    Talent wise no. Production wise, AP gets the nod, but the poor ball handling is a BIG, BIG problem.

    I agree that it's very much correctable, but it hasn't been corrected so far.

    Fumbling that much, with Grant fumbling so little, closes the gap between the two.

    I agree with those two statements

    Didn't A-Rod put up some impressive numbers of running the ball?
    Like wasn't he one of the top rushers?
    If he can rush farther than Grant, then why not let him do it and get the first down?
    They gotta do whatever it takes to win games.

    Everyone keeps praising him as underrated,etc but really i dont see it. especially with the way the offense is set up and how good the receiving corps is now, i dont think many could stop the passing attack even going all in. All i see time and again is grant running up the middle, hitting the line and falling over for 3 yards. not impressive at all

    First of all, its not the same. Grab a calculator and you will see Grant has a better per carry avg. Believe it or not they do round numbers lol.

    Minn gears the offense in 2 of the 3 seasons towards Peterson while GB has always been a passing style offense. When Minn doesnt have a starting Quality QB of course the RB is going to look better. We target the FB, TE, and WRs on short yardage situations, Minn normally doesnt thus Peterson getting more love in the red zone.

    Not being a homer at all, I am just bringing up a fact that Grant avg more yards last season. Is Peterson better? Sure. By much, no not really. I had enough of Ahman Green dropping the ball all the time, Im glad to see a RB

    I can't believe you guys were arguing over .04 yard avg difference between Grant and Peterson.

    When you do your FF draft this year and both Grant and Peterson are available who are you taking?

    I said if peterson is so much better why does grant have a higher carry avg last yr, which he disputed instead of getting a calculator. I just think Grant doesnt get the respect he deserves and Peterson gets a little too much.

    FF and real ftball are very different. Michael Vick was one of the best FF players to have but I wouldnt have wanted him as a starting QB back in the day. But to answer your question I stay away from both for various reasons. Peterson because he keeps declining in yrds per carry and Grant because I dont like to stack my team with packers.

    the calculator disputing .04 is useless to me, b/c the 2 backs are different...do you really want to go by simply yards per carry??? do you have any idea how many players are above that 4.4 average?? based on the point your making, Aaron Rodgers is a BETTER RUSHER THEN BOTH OF THEM let's make him our tailback then...you can't compare apples to oranges & like I said before TALENT is not measured by METRICS

    it's a game of inches, I agree, guess what Peterson gets those inches when his number is called upon, I can't say I can rely on Grant to get those same inches Peterson can get

    I knew I should have put that in there that CJ was gone already because it is a consensus that he is going to be people's #1 pick.

    YPC is an ok barometer but you cant solely rely on that number you do have to add in the amount of rushing TD's they had as well.
