If me voicing my opinion on comparing rb's offends you there's the ignore feature.. BTW I have always said Martin would make the HOF based on his durability and longevity and he was a great guy and role model.. If he acted like Gastineau who was a 3 time All Pro do you think he gets in?? Even YJF admitted in his visit the other week that Martin was never great just good for a long time.. The HOF committee is very political otherwise Klecko and Winston Hill would have been in a long time ago..
Curtis Martin made defenders miss. He had moves and vision. You can't compare RB's today to RB's 8-10 years ago. It's a different league right now. Defenses are set up to stop the pass. Anyone with legs can run the ball. When Curtis played, defenses were more set up to stop running teams. Defenses played the run consistantly. Not today. Curtis in todays pass happy league would not have had a 3.5 YPC.
