We have chose a third greatest RB of all time. By edging out Rick Fenney, Barry Sanders becomes the board's choice as the 3rd greatest RB of all time. The list now looks like this:

1) Adrian Peterson
2) Walter Payton
3) Barry Sanders


So take a moment and vote for the dude you think belongs next in the list. If you think someone else should get the vote, simply post the name and I'll add him to the poll.

Thanks for participating !

Well I just saw an interview of Emmitt Smith on ESPN Classic. He was asked "who was the greatest running back of all time ?"

His reply: "Without a doubt, it's Walter Payton. He's at the top of the list. Trust me, top of the list."

Well, we're down to two voters in here... and I was one of them.

Apparently, people in here don't think this is a worthwhile endeavor.

Okee dokee.

I voted for Dickerson, but I could be convinced Jim Brown is the correct answer.

Kind of hard to take this poll seriously when Darrin Nelson's name is up there and Emmit's isn't.

Jim Brown. Best ever pure running back. Gayle Sayers second. Walter Payton was a great one, too. Ed Marinaro is right there, though.

No mention of Barry Sanders?

I just voted for OJ. None of the others are capable of killing people - as far as I know.

Used to be, and in most cases still is, it was the knees, that defensive teams try to takeout for running backs.

Ever since “ bountygate “, a more subtle shift has taken place to include ankles into the mix.

Some people are saying Frank Gore is a future HOFer. That's a tough one. You can't help but be impressed by his consistency and longevity.
