Default what RB is more impressive: Speed Back or Power Back?

what I.Y.O?

a Barry Sanders or a Jim Brown?




to me, Speed backs are more entertaining but Power backs are the ones that make me shake my head and say "got dayum!"

Jim Brown was a combination of both.

Primetime, you love overrating players including AP.

I have no idea which is more efficient or whatever, maybe Football Outsiders does. But I love watching guys like Jacobs and Barber get into the secondary and just demolish some poor DB. Part of the reason I want Indy to draft Andre Brown

if i have to take 1 to start with, i generally take the speedy/shifty back than the bulldozing power back.

obviously its good to have both but thats my priority.

and you cannot overrate AP.
