Still Working on this list: Walter Payton Or Ladainian Tomlinson still may go at number 1 for me...but Emmitt, Payton, and Tomlinson are my current top 3 - as they are all full packaged dual threats as both Runners + Receivers; they are also good blocker's....(Tomlinson can even pass the ball well..)....HAVING NARROWED DOWN MY **TOPS** TO THE PARAMETERS OF THEM HAVING TO BE A DUAL THREAT, AND GOOD BLOCKERS AS WELL...EMMITT wass my model RB in coming to this conclusion...HOWEVER, with parameters narrowed down...it will now be easier to compare each aspect of my top player's with one another....(WITH WELL ROUNDED PARAMETERS THIS BECOMES AS EASY AS RANKING MY TOP POSTMAN IN BASKETBALL...in which I simply excluded those who cannot shoot from most anywhere, or are not good foul shooters....from my very Tops list...) **FOR INSTANCE - people are always comparing who the better runner is...Barry or Emmitt, Jim Brown or WELL FACT IS....WE DO NOT NEED TO COMPARE RUNNING BACKS WHO ARE NOT GOOD RECEIVERS AND GOOD BLOCKERS TO RUNNING BACKS WHO CAN ONLY PRIMARILY RUN THE BALL = SIMPLIFIED = EMMITT IS TOPS, PAYTON IS TOPS, TOMLINSON IS TOPS....AND I WILL STUDY TO FIND MORE TOPS AS WELL... BY THE WAY - YES THIS MEANS Barry Sanders, and Jim Brown are no longer considered in my TOPS list...**YES** I still have them in my 1st Tier list....but NOT THE TOPS of my 1st Tier list...one must be an all around back to be in the tops of my 1st tier list....JIM BROWN, and BARRY SANDERS...can still be debated as to who the best running - running back is...HOWEVER, NO LONGER IN THE BEST ALL AROUND RUNNING BACK LIST...ALL AROUND BEST RUNNING BACK = THE BEST RUNNING BACKS OF ALL TIME = DUAL THREAT...and good blocker..
