Default Re: The -primetime- TOP-20 RBs of All-Time

Bettis only had more than 10 TD's once in his prime, rushed for more than 1450 yards just one in his career, had 1500 TOTAL YARDS (not a huge accomplishment, BTW) just three times in his career.

You can rank by careers, fine, but when you start listing Jim Brown over Emmit who had 7000 total yards and 50 touchdown advantage over Brown....it doesn't add up.

You said you did that because of the YPC and MVP awards..... that makes up for the gigantic edge of 7000 yards and 50 touchdowns in your book.

So why then do you rank Jerome Bettis over Earl Campbell who Bettis only has a 5000 yard/20 touchdown advantage over Earl, but Earl has many more individual accolades and almost a half yard advantage in YPC?

I've been over this before with you as well about Earl's MVP awards, there is no evidence to suggest that the Pro Football Writers of American MVP award back then wasn't every bit as worthy as the AP MVP, or that the MVP as voted on by the players isn't an equally worthy MVP award (it's one of the most prestige awards in the NHL, BTW) So to say Earl only has 1 MVP is terribly misleading and on the verge of flubbing the truth to downplay him.
