I think the bigger the back the harder they fall. For every action there is an opposite reaction and they take the force of the hit they lay on the other player just as hard. There have been some great backs over the years that took too much punishment and had short careers- Larry Johnson and Earl Campbell come to mind.

It is amazing how long Bettis lasted.
