Based on pontential this debate isn't even close as Reggie Bush has more potential than any running back in the past decade.

Based on current prefromance and talent it's easily Stephen Jackson. He was the most underrated player in the NFL last season and puts up great numbers in receiving and running.

I don't know that Bush has that more potential than Steven Jackson. Jackson has amazing combination of size, power, speed, agility and soft hands. Bush certainly has the x-factor potential but he'll never be close to the inside runner Jackson is.

It's really hard to compare Bush to any RBs in the league, besides Briwn Westbrook. However, I'd put them in this order:

Steven Jackson
Deuce McCallister
Fred Taylor
Reggie Bush
Edgerrin James

Cosign that list. It's a close call between Bush and James though.

honestly everyone knows steven jackson is the best in this list. i do think though that fred taylor doesnt get much respect here. he's a back with some decent bulk on him but he definitely has break away speed which many people dont think he does. it was show last season as he broke many lone runs. also of this list he has the highest career yards per carry at 4.6; the only downside to him is the injuries, but in the past few seasons they haven't bee as severe as early. for me he's #2 for that list. i cant say edge is too great because he was behind an extremely solid passing game for a long time, but then again i cant write him off because he's behind a bad line now. he's definitely a toss up. mcallister is solid, but has never really separated himself from the pack as far as being a game changer, but then again neither has fred taylor, but when it comes down to it i feel fred taylor is a more complete back as he is a better reciever. bush seems isn't a running back or a slot reciever, he's in his own category, but as a pure running back he's not not too good, but then again steven jackson isnt the best pure running back.

I'd take Jackson. he's got speed, power, durability, he can catch, (not sure on blocking but insert here), he can break tackles or run by them......as previously stated, a top notch RB in this league
