LT vrs Turner.

#1
As we all know we have 2 of the greatest backs in the league, so i was thinkin of which one is better. And i kno they each have different styles of running Turner using a powerful but fast game and LT the essence of lightning. So i looked at there stats and it seems that turner has a better average than LT right now

LT
G=6 GS=6 att.=125 Yds= 473 AVG.=3.8

Turner
G=6 GS=0 ATT. 46 Yds=295 Avg. 6.4

Now dont get me wrong im not saying Start turner over LT, but i do think there time should be more split.

ok i worded that a little wrong my bad, what i meant was which one is running better, cause we know LT is the man because he will catch, run, and pass, but when you look @ the stats rushing, turn seems to be doing better, i just thought that was somthing intresting i'd show you guys

You still have this question in your head? Let's hope to god you don't. To all of you that have ever doubted LT or said that he's "lost a step", you know what you can do! THE best RB EVER!:icon_toast:

Tomlinson, NEAL, and Turner are arguably the best trio. but the birds are tearin it up on the ground in ATL.

when i was askin for an argument against statistics, i was expecting an actual answer. im asking you personally.
I'm reminded of an ol "Peanuts" comig strip where Charlie Brown is on the pitcher's mound and Lucy walks in from the outfield and immediately starts to harange him with a butt load of statistics.

Finally, in exasperation, he turns to her and says: "Lucy, tell your statistics to shut up!!"

I think they are usng LT & Turner just right. Turner is there to spell LT when he needs it. In other season LT would stay in there the entire time. This year he's fresh at the end of the game, when he tears the defense a new one.

Turner is great because he's a change of pace. I really doubt Turner would have the yards per rush average that he does without LT. After trying to keep LT under control all game, it's tough for the defenders to deal with a bruising downhill runner.

Turner makes LT better and LT makes Turner better. You shouldn't mess with what works.

I like Turner and I think he can start for a lot of teams.

That being said, teams don't game plan for Michael Turner. They gameplan for LaDainian Tomlinson.

The only question that remains for Michael Turner is can he be successful when he's the RB teams are gameplanning the defense for?

Let's hope we don't find out at least for a few years, though...
