    Longevity and Greatness. Gore has longevity and has been good. Preist Holmes was great, but no longevity. It takes both. I say no...

    Yeah I agree with that. Gore has been as consistent as can be.

    Coming out of the U he was suppose to be the next thing since sliced bread until he got injured.

    He belongs in the NFL just based on NFL RB longevity.

    Talentwise, Fred Taylor is probably the best RB I've seen. Dude was a golden stud, but just couldn't stay healthy.

    Come on now. He was good but even outside being hurt he wasn't that good. If you wana pick an underated back since 2000 you should go with jamal charles.

    Jamal Charles was a great RB outside the tackles. He made his living on screen plays and toss sweeps.

    And by me saying Fred is the one of the best RB I've ever seen, I'm just talking about his style of play and pure talent.

    He averaged like 5 ypc unless I am thinking per play.

    Looked it up. While not the main back most years his career average was 5.4 yards. That is damn good

    Because he seemed to always break an 80 yard toss sweep for a TD. Charles was not a between the tackles RB. Nonetheless, he was a really good RB when healthy. Just don't expect him to convert 3rd and 1 up the middle.
