[QUOTE=NY2FLDWC85;4500017]I'm not sure about all-time, because I've only watched football dating back to the early 90's; but Tomlinson is the 2nd greatest running back that I've ever seen, only behind Barry Sanders throughout the 90's. During 10 seasons of play; Sanders averaged 1,526 rushing yards per season, an average of 5.0 yards per rushing attempt (behind makeshift offensive lines), 9.9 rushing TD's per season. Not only that, but Barry also averaged 35.2 receptions, 292.1 receiving yards and 1 receiving TD per season. I've yet to see a running back with Barry's pure ability/talent since Barry himself. So thankful that I had a chance to witness his greatness as a kid growing up.
L.T was something special during his prime SD years as a Charger in his own right. Without question the 2nd greatest back of my era.
I also thought that Adrian Peterson was the greatest example of size, speed and power that I've witnessed play the game of football (in regards to the RB position). Peterson has already climbed his way up (in my eyes) as the 3rd greatest back that I've ever seen. Time will tell how he recovers from last years season ending injury. Hopefully he recovers 100%, because I've loved watching AP perform over the years.[/QUOTE]
