Default 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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
