Edgerrin James if healthy is better than Ricky Williams. He's better than every back in the league except Marshall Faulk. Don't forget we're talking about a guy who led the league in rushing his first two years in the league. Even Ricky Williams says that when healthy Edge is just plain the better back, because he's faster.
problem with Indy is that they have become one dimensional like the Rams. even with edge james, they dont have good balance. not like they have in the past anyways. and i disagree about he is back to past form. 26 carries and 99 yards is not back to form. sorry. this was the jags, this wasnt the Patriots or Raiders.Originally posted by ckparrothead
I like Miami but saying that Miami has more weapons on offense now is just plain insane. Edgerrin James basically looked like his old self against Jacksonville. If Marcus Pollard was playing and healthy he's still better than ROOKIE Randy McMichael I don't give a rats @ss how exciting he is and how many times he gives us the shimmy. Marvin Harrison is the most consistent WR in the NFL PERIOD. Did you know that no WR in NFL history, not even Jerry Rice, has caught more passes than Marvin Harrison in their first 6 seasons in the league? Its true. And Qadry Ismail, I may not like him as a #1 WR, but he's a decent #2 WR and the Colts have basically already shown that if you concentrate on taking away Marvin Harrison then Qadry Ismail can and WILL burn you.
Oh, and are we forgetting about Peyton Manning? You know, the smartest QB in football right now (as per Zach Thomas). Fiedler over Manning? Whatever the hell someone slipped in your drink I want some.
But luckily for us as superior as their offensive weaponry is to ours, our defense is far superior to theirs...especially in the DL and the Secondary.
