Who are the most explosive NFL RBs?

Postby Teh Jury » Wed Sep 07, 2005 9:38 am

I just want an idea of which guys really have that breakaway gear..

I was playing football the other day and one of my friends who is smallish, (around 5'5 and 125) had mad acceleration. I mean after about 5 seconds a few of us could match his top speed but his acceleration was nuts. He had that breakaway gear and could change directions in a snap.

I know Kevin Jones has the breakaway gear. Who else?

Portis and Deuce are the two that I would say have the best home run ability in the league. Tiki, KJ, and JJ are all honorable mentions.

Once Portis get's some speed going, he's gone.

But believe it or not, someone that is fun as hell to watch is Mewelde Moore. That kid has some wheels for cleets.

I forgot to add Mike Bennett - he has the speed to break one long.

Also - I have heard that JJ Arrington has good acceleration as well.

BIG DEUCE has the breakaway gear? I thought he was more of a power back with his build..

This is what I thought too.

Michael Pittman always struck me as someone with that type of ability, although he's never really harnessed it. But I don't know if that's an accurate reading.

Give Michael Bennett or Clinton Portis a seam, and all you'll see are their asses and elbows.

Ahman Green. He's always had an extra gear.

Portis without a doubt is my #1 choice. "Fast" Willie Parker has that breakaway gear as well
