    Question A diesel run...

    Not necessarily as "the best" of course, but how about John Riggins / Redskins? Shouldn't he be among the group of the great ones?
    :confused:

    Riggins was my kind of RB, but he was the product of a system, his seasons with the Jets were good but not great .... in Washington he came into a situation not unlike Emmitt in Dallas, any better than average RB could be successful, with that OL and good playcalling.

    Great tackle-breaker ..... mentioned with the best in his era ( maybe over a 10 year period.) but probably not with the all-time greats.

    I did really love him though. He and Chuck Foreman are in that same mold. Foreman was awesome too .....................

    Oh Man, I used to love watching Riggins play along with his Hogs.

    In the early days here in the UK, Chanel 4 used to show all the Skins games.

    Bo?

    If Bo Jackson had even a 1/4 step on a defender, GONE. He quite possibly had the most talent of anyone I have ever seen. Would his injury today sit him down permanently or could modern medicine fix him?

    I just think it was a shame. I can still remember the Raiders game at home against Oakland when he took off down the sidelines in front of the Seahawk bench. They were just in awe.

    Oh yeah.I remember.Jackson basically ended Bozos career.Bo exposed Brian as the steroid using wannabe that he was,and this is coming from an OU fan.Anyway,I would have to say Payton was the best I have ever seen.If Dickerson had remained a Ram,I think he would have been the best ever

    The best ever in my opinion was Walter Payton.

    Someone who was not the best but will always be up there with Dickerson and Faulk is Wendell Tyler.

    Not the same talent level but definitely gave me some fond memories. Didn't he end his career with the Whiners though? Still you have to give props to a guy who helped us to the first Super Bowl.
    The Spartan General-King Leonidas shouted "Molon Labe" to the Persian King Xerxes, when Xerxes offered to spare the lives of Leonidas, and his people if they would lay down their arms. The phrase literally means, "Come and get them"... At the time, the Persian army outnumbered the Spartans 600,000 to 300, or 2,000-1.
