Poll: Is Marshawn Lynch Better Than Fred Jackson?

NFL writers compile lists or rankings to create debate. Pat Kirwan of NFL.com has given us an interesting one this fine Tuesday morning, as he has listed Marshawn Lynch ahead of Fred Jackson in his ranking of the NFL's best running backs.

Obviously, Lynch and Jackson are former Buffalo Bills teammates. In 2010, Lynch - the former first-round draft pick - was traded by the Bills to Seattle in favor of Jackson, the former undrafted free agent and indoor league star out of Division III Coe College. Even while the two were here and sharing the backfield, Jackson kept pace with Lynch despite a smaller workload; in 2008 and 2009, Jackson ran for 1,633 yards and scored seven touchdowns, while Lynch ran for 1,486 and scored 11 touchdowns. While Lynch was still with the team, Jackson became the first player in NFL history to record 1,000 yards rushing and on kick returns in the same season.

Kirwan, however, gives the edge to Lynch because of this ridiculously epic run. Toss on your hats of objectivity, Bills fans - is Lynch really better than Jackson?
