    I'm still getting used to the new polling system. I didn't like the last poll although I thought it might work itself out if enough people voted as the number one.

    Still don't see how to rank them but I've added multiple choices. Unfortunately you cannot preview the polling questions/format before posting the thread.

    As before discuss as you like and rank them in your post if you wish. You can also add in those you like as I did not post the unknowns and new drafees or backups with little impact so far.

    I think Randle will get some snaps this year and I expect Helu to also for Wash.

    I'm curious to see who wins between Shady and Morris. Is there a way to make it a public poll?

    Shocked by the Morris votes. I think its McCoy by a mile.

    I like McCoy a LOT, however, I love no nonsense RBs like Morris who end up shocking you at the end of the year when you realize they ran for 1500+ yards at nearly 5 yards a pop.

    I'll take steady over explosive/flashy in this case, although please understand I think McCoy is an excellent RB.

    I love Morris, but went with McCoy. He is a threat anywhere, and any down, on the field. Morris isn't going to dictate defensive alignment in a 3rd and 7 situation, McCoy very likely could.

    While that is absolutely true, handing the ball to Morris last year on first and second down meant you weren't looking at many 3rd and 7 situations.

    Tough call both are good for very different reasons.

    It's supposed to be a public poll. Are you having problems with it?

    Yeah, I hear you. I too am a bigger fan of the no nonsense back - like Emmitt. I guess I give more credit to Shannohan's system than Morris, but of course could be totally wrong.

    While Morris had a great rookie year I'd have to see him repeat it before I'd even think of ranking him over Shady

    Much as I hate to give any props to those Iggles, I'd have to go with McCoy. I think Murray is better than his numbers indicate but until he can play at least most of a season he can't be near the top of the list. Not hugely impressed by either Giants guy. I think Morris benefited from the attention RG3 demands from defenses, so I'd need to see another year.

    1. LeSean - Like others have mentioned he will play 3rd down and catch more passes out of the backfield. More of a threat besides just running.
    2. Morris - Heavy, hard hitting runner who will always get you 4+ yards on a carry. Read option makes him very dangerous.
    3. Wilson - Very shifty/fast player. I think he will have a monster year this year with the Giants.
    4. Murray - I have him 4th because he is always injured and Dallas' run blocking line is atrocious. If he can stay healthy this year and Dallas shows they have potential at running the ball this year, he could have a great year.

    I actually had Wilson first and I'm afraid we'll be right. LeSean is great but I don't know whether he'll show up every week. Murray too although I see McCoy and Murray as different types of RB. Morris I need to see repeat last year but I like the player. I think Helu may show up this year. Looks like a steady back to me but could be better than that. I think someone on the Boys will surprise a little. Welcome.

    I like Wilson. In fact I think he could be scary. Like McCoy a lot. We agree on Morris although I expect him to be at least a solid guy.
