    No, he's better than Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, and whoever else you have in mind.

    You're simply going off his career best game today. Stop overreacting.

    I dont know if he's THE best but he is pretty darn beastly. Certainly one of the top backs in the league.

    He's good but not even close to the best in the league. His end zone celebrations are the worst in the league, btw.

    He's not even the best RB this week.

    It's certainly convenient to post this after he just had the game of his career. He is not better than Chris Johnson or Adrian Peterson however, and Arian Foster belongs in this conversation only after he has another year like the one he had this year. I'd say the 4 of them though are definitely a cut above the rest of the league based on what they've done this season.

    So much depends on where you're at. Steven Jackson would kill it in Indianapolis. He might be the best back in the league for all we know.

    Drunk?

    He had a great game, but that doesn't make him the best RB in the league.

    His blocking and receiving skills is what separates him from the others.

    Playing behind a bad offensive line and still playing at a great level solidifies it.

    I would still take Adrian Peterson over any back in the league.

    Nope.

    Been a Jags fan for a while now.

    Jones-Drew is the real deal.

    Does it all.

    Doesn't mean he is the best RB... That's like saying AB is the best PG after getting a 20-20 game.

    75 Games - 1103 RUSHES - 5101 YARDS RUSHING, 2058 YARD RECEIVING - 60 TOTAL TDS - 4.6 AVG

    He has done it his entire career. Not just this season. Again, if you actually watch his games, you would realize he is the truth.

    Only age 25.
