Don't Forget About B-West

All week we have been and will be hearing about how great Adrian Peterson is. Yea the kid deserves the spotlight, but let's not forget about the man lining up in the Eagles' backfield.

When healthy (and it appears that he is) no one is a better all around back than Westbrook. Don't believe me, well check out these stats...

Games with at least one receiving TD and one rushing TD
- Marshall Faulk 15
- Brian Westbrook 12
- Ahman Green 9
- Chuck Foreman 9
- Neal Anderson 9

Yards per touch among RBs since 2003
- Brian Westbrook 1,578 5.7
- Michael Pittman 905 5.5
- Tiki Barber 1,517 5.5
- Frank Gore 1,099 5.3
- L. Tomlinson 2,304 5.1

Leading receivers among RBs since 2003
- B. Westbrook 390-3,511
- L. Tomlinson 372-2,945
- Kevin Faulk 250-2,165

The key to the Eagles playoff run is #36. Hopefully Reid realizes this too...

Give AP 4 more years and then compare him to BWest.
