Very interesting.

How in the hell can Earl Campbell be kept off that list??
I think Earl was around 235 pounds, only 5 pounds off from the minimum weight of this "Big Back" list.

I think OJ played at around 210 pounds, they define big backs as 240 or more.

Campbell was very talented, but I think he was more like 8 to 10 pounds shy of "big back" status.

rip ironhead (my personal favorite other than the bus). butts and means were alright for a few years too. but other than the bus the nigerian nightmare might have been the sickest most intimidating "big back". im suprised the bus wasnt slighted just to get the greatest fans riled up.

Bussy deserves it from a pure size plus athletisism viewpoint. But to me the greatest big back ever was,... Bo Jackson. I know he was more of an optimum sized back weight wise,... but i have'nt seen ANYONE with his combination of speed and POWER since he got hurt. He was like Jim Brown with Wille Parker's wheels.
