Today we look at the best Running Backs in the NFL.
In only 8 season he has rushed for over 9,000 yds. He's on this list because until recently has has been healthy. He burned our Eagles in the first game with 145 yards. And he will continue to be a star running back. With an improved (by getting younger) offensive line, he's gonna have a shot at contending for the most yards in 09.
He's was the AP before AP. If you needed a yard he got you five. But he as seriously fallen because of toe (I think) injury. He has had over 11,000 yards in 9 seasons. But this is a crucial year for him, showing that San Diego still needs a number 21 behind Jason Rivers.
3. Michael Turner the Burner
The Falcons made one of the best FA pick ups last year. This guy is a beast. He had the second most yards last year (behind AP). But he has to show he's not a one year wonder. This guy will continue to lead the NFC south in rushing and be a critical factor in the Falcons playoff hopes.
Our guy is easily number 2. In 08' he got almost 1,000 yards in only 14 games. His career yards are over 5,000 and has played a full season, which is impressive and bad. But also has over 3,000 yards receiving in that time. For now he is the most important receiver for the Eagles. Although he's number 2, he's actually close second, b/c he's so versatile.
1. Adrian Peterson
Most rushing yards in a game as a rookie. Led the NFL in rushing yards in the second year. He really is "the cashier". The vikings are screwed w/out him
