Best Football Running Backs of All Time
The Contenders: Page 5XW
The most underrated running back on this list. He had the tough job of following Jim Browns act after Brown suddenly retired. He led the league in punt returns in 1964 and helped the Browns win the NFL tiltle. He then ran for over 1, 000 yards in 1965, 66, 67 and '68 leading the league in rushing in 1967 and 1968 as well as leading the league in scoring in 1968 as well. He had blazing speed, smooth elusive moves and was tough as nails. He was also a great receiver and threw for several touchdowns from the option play. He is a Hall of Fame back and deserves more recognition as he helped the Browns make the playoffs almost every year until he retired.

Wilbert got it done without a front line.
Outstanding running back that made on bad fumble. JUst an amazing player.
I played in the backfield with Ernest in high school (Baldwin High School, Milledgeville, Ga) Very quick, great hands, and could cut on a dime. His rushing totals has him at #41. He won a Super Bowl with Washington and has had several 1000 yard seasons. He is a top 50 running back.
You've got to be kidding. One of the first great runners to play the game. Lets go SMU!V1 Comment
