I think the best running back is Barry Sanders. He could get a easy hand off and turn it in to a 60 yard touchdown. Barry Sanders could have beat a lot of records , but he wanted the 2 string running back to play. I'm not the person that knows about the great rushing yards of Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton ,and Jerome Bettis.
