Rank these RBs

Postby Vandelay-Ind » Mon Aug 23, 2004 3:33 pm

Put these 2nd-3rd tier of RBs in order of how you like 'em.....( I only dealt w/ starters, left off McGahee, Julius, W. Green, etc)

There are 17, rank 1-17:
Lee Suggs
Quentin Griffin
Corey Dillon
Chris Brown
Eddie George
Curtis Martin
Duce Staley
Brian Westbrook
Thomas Jones
Kevin Jones
Charlie Garner
Tiki Barber
Michael Bennett
Warrick Dunn
Tyrone Wheatley
Emmitt Smith
Travis Minor

(I consider these 15 the 1st pier- LT, Priest, Ahman, Alexander, Portis, Deuce, Edge, Jam, Henry, Rudi, Taylor, D. Davis, S. Davis, Faulk, Barlow)

Here's my stab at it:
1. Q. Griffen - doesn't get enough credit. Going to be really good.
2. B. Westbrook - no more RB by committee
3. C. Dillion - I know he sucked against the bengals but still should be pretty good
4. L. Suggs - looking fantastic in pre-season. Wins the job and puts up points this year
5. Thomas Jones - my sleeper to be in the top 10 by end of year.
6. Chris Brown - looks good and will put up early Eddie-like numbers
(The rest are pretty close so I'll just rank them w/o comment) 7. Bennett
8. Garner
9. K-Mart
10. Staley
11. Wheatly (if he gets the starting nod)
12. Barber (would be much higher if scored a damn touchdown every now and then)
13. Dunn
14. K. Jones
15. George
16. Smith
17. Minor

1. Brian Westbrook -- Will be the man and will get it done.
2. Corey Dillon -- Huge talent, huge space cadet.
3. Warrick Dunn -- Will be the starter, should be healthy.
4. Curtis Martin -- 1500 yds
5. Michael Bennett -- He's fast, but will he be underutilized?
6. Kevin Jones -- Best rookie RB this year.
7. Lee Suggs -- With reservations, could be RBBC
8. Quentin Griffin -- Portis value falling, Griffin rising
9. Chris Brown -- Tennessee is solid
10. Tiki Barber -- Fumbles a lot, Ron Dayne knocking.
11. Charlie Garner -- Oakland could finish first or last this year.
12. Duce Staley -- Do they really like Duce this much?
13. Thomas Jones -- I've never been too impressed.
14. Eddie George -- I can't see him factoring much.
15. Travis Minor -- Could be third-string by the start of season.
16. Tyrone Wheatley -- Goalline back.
17. Emmitt Smith -- Please.

1. Michael Bennett - he does not get enough credit
2. Corey Dillon
3. Brian Westbrook
{I have my doubts with Dillon and Westbrook}
4. Q Tip - could become huge this year
5. Duce - Bettis isn't a factor, he should have a nice season
6. C Brown - primed for a breakout year as well
7. C Mart - very solid, but no TDs
8. KJ - could be very good
9. Garner - Tampa Bay apparently likes him
10. Tiki - a lot of negatives, but a still a worthy #3
11. Suggs - does not have complete job security yet
12. Dunn - has the starting job but is far from a feature back
13. TJ - HUGE bust this year
14. Steady Eddie - don't expect much
15. Wheatley - will have to fend off Fargas for his job
16. Minor - a good chance he won't be starting
17. Smith - :-/

Dillon - Will just rock this year, NE is a good change for him
Griffen - Whens the last time a Denver rb sucked?
Westbrook - Always liked this guy.. definatly gonna dominate this year, and will get it all done since buckhalter might be out
Martin - As always, will get over 1k yards, who knows for td's tho
C. Brown - All the hype will come true for this guy
Garner - I think he's underrated this year, a new team will do him really good.. specially tb.
Duce - Really dont like him, but he's gonn do good I think
Bennet - Not used enough.. such speed. wow.

all the rest im not hot on..
suggs is gonna be an rbbc
So will Eddie
The Jones' have a lot to prove
Tiki, one word, DAYNE!
Dunn <= Duckett
Wheatly, Who even knows how it'll end up in Oakland
