Default Best pair of Running Backs in the NFC East

Which is the best pair of running backs in the NFC East?

I went with the Dallas Cowboys with Jones and Barber. What do you think?...Discuss.


COWBOYS
Julius Jones and Marion Barber

REDSKINS
Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts

EAGLES
Brian Westbrook and Correll Buckhalter

GIANTS
Brandon Jacobs and Reuben Droughns

(I meant to start a poll but some how I messed up on it, sorry.)

a lot of ex donkey backs on that list.

I'd have to say the eagles pair then the cowboys and or Redskins as a pick em.

But really its not a big gap between them all.

this isnt a bad idea for some pre TC fun.

I agree. I am taking Skins.

Philly is close second, but only with a healthy Buckhalter.

wasnt a choice, chief. its the NFC east.

Best back? Westbrook hands down. Cupholder though brings the Eagles Tandem down. Redskins have it. Jones and barber are ..... well good , but not great.

COWBOYS
Julius Jones and Marion Barber (Nice 1, 2 punch. Not great overall, but fairly effective)

REDSKINS
Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts (Portis is just too iffy. If he stays healthy and productive, this is a great combo)

EAGLES
Brian Westbrook and Correll Buckhalter (Westbrook is the money maker here, Buckhalter is not nearly the backup that say, Michael Turner, is)

GIANTS
Brandon Jacobs and Reuben Droughns (Jacobs is best in the red zone but will have to fill big shoes left by Tiki. Drougns should have a better year than last due to better Oline.)

(I meant to start a poll but some how I messed up on it, sorry.)
I give it to Skins by a foot, IF Portis doesn't **** out.
If that does happen, then the Eagles and Cowboys are about tied unless Buckhalter breaks out.
The Giants have to prove they can keep up.
