    Emmitt Smith.

    The author has a Barry Sanders crush projecting him at over 20000 yards. Anti-Emmitt too having him outside the top 10.

    I still don't see why Fred Taylor has not ever been a Probowler if he was/is so great and I like him.

    He's been a Pro Bowler once, and although he was a solid RB, he was unfortunately in competition with really good RBs like Shaun Alexander and Edgerin James.

    C'mon Homie... not Emmitt Smith hate or Barry Sanders Crush.. just looking at the facts.. Barry would've shattered that record. Emmitt is about as good as Curtis Martin.. Nothing special, just very very solid

    yup yup. as much as i want to dislike emmett and the cowboys, and credit his success to that offense, smith is the epitome of a complete back. not exceptional in any single area, but smith had everything. there are plenty of backs that "would've" or "could've" broken the records (and some like brown held those records) - such as earl or sanders or even the impossible athlete that was bo jackson - but emmett did it. "special" is the only way to describe the all-time leading rusher.

    and ....

    earl
    jim brown
    the rest
