Default 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
