Funny, the guy that stood out as too high to me wasnt ball but rice. Feel like he got that rating based on his pro career.
Panthers suck, split time with other dude.
And he made a Pro Bowl.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
How the heck is Marion Barber III not even in the top 100?
Him and Maroney shoud easily be top 30.
Kenjon Barner better than Jonathan Stewart
But based on what? The eyeball test. The problem is always the same when you rank guys at any position. What's the criteria. Stats, draft rank, etc. in college ,teams have systems and yes, some cater to RBs like UW. But I don't know how you can say definitively , those guys are better.
Side note. I am going to hear all year how Braxton Miller is a great QB. Funny thing is, him throwing the ball is what you hope he does. Strange for a great QB
They got some dude from Northwestern I've never heard of in the 40's
and while Peterson is the best RB to come out in the BCS era, he only spent 3 years in college and was hurt for seemingly half of it. There are guys that did more in college than him.
If a pro career matters, Ron Dayne should come off the list completely then. That guy had speed you only find in the midwest.
My football knowledge must just be much more superior than yours.
I'll cut you some slack for being a homer though.
Note: If Braxton Miller wasn't in the B1G, you wouldn't hear about him at all.

I still can't get over your comment about Drew and Rice being better in college. Rice and Ball were similar and Drew wasn't even even in the same ballpark. Thanks for playing
Haven't typed or referred to Drew a single time. Keep up.
Rice was better, IMO, but he is about 10 to 15 spots top high as well.
not sure if serious?? Deangelo Williams has had a pretty good Pro career. I would bet a small fortune that Williams ends up with a better Pro career than Ball.
I'm not arguing that Ball is the best, or ninth best or whatever. I'm just asking how you are so certain that those others were better. Is it just your opinion or do you have some formula that you aren't disclosing. First it was Ball played against weak Defenses. That held no water. Now you just have superior knowledge? I'm not being a homer but you seem hell bent on proving your point and I haven't figured out how you are going about it. I'm not saying you are wrong and you aren't the only one with that opinion. I am just looking for someone to tell me their formula or evidence as to why they believe that. Other than "the B1G is weak"
Of course it is JMO.
I am not trying to say Ball is bad. He was a great college RB. I just think he is probably in the 40-50 range based on what I have seen. Obviously it depends on how you slant the basis for decision. If you look only at stats, he is closer to or in the top 10, but if we are talking about who is actually the best backs, then he should be about where I mentioned earlier, IMO.
their lists are always awful - you can tell they put a lot of thought into the first say 5-7 of every list then shvt goes downhill.
to prove this list is bogus - Michael Turner (former Falcon) is 1 spot ahead of Quiz Rogers (Falcon).
lazy at best.
Finally decided meth wasn't such a bad idea huh
I was just getting some bad stuff. Thankfully you got me the hook up!
