he can only get better.


*sigh*...Saints fans...

I'm not saying Deuce should be ranked behind Ricky, but I know some people who have him at 3, 4, and some 5. 3 and 4 REALLY bothers me. And FF is a lot about situational stuff, and you could go on and on about that. I think numbers 5-8 are very hard to rank, but I cant see how people have Deuce so high on that list. I agree Ricky gets the ball too much, but I think this year could be the year it is stopped, or atleast the year Ricky doesnt run into a wall and have to bounce out of it. If you look at it, if Ricky returned to his 2002 form vs. Deuce's 2002 form (which everyone is high on, but they have no more reason to think Deuce will go back than Ricky will), then Ricky will be the better back to have...

I am more freaked about the people who have him at 3 or 4, I personally AGREE with 6-8 for him, and though I dont believe in him at 5, I could see where youre coming from. So, for those who have him at those positions, please tell me what your reasoning is.

Oh, and btw, Deuce was #7 in RB scoring last year and Ricky was 9

i really dont see what his team has to do with it. if that factored into the equation then i think we'd all drop LT in our rankings about 15 spots.

Dear Guest,
Situation has a good deal to do with FF; LT is the exception, not the rule.

Good teams (usually) score a lot. High scores = lots of TDs. Lots of TDs = your RB is probably getting a good amount of TDs. RB with lots of TDs = top 5 RB.

1650 and 16 TDs, thats damn near LT2 numbers. I'm a big Deuce fan but even I think that's a little bit high.

I would imagine that was what he was trying to say. If you notice his statement completely contradicts it self: "we all have Ricky behind Deuce, never behind him."

I'm assuming it was a typo and he meant to say "we all have Ricky behind Deuce, never in front of him." Which holds with your rankings, and 99% of the rankings out there.

I'm assuming he meant "we all have Ricky infront Deuce, never behind him.".....thinking he just wrote "behind" twice be accident....

Well he definitely said "behind" twice by accident. I think it makes more sense that the mistaken behind was the second one, so that it read "we all have Ricky behind Deuce, never in front of him," because, well, "we all", and just about every mock and ranking out there, has Ricky behind Deuce. It wouldn't make much sense to say "we all have Ricky in front of Deuce" when almost no one does...

Not to mention, he's already said in this very thread a few posts up:
