He's probably the funnest to watch at least. Seems like he has a 40+ yard touchdown every game.

A lot of great backs to watch this year

Ameer
Gordon
Gurkey
Buck
Coleman
Perine
Henry
Wilson
Freeman
Williams/Collins
Duke

Hoping they usher in a new running game oriented offense

Nice, he is too good not to play, although it might help him in the long run. Chubb and freeman are eerily similar to me, I thought both peaked in high school and were too slow, but both have balled out

Lol I have some hits and a lot of misses like most. I only watched one game of Carter's and he got dominated by a 5-11 tackle, then heard a lot of people saying he was a better athlete than player. Chubbs is a workout freak so you never know if he looks great because he took working out seriously in high school or if he was just a natural beast, it turns out he was the latter.

Actually, anyone who followed Chubb at all in HS knew how hard he worked. You can keep talking out your ass if you want, though.

Reading comprehension? Defensive? I knew he was a workout freak, he has had videos out for years of him pulling impressive numbers. What I was saying is I didn't know if he looked great because he took weight trading more seriously than most high school players or if he was just a natural talent.

But no you got sand all in your puss, I would too if my team had only been relevant once in their entire history. Enjoy not winning anything meaningful with the "best backfield".

Who's better? Melvin Gordon? Hasn't played a good rush defense yet this year, not to mention he's playing behind an offensive line that is bigger than the packers O-line. If your argument is for Tevin Coleman or David Cobb, I'll gladly listen, but stfu if your a melvin gordon phaggot

Yeah, the same Melvin Gordon phaggot who only needed 9 carries to break 200 yards the last time he played those tator tots from Lincoln ...dude's yards per carry is staggering the previous two years, not just this season.

I'd agree with this. In terms of just running the football out of the backfield, I believe Gordon is the best but in terms of all-around versatility as a football player, Gurley is the best at the position. Dude can run, catch, return kicks, everything.

How come no one mentions Melvin Gordon's duds against LSU, whose defense is horrible this year, or Western Illinois, who can't even muster up a winning record in FCS, but everyone holds Abdullah "poor" games against him, which was against one of the better defenses in the country in michigan state (nevermind the fact that they are keying in on stopping abdullah,and he has had 2 100+ yard games against them in the past) and Mcneese state, who could beat most big ten teams? No, nevermind the fact he has 4 200+ yard rushing games, just can't give him any credit, right?

Abdullah is probably the best back we have has since Roy Helu, he is better in my opinion. Im pretty sure most of his yards have been gained after contact. If you tackle him before he runs by you of course...

Michigan State has a very good defense no doubt but you cant fault Abdullah in that game, he did what he could. They swarmed him all game to force Tommy Armstrong to throw which he did not do effectively. And our leading receivers were injured in the game..............I wont even talk about how we were one catch away from winning that game, because thats none of my business.

Gordon had a dud against LSU? Dude pretty much ripped off 140 yards in the first half against them...offense went completely in the ****ter in the second half without him and Wisconsin blew a huge lead.

As a matter of fact, in the last season and a half against name programs from outside of the Big 10, Gordon is averaging just under 9 yards per carry against those teams...Abdullah is barely averaging over 5 against such teams in the same time period. And, for what it's worth, Gordon's numbers came against Arizona State, BYU, South Carolina, and LSU and Abdullah's came against UCLA twice, Georgia, Miami.

I would say overrated is more applicable to Player A, who received First Team All-Conference honors over Player B while needing almost 100 more carries to surpass Player B's rushing total by a measly 85 yards.

I only question because Wisconsin churns out running back after running back, and they never pan out to anything special in the NFL. No hate, I like Gordon, and I know he's a special talent, but his numbers are a product of Wisconsin's play-calling, like every other back from there.
