I thought we already covered about Emmitt being the GOAT. And it is a common misconception that Emmitt succeeded because of his O-line. His blockers and Daryl Johnson said it was just as much of a case of him making them better. Emmitt played for 15 years and turned well over 1000 yards per season as long as he was healthy. In 1993, Emmitt averaged 5.3 YPC but Lincoln Coleman (3.9) and Derrick Lassic (3.6) weren't remotely as good and they did not have the 8-man fronts. In 1992, when Emmitt ran for 4.6, Curvin Richards had a 3.6. In 1991, Emmitt was 4.3 and Daryl Johnson (the #2 best back) was 3.2 YPC. It carries through his many, many, many, many years of service to the NFL, HOF and really the world as we know it.
Now that we've finally had that decided, who would be #2? What part of Texas was he from? Adrian Peterson/Palestine, Texas? Ladanian Tomlinson/Waco, Texas? Eric Dickerson/Sealy, Texas? Earl Campbell/Tyler, Texas?
Yeah. Probably Earl.
