Sometimes a good back will go down when he's touched. That's smart football. Ask Earl Campbell, William Andrews and Jamal Anderson, all of whom had to retire before their time. All of these backs were tough, punishing backs, but all of those needless hits they subjected themselves to for a yard or two cost them years at the end of their careers.
