Jason Snelling = William Andrews

I read some other comparisons to Jamall Anderson and those are valid, but Sunday watching Snelling hit that crease and keep those feet churning brought back memories of the great William Andrews. I know some on here did not see him play live and have only seen clips, but he was so much fun to watch and he finished every run. The other similarity is that both were blocking fullbacks in college. Just thought I would share this thought. B)

I see where the comparison is warranted, but are you really saying that Snelling is as good, or are you saying he is as valuable? I think Andrews was the best RB in Falcons history.

Excellent post.

Made the same post exactly a year ago and got railed.

Not equal to yet... similar in skill-sets. Andrews wasn't just special he was VERY special.

But I know where you are coming from. I love Jason's game. He can run, he can catch, he can block, he probably even makes a mean omelet. He is an inspirational over-comer type of guy too.

William Andrews was just straight awesome and one of the best Falcons players EVER. I loved that era of the true two-headed running attack from the I.

.Personally I dont think Jamal Anderson can hold

W Andrews jock let alone Snelling..I do hope Snelling will turn out to be a good running back

Ditto.....Jamal is not in the same zipcode as W.Andrews ......I hope Snelling continues on the path he's on now. Everytime he's in there, he produces....

At this point in his young career, I think the only valid equation is Jason Snelling = Jason Snelling.

He's answered the call whenever he's gotten in the lineup and he's got great potential, but let's not get too caught up in comparisons to any of the great RB's until Jason has a few more highly productive years under his belt.

Love where you're coming from, I just think it's too early.

i actually got pissed off when I saw the title of the thread..Please don't use the = sign

when it comes to snelling and W Andrews...Personally I dont think Jamal Anderson can hold

W Andrews jock let alone Snelling..I do hope Snelling will turn out to be a good running back

Fair enough, I got carried away a little with the "=".. :lol: But,.. if he keeps getting the carries he might be the 2.0 version of William Andrews. I think the kid is special.

As a guy who saw William Andrews de-cleat tacklers on the way to the end zone, I would say sllllllloooooowwwww down with comparing Snelling to him. At least for the time being.

Andrews is the best running back to ever don the uniform with Gerald Riggs second. I love Jamal Anderson and all but he couldn't get William Andrews a cup of coffee. No need to go any further because all I'll do is get steamed over Dan Henning deciding to do live tackling drills the week before the '84 season starts....

He was my all time favorite Falcon, bar none. Imagine a running back who averaged +4 yards per carry that seemed to pick up at least 4 yards every single time he touched the ball. He was that consistent.
