Marion Motley's best years were in the AAFC. He might belong on this list if you include those years (debatable), but he rushed for < 1700 yards and 5 TDs in 4.5 yrs in the NFL. No way he if a top 10 NFL back.

My ranking system is based mostly on numbers and NFL Films so maybe I'm biased from not having seen live action, but there's no way I'd have Simpson higher than 6th, let alone 2nd. Boo NBC.
Oct 16th, 2009 at 18:18 GMT
These types of lists make me mad. Some people in sports hold on to the past so hard they do not even consider the present.
Oct 16th, 2009 at 18:38 GMT
No way Earl Campbell doesn't make it.

I'd like to see old Bronko have to face today's NFLers.
Oct 17th, 2009 at 00:49 GMT
it would be nice to see marshall faulk, marcus allen, curtis martin, and perhaps tomlinson on here

OJ is easily a top 5 NFL back. First man to rush for over 2,000 yards in a season and still the only one to do it in 14 games. Also formerly the single-game rushing yards leader. He also did it while playing on some horrible Buffalo teams that knew he was gonna get the ball every time. People are quick to dismiss him because of his post-playing career, but on the field he was easily one of the best and being #2 is not a stretch for OJ.

I quit when Payton was 5th. Why make a quiz about a garbage list?
Oct 17th, 2009 at 15:31 GMT
Also based on watching NFL films, Gale Sayers may have been better than Jim Brown, but either way, they are the two greatest I have ever seen.
Oct 17th, 2009 at 16:09 GMT
I would have done better but I refused to type OJ in. Murderous thugs are not great to me.
Oct 17th, 2009 at 18:51 GMT
This list is why I watch ESPN for my sports.
Oct 17th, 2009 at 18:53 GMT
its a travesty that Payton is 5th. Payton should be no lower than 2nd or 3rd. Emmitt Smith is the all time leading rusher because he had an amazing offensive line his whole career. Walter Payton was on terrible Bears teams early in his career. There's no one better than Sweetness.

If you don't think Simpson belongs in the top five, you aren't paying attention. He absolutely CRUSHED the entire NFL for years, playing on an awful team (whose opponents keyed on him).
Oct 18th, 2009 at 01:11 GMT
Sanders is better then Simpson easily and arguably better then Brown. I know Simpson was amazing but he was also a murderer.
Oct 18th, 2009 at 04:17 GMT
Very surprised not to see Marcus Allen, Earl Campbell, or Ladanian Tomlinson on this list, but nothing against any of these players...no doubt they were all among the greatest ever.
Jun 21st, 2010 at 08:38 GMT
F*cking NBC. What do they know about anything anyway. Agree with several of you that Campbell & Allen should be on here. Curtis Martin should probably be here also instead of those last 2. Makes me sick that all the "experts" disrespect Emmitt. He had the job the longest and went on to rack up the most yards and touchdowns ever and after 15 seasons of getting hit in nearly every play he was still in good enough shape to win Dancing with the Stars. Sanders & Brown were both quitters! Emmitt is the greatest ever! End of discussion.

No Campbell or Thomas? Give me a break
Jan 23rd, 2011 at 16:19 GMT
Alot of negativity here. I think it's reasonable for the top five to be ordered in any way - probably adding Dickerson to the list. Personally I think Brown was the most dominant ever, but I can see other arguments. Much respect for the inclusion of Motley, he's one of the main reasons the Browns were dominant immediately upon entering the NFL in '50. Would include Steve Van Buren on the list instead of Dorsett. The next ten for me would include (in some order) Tomlinson, Thurman, Campbell, Riggins, Faulk, Martin, Dillon, Hinkle ... Jim Taylor? Joe Perry? Hmm, those last couple of slots would be hard.

If this list comprised of all around backs, it would have to have Payton on the top of this list. 16,726 yards rushing 4,532 yards receiving. 5 TD passes thrown. Followed by Faulk, Tomlinson, T. Thomas, Allen, Martin...gotta love those all-around backs, not the one phased ones. Nonetheless Sanders, Dickerson, Brown, Bettis, Simpson were game changers as well.
