You're comparing RB's within a couple of draft picks of each other to QB's several rounds apart.

To get the 1st team you'd have to use a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round pick, and even with that you'd have to be VERY lucky to net that team.

With the 2nd team you're spending a 1st, 2nd, and 8th round draft pick.

To even out those teams in terms of draft picks you'd have to give the 2nd team a 3rd rounder (Ward or CJ) and the 1st team an 8th rounder (Jerome Bettis maybe). Put those in and add up the points again...

Either that or take sub Barlow for Bettis on the 1st team. Either way, the comparison you made isn't really a valid comparison.

Okay,maybe this year,but these were players on seperate teams drafted LAST year.Green was #1,C-Pep#2 and Barlow in the fourth,due to Hearst being there.

Well then it's even worse, DD only started 10 games last year, so using his stats isn't exactly fair.

And even still, Barlow in the 4th compared to Brady in the 8th isn't even either.

Ahman-1st round
Cpep-2nd round
Barlow-4th round

Priest-1st round
DD-undrafted
Brady-8th round

perhaps:

Priest-1st round
Jamal Lewis-2nd round
Mcnabb-4th round

Or you could stretch it even further and add one of the 7th round QB's like Pennington, Green, Mcnair and the 2nd team would get a 4th round WR compared the 1st team's 7th round WR.

Okay,I'm going to just say that we are never going to agree on this point,I believe you can do just fine not taking 2 RB's 1-2,you feel the opposite.At the end after all is said and done,let's post our season stats and see.Just in good fun!I just don't want to argue the point any longer.

Never did I say you had to take 2 RB's 1-2. All I'm saying is that if you're going to compare them, do so fairly. You clearly skewed the players to fit your arguement, and not just by a little bit.

Okay,one last reply and I'm done.I used players the original poster mentioned,and as he didn't have enough to compare,I had to take someone of equal value from last year and work it that way.That and experience in where people were drafted in my league.By the way,no way Jamal Lewis and Priest Holmes on the same team.Unless someone brain farts----HUGE!Didn't even happen last year.

And yet, even with Lewis in there, that team is still less skewed than the original team you listed by an enormous 45 draft positions.
