Lol, since when is Green Bay's line considered to be the best in the game?

LOL. So lemme get this straight, you consider this year a career year for Priest, but not Ahman?
Let's see here.
In 2002, Priest had 2200yards and 24 TD's in 14 games
In 2003, Priest had 2100 yards and 27 TD's
Yet you consider that to be an outlier and career year.
On the other hand, let's take a look at Ahman.
In 2002, Ahman had 1600yards and 9 TD's in 14 games
In 2003, Ahman had 2200 yards and 20 TD's
In fact, in Ahman's 3 years as the starter prior to 2003, he never even came CLOSE to putting up the numbers he put up this year. Is that not the definition of a career year?
Not to hate on Ahman, I think he'll be great this year. But to write off Priest on the basis of last season being a career year while at the same time advocating someone who possibly had the most textbook career year at RB in the NFL last year (only other candidate is Lewis) is a foolish arguement at best.
