it takes time to be the best, Parker has not had enough experience (kinda like the King James thing)

It's probably no suprise who I chose.

Shaun Alexander is way overrated if you're looking at how each of these RB's run. Alexander only got all those yards becuase his offensive line, when he gets hit even the slightest bit he goes down. I REALLY like Larry Johnson, but a lot of that was his line making it easy for him. But with him at least he can run over tacklers or stay on his feet. And or course, LT. I mean c'mon, how is he not the best? In his first 5 years he has more rushing yards than ANYONE. Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, Jerome Bettis, he beat 'em all. If he gets a capable O-line he'll get 2000.

Well this is a very simple to answer. LaDanian Tomlison without a doubt. He is the best player in the NFL to me. I have followed L.T. since his TCU days. I still root for the guy of course when he faces the Steelers I hope he doesn't gain a single yard.

I would put Shaun Alexander number 2. Ok so he has had a great Oline. Look at Shaun's production. He is special. Larry Johnson has to have a few more years of playing before being mentioned among the best. Tiki Barber has really turned it on late in his career. He has had some great years the last few years.

Cory Dillon is close to being done. Willis Mcgahee is very talented to bad there isn't much of a passing game to help him out. His career could be like O.J.'s Bills career. Carrying the Bills year after year. Warrick Dunn has been a good runningback but he is winding down also. Rudi Johnson is a very underrated RB. I know he is a Bengal but he is a very good RB that never gets talked about. Finally Fast Willie Parker. Had a very good year last year as a firstime starter. Willie has alot of upside lets just hope he builds off his solid year last year.

king james has never came through in the big game (willie parker has)

this poll is flawed without e. james. especially with someone like w. mcgahee listed (just cause he says hes the best doesnt mean hes even worth top 10 consideration)

l. tomlinson. why?

emmitt smiths line and team made him better whereas lt has made his line (and whole team) better.

this is a 3 man race discussion. throw the bottom 7 out the window and add e. james.
