The -primetime- TOP-20 RBs of All-Time
 
*some notes*
-This is based on what HAS happened thus far, I am not ranking on what could have happened (*IF* Barry Sanders didn't quit, *IF* Earl Campbell didn't get injured, etc) I am ranking these players on what ACTUALLY happened.
-This applies to players that are still playing, in this list I believe the only active player is Peterson, I think most agree that he looks to be much better than Edgerrin ever did, however he has not yet quite accomplished what James did so as of today I can't place him over. In time that will change obviously, and others could creep in as well.
-I should take this time to acknowledge I was wrong about Curtis Martin lol, he isn't quite top-10, in fact I am sure I have made past lists that differ from this list, don't bother bumping them, this is my final list. I got a decent amount of time today to mull this over.
-There are somethings that stats and awards don't show obviously, for example Barry couldn't block or run between the tackles, he had other areas where he struggled as well, these are why he is behind Emmitt and Walter to me. Others on this list may have similar issues

I'll say only this, you're inconsistent.

The reasons you outlined previously for ranking Martin over Earl is not consistent with this list you just put out.

Emmit shouldn't be ranked below a guy who Emmit has a 6000 rushing yards and 50 touchdown edge over.

Terrell Davis has no business being ranked over Edgerrin James, whom Edge has a 4500 yard advantage (6500 total yards) and 25 total touchdown advantage.


:facepalm

:facepalm

I'm huge on YPC...Jim's 5.2 YPC will never be beaten, and he has 3 MVPs

that is the same reason Davis is over Edge...4.6 YPC, and 1 MVP :lol

YPC is the only reason AD even made the top-20

this list is very consistant, but like I said in the notes there are some issues that stats don't show with players

and the reasons I outlined previously for ranking Martin over Earl is still present here...only I wasn't able to squeeze Martin the top-10 like I thought...very close though

not sure why that is funny to you...the guy is a HOFer...6th ALL TIME in rushing yards...and he was flat out awesome

I guess somehow you missed him playing but I didn't...he belongs in a top-20 list for sure, no question

Honestly, I'd prob switch Davis and Peterson on the list. Davis had prob the best 3 year stretch ever tho (or at least one of them).

Yeah, but even that is kind of biased against AD because it's so hard for a RB to win MVP now that it is such a pass happy league. AD could run for 2000/15 and they would just stick him with OPOY and give MVP to A-Rod while he throws for 5000/40.

If AD didn't get hurt last year, he would have started his career with 6 straight years of at least 1300/10 (including what his ending #s will be this year. That's ****ing retarded lol.

I've heard Peterson in MVP talks this year, its not impossible...and I fully expect him to climb this list very quickly.

There are 11 guys on that list who have no business being over Gale Sayers.

Faulk was better and more importantly more clutch than Tomlinson. I don't care about marginal differences in stats.

The primary reason Faulk had so few TDs compared to others all timers is because the Rams had so many targets.

:wtf:

Marshall in his 3 prime years with the Rams averaged 20 touchdowns, per year.

In what world is that "few?"
