Walker had a better college career because he had a ton more carries.
Better running back to me is who was more talented and/or who you'd take in a one-game scenario with your money on the line. It'd be Bo for me. I don't pretend not to be biased, but his average yards per carry stats are superior to Walker in both college and the NFL (and I believe he has the second-highest yards per carry average in NFL history for a running back).
TURDS ALL UP IN THIS MUG. /// "2010 Auburn Tigers, my favorite team. Unbeaten in all ways." -- Dan Wetzel, April 4, 2013, 6:29 p.m.
Eddie Lacy had higher yards per carry in college than Bo
Lacy >> Bo
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
You should keep talking about pro football. You seem to know a lot about it.
"Put Jim Brown, Bo Jackson, walter peyton on the teams that Herschel played for and they have no where near the probowls that they had."
fair enough, but with only 4 years in the NFL many RB's could have a much better ypc. Barry Sanders was one of the few who got out before he started to dwindle.
it would not be hard to do this all day long
Poor guy. You've always needed the extra help. Allow me to assist you.
First, I never said that was the only reason I'd take Bo over Herschel. It was simply an added point.
Secondly, the entire quote was "his average yards per carry stats are superior to Walker in both college and the NFL."
(I bolded the part you need to pay extra attention to to help you further.)
So, when Lacy averages more than Bo Jackson in the NFL, as well, then you would have made your initial point, even though it was a misguided one in the first place.
You see, to have a "point," you need to address someone's entire statement and not pick out a single part to make yourself feel better.
Give it another go in a little while after you've had enough time to process this entire post.
Barry Sanders did not have a higher YPC than Bo Jackson after 4 years or after 515 carries.
I think coolstorybro will shut up now.
Why So Serious?
Yeah Walter Payton played on some sick teams dood. Joe Montana's stats leaped off the page once he had Jerry. Bo played on some insane stacked Raider's teams.
Each post you make dumber than the last.
Another point, Bo in his entire NFL career only had 515 carries.
Walker in his first pro season had 412 carries.
Point being is that Bo barely even made a blip on the radar in the NFL. Was he good? Yes. But he only played 38 games and only started like 20 of them.
Bo JAckson isn't even in Barry Sanders league.(NFL)

ok, never said he did
I just said that being 2nd best with only a 4 year 535 carry career is not that impressive. Most statistical analyses will throw out out-liers.
i'm not sure of the accuracy but this site says he is 10th and behind 2 active players
1. Michael Vick (7.0), 2. Bobby Douglass (6.5), 3. Randall Cunningham (6.4), 4. Greg Landry (6.2), 5. Steve Young (5.9),
Did Walker also play and excel in the MLB? Yeah, didn't think so. While walker was going through preseason camp soaking up football practice and knowledge, guess what Bo was doing... Dominating the MLB all star game.
Give up and go home and try for a better result next time.
It's not an outlier when the number of running backs with a higher YPC after those exact same amounts is incredibly small.
Where did I say he was?
no, most professional players are smart enough to focus all their time on 1 sport
at using baseball to compare football players
using he played another sport argument is weak as hell.
we are talking about football here. football. if you want to talk about who the better athlete was, then do that. but, the area being talked about was who was better in the pros. And Bo barely even played the equivalent of 1 full season as a starting running back in the NFL.
(and I believe he has the second-highest yards per carry average in NFL history for a running back).
He is second, as I said. Or third if you include fullback Marion Motley who played in the '40s and '50s.
I thought you were comparing the two b/c you said BO had a higher YPC than Barry.
Did I address you peasant? Yeah, didn't think so. Go play in traffic. The adults will let you know when you can participate.
Michael Vick is a direct snap RB, damn sure not a QB
that makes 4th IMO
Quality over quantity bro, although I'm sure you know nothing about that.
this is a message board thread not a PM, quit being a pussy and stay on topic
