who would you rather have ... green ellis or tolbert and why?

I think I'd be more satisfied with tolbert because of his explosiveness....ellis isnt the take it to the house kinda rb...very good at his assignments thought whether that be blocking or whatever

I doubt there is much truth to us getting Ellis, but I would go with him. He can get tough yards and doesn't fumble the ball. Safe player to trust

Good debate, but I would be happy with either one. I guess that from the little that I know, I have more questions than impressions about the both of them. How are they picking up blitzes? How are they pass blocking? How effective are they in draw plays? How are they setting up and catching screens? How are they releasing from the line of scrimage and running to the underneath routes, or to the flats?

It is a bit unfair, because I have only really seen Green-Ellis play from our battles with the Pats, but I have not seen much of Tolbert. They are both good downhill runners, but how are they with all other elements of their position play?

Tolbert would compliment Bradshaw perfectly! He's a better, younger Brandon Jacobs. And he wants to be a Giant

I love this debate. I have seen both backs and I see BGE as not as "sexy" pick. Very dependable, doesn't fumble, agile and a decent runner.

Tolbert is much much Stronger Jacobs like. He is also more athletic and faster then BGE. In a 2 back system Tolbert is more of a hit and run guy but also more expensive.

BGE is cheaper and low key and just does his job which is the type of guy Coughlin likes.

Ellis. I like his style of play. Very secure. You know what you're getting out of him.
