Best already has 2 touch downs. He is a playmaker.

Why would the vikings give the playmaker we need to Detroit?

Best (The "Playmaker" lol) rushed for 20 yards today on 14 attempts, an average of 1.4 yards a carry.
Quite the playmaker.

Don't forget his 3.2 yd/catch. 19 touches for 26 total yards. Best is a playmaker. That is, if he was still in Pop Warner.

hey dickhead, one of those TDs he was stopped at the line and needed instant replay. Replay can be a 50/50 crap shoot. Gerhart would have blown through the tackle and removed the chance of a replay.

I watched the game and saw hesitation, no power and very little explosive speed. He's sure fast on a 40 track but not so fast with real sized NLF players bearing down on him.

He'll be out for the season by the sixth game. He's not only NOT a playmaker, he's way to small for this league.

Today Marshall Faulk said Best is the BEST rookie RB in the NFL. 2 touch down is 2 more then Gerhart.

Honest question, I mean it. Is Gerhart playing this week? I want you guys to see what I know. Tho I'm rooting for the big 3rd down back.

Avant, Peterson is our starter and Gerhart is not. Best was drafted to be a play maker and Gerhart was drafted to compete as a third down back and reserve. Apples are red and oranges are well.......hopefully you get the picture. But I will say he does hit the holes with a force thats pretty impressive for all 5 foot 9 of him.

You don't get it either SNOWta, let me explain. A 3rd down back is a playmaker like Taylor was. He can catch the ball or a drawplay for a big run.

Gerhart can't catch, run, heck he's been injured for the past 3 weeks. Injuries are what happens when a back like GerHURT, puts his head down and tries to run over NFL players.

So his new name I have issued him is GerHURT! LOL

I think their both good it depends what youre needs are.its really to early to tell.Gerhart probably could have played last week but they held him back for precautionary measures.I think it was a good choice for us because we might not have gotten Chris Cook otherwise.We needed a corner more than a running back.Gerhart probably isnt going to break any long runs but I believe between him and Peterson we can really wear down a defense.Time will tell.

Someone said Peterson and Gerhurt can wear down d's and that's all fans repeat. For the last time BP GerHURT pick was a waste. We have a slow, non big play offense now GerHURT makes us slower.

Two question? What can he do for the vikings? If we wanted GerHURT we could have waited til late 4th round. Nobody else wanted him.

Best looks like Jackson.
Suck,suck and suck.
Of course it will take Avant 5 years to see it.
On a more serious note,
all fantasy leagues are reporting the Vikings might be after V.Jackson,
of course Coach Childress is denying the rumor.
My take is 4 receivers on the roster.
Who knows what Rice will return looking like and Berrian ain't looking like no #1.
Figure it out folks.
VJ may return after 4 weeks but that is in question as of right now,
I believe the Vikings are waiting on that clarity.
And when I say fantasy leagues,I mean Yahoo and ESPN.

Did Detroit win? True, Best could be a Barry Sanders type back, but that's a BIG IF. Best is not a ball control back but I wish him the "best".

According to the article I read if we get Jackson its probably the last we see of Sidney Rice in Minnesota.They arent going to have both.

I broke the Vincent Jackson story, a week and a half ago. Forget what Yahoo, Fantasy leagues say. I don't care if he's ruled out 8 games we need the playmaker.

WHERE'S HOUSHMANDZADEH? Leave breaking stories to me. lol

KanFan, we needed a 3rd down back like Taylor, Explosive. If you feel GerHURT can control a ground game in the NFL I'm laughing out loud.

In our offense with Favre as our QB, they tend to pass to a wr first and check down to rb on 3rd downs. More than likely Favre depends on Rice and Harvin or Shiancoe. Taylor was over rated in my opinion. He lost the game against the Steelers last year on a check down pass that went right through his hands for an interception. Peterson has grown enough to be an every down back so the check downs can go to him. Gehart comes in on 3rd and inches and extended drives when AD needs a breather. But lets see now that Stafford is injured again how many touches Best gets. He's only 5'9 behind a horrible line. So let me ask you this question. If it is 3rd and 1 and the starting rb is out for a rest, who would you rather hand the ball off to on a stacked d-line? Best will get crushed and Gerhart will move the pile. The skill set between the two does vary I wont debate that with you. But we are in the year in AD's career where he HAS to transition into a every down back. On check downs and screens Best has speed but we have too much talent at wr and te on 3rd downs so I see more logic in drafting a rb who can throw his weight around and help pass block.

SO I am not saying Best is amazing but thus far I have seen much more from him the TG. TG is borderline bust at this point, looks like crap in preseason and is already hurt. Best looked pretty good yesterday. If you ask me we should have saved our #2 pick (TG) and put Darius Raynaud in the RB lineup and used that pick to get a WR OL or DB.
