    Earnest should probably be in the ring of honor in Cleveland, ... but .... no, wait a minute, some talking head would probably crusade to keep him out because of "The Fumble" http://xfinity.comcast.net/slideshow...orstfumbles/6/ , maybe even one of the same ones who drove him out after the next year to Washington where he would help win SB XXVI and make 2 pro-bowls. Then Cleveland takes him back hoping it rubs off, never realizing that part of why he won was he wasn't there.
    (Actually that pattern continued just ask SB winning Gary Baxter and Paul Kruger)

    Simple:
    1. Ray Rice
    2. Jamal Lewis

    *I am pulling for Rice to rebound this year, but more importantly he has to avoid suspension from tyrant Goodell.

    Well yeah, but it's pick THREE. The real debate is Priest Holmes vs Willis McGahee. Really, the only thing that Holmes has over McGahee is having a SB ring with the Ravens. McGahee had more yards, TDs, even receiving stats.

    1. Lewis
    2. Rice
    Distant 3. Mcgahee

    I dont think priest had a great tenure here. Became a star after he left. Mcgahee was skipped over and not used as much but he was still pretty efficient as a 2nd down back. Believe even as a back up he got 600 yards? Priest I dont remember getting that much. Andd mcgahees first year was better than anything priest did here alone. Pretty plain and simple to me.

    O.K.
    If we are going purely on stats for the 3rd choice, then it's McGahee; however, there are many instances where I'd like to have Holmes or Byner in a game we are playing in, but I understand that McGahee had more production in a Ravens uniform.

    This. I went with Willis because he made one of my favorite Ravens plays of all time, when he bitch slapped that guy from Oakland on his way to a TD.

    Holmes was the first 1000 yard back in Ravens history. Whatever you think of how he got it, that ought to count for something when picking an all-time Ravens team.

    So my top 3 would be Lewis, Rice, and Holmes.

    I liked McGahee when he was here. Like Holmes, he found himself playing second-fiddle to a more talented, younger RB. Both could have done a lot more for the Ravens, but putting them on the field meant not having Lewis or Rice, respectively, getting as many touches. I can't fault either coaching staff for the choice they made, but I don't think poorly of either player because of it.

    Easy for me. Jamal, Ray and Willis is that order. Priest barely registers to me as a Raven, but he was a helluva Chief. I have some fond memories of Willis and he did some good things here. As for Lewis vs Rice, it's easy now, but Ray is mid career. 2, maybe 3, more years like he had pre 2013 and Ray could take the top spot, despite Jamal's 2,000 yard season. Lewis was a beast, but could never catch it like Ray. Of course, based on last year, it's questionable as to whether or not Rice has those big years left in him. Time will tell.

    He didn't have to, different era. Running cats over is what he did best
