    Hey all,

    Who do you think is going to have the best back field in the comming season. Since it has now become a RB by committe pick the best.

    Mine is going to go for the Texans if they get Bush, Davis and him wow that could prove for some major fantasy points!

    Some rumors are surfacing that Holmes will be back for next year. If that's the case, you can't deny that KC would have the best backfield with Priest and Larry.

    true. a major thing you must consider is the O-line though. the texans MAY have the most talented backfield, but i don't think anybody here believes they will lead the league in rushing yards.

    The Green Bay Packers will lead the league in rushing yardage next year.

    thats my pick.... we are using the same scheme as the leader last year in yardage did (atlanta) and our running backs are way better than what they had. ahman, najeh, gado, is better than warrick dunn, tj duckett.
    and no one here can name an olineman on their team so i have a good shot

    Hope your right but remember a big chunk of that rushing yardage came from Vick. Without Vick's yards the Falcons were about 10th I believe which still ain't bad. Favre or Rodgers.....neither will run the ball.

    Gado following the blocking of Henderson and Bernstein(5th round pick).
    Ahman Green as the 3rd down back plus a much improved Herron.

    Kansas City, without a doubt (that's not counting us, of course) :D

    Larry Johnson is a beast, and Priest Holmes.. well, he's Priest Holmes.

    Adrien Klemm, Kevin Barry, Scott Wells, Will Whitacker. They're no good, but we can name them.

    Back in 97 and 98 I could've told you every guy on the 53 man roster plus his jersey number. That was a waste of brain power so I no longer concern myself with such trivial details.

    Barry and Well are actually pretty good. THe jury is out on Wells (fits good in the zone scheme) A lot of teams were interested in Barry as a starting tackle for them.

    Whittaker played one year.

    Klemm on the other hand... well yeah he should get cut..

    Who was interested in Barry? He was a free agent for a long time and we didn't exactly break the bank to sign him.

    Detroit
    San Francisco
    Houston

    To name the top contender. Detroit offered him more money than the Pack I believe but he chose Green Bay because they said he may be able to start at OG. There going to try him there.

    If Davenport can stay healthy, he is by far the best RB on the team.

    Bears:

    T Jones 4.3 y/g 1336 total
    C Benson 4.1 y/g 272 total
    A Peterson 5.1 y/g 391 total

    Pretty good, considering the Bears had no passing game.
