Best back in NFL

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If you\'re talking talent alone - pure ability - I say that Deuce is top 5, but has dropped slightly b/c he gained weight and paid for it in break-away speed He\'s lost his 1st gear and his top gear ...

Best back in NFL

If you\'re talking talent alone - pure ability - I say that Deuce is top 5, but has dropped slightly b/c he gained weight and paid for it in break-away speed
He\'s lost his 1st gear and his top gear because of that weight gain. Those were his bread and butter his first few years. Until he gets those back I have him around 13.
In terms of production, Deuce should be lower, but keeping in mind his numbers over the last 3 years (DANNO) I don\'t think he\'s out of the top ten. ...
Are we rating them on what they\'ve done over the last 3 years? I didn\'t read it that way. In that case he\'s around 5.

if he can stay healthy (big if), he\'s definitely a top 5 \"prospect.\"
Isn\'t that kinda exactly what I said?
There\'s that big IF again. Hmmm, we sure are qualifying Deuce posts with a lot of IF\'s aren\'t we.
Insert \"IF\" analogy here.

Since I have to watch Green a lot, I may under-rate him a little bit, but I have to say that I firmly believe he is not a top five back.

Here\'s mine:
1. L.Tomlinson
2. P. Holmes
3. S. Alexander
4. C. Portis
5. C. Dillon
6. Duece
7. C. Portis
8. A Green
9. E. James
10. J. Lewis

The list is pretty subjective -- are we to list based on talent or production last year -- or production over the course of their career -- or importance to the team. I would have a different list for each -- But without listing - I cannot see how any list would not have Priest Holmes in the top 5 (if not number 2). I also agree with whomever said to put Vick in at number 2
