B sanders 3062 career carries for 15,269 5.0 average
Emmitt Smith 4,409 carries for 18,355 yards 4.2 average.
No one can make the case that detriot oline was even in the class of the Cowboys oline. Lets see emmitt smith had 1,347 more carries than sanders(retire at top of his game) with 3086 more yards . B sanders would have had to average a measely 2.3 yard per carry to beat Smith.
What are you talking about? I've made it known, time and time again, that in my eyes? Barry Sanders in the Michael Jordan of the RB position; the greatest back of All-Time. I've never seen a back as great as Barry and still haven't seen a back as great as #20; that doesn't change the fact that Emmitt Smith is still an All-Time great.
