Hunter without a doubt. The guy is our future #1 imo after Gore retires imo, assuming the injury won't hinder him. Hands are solid, he's developing into a great pass protector, and he's explosive.
he has amazing vision Imo...it seems like he gets every yard possible and some....can run inside and outside.
James was a rookie last year so his ceiling has not been set yet....learning from Hunter will only help him get better.
i hope we use both of them through out the season....they are insurance for each other, for us.
heck having Hunter, Kaep, James all in the back field at the same time could cause headaches for defenses....for key 3rd down situations. There is so much we can do there.
Hunter, and its not even close. If Hunter was healthy LMJ would not have even seen the field. I wonder how they will even use him in the coming season if Hunter is 100% healthy. Thats why the pick as such a head scratcher. Hunter can do everything LMJ can do on offense and he can do it better.
Honestly I was really impressed with Hunter before he went down. I knew he was explosive and when I looked he was averaging over 5 yards/carry; that's awesome. any back over 5 is worth holding onto for sure.
I thought hunter when James first took over as well but honestly towards the end of the year and in the post season i felt like something clicked for James. I thought he was starting to show some signs of understanding the offense and becoming more patience as a runner. If this continued or continues i could see him being as good or better than Hunter. Any thoughts on that?
I think this is why I really started this thread because i do think currently if Hunter picks up where he left off he is the better back but i could see James if he continues to improve his patience is more explosive and could be the better back in the not to distant future.
