Why is it that Mcgahee beats out Jamal for a pro bowl spot? Jamal had 100 more rushing yards, a better rushing average per carry, more than 3 yards more per catch average, and more touchdowns. Not to mention led his team to a 10-6 mark and almost made the playoffs. All mcgahee has done is run 4 yards and then get up and start beating his chest

Dan and your point is? Jamal had a better line than we did for that additional 100 yards, McGahee create something out of nothing so is McGahee a better runner hell yeah by far. Imagine if Jamal was still here how many yards would he be getting, enough said.

Congrats McGahee...

I believe that Mcgahee sat out the last two games. Had he not been hurt he would have easily outgained Jamal. Jamal had a good year, there is no doubt about that. But the Ravens O-line was young and hurt for most of the season. Plus in the two games against Cleveland Willis was the top rusher in both games!

My point is that the runner that has more yards, a better average per carry, more touchdowns, more receiving yards, and more total receiving yards, plus a team that almost makes the playoffs deserves to go to the pro bowl

And I like how you use the o-line as an excuse. When jamal was here it was HIS fault when he didn't have the yards per carry , but now since jamal is gone and willis is here, its not willis' fault it's the lines fault. I don't understand why everyone is on willis' ass, he hasn't done anything. Yeah he has some nice runs once in awhile, but how many times does he get stuffed? Or dance around in the backfield and lose yards instead of just trying to gain a yard? compare his first few seasons and jamal's first few seasons, and tell me who has been more productive
