Ranking the Best Running Back Tandems in the NFL: Matt Miller, Bleacher Report

You shouldn’t defend the gore rating because of what he did 5+ years ago... if a team signs Jim Brown right now, would you defend the ranking if he was listed above current RBs? If you watched Gore last year, you would see that he’s past his prime by a LONG shot! Being an ultimate pro doesn’t mean a diddle if he still can’t produce... which he can’t. He’s even a terrible 3rd and short RB. He literally has zero value on the field... in the locker room is a different story(maybe he should coach). But to use his name as any credibility of a productive tandem running the ball is bonkers at this point in his career. 

Wait is Jim Brown available? Have you seen his guns? 😁 I do believe Gore is better than he showed the last 6 weeks. I understand your point but believe he helps in ways beyond his yards only.

The way people evaluate players is incredibly inconsistent.  In the case of the NY Jets, they gave LaVeon Bell a pass for a horrible season in 2019 and looked at Frank "Older than Dirt" Gore as a positive addition to the team that will make them better.  We'll have to see if Bell can bounce back, but I sure don't see it as a sure thing.  If Bell isn't good for 1200+ yards this season, there's no freaking way the Jets are anywhere close to #3.  I can accept Buffalo's low rating as Singletary's late surge last season may not have been enough to warrant a lofty projection this season, and Zach Moss as a rookie is something of an unknown, but there's some crazy thinking in that list (like Washington having a blank spot that gets ranked even with Moss).

I’m really happy with our group here. We have two of the best young RB’s in the league. Every carry they’re going for at least 4.

I love our potential but you got to slow your roll

 

I think Moss is going to be great but to call him one of the best young running backs in the league already is crazy

 

By that thinking every running back taken in the second or third round in the last two or three years is one of the best young running backs in the league

 

There's a lot of good backs in this league,  he needs to carry the rock before we can call him one of the best young backs

I have no idea how this dude came up with half the grades and places in which he put teams. 

 

Singletary was a top 5 back in the NFL in YPA, with 5.1, yet he's rated a 79?

 

Yea...no

Vikings are way too low.  Jets are way too high.  Gore could be a surprise cut.  Other than that, it's not a bad list.

The scoring is very fair. They underrate us because of a lot of unknowns.

 

So let's run it down their throats and laugh at this clown at the end of the year. I want to see Moss square up a CB, its borderline euphoric to think about.
