The Best in the League

1When you talk about the best running back in the league there are a lot of names you can mention. These are the guys you here about week in and week out. The NFL has a lot of excellent backs and the most noted is LaDainian Tomlinson (LT), the stats are great for this guy. So I will let you know who the best running back in the league is.

He only has 383 yards on 83 carries a 4.1 yard average which is good for the league; he just needs to get the ball more.

What about the other big name backs? That’s just what it is what about them. Priest Holmes and Jamal Lewis two of the better backs in the league are rarely being talk about. Neither one of them is playing up to there potential right now. Holmes is in Kansas City getting his
