5 seasons doesn't make one an all tiem great. That was my point. Even guys who had short careers in the "great" conversation still span like 8 years...

Naw, 5 years doesn't make him great. I didn't say it did. I said that at this point in his career he is comparable to the all-time greats at this point in their career, but he needs to have a great year this year to stay in that conversation.

You don't have to wait til a career is over and look back to see is someone elite. You can look at where someone is and see are they on track with where players we consider elite were at that point in their career. And he is, to this point. That isn't saying he is an all-time great ... that's saying he is pacing himself to be included in that conversation. Which he undoubtedly has done at this point ... if he comes out and puts up a 800 yd and 4 TD year, then he exits that conversation. He needs a 1250-1350 rushing year to keep himself in that elite conversation. Otherwise he's going to end up to be a good RB that had an amazing first 3 years.
