    What matters more?

    Rushing yards , TD's, or a combo of both.

    People talk about how Peterson is having possibly the best season of any RB. But I think people are forgetting about other great seasons such as LT and Shaun Alexanders TD record setting seasons both with over 1800 yards.

    So what matters more?

    Ap has more rushing yards over the last month than ponder does throwing.

    Yards is the best factor to equal success.

    Not to take anything away from AP, he's shown why he is the best RB in the league, but points wins games, yards do not.

    Yards get first downs, yards burn clock, yards get FGs, yards get TDs, yards rests your defense, and yards wear out the opposing defense.

    Because some times guys get chances near the end zone to get those TDs, in the NFL now adays you even have "Goal line" backs.

    YPC and total yards are more important than rushing TDs.

    What seems better to you (from a RB perspective); a 1 yard TD run following an otherwise passing-exclusive drive, or an 80 yard run followed by a 1 yard TD pass?

    Generally speaking, I'll take the back who puts up the yards to get the team into scoring position in the first place over a goalline back who reaps the benefit of the rest of the team getting him into reachable scoring position. Unless, we're talking a LT-type back who often got himself into scoring position in the first place.

    And YPC can be a decent measuring tool, as long as you're talking comparable sample sizes.

    I say both. It's a big part of the reason that I think Brady should win MVP over AP, but I think he would need at least 22ish total TDs to deserve MVP. Yes, yards are important, but TDs put points on the board. When we're talking about an MVP running back I'm thinking LT/Alexander quality seasons, not Chris Johnson 2009 seasons (before anyone jumps the gun, I'm not saying AP = CJ2K, I think AP is the best HB in football).

    I also don't agree with the "yards put points on the board" argument. Literally, it is true that you need yards (distance) to get in the endzone, but if you can't get TDs to the endzone what difference does it make. Yes, I'm sure Ponder has some goal-line TD passes, but it's not like the Vikings are a pass-first team. AP gets plenty of opportunities in the red-zone, but only has 11 TDs.

    Given the following HBs: A.) 1800 yards 10 TDs, b.) 800 yards 20 TDs, c.) 1300 yards 15 TDs; I'd take HB C because he appears to have a complete resume, whereas HB A can't get in the endzone and HB B appears to be a goal-line back.

    Yards, but mainly a combo. AP isn't calling the shots on offense, so he doesn't have as many opportunities to get that TD number up.
