Let's compare players in this draft... (1 Viewer)

Raider Nation

Devil's Advocate
Reggie Bush = Marshall Faulk (The most obvious comparison on the board)

Mario Williams = Julius Peppers

Vernon Davis = Shannon Sharpe

LenDale White = A better T.J. Duckett

D’Brickashaw Ferguson = A better Lomas Brown

DeAngelo Williams reminds me of somebody -- can't put my finger on WHO...

Anyone got a problem with any of these? Feel free to add your own.

Oh yeah...... some FRESH Raider fan smack! :thumbup: The last two links are somewhat relevant to your argument.

The group above it are not "threads," and most of them are broken links.

I say again:
Or you could do a search and find at least two threads where this is already discussed adnauseum.
Players have been discussed in other threads (like Leinart = Manning, VY = Vick, etc.), but those two are directly on point.

DeAngelo makes me think of Tiki....not as good though.

Instead of pointing me to the threads in question, you basically HONDA'd me like I'm some n00b. Instead of being smug with your initial reply, you could have realized that this is a difficult topic to find the proper search keywords. I entered "compare" into the search box, when "comparison" would have done the job, so I missed jeter23's thread.Whatever. Let's move on.

Shoot me.
:shrug: at least I replied.
 
Radier nation you were totally :own3d: Move on before you embarrass yourself anymore.....

DeAngelo reminds me more of Emmitt than Tiki.
 
Reggie Bush = Bryan Westbrook

MAtt Leinart = Drew Bledsoe
I said this and everyone attacked me. I think you are right on the money. Lienart is a left handed Drew Bledsoe. He is a statue just like Bledsoe. I think people forget that Bledsoe could move around a little in college too but people are bigger and faster in the NFL and Lienart will look just like Bledsoe. Not that it is a bad thing to look like Bledsoe. I think the best comparisons are:

Vince Young= Randall Cunningham

Lendale White= Ron Dayne

Vernon Davis= Shannon Sharpe

Reggie Bush= a better version of Westbrook

No, you guys were just being asses for nothing.
Ok, I was an ###. I have no problem with that.Raider Fan does raise a valid point though, that most people don't seem to know.

If you want to compare, or discuss comparisons, search for compar*

Frankly, I dislike comparisons to begin with, but that's besides the point. They have their place, but are often overused.

Everyone knows about the search button but wtf uses it every time he wants to make a topic.

True, but I don't know if he will be Faulk. I know Bush is the greatest thing since sliced bread and all but I am not ready to annoint him Faulk until he can make it through a few seasons without getting hurt. That is my major concern. The guy has never been a full time back and hasn't made it through an NFL season just yet.

He did average 22 touches a game at USC last year (counting carries, catches and returns). That's a pretty decent workload. If he gets 22 tocuhes a game in the NFL, he's going to put up some terrific numbers. You're talking 350 touches during a 16 game season.

Hmmmmm. I guess we will see. The board hype for this guy is getting out of hand though. Maybe he will be the next Marshall Faulk.

:confused: Leinert is not only more mobile than even a young Bledsoe (true not by a lot) but Bledsoe has a very strong arm where Leinert does not. Don't get this comparison. White to Dayne is a good call. That isn't saying anything about what White will or won't do in the pros, only a similar comparison as they come into the draft (the orig point of the thread I think, ie before the cat fight broke out) - in fact not sure White is even Dayne in that regard. Dayne was better thought of and was faster (you heard me) - although I think White is considered more versatile.

Another would be Drew, who I consider more of a Westbrook than Bush. I'm not his biggest fan, but Bush to Westbrook isn't valid; Bush has more size, moves etc.

Bush can do more than Faulk. I think the better comparison is Bush = Sayers (though not as good as either of them).
