People love debating who is the best-of-the-best and who is the GOAT (Greatest of All-Time) at each position in American football. It's a fun debate with our friends because it's interesting to see how much loyalty plays into rankings. A person can be a life-long fan of the team the running back is on, or they may have met the athlete once in their lifetime, but it's enough to create a connection and an attachment.
Below I am going to give my Top Ten (10) Running Backs of all-time. Football is a game far beyond the stat sheets. It's a game about heart, leadership, effort, and willingness to put your body in harm's way.
Before we may make our way into the top 10. We need to speak about several honorable mentions, which will set the path to the goal line (Yes, Pun was intended.).
