I thought I would break out bettis stats. Couldnt help but to notice that two of his three years with the rams he averaged 3.5 yrards or les. Comes here and has an average roughly around 4.2 per carry his first year. He got spoiled running behind dawson and faneca.

Sorry, I LOVE Bettis but, Sanders was better.

The best all time was Payton IMHO.

Sanders by a mile.

If he hadn't retired early he'd put that all-time rushing record out there so far nobody would ever get it (accept LT maybe) It wouldn't be Emmit Smiths record.

I agree. Emmitt smiths records dont mean jack to me considering the offensive line he ran behind. Duce staley could put up numbers like that behind that line.

Hey, at least this isn't a random poll.

Anyone who votes Bettis over Sanders is a homer. In fact, only Walter Payton, Jim Brown, and Gale Sayers even have an argument.
