    I don't know why there is a hard-on for Frank Gore so much?...Now don't get me wrong he is a fantastic RB...But he only has done it for one year...Where Willie has two years of good football under his belt...Yea Gore had more yards last year but Willie scored more TDs. A Steelers record for TDs in a single season.

    Now if Gore has 1500 yards this year and 10-15 TDs then by all means take him over Fast Willie...I just want to see him do it again....

    Jackson because hes an ANIMAL and is a hell of a reciever

    Mccallister because hes (see steven jackson)

    Honestly willi falls here then on my list of RBs....LJ, Alexander do not make the list of the top 5. Gore is #5 for me

    I'd take LT for sure! But, as others have said, it seems as though Tomlin and BA are setting the stage for Willie to have a great year/career. So, I'll reserve any other picks until next year.

    Go Willie!!

    I just want to see Frank Gore have another good season before ranking ahead of Fast Willie.....Hey Willie has two good years under his belt...True his 2005 coming out party wasn't like Gore's 2006....But considering how raw Willie was then that makes his 2005 season better then it was....We all saw what type of back Willie can be last year...I think he can be even better in 2007...What could hurt his numbers though if the passing game takes off and has a larger role in the offense.

    Again I'm not arguing that Frank Gore isn't a good RB...The guy is a badass but I just want to see another 2006 year or better from him....Thats all.....

    LT no doubt. Then probably LJ or Alexander.

    I would have said Alexander in his prime...But he is getting up there for a RB and his best years might be behind him now...

    I think Alexander still has a few good years left on the wheels but he has fallen a bit with injuries and subpar OL blocking.

    Gore was money last year for FF for me, but yes I agree he'll need to show consistency before he's considered among the elite. All indications are though that he seems to be the real deal so we'll see.

    Stephen Jackson is kind of the forgotten back when people talke about the best in the business many times. The dude runs hard and strong and is a helluva receiver for them too.

    Jackson is a badass no doubt.....I think Alexander is breaking down....I know he had 100 yards against the Bears in that play-off game...But you can tell he didn't have that same kind of burst he use to have....Seems like he is lossing a step....

    I think Gore is a very good RB....

    Yeah I think the Alexander has definitely lost a step but even with a lost step he's still better than 2/3 of the RB's in the league

    Jones-Drew has the potential to really break out, Fred Taylor is too fragile anymore but makes a good mentor.
