Our friends at PFF have just compiled their list of the best, and worst, RBs in the league, in terms of "Elusiveness," their term for broken tackles and yards gained after first contact.
They've done this annually before, but this is for the last three years, cumulatively.
Of the Top 15, for the last 3 years, it's with great pride that I see that #1 is Jonathan Stewart, #9 is DeAngelo Williams, and #15 is Mike Tolbert.
If you're going to run a backfield "by committee," what better group than this?
I'd publish this as a FanPost, in hopes of getting a better viewership than these FanShots receive, but hope those of you who look at the FanShots appreciate the importance of having 3 such effective, powerful, and elusive RBs.
The comment is made that Thomas Jones "should be used as a calibration tool for offensive lines, because he will get you exactly what is there from the blocking in front of him and no more."
Hardly the case with our guys. "God bless the child, who's got his own."
