  • Who does this remind you of

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvMyJWJUE5g


    The body type, the balance, the acceleration, the incredibly quick feet, even just the running style itself.

    in this case he looks exactly like Wilson!

    Wilson seems to lean, cut and run the same as Faulk did in that vid!

      Yeah, him and David Wilson are the same type of RB. Same body type too. Maybe slightly bigger than Wilson.

        I'd say David Wilson in 2-3 years.

          I mean clearly Wilson has a ton he can improve, Faulk was masterful at reading off his blockers and setting them up, as well as being one of the best blocking and receiving backs of all time (if not the best).

          But they are so similar physically, its stunning.

            id say that approaching the LOS, and picking a hole and getting thru it, Aryan Foster looks very similar. In the open field, it always looked like Faulk was moving in slow motion compared to the action around him. like he was controlled in an uncontrolled, chaotic situation. That whole jump step complete stop shimmy then take off again, I mean that kinda move is 1 a generation imo.

            I dunno bout wilson and faulk tho. that one run vs NE in the snow where he broke like 4 tackles by leaning forward off the impact, that run reminded me of wilson a lot. ive always felt like once in the 2nd level and beyond, Wilson reminds me a ton of Sayers (from the highlights, too young to have seen him play live).

                I'm so psyched about Wilson! This guy is gonna be the real deal. Im giddy for what he can do for this team.

                  something I notice is that at the beginning of the season he just ran straight forward and didn't really have any patience but later on you could see he was more patient in his run, can't wait to see what he does next season. He needs to be the starter not just a change of pace RB

                    I can see similarities speed wise and with one cut ability but Wilson has a lower center of gravity when he runs. Overall though, I can only hope Wilson becomes the complete back and receiver Marshall was. Marshall was good at everything.

                      There's no RB that I've seen that reminds me of Sayers. Sayers was like an artist on the football field. Poetry in motion. He really was beautiful to watch the way he would run, stop and cut on a dime. He wasn't the greatest RB ever, but he had a style of his own.

                        One thing I'd like to know is how the NFL network only had him as #70 on their top 100.The guy owns the single season record for yards from scrimmage and was the best dual threat RB of all time, it might not even be close. If I was making an all time roster (of guy's I've seen), Marshall faulk woud be one of my 3 backs, the 99' version specifically. The other two would be:
                        2003 Jamal lewis- Nobody had a better combo of size and speed. the guy was bulit like a roided up GI Joe and looked menacing in those black raven uni's.
                        2012 Adrian Peterson- Never saw Jim Brown play, but I'm pretty sure this guy is as close as it gets...One of the All time greats

                        And Yes I've seen Barry, Emmitt and TD...For my team I like the other 3 guys better

                          That's right. Sayers could be running at top speed and literally stop on a dime. And then take off again at full speed. I've never seen anyone else with that ability.

                            Good list. Barry was better than Emmitt, hands down.

                              The reason I picked the other 3 of these two Hall a famers is:
                              Emmitt- more a product of consistency and a dominating Oline then spectacular personal physical skills
                              Barry- Very spectacular phsyically but would be shutdown/a non factor for it seemed 8/10 runs a lot of the time
