Re: Sports Illustrated NFL Backfield Rankings

He looked at all the starters and ranked them, and then the backups and ranked them. And, as mentioned, imagined if Morris wasn't in Shanahan's system. I actually don't totally mind him underestimating Morris. But I think he's really undervaluing Helu, who had a pretty strong season back in 2011. For that matter he's even undervaluing Royster. And I'm not a fan of him ranking guys who haven't taken a snap (like Christine Michael) above Helu.

But whatever it's his opinion.

Re: Sports Illustrated NFL Backfield Rankings

this list is a joke we all do realize that right. Mo and his thunderous 1600 well earnt yards aren't enough to crack the top 10 I guess lol. Helu is super slept on. We he got his chance a couple back he looked very good at times as rookie despite running behind an OL that was playing NOwhere close to how we play now.

Morris gets no respect. I don't care what system he's in. 1,600 yards is 1,600 yards. Also didn't he lead in league in yards after contact?

RG1-shoulda lost his job to P-Dub in the preaseason, too fat, washed up, showed he couldnt lead TD drive after TD drive in the preaseason because that was just luck."
I like this.

Honestly, this list is beyond stupid. How can you rank the top rushing attack, a 1,600 yard running back, and a top-tier fullback, as one of the worst backfields in the NFL? But hey, whatever. These rankings don't reflect the talent of our backfield, they're just someone's obtuse view of reality.

Re: Sports Illustrated NFL Backfield Rankings

alfmo finished #3 in the rookie of the year vote, so he has to have some talent, right?

whatever, i'm done. I completely disagree with the ranking though.
