Best Football Running Backs of All Time
The Contenders: Page 7
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!.
Based on his one game... This kid is a monster! Mark my words! He will be one of the greats...
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
Best running back of history in the gameV 1 Comment
He's a good wide receiver, but why is he on this list he is not a running back
He is a receiver.
Down here they are just putting random people,Eddie lacy is not even on this list he should be on the top 10
He's goodV 2 Comments
He's a top 20 and he is in the top ten 49ers of all time so is way to low he should be 13
Craig's place on this list demonstrates its invalidity.
First running back to run for 1000 yds and receive for 1000 yds in a single season!
How is #33 this low. One of the best and last high steping backs. Every great qb needs a rb to succeed and Montana had Craig.
He is small and can squeeze trough tackles and he runs faster than anyone in the nfl
He should not be in the top 10000000
Simply underrated great stats
Great running back he helped the colts win the 1958 title
Probably the best in the league.V 1 Comment
One of the quickest backs of his time. great quickness from the backfield, beast mode
His really merged with the Jets he played to Ingram for years with the Saints, now his finally showing his potential in New Jersey. - htoutlaws2012
Come on one reason Carolina got to their one Superbowl was because of Davis he's better than D. Williams and J. Stewert plus he could run over anyone in his path he was with the original double- trouble with deshaun Foster
Good running and receiving threat.
