Proof that D-Will is better than Adrian Who?

KC Joyner's Counterintelligence

All Things Held Equal

"All Day" in Minnesota is great, but DeAngelo Williams is better. On plays in which his offensive line did not blow any blocks -- a scenario that levels the field for all backs -- the Panthers' star ran for an NFC-best 7.7 yards per attempt last year. Meanwhile, among players with at least 100 overall rushes, AP's 6.7 yards per attempt ranked sixth.

RB     Attempts (no missed blocks)     Yards     YPA
Chris Johnson     143     1,135     7.9
DeAngelo Williams     173     1,331     7.7
Derrick Ward     118     867     7.3
Steve Slaton     152     1,072     7.1
Maurice Morris     68     460     6.8

According to this table.  LOL

I just can't stand people who think Adrian Fumbles Petersen is the best RB in the league b/c he's not and I'm glad LT called him out today on all the hype.

I won't say he is not but he is not hands down the best like some people try to make him out to be.

You can throw all the stats out there that you want, but I know in my heart of hearts that D-willy is the greatest that ever was, will be, or has been.

I think the main reason that so many people have crowned his ass is because they've been crowning his ass since his days at Oklahoma.  If they didn't say that he's head and shoulders above everybody else, they'd all look bad.

All I know is that he is who we thought he was and no, no we did not let him off the hook.

According to your post, Maurice Morris is one of the best backs in the league.  WTF?

He didn't have at least 100 attempts in that scenario so he'd get wiped off the board.  What this shows us is that if things go right, AP is only the 6th best back at making the play happen.

I agree with another poster, AP is the beneficiary with the media's obsession with Oklahoma Football.  He's one of the better backs, but he's far from unstoppable and D-Will is way more lethal and doesn't fumble 10 times a year like AP.  D-Will doesn't get the respect he deserves because he went to Memphis, breaking the NCAA rushing record FYI.

Money in college football and its association to media outlets is the only reason they drool over AP and try to ignore non-BCS school NFL stars.
