Only -pt- could find a way to pick a fight about Earl Campbell in an LT retirement thread.

career rushing yards:
http://www.pro-football-reference.co...yds_career.htm
30th- Earl Campbell 9,407

career rusing TDs:
http://www.pro-football-reference.co..._td_career.htm
23th- Earl Campbell 74

yet somehow he is one of the 10 greatest runners of all time

your top-10 list is garbage if Campbell is in it...

Default Re: Ladainian Tomlinson to retire

I don't even see an arguement for Campbell over a player like Shaun Alexander...who is not a top-10 all time either

or Jamal Lewis

or Marcus Allen

or Bettis

nevermind the givens (Brown/Barry/Emmitt/Payton/etc)



I would love to see your top-10 list Carbine...and yours GoBB

I think we can all conclude that prime is either Skip Bayless himself or the offspring of Skip Bayless.

Ok.

Shaun Alexander>>>>>>Earl Campbell





And I was a HUGE Shaun Alexander fan. But if you seriously think Shaun Alexander is a better RB than Earl Campbell, you need to follow a different sport.

Default Re: Ladainian Tomlinson to retire

my list:

1. Jim Brown
2. Walter Payton
3. Emmitt Smith (I know I know, I'm a homer
4. Barry Sanders
5. Erik Dickerson
6. LaDainian Tomlinson
7. Marshall Faulk
8. Tony Dorsett
9. O.J. Simpson
10. Marcus Allen

I think that is my top-10 for now

and there would still be several others ahead or Earl...I don't see an arguement for him over any of those players

what's the arguement?

Alexander has MORE career yards
Alexander has MORE career TDs
Alexander ran for 4.3 YPC, tied with Campbell
Alexander had a 2,000 year (Earl didn't)
Alexander also has an NFL MVP

what excatly makes you put Earl over him?

Wait, so you can't find a guy with 1 AP MVP award, 3 Offensive Player of The Year awards and 3 rushing titles?

How about finding a guy with 3 MVP's voted on by your peers? Oh, is Jim Brown the only one in the 52 year history of the award? My fault.

This is embarrassing. Jerome Bettis? I'm leaving.

If that wasn't enough, he was a back to back to back winner of the MVP award voted on by players in the NFL (The Newspaper Enterprise MVP award) and back to back MVP voted on by the Pro Football Writers Association....and voted as an MVP by the Associated Press.
they still have 10 other RBs above him

and that list is utter and complete garbage...

Again, it's not all about stats. But you can't comprehend that. It'd be easier to convince a brick wall that it's made of wood than trying to have a logical conversation/debate with you.
