But that doesn't mean you should take anything away from what he has done. I'm not even a big LJ fan but he is clearly one of the best RB's in the NFL.

    Plus maybe defenses were keying on him alittle more this year after he ripped it up in 8 games during the 05 season. One thing though he sucked in the play-offs against the Colts. Still trying to figure that one out.
    i know its a great year, but hes not a great RB, hes a good RB, he in the same situation as shaun alexander. BUT 1700+yards and 17 TDs in 16 games is weak compared to 1700+yards and 20 TDs w/roaf in half as many games. He was brutally forced to run the ball an set records with carries, and based on how "great" he is he should have had way more production than he did last year

    I was really hoping LJ was going to leave the Chiefs and maybe we'd make a run for him, but that was a pipe dream

    LJ is a great back, the dude has been something special since he came into the league. He's got all the tools to continue to be productive. Although great is a relative term based on your own deductive reasoning as to what defines a great back.

    As long as we get Willie some rest and somebody who can spell him and be productive at the same time we'll make sure that we have a fresh Willie Parker come January, not a worn out Willie.

    Ok I'm so glad you're the final judgement on greatness News flash you have to be good period just to make the NFL. I guess we should take Emmitt Smith's records and accomplishments away since he played behind an awesome OLine as well?

    Well Troy Polamalu for sure. I'm not a big fan of Larry Johnson but I do think he is one of the best RB's in the NFL. I can't name five RB's I rather have then LJ. After LaDanian Tomlinson who is clearly the best in the NFL then LJ enters the conversation.

    LJ is a great runner... he may have a good line, but he breaks a lot of tackles. Couple what he's done in the NFL with the fact he was the ninth player in NCAA history to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season makes him a great runner.

    He didn't have a great o-line at PSU... he just ran over everybody.

    He's a beast... quit hatin. <>

    Well if Bob Sanders means that much to the Colts team then he is the MVP of the NFL.Now I'm just kidding about the MVP talk.
