    that is laughable.


    More yards rushing than anyone & more touchdowns rushing than anyone in the history of football...

    let's just cover our eyes to the facts.


    oh yeah.... 3 super bowl rings....


    and probably the biggest one.... durability.....


    1. Emmitt
    (there is such a large gap I have to space it out)


    2. Walter
    3. Barry

    Being a Dallas fan, Emmitt is hands down my favorite player of all time.
    Bye Emmitt, you will be missed.

    Thanks for the memories Emmitt, I say this as a long time Cowboys fan. Emmitt is the pure definition of class on and off the field, much like Michael Jordan was. It's saddening to see one of the all time great hang em up.

    I am suprised he is saying he is not ready to retire, I thought ESPN was always correct?:roll2:
     
  9. I have to addd to your posts....

    I'd have to say Barry is #2 with his awesome runs! But by him quitting early your right! But i have to add:
    His ability to run for more yards in the fourth quarter(than the other three) and in the playoffs (let's not forget about Monday Nights either), I would take no other back! Great player! Instant HoF!

    cmon blitz we all know if MOC had returned to OSU he would be considered the greatest runner of all time....:roll2: .....if only he can get drafted.....:smash:

    On a serious note....

    Its hard to compare eras...but I would have to go with...

    1. Jim Brown
    2. Walter Payton
    3. Barry Sanders
    4. Emmitt Smith
    5. Tony Dorsett

    Just one man's humble opinion (not worth anything by the way)

    Thank god he is not retiring... he is one of the few reasons I still watch NFL anymore..

    who would have figured ESPN would report something incorrect?

    While I too aplaud Emmitt both on and off the field..I would NEVER compare him to Michael OFF the field.

    MJ was a complete joke off the court....those outside of Chicago don't really know the true MJ.
