Silly people.

Oh, and he was a jerk. Not so much after he left the Chiefs. But he definitely had ego problems.


I remember the entire world thought this way and that was my first season playing fantasy and I KNEW he would come up short.

He was overrated, annoying and not that smart. And I hate saying that considering he's a PSU alum.

But his intelligence could be surmised best with this quote...

Tweet 1: “My father got more credentials than most of these pro coaches.”

Tweet 2: “My father played for the coach from "remember the titans”. Our coach played golf. My father played for the redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn.”

I respect Anderson more than I do Johnson. I would put Johnson and Shaun Alexander kind of in the same category. Forgettable RBs who played in rather ideal conditions.

I'll remember that he scored a bunch of TDs in a 2 year span...

He actually was a great fantasy back in 2006 - not the top overall player, but not a bust the way Shaun Alexander was. But yeah, the whole "look at what he did in 9 starts" thing, as if he didn't play in the other 7 games and didn't still have over 330 carries, was stupid.

No. He lost a HOF worthy LT and proved to be just average.

He was average after injuries and wear brought him down. In his prime? I don't care who was blocking for him, he was one of the best running backs in the league.

And unlike Kansas City, there was actually a major dropoff whenever Seattle gave the ball to someone else. Shaun Alexander is seriously one of the most underrated greats of this past generation.

Personally I'll remember Shaun Alexander in his prime as one of the most ferocious, big, and most talented "sifters" i've ever seen run.

He managed to just sift past dudes. After he sifted through the scrum, he would barrel through safeties.

I see a lot of Shaun Alexander in Trent Richardson not just the fact that they were 1st round picks by Mike Holmgren involved teams and both played RB at Alabama- but rather just mean dudes that find ways to not get tackled. Put on the jets when they need, put down the shoulder when they need.

If Richardson has an Alexander career, I'd be happy as hell.

Shaun Alexander and Trent lol?

I see Trent being the same runner Mark Ingram is but a tad better.

I just don't see Shaun Alexander potential in Trent. He isn't fast enough but he's strong as hell.

Alex had fluint hips and had some very good speed. Dude was shifty and did have a mammonth of a oline blocking for him.
