AP should be #1
and Ray Rice????
Gore is better than him. Id put McCoy in front of Gore too
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
Ray Rice has a pretty good line blocking for him, Gore doesn't. Rice has had competent coordinators calling plays, Gore hasn't. Rice has a QB that can burn the defense if they only focus on the running game, Gore doesn't. Therefor, Ray Rice is not the sole focus of any defense, Gore is.
Take those numbers and throw them in the trash.
Man, these stats are so... statistical! Boo numbers! BOO!
Forgive me for not laughing at your pathetic display of sarcasm.
You want numbers? OK.
Ray Rice played in 16 games in 2010, had 307 carries for 1,220 yards and 5 TDs. Frank Gore played in 11 games, carried the ball 203 times for 853 yards and 3TDs. Gore's numbers extrapolated to 16 games would look like this: 295 carries for 1,240 yards and 4 TDs. The numbers are almost identical, so people who can only rely on NFL.com's stats pages to compare players would assume they're about the same. Then there are those of us who realize that Ray Rice had good coaching, play calling, blocking and some anonymity when it came to opposing defenses' game plans. Gore, on the other hand, had the worst coaching in the league, the most predictable play calling in the league, bad blocking and was the sole focus of most defenses all year long, yet he produced as well as Ray Rice. Not to mention Ray Rice is not even in the same league when it comes to blitz pickup.
Gore >>>> Ray Rice.
But since the numbers don't spell it out for some of you, you don't get it. That is cause for .
