The Contenders: Page 6
Tough inside runner that gave morton and stabuch a good running game to open up the passing game. Also a change of pace to walt garrison.V 1 Comment
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.
He was such a nice person off the field.
Great player that helped the 49ers get to the superbowl
Fast runner that filled big shoes after Walter Payton retired
He was the most electrify running back that I ever saw. College he can handle the opposite team by himself and Pro because of his size did not get the football enough, but when he got the football watch out something special with his magic feet happened. I still remember that MNF on his debut as a Baltimore Colt running back manhandling the opposite team by himself!.
Brooks is consistently overlooked as a great running back. He was actually the blocking back for Chuck Muncie who was at least 5 inches taller and outweighed him by 50 pounds. Mr. Brooks still managed to rack up more total yards as he was an excellent return man, averaging over 20 Y/Rtn on kickoffs and over 10 Y/Rtn on punts. After being traded to Cincinnati, Brooks rushed for over 1000 yards in 3 seasons, gaining over 1200 yards in 1989 and averaging 5.6 yards per carry. His career total all purpose yardage of 14,910 currently places him 30th all time. Csonka who is in the HOF has only 8901 all purpose yards with 4.3 yds/rush att to Brooks' 4.7. Brooks was a fierce competitor and blocker who was not only elusive but had surprising power for a small backV 1 Comment
