Where do I start with the injustices?

PT over Turner a joke...maybe even Williams over him!

Colston is not ovver White!

To not put Abe in there is ludicrous...

Babs has been lights out...arguably could be first on the list...

There are some minor discrepencies but I won't nitpick!

Notice I said 2009 season. Now if I said BETTER PLAYER I would have put Turner over PT etc etc.

Reading is your friend.

Yeah I noticed that but where do you come off with that cockamamy idea?

Best players of 2009:

Turner

720 yards 4.6 yard avg 10 TDs

PT

455 yards 5.5 yard avg 5 TDs

get real...

depends on what you are looking for. Turner's yards and average have been greatly inflated over the last 2 weeks while PT has been consistent the entire year. PT doesnt get as many touches, but his average is unreal. I dunno whose performance I would rate better over the entire season...you could make a case for both

I like PT a whole lot, but I'd put Turner over him. I could see if if Turner didn't have the last two games that he had, but he did have the last two games that he had. I'd still give D-Will the edge over him just because he's been doing it all year and his QB help is Jake Turnoverhomme.

But he also had those 6 games before, that's why he's at #3. Just because he's had 2 straight great games doesn't mean you can forget about his horrible start.

I wouldn't say he had a horrible start. Not his best effort for sure, but he managed a pair of good games against San Fran and the Panthers and he does have ten rushing TD's on the year. That's nothing to sneeze at.

I'd put Lofton over any other player in the NFC South at MLB the guy is leading the league in tackles with 84 this year. I'd agree with the rest of the list, however I think Turner could bump all the way up to #1 if he continues to score and get 100+ yards a game for the rest of the season. (which is a possibility given the Falcons schedule)

I think your off on this Dago. Firstly, Turner carries the load, PY is doing it by committee, and isn't that the same argument you guys gave us for Norwood? High yards per avg but didn't carry the load and doesn't have much yardage? Turner IMO wins this hands down, I'm not sure you put Williams over him either? Turner has 48 yards less but three more TDs? Now I know that's why nola had Williams first last season because he had 1 more TD than Turner. Sounds like there is some hypocritical argument going on here...one year its this way and the next year its that way? I expect more out of you, nola I understand!

alright...you sold me. until and unless PT shoulders more of a load it wouldnt be fair to rate him with Turner

SHH the holy grail of rushers is yards per carry.

The only games Turner has been "horrible" in were the Dallas and chicago games.

He had some games that were not exactly his best but he still ran hard those games and still converted a lot of first downs.... he just did not have the big 30+ yarders

Its pretty amazing to think dude has score 27 tds in 24 games as a falcon.

OK the guy is on his second year. FIRST YEAR as a 3 down LB. He isnt that good in coverage. You want to say he is better than Vilma, Fine. HE IS NOT BETTER THAN BEASON

I like lofton alot............ he is going to me one of the best linebackers in the game.....

But he is not better then Beason.

Vilma........ ehh he has great moments then the has some wtf moments, he is a better overall athlete then Lofton.

But Beason right now is hands down the best middle linebacker in the Division.
