Who are the greatest running backs in history for each Franchise?
 
Whoops, I meant Running back in the title. Yeah, I'm still sick.

Here's my opinion (I'm excluding players that were great but were with a team for a short time, or weren't great for that team. ie. Tomlinson with the Jets)

49ERS - Craig
BEARS - Payton
BENGALS - Dillon
BILLS - Simpson
BRONCOS - Davis
BROWNS - Brown
BUCS - Dunn
CARDINALS - Anderson
CHARGERS - Tomlinson
CHIEFS - Holmes
COLTS - Moore
COWBOYS - Smith
DOLPHINS - Csonka
EAGLES - Van Buren
FALCONS - Anderson
GIANTS - Barber
JAGUARS - Taylor
JETS - Martin
LIONS - Sanders
PACKERS - Taylor
PANTHERS - Williams
PATRIOTS - Nance
RAIDERS - Allen
RAMS - Dickerson
RAVENS - Lewis
REDSKINS - Riggins
SAINTS - McAllister
SEAHAWKS - Alexander
STEELERS - Harris
TEXANS - Foster
TITANS - Campbell
VIKINGS - Peterson

Cowboys would be aikman staubach or romo. Depends if you go by statistics or Super Bowl wins

wingah 01-22-2013 10:25 AM

You have this titled greatest QBs but your list is RBs

frankhoover 01-22-2013 10:27 AM

OP meant to put running backs in the title.

JonMead 01-22-2013 10:27 AM

I think he listed running backs for quarterbacks by mistake

asujbl 01-22-2013 10:27 AM

Jim Brown was an awesome Quarterback

HaystaK760 01-22-2013 10:28 AM

It's early :)

fert360 01-22-2013 10:29 AM

Gore is for the 49ers

and suck it. I will cough right into your mouth.

deltapi1049 01-22-2013 10:30 AM

Hornung for the packers - my guess.

Imac7065 01-22-2013 10:31 AM

Dolphins is Ricky Williams not Csonka.. Ricky broke all of his records. If they re sign Reggie Bush he might pass ricky in 4-5 years

kl4life2 01-22-2013 10:32 AM

I think Ben Gay was a better running back than Jim Brown - only change I see.

Hornung was a good player, but Taylor was a better RB by a long shot.

If you honestly believe this, you are way way too young. Or perhaps the word is Naive.

I agree on deangelo williams for panthers. here's my top list of Panthers backs
1.Williams
2.stewart
3.foster
4.biakabutuka
5.davis

Um.. neither.. A) Csonka was a fullback not a running back B) Ricky Williams is the dolphins all time leading rusher for both season and career and C) Ricky was just an overall better rusher lol.

I think you might be a bit biased by the man himself rather than the stats and career.

I think if Foster had been able to be healthy and hang on for a few more years than it would have been him instead.

Ben Gay rubs his way into hte endzone!

loved him back there. had a bad case of fumble-itis though.

Yeah. Being the Rushing leader on an undefeated Dolphins team is totally something I miscalculated. Vs. a pot head who tried when he wanted to, and had one good season with the Dolphins. He also had only 3 thousand yard rushing seasons with the team. Coincidentally the exact same amount as Czonka. Only with much much less team success.

dbrown 01-22-2013 10:56 AM

glad to also see Tiki up there on list, hometown native :)!

So yes... biased against the man cancelling the player lol

Ricky has the team records for rushing.. and csonka wasn't a running back.. but somehow csonka was a better running back? Not getting it lol.. but it's your list not mine.

cadillac540 01-22-2013 10:58 AM

As much as I love Warrick Dunn, I might consider James Wilder for the Bucs

groundsupport 01-22-2013 10:59 AM

Whos better? Sayers or Payton? Sayer blew his knee out and he is the youngest HOFer.

Cubsbball25 01-22-2013 11:02 AM

Glad to see The Juice get the nod over Thurman. Thurman was one hell of a back too just not quite as good as OJ.
