Who's Your Greatest Running Back of All Time ?

Lets just jump right into this and start listing the top 3 runners of all time ......

1. Jim Brown - Rushing Stats : 2,359 Carries / 12312 Yards / 106 TD's Receiving Stats : 262 Receptions / 2499 Yards / 20 TD's Career Totals : 14811 Yards & 126 TD's

Brown had to be number one . He made the pro game look like pee wee football in his day . And lets be honest here he got his numbers while only playing 12 & 14 game seasons .The man held the rushing title for 19 years ..... The most of any runner in history .

2. Walter Payton- Rushing Stats : 3838 Carries / 16726 Yards / 110 TD's Receiving Stats : 492 Receptions / 4538 Yards / 15 TD's Career Totals : 21264 Yards & 125 TD's

Sweetness was well just that . At the time of his retirement he held records for most career yards rushing, most combined net yards, most seasons with more than 1,000 yards rushing, most yards rushing in a single game, most rushing touchdowns, and most receptions by a running back . He held the title for 15 years . Second only to Jim Brown .

3. Barry Sanders

- Rushing Stats : 3062 Carries / 15269 / 99 TD's Receiving Stats : 352 Receptions / 2921 Yards / 10 TD's Career Stats : 18190 Yards & 109 TD's

Sanders was in line to break Paytons record when he abruptly retired just 1457 yards short of the record . While playing Sanders was one of the most elusive and electrifying runners the game has ever seen . Stoping & starting up on a dime and just makin folks look silly .

So thats my top 3 guys who you guys got ?
