Mentioning LT in a conversation about the top 3 RB's in the history of the NFL is absurd. He was the softest RB ever to play the game.
Barry sanders belongs in the conversation. ( if he played with that Cowboy oline no one would have ever match the numbers he would have put up)
JMO I would never put Emmit Smith in my top six.(that just me)
1 JIm Brown
2 Barry Sanders
3 OJ simpson
