This is going to be an interesting debate because just like you see in bball you have that perceived ability vs. actual production.

So I could see why he might list them in that order, but I wouldn't because it's not played on paper.

It's incredible how fast a RB's career can fade, some of those names on the list went from great Backs to nothing really quick (Particularly Deuce McCalister)

Default Re: Top Ten Running Backs of the Millennium

we've had this debate before...

Gale Sayers played 5 seasons

I would have AD in there before Gale

and compare Earl Campbell's numbers to Martin's...it's not even close

Curtis Martin was never a top 3 running back at any point of his career. That's before and after the Emmitt/Barry era.

he was in 2004, perhaps a couple other years

it doesn't matter though, there were just even better RBs around...


Curtis Martin ran for 1,000+ yards TEN YEARS IN A ROW

Chris Johnson shouldn't be in the top 10, Clinton Portis should.

Joseph Addai

Maybe some players like Warrick Dunn and Thomas Jones should be added. Can't think of anyone off the top of my head
