a great 1/2 punch....

I think this year Chris Johnson was the fastest and he'll get drafted purely on that speed. No one thinks he'll be the best running back (or WR as most people see him making a position change when he goes to the pros), but he will have extreme values because of his speed alone.

                Brandon Jacobs is not a top-tier running back by any means, but he's in a class of his own because of the fact that he's the biggest running back in the league - and although bradshaw may be a better runner than Brandon Jacobs, he's not quite the blocker which also increases Jacob's value a lot.
                I don't know about that. I think Bradshaw did an excellent job blocking this year. Granted, Brandon had several pancake blocks on defenders (which is awesome to watch), but he will miss a block from time to time. I think Bradshaw did it all last year in limited playing time. He blocked, caught the ball very well, and as we all know he can run.

                A Marion Barber/Ahmed Bradshaw tandem would be awesome. Both have great vision and would make a nice duo together.

                  I'm gonna have to go with LT and Ladainian Tomlinson. It's worked so far.

                      Jacobs and Westbrook. My personal fave 2-back system: MJD/Bush.

                        Larry Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew

                        LJ is simply a beast up the middle and a touchdown machine and MJD would wear down defenses to the outside.

                          Ahmed Bradshaw would be part of the perfect 2 back system? I think we're stretching just a little bit now ;)

                                Has to be LT and AD. Those two on the same team would single handidly win a Superbowl.
