AFC North All-Division: Running Back Fan Poll


The AFC North Division FanSided editors are coming up with an All-Division team that will go up against other All-Division teams in the NFL.  The editors over at Ebony Bird, Stripe Hype, and Dawg Pound Daily, and myself have nearly compiled the list on the offensive side of the ball.

However, we are at an impasse for the running back position.  That’s where you our readers come into play.  We need fans to be the difference maker on this one.  Between the four sites, there are three running backs listed, and we need a majority to move on.  So it’s up to you.  This poll only lasts this afternoon, so be quick to make a decision.

Once we have the running back selected, all four sites will post the AFC North All-Division Offense.  Over the next day or so, we will then compile the defensive side of the ball, and will probably need some help from all of you once again.  Stay tuned, but for now choose one of the three running backs listed.

Who Should Be The Running Back On The AFC North All-Division Team?

  • Gio Bernard (64%, 14 Votes)
  • Ray Rice (23%, 5 Votes)
  • BenJarvus Green Ellis (13%, 3 Votes)

Total Voters: 22

      Nice try Kimmy.

    • Anthony Chiado

      Yeah, why isn’t he on there? He would be my pick by far.

      • Craig

        Because I didn’t pick him and neither did the other three divisional editors.

        • Kimmy

          Sounds like a write-in campaign is in order lol

          Craig, for me, you and the writer’s of those sites you listed just lost all credibility by having Benjarvus Green-Ellis on there without Bell’s name not even being mentioned. Are you and those writers aware that the Cincinnati Bengals had an amazing oline last year for Benard and even the year before for Green-Ellis, although at least Green-Ellis can handle blitz pickup. Ray Rice has all the same abilities as Bell but has been doing it longer. Bell had a better year last year but both of their lines sucked last year in run support. Bell and Rice are the only all-around backs in the AFC North, Green-Ellis can block but can’t catch and Gio can catch but his size limits his blocking, although Rice is small he knows how to obtain leverage over blitzing defenders.

          I’ll check in from time to time to see if you write anything worth reading but I most likely will never read an article from you again because you not only didn’t include a better all around back than two of them listed, although Bernard does include consideration, but you didn’t even pick him. The only person who deserves to be above him is Ray Rice, and not because of last year but because of his overall body of work. Try again to whichever one of you writers who chose Benjarvus but kept quiet on Bell. Shows you don’t know what you’re talking about.

            Hey Jordin,
            As anyone is, you are entitled to your opinion. Sorry you feel something like this takes away credibility. No need to check in from time to time. Wouldn’t want to waste your time if that’s how you feel. Best of luck.

          • Craig

            And quite honestly, now that he’s part of this division, I’d put Blount ahead of Bell for the moment. But since Blount just entered, he wasn’t fair game. Bells good, but unproven. One more year like last year or better, then he becomes a contender for a spot like this.
