    Fair enough. I had forgotten about the 15 game season.

    People are worrying was too much about CJ. He will be here when it counts.

    Unless your QB is named Rivers, Manning, Brady, Brees, Roethlisberger, or Rodgers, you HAVE to have an elite RB to succeed. Smart drafting? CJ WAS smart drafting; we got FAR AND AWAY the best player in that draft from the 24th spot. Show me the championship team who discards their young, first round studs instead of keeping them.

    You can't compare our situation to those of the Packers and Patriots. Those two team have arguably the best 2 QBs in the NFL. Any QB who isn't in the upper echelon will HAVE TO rely heavily on their running back. What do we do with the two first round picks we get for CJ if they pan out to be superstars and want to get paid? Trade them too?

    Good points. Let me clarify. I would not say CJ already has the better career (though I think he will with time) I'm saying that he is the most talented, and has reached a level of play that Eddie and even Earl never reached. It's an opinion. I'm a megafan of all 3 though!

    I, unfortunately, didn't see him play in person. But, I watched his entire career.

    From college through the NFL.

    He was a devastating runner.

    For those who thought Eddie was powerful (and he was), you should have seen Earl play.

    Tony Gwynn was batting .400 the year the baseball season stopped due to strike. Unfortunately, neither of them finished so it doesn't matter.

    It's it's speculation to guarantee Campbell would have got the 72 yards he needed. That's not a guarantee; great backs get held to 70- yards all the time

    I used to watch old games with earl on VHS and highlights. Payton is my fave RB ever right along with Earl.

    Chris Johnson FIRST 3 years ad compare to others

    2008 1,228 yards rushing 4.9 Average / 260 yards receiving 10 TD
    2009 2,006 yards rushing 5.6 Average / 503 yards receiving 16 TD
    2010 1,364 yards rushing 4.3 Average / 245 yards receiving 12TD

    Earl Campbell

    1978 1,450 yards rushing 4.8 Average / 48 yards receiving 13 TD
    1979 1,697 yards rushing 4.6 Average / 94 yards receiving 19 TD
    1980 1,934 yards rushing 5.2 Average / 47 yards receiving 13 TD

    Eddie George

    1996 1,368 yards rushing 4.1 Average / 182 yards receiving 8 TD
    1997 1,399 yards rushing 3.9 Average / 44 yards receiving 7 TD
    1998 1,294 yards rushing 3.7 Average / 310 yards receiving 6 TD


    CJ first 3 years= 4,598 yards rushing 38 TD's and 1,008 yards receiving
    Earl first 3 years = 5,081 yards rushing and 45 TD's 189 yards receiving
    Eddie George 3 years = 4,061 yards rushing 21 TD's 536 yards receiving

    Yes CJ is beating them BUT you fail to see that

    Eddie has 10,441 yards rushing, AND 2,227 yards receiving 78 TD
    Earl has 9,407 yards rushing, and 806 yards receiving 74 TD's

    Once CJ gets near that category then he can be THE BEST BACK we ever had. Until then he is THE BEST BACK we have
