Yeah he was the best big back of all time. ask people who played against him (or even people who practiced against him) what it was like tackling him. DB's moved out of his way to avoid tackling him.
Joey Porter said something about tackling him during practice is what made him so physical on the football field during games. He made the whole team great, something one would expect of a HOF career.
