    Have heard people say that Trent Richardson is the best RB prospect since Adrian Peterson. So who do you think was the better player coming out of college?

    I would go with Richardson.

    Trent never fumbles and has not been hurt nearly as often. He wins.

    no, I don't see T-Rich putting up a 367 total yards game, or a 296 rushing yards game, or hitting 1000 yards rushing after 8 games

    In the interest of fairness

    Trent's career YPC is higher than Peterson's, has 1 more total td, has 500 more career receiving yards, 580 more return yards, going into the pros adrian peterson's 40 is listed as 4.40, Trent's 4.45, adrian bench 20, trent bench 25, trent has lost 1 fumble in his entire career and we know about peterson's fumbles.

    Now does this mean I think Trich is better than Peterson? No I think they are 2 different players with their running styles. You could account some of the above to Peterson being hurt while you could account the other to Richardson for being behind a heisman winner for 2 years. Either way you cut it they are both amazing players and anyone quick to dispel that Trich is on the level of an Adrian Peterson(again not saying he is better) isn't putting much thought into it

    Kenny and David Irons...

    Do you and Kenny have any competition with stats?

    “I just tell him to keep running like that and keep on running to the jungle. I told him I’d buy him a seesaw and monkey bars so he can swing around like a banana tree. He’s doing real good running to his jungle. I told him the end zone is his zoo and if he runs to the end zone he can be with all of his little animal friends. I just told him to treat the football like a banana. You treat the football like a banana and you won’t let anybody at the zoo take your banana peel. He was like, ‘Yeah, that’s true.’ And I was like, ‘Kenny, but it’s not yellow, it’s brown. Just think of it as an old banana and you’ve had out for weeks like you did at the house and it’s turned brown. Run with it and don’t let people strip it.’ He’s been running like a crazy wild child.
    Do you think he looks like a monkey?
    “He looks like somebody hit that kid 10 times. When Halloween comes around on Monday, he’s already got his costume. He’s already himself. I hope when kids come up to the door they don’t get too scared. I’m going to hang him up somewhere on the wall so everyone can see our Halloween decorations.”

    How about Shaun Alexander vs. Adrian Peterson?

    At least that'd probably lead to a real debate.

    No it wouldn't, Shaun wasn't even the best runningback in his draft class. Darren McFadden was a better back in the SEC than Trent Richardson.

    I agree with this, it's hard for many to objectively compare the two because they've seen Peterson in the NFL. When looking at both players though just based on what they did in college it's not a crazy comparison.

    Trent does a lot of things better than Adrian does but Peterson is an absolute freak and has the edge in my opinion.
