Many discussions/arguments have already been made that it's unfair to compare one player to another based on intangibles like the OL they play behind. Try to disregard the intangibles when voting.

I forgot to include Ronnie Brown, so feel free to vote for him or anyone else I left out.

There ya go N8, I added Ronnie. I'm not sure what you mean by who'll be the best. Who'll be the best 5 years from now, or who will have the best career in the next five years, thus being the best RB in the NFL. For now, I would say LT, even though I he didn't put up the best numbers for RBs last year. In 2010 or 2011, I would say KJ (I'm a homer).

That is what I'm asking. Right now, few would argue that it's LT, but who will it be in 5 years?

I dont think any running back s right now will be as great as Barry Sanders. A lot of the greats right now may be gone or injured or retired by the time 5 years rolls around.

Kevin Jones, Cedric Beson, and Ronnie Brown have the most potential IMHO to be the best five years down the road

based on KJ's stats from last season and a few phenominal runs I would say him

of course thats credits vs. credentials... Benson or Brown .. Brown most likely.. could have great careers.

Just ask me in 5 years, I ll know by then

for now this die hard lions fan is sticking with KJ

The intangible of a better offensive line may make Julius Jones a better RB statistically in 5 years. I believe similiar to Ricky, LT and Edge being considered the best the last couple years I believe there is gonna be group comprising KJ, JJ and possibly one of the Miami runners( since right now we are not sure who the starter is gonna be for the next 5 years) Ricky if he returns will take carries away from Brown but I still think he figures to be up there.

LT is absolutely the best right now, but in 5 years he will pass the reigns to KJ.
