    Walter is number 1 for sentimental reasons for me. Lt has to be top 20 though.

    I don't think I've seen any of them play basketball so it's hard to say.

    I'd say he's not even top 50 in the NBA:

    Re: Where does LT rank all time?

    Guys like Gale Sayers, Earl Campbell, and Bo Jackson would be top 10 guys if they had longer careers in my book. That's why I left them out

    I'd go like this:

    1.) Walter Payton - may not have the best numbers, but the most gifted runner I've ever seen.
    2.) Barry Sanders
    3.) Jim Brown
    4.) Curtis Martin - I don't understand why he's never higher on peoples lists.
    5.) Emmitt Smith
    6.) LT
    7.) Gale Sayers - His numbers would have rivaled anyones had he stayed healthy.
    8.) Faulk

    Everyone else.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    No way he's above Emmitt.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Tough pick. in their primes though, if I had to pick which rb I'd rather take, I'd have taken LT. Can't go wrong with either.

    A lack of Herschel Walker makes your opinion wrong.

    Wouldn't make my top 20 NFL rb's. If we were talking college he'd be tops.

    Add in his USFL stats and he is a beast.

    Herschel Walker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Walker rushed for 5,562 yards in his USFL career.[12] His combined rushing numbers for the USFL and the NFL (13,787 yards) would place him 5th All-Time on the NFL's career rushing list.[13] In 12 NFL seasons, Walker gained 8,225 rushing yards, 4,859 receiving yards, and 5,084 kickoff-return yards.[14] This gave him 18,168 total combined net yards, ranking him second among the NFL's all-time leaders in total yardage at the time of his retirement; as of the start of the 2007 NFL season, ten years after his retirement, he still ranks eighth.[15] He also scored 84 touchdowns: 61 rushing, 21 receiving and two kick off returns for touchdowns.[14] Walker is the only other player besides Derrick Mason to have 10,000+ yards from scrimmage and 5,000+ return yards (all of which were on kickoff returns).

    He is the only player to gain 4,000 yards three different ways: rushing, receiving and kickoff returns. He is one of six players (Jim Brown, Lenny Moore, Marcus Allen, Marshall Faulk, and Thurman Thomas) to exceed 60 touchdowns rushing and 20 touchdowns receiving. Another NFL record is that he is the only player with a 90+ yard reception, 90+ yard run and a 90+ yard kickoff return all in the same season (1994). He is the only player to record an 84+ yard touchdown run and an 84+ yard touchdown reception, in the same game (December 14, 1986). That same day, he had 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving. Walker is currently ranked eighth all time in all-purpose yards with 18,168, despite spending his first three seasons in the USFL.

    It goes Payton, Sanders, Emmitt...then everyone else. LT is probably top10 though for sure.
