if you read the whole post, he and 2 other RBs are only in as the "old men" of the group as the other 9 of 12 listed are 25 are younger.
The only running back ahead of him that I don't agree with is Rashard Mendenhall. I do take offense with Gore being on the same level as Lesean McCoy

McCoy has shown he's a great receiver coming out of the backfield. hell the yr before last McCoy crushed it as a receiver. Gore gets hurt to much

I think their on drugs. I would agree with 6 or so. It looks to me like its based on team popularity to, not on rb talent.

no way. I don't think the Jags make the list.
Looks fine

Gore is not a top 5 RB anymore..sad but true

AP should be #1

Gore is better than him. Id put McCoy in front of Gore too

True, and I name Gore as my favorite current player.

As someone else said, I don't agree with Mendenhall being above him, especially the way he sucked it up in the super bowl.

Other than that, seems right.
I still think Gore is a top 7 running back.

This list looks more to me like Top 10 running backs of 2010, not Top 10 RB's overall.

Arian Foster has only started one season. Sure it was a great year but that's a small sample to base his ranking off of.

Um Ray Rice loses all of his goal line carries to Willis McGahee, or McClain.

He has Avg 550 + receiving yards the last 2 years
Rushing 1200 + the last 2 years.
In 09 he had 2041 combine yards with 8 tds.

Rice has more total yards the last 2 years compared to gore. Gore is hurt to much. It's a fair ranking. Plus Gore doesn't lose goal line carries to anyone.

Here's the matchup for both players for the last 2 years (total rush & rec yds & tds):

Rice: 3,817 total yards with 14 tds

Gore: 2,831 total yards with 18 tds


UMMMMM??????????????? Speaks for itself. Ray rice is legit. Especially since he splits the load with McGahee especially on the goal line
That's about right, but I think starting next year he'll be dropping lower. Hope they can get Big Dix spun up real soon.
