Ray Rice
Shady McCoy (Dunno how you forgot him)
Forte
AP
McFadden
MJD
Foster

^I'd say those guys are the definitive top 7 based on ability alone. All are strong, elusive, good pass catchers and have break away speed. After these guys it gets into a debate based on what attributes are more important for a runningback.

Jstu is our most complete back - strong as an ox, fast as hell, good pass catcher, but not very elusive. Dlo has a level of creativity and elusiveness however that is hard for any other back to match, just like how Chris Johnson has a level of speed other running backs can't match.

So yea, it'll come down to what your personal preferences are in a running back at this point. I'd say stewart sneaks into the top 10, but to argue williams into there you need to really value his play style. I personally do, I think he's the most similar player to Barry Sanders since Barry himself. Sure you get some dud plays because he lacks speed and power, but god dammit he's so fun to watch and you always know he's gonna break a big one the next play.

it's hard for a bucs fan to recognize a top 10 back...they haven't had one in 17 years.


Or an elite QB.....

Freeman looked like poo last season and they are talking about concerns with him this preseason....his avg and stats suck.

He averaged 5.4 ypc last year. He's averaged 5 ypc or more in 4 of his first 6 seasons, and has a career average of 5.1 ypc.

You were saying?


Preach to him brother.....


It is hilarious when guys like that just make poo up and then get called on it.

From a statistically point of view, NO.
From an individual aspect, YES.

If the stat you use is yards per game, then I agree with you.

If the stat you use is YPC, then I woudl say both are Top 10.

5+ YPC is damn good.

Im talking as a whole full package running back. Im not putting Dwill or Stewart in each categories and saying yeah hes good here and hes bad there. If Williams and Dwill wasnt splitting snaps with each other, they'd be up there with Forte, McCoy Foster, etc.
