Marcus Allen is the hardest RB to rank IMO

his numbers there justify it, but if you look at his year to year stats it isn't too impressive


he came in the league with a bang and won MVP, but after that never had a 1,000 year again

also, Fred Taylor is one of the most underrated RBs ever...only 1 PB yet his numbers are that of a top-20 all time...

and Gale Sayers is the most overrated, could someone tell me why this guy is found on so many top-10 lists?...his resume isn't anything even close to deserving of that.

another thing I noticed is that Emmitt Smith's TD record is much more safe than his yardage record

164 rushing TDs is on a whole different planet..the drop off after him is huge, Walter Payton who is #4 on that list, just has 110 TDs, a huge 54 TD difference

He's high based on his impact in the era he played in. You keep harping on how long he played his total career stats when top lists arent always based on just that. Another reason why Earl Campbell is on top 10 lists. The period in which he played he dominated. Just because a guy compiles more stats than the other doesnt mean he was the better player.

edit: WTF?... only one good year?

I would have guessed he had a few good years.

He sure had a great dance though.

I'd also like to shout out to Christian Okoye "The Nigerian Nightmare" and Natrone Means "Business".


Big Running Backs are the $hit if they can produce... They punish defenses.
That's why you have to put Jerome Bettis close to #15.


If this guy WASN'T Steve Atwater... He would have gotten bulldozed.





Me and my friends used to call Troy Hambrick "the mini van"... He wasn't that big, but bigger than the average running back... We rode that mini van straight into the playoffs that first year under Parcells.

(and I hate to say this, but Brandon Jacobs was the $hit.)

It means they had a better career

Bo Jackson might be the GOAT, but due to a lack of resume aka career, you can't rank him high unless it is just being based on one year or prime years.

Also to me the current era is harder for RBs than Gales era...it is much harder for a RB to win MVP today and every down backs are becoming extinct...

Bo Jackson.....He never even ran for 1000 yards in a year, had five touchdowns in his best year, and averaged 79, 58, 87, 70 yards per game in his four seasons. His greatest attribute is his YPC, but a high YPC doesn't qualify you as a potential GOAT prime player. If that was the case Jamal Charles could be argued as the GOAT prime player as over a five year window he averaged like 6 yards per carry.

Not like Bo was out there banging out 1800 yard seasons with 15 touchdowns for three or four years. He wasn't that productive, so THATS why he shouldn't be ranked high regardless of what critera you use.

EXACTLY....his lack of numbers, his lack of stats, his lack of 1,800 yard seasons


Just like Gale

Barry Sanders should probably be #1.
