Default Who is the most talented RB of all time?

NOT to be confused with the greatest RB of all time. That's way beside the point here.

IMO, it's a tough call between OJ Simpson and Marshall Faulk

These two guys could do it all.

Most talented runner is Barry Sanders. Most balanced RB would be Marshall Faulk.

Barry Sanders is the most talented. He played most of his NFL career without a fulltime fullback, and was still dominant. In his 8th season he finally played with a fulltime fullback and rushed for 2000 yards. Just imagine what he would have done if he played in a traditional offense for his whole career.

Barry Sanders played in an era where the defenses were flatout WEAK.. Much slower, and a WHOLE LOT less physical. Barry Sanders would've never been able to pull this kind of sh*t against today's NFL defenses and players.

Barry Sanders only looked that good because of how garbage the defenses were that he played against.

Look how sick Reggie Bush looked in College, he got to the NFL and got his weak run game SHUT DOWN. The NFL defensive pro's in Barry Sanders era, are equivalent to College defensive players of today, at best. Most NFL pro's in Barry's era would've struggled to even make the starting defense on most top 10 college teams. So if Barry Sanders is the greatest running back of all time, then so is Reggie Bush. Except Reggie is actually playing against players that KNOW how to tackle.

When Barry Sanders can run like that against the 2010 Baltimore Ravens defense, then come talk to me. Until then, STFU with this Barry Sanders is the GOAT BS. It's like Kimbo beating up a bunch of bums in the streets and you nerds coming on here and saying Kimbo is the best fighter on the planet.

So basically what you are saying is you never watched football pre 2001? OK, good to know.
