Default Is Chris Johnson better then Adrian Peterson?

CJ- 199 carries, 1242 yrds, 6.2ypc, 9 total TD's, 30 rec for 262 yrds, 1 fumble
AP- 205 carries, 999 yrds, 4.9 ypc, 11 total TD's, 25 rec 215 yrds, 4 fumbles

Has Chris Johnson replaced Adrian Peterson for the best RB in the league? His stats definitely say so and is better in almost every statistical category. He also didn't have a top passing game like AP to keep defenses honest and they weren't in a position to run the ball as much due to the Titans record.

Yes and no. I think chris's style will allow him to last longer in the league but then one has to take in to account he won't always be the fastest guy.

AP can pound through the hole but who knows how long that will last

How's their blocking? Seriously, I haven't focused on either enough to really know. AP certainly seems improved in the receiving game. Maybe not actually improved, just more of a chance to show it.

No. People act like Peterson has regressed. All he's done is improve his receiving and blocking. The reason he's not having huge monster games is because they don't need him to and if you don't need him to why pound him 25-30 times a game? Pro long his career by keeping him fresh when you have a HOF Pro Bowl QB next to him to rely on.

Default Re: Is Chris Johnson better then Adrian Peterson?

not at all...

CJ's ypc is a result of him not having to run short yardage plays...Lendale White has that duty...Peterson would average 100 ypc if he didn't have to run short yardage...

also, 5 years from now I bet AD is still a 1500 yard RB...and I bet CJ will be viewed as a one hit wonder...


give me AD...

Default Re: Is Chris Johnson better then Adrian Peterson?

when you break it down

who is more elusive? Chris Johnson

who is the better pass catcher? Chris Johnson

who is more of a big play threat? Chris Johnson

who is the better pure runner( YPC)? Chris Johnson

who has more power? Adrian Peterson

who has more speed? Chris Johnson

I think the only thing anyone can give to AP is the power, outside of that it is all Chris Johnson all the time.

AD is a better pure runner...like I said, if CJ had to run short yarage instead of White his ypc would be like 4.5...

if AD never had to run short yardage like CJ, his ypc would be like 8.0

I also expect AD to have a very long career in the NFL...not sure CJ will remain "hot" that long...

Peterson also ran a 4.37...

How do you figure? Tell the future much?

And Johnson's 40 was faster

I could be wrong, he could have a long career as an elite...he could go on to be the greatest ever...but he doesn't seem that durable to me, where Peterson has been trucking over people all through college, he could go as long as Emmitt Smith...


and yeah, CJ had the fastest 40 time ever (electric) but I was just pointing out that Peterson's time was amazingly fast and thier speed isn't that far off...

Peterson's the one who's got the durability concerns, not Johnson, just so it's clear

To the guy who keeps saying "Chris Johnson doesn't have to run short yardage" ... wtf does that mean? Lendale White hasn't got much carries this year. Chris Johnson is doing the bulk of the work. He has ran in between the tackles and outside. If he was only running outside defenses would know that and get the edge.

Anyway, IMO AP is the better running back. Both are VERY good though.

it means that on 3rd and short, when they need someone to pound it in the hole for 2 yards, CJ is on the bench...White does that short yardage work...

Peterson has short yardage duties, that brings his average way down...
