im having a little Debate with some friends need some opinions.
If you were picking teams and you needed to pick a RB who would it be.
1) Herschel Walker
2) Walter Payton
3) Emmit Smith
Herschel, easy IDC pros or college
please no homer opinions.
For the college game, I'd put Herschel 1st over Barry 2nd. For the pros, I'd put Barry in my starting lineup with all the others as backups.

I would take the guy who happens to be the fastest and strongest and biggest of the group. It's not a hard decision.
Herschel for my college team, Barry for the pros.... Emmitt Smith is extremely overrated he ran behind a HoF offensive line he really wasnt that good himself.
Barry Sanders for me, and not sure it's close. No disrespect to the other great backs.
Sanders one season starting at Oklahoma State was absolutely insane. 2,850 rushing yards in 12 games - nuts. Also, 3,471 all-purpose yards and 44 TD's in 12 games.
He would have been the all-time leading rusher in NFL history if he had wanted to.

Depends on the type of offense you are running. If you are a power running team, HW is the easy answer for me. If it is a spread attack, I would maybe go for the guy with the best hands. Great list regardless.
turned 44 yesterday!
He should be the all time rushing leader and would be if he hadn't left early. It is too bad the Lions sucked so bad they chased him out of the game and I understand he didn't want to play for just the record, but the only thing he accomplished by not getting the record was to allow a player who didn't deserve it break Sweetness' record.
