I really hope you guys dont think Im anti-SA or anything along those lines. All Im trying to do is try and get you away from Yds and TDs as a measurement of talent - they are not.
LOL. Yards and touchdowns aren't a measurement of talent?? What is? Your 40 time? That is the most ludicrous thing I've read in a long time. All you have to judge a running back by is the yards. Touchdowns admittedly, aren't always a sign of greatness, but when you score them at the rate SA is scoring them...they most definetely are.
So if yards aren't a measurement of talent..what is? Seriously? I read another one of your posts claiming that if you were starting a team, you wouldn't put SA in your top ten for rb's. Again..laughable. What on earth can Edgerrin do that SA can't? Jamal Lewis? Un-believable that people think he's anywhere near Alexander. Why? What has he ever done to prove that?
I read that Alexander isn't great at moving the pile and getting the tough yards. Yet he scores more touchdowns than anyone...not the sign of someone that can't get the tough yards.
I read that Alexander isn't fast, elusive, or doesn't seem impressive...Yet, he has ALWAYS run for longer distances than any other rb in the league.
I challenge anyone to give me a single reason why I shouldn't think of him as one of the top two rb's in the league, talent-wise, fantasy-wise or whatever? The reason can't be "because I watched him one time and wasn't impressed". Tell me something he doesn't do great, and prove it somehow.
