As good as JC is he'll never be as great as Priest

Priest rushing yards per game nearly equals JCs TOTAL yards per game. If you add in Priests receiving he destroys JC in total yards per game. TDs sorry Priest.

I'll take Priest over JC any day. He's just more complete as a back then JC

Why Not?

Edge to Holmes in patience, size, and ball security.

Edge to Jamaal in vision, speed and quickness.

Blocking and pass-catching/utility are a wash or close enough to it.

Priest produced more with the far superior supporting cast while Jamaal's clearly the more talented back. Both are phenomenal at their peak.

Priest had 5 yards before he even got touched. What made him special was his vision and patience that allowed him to set up blocks. His speed was probably underrated. Jamaal's size and speed allow him to avoid defensive linemen allowing him to get to the second level. Before his first ACL tear his break away speed allowed made him impossible to catch. Give him a small crease and he's gone.I think Jamaal has faired better behind his shitty offensive lines than Priest would have, and vice versa

This times 1,000%. Holmes was a good RB who benefited from an offense perfectly tailored to his skills and an OL that is arguably the best ever assembled. Any above average RB would have put up similar numbers to Holmes, and a great RB would have re-written the record books for yards from scrimmage in a way that wouldn't be touched for a long time. I could see a RB of JC's caliber racking up nearly 3,000 yards from scrimmage.

You'd hear reports about how he wasn't practicing and sitting around icing what was left of his knees, then on Sunday you'd see his geriatric ass hobble out to the huddle, but once the ball snapped he looked like a gigantic magnet and the opposing rushers would just stick and he'd stand their asses up like lady liberty all day long.

I'd take Jamaal but Priest was pretty damn good himself. Yes he had a hell of an oline but no one knew who to use blockers the way Priest did. So patient and shifty... He was also a really good receiving RB. Two 70+ rec seasons to go along with a 60+ rec season all three of them he got over 600+ yds receiving. I think Jamaal has only done that once.

Priest was great for us. It's a shame injuries shortened his career. So while I would take Jamaal over him I don't think the gap is that big.

Lets not act like Priest was just an average RB running behind a great oline. He was a hell of an RB.

Priest did have a fumble but overall he had a great game. If it wasn't for him the game is probably a blowout. He had 24 car, 176 yds, 1 TD and 5 rec, for 32 yds... The main reason we lost that game was because of our crap defense not because of the fumble.

Jamaal's playoff injuries are concerning. Don't know what's up with that.. Especially that Colts playoff game, how he got a concussion on that play I'll never know. Looked like a freak-injury type deal. He's still a hell of a RB. Hopefully the next time we make the playoffs he will be healthy and ready to go because dude is special.

If there was one thing, besides durability, that would have put Priest in the pantheon of the all-time greats, it would have been nice if he had something approaching Marshall Faulk's spin move. Faulk's spin move was so compact and fast, I don't know if we've seen anything like it. Priest could have really made hay employing such a move against the second wave of defenders after that mammoth O-line cleared out the first wave. It would have been Bo Jackson Tecmo week in week out.

If my research is correct Charles has only played 1 season with a QB who's QBR was in the top 10.

Despite that he's top 5 in YPC in NFL HISTORY.

Honestly, we need to stop using wins or playoff wins to define a single player. The pats have had brady, but have also been one of if not the best player development and personal departments in football over that time. Paired with a top 2 or 3 head coach in history of the league, you get that.

It also helped that they've had an all time great qb. So yeah, if we can find one of those laying around, let's do that.

Teams like the Patriots, Giants, Steelers who have won multiple Super Bowl's recently don't invest heavily in RB's and don't make a franchise RB the focal point of their offense the way the Chiefs have.

Look at recent Super Bowl winners and only Seattle with Marshawn Lynch had a franchise-type RB that was the focal point of their offense.

There is a lot of truth in this. Between cycling through non-star players (outside of a star QB) who know that they either perform or they're gone (and being creative with the rules too), the Pats have shown one way to succeed.

The point about patience is one I thought about mentioning but decided not to. Jamaal hasn't been afforded the opportunity to showcase any patience with these crap OLs. But since Priest wasn't particularly big, strong or fast and still managed to produce at an elite level for 3-4 years I figured I'd just be generous and give him the edge there.

Priest had better hands for sure but I'd label them even due to Jamaal's big-play ability and utility. You can line Jamaal up at WR if you wanted to and he could make a hell of a living- I'm not sure you could do the same for Priest on a consistent basis.

It is the likes of Willie Parker, Brandon Jacobs, Antowain Smith, Ahmad Bradshaw, Michael Pittman, and Brandon Jackson.

So how, in any way, does that contradict what you said?

You said the Steelers don't heavily invest in running backs "like the Chiefs".

Well, they "heavily invested" in Bettis, spent a 1st on Mendenhall and 2nd on Bell.

Since 1997, the Chiefs have spent a first round pick on one running back (Larry Johnson in 2003) and currently have a 3rd rounder wrapped up in Charles and Davis (which was a Comp pick at the end of the round).

That's not "heavily invested".
