There was a Fortt vs Hull thread before... so why not?
When does it become a fair question to start asking whether Zwinak is a better running back than Silas?
Somebody made a post last week about "Zwinak just hurts everybody that tries to tackle him". Thats like one of the greatest compliments you can give a guy. And its not like Silas was popping off long TD runs... he had a great spin move. Zwinak has a great SMASH YOUR FACE IN AND LEAVE TWO ILLINOIS PLAYERS LAYING ON THE GROUND BEGGING FOR MERCY move.
I'm not even saying this is a viable debate yet... but when does it become one?
Stupid post is stupid.
Redd is awesome.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
Both backs bring very different things. Both are great backs. Redd is explosive, shifty, and a helluva running back. Z is a smash mouth back that one person cannot bring down. He constantly keeps his feet moving and always falls forward. Kind of reminds me of a smaller Larry Csonka, Earl Campbell, or Rocky Bliar. I would take both on my team any day!!!
I really like ZZ's running style and he is getting better. I think he fits the offensive scheme very well too. Our version of BJGE
Who is Silas Redd?
WE ARE! And we will always be...
I don't think SR is any more explosive than ZZ. I think they are very similar. If ZZ makes it through the season with no injuries, I'll say he's better.
I'm not saying that Redd isnt.
What I'm asking is what must happen for it to become a viable discussion.
If Zwinak ends up with 1200 yards and 12 TDs is it really that ridiculous?
Besides, I'm pretty close to loaded... cut me some slack.

I think this board is the only place his name gets called... Lol. Sure haven't heard much from the national press.
LOL LOL LOL Hilarious because its true. +1
Not sure how you can say that. BOB rotates a lot of players. Zwinak is a very good college RB.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Check the Stats.

ZZ(Not including today): http://search.espn.go.com/zach-zwinak/
Give me a break, Redd may have better cutting ability but he's not in the same league as ZZ Top when it comes to power. ZZ Top looks a lot like Curtis Enis. Get over your wet dream about Redd.

Redd cut his own throat.... enjoy your 3rd/4th round grade after your (BS Smokescreen) "business move". Stupid choice. Should have been a high/mid 2nd rounder at least....
ZZ - screw Redd.... gimme ZZ ALL DAY EVERY WEEKEND. He's the kinda back Penn State needs, the kind that knows he's part of the team, that the team KNOWS is "part of the team", blue collar, lunchbox, run you over, AND WE'VE BEEN WINNING. Gimme ZZ ALLLLLLLLL DAY OVER REDD.
But we can cut the crap. Redd is a day 2 choice, ZZ = likely undrafted free agent, or late 3rd day pick.
i would rather tackle redd all day! if i want 2 yds zz is my man
Guy who's going to the NFL and will see more money than you could dream of
Who cares about the NFL? I only care about the back that stayed loyal and didn't turn and run.....
Then go root for usc if you love Redd so much.
More rushing touchdowns? Moxie or Redd?
"You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That's the mark of a true professional." JVP
There are plenty of backs that get drafted... Who is he?
You must mean, Mauti, Hodges, Hill, Stank, Morris.... They are all going to the NFL...
