How would he not be the greatest running back?

Fastest player to reach 100 td's!

Must you forget the competition is much greater now then it was 20-30 years ago.

uh, 14 games vs 16 games?

and bullcrap about the competition! Players are larger because high school and college players are better trained to build body mass.

100 TD's isn't that important to me when deciding the best back ever. 14 games vs. 16 as ih8brady said...

LT still has several years left in him. if he keeps the pace he is at now and retires when hes ~32, he will be the greatest ever.

he's the best back since Marshall Faulk... he's a touchdown machine... but he's not racking up 1,700 yard rushing seasons... he perhaps could, if they ran him enough... but they keep him fresh... their line is also quite dominant...

Kris Dielman is a beast at guard for them, and he's an unrestricted free agent this offseason... Miami should target him, or Cincy's Eric Steinbach...

Uh, fastest player to reach 100 TOUCHDOWNS in history not in terms of how many seasons they played. So I really don't know what you're trying to say about 14 games vs 16 games.

Ladanian Tomlinson reached his 100th touchdown in 89 games (Currently has 102). Emmit Smith 100 touchdowns in 93 games. Jim Brown 100 touchdowns in 93 games.

It takes more than TD's to make a great running back.

In 1984, the Dolphins had a power back named Pete Johnson who had all of 150 yards for the season but he had 9 touchdowns because he was the Fins short yardage back.

So LT is the best back because he was fastest to 100 tds.......

Sigh...all hail stats.

Walter Payton will always be in my opinion the greatest ever.

He was a complete back. Hell, he was probably the most versatile player ever in the NFL.

He could everything. He passed and even started at quarterback for a few games when the Bears were terrible. He could catch, he is the Bears all-time leader in receptions. He could lay devasting blocks. He kicked for his team in college. And of course he could run. When he did run, he wouldn't puss out and jog out of bounds, he'd lay the wood and fight for more extra yards.

If you haven't seen "Pure Payton", I suggest you try to find a copy somehow.

Here's a clip from it:

I tried to find a youtube link or someother source but myspace was the only one I could find.

A fan made Payton video (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-916686890889967376&q=Walter+Payton)

I still think LT is amazing and well definately join the argument to who is the greatest.

I can't wait till Adrian Peterson gets drafted. He's gonna be the next great back as long as he stay healthy.

I have Barry sanders as #1, and Walter Payton as #2. It'll be tough for LT to get past those two, but he could surely get 3rd at the rate he is going.

14 games vs. 16 as ih8brady said...

:lol:

Ok let's do the math then. It took Jim Brown 93 games to reach 100tds, and LT 89 games. Since Jim Brown played in a 14 game season and LT in a 16 game season ... it took Jim Brown 93 games to reach 100tds while LT took .. you guessed it 89.

if you cant see how having two less games every year can hinder production numbers, let me put it this way. Imagine if it took a player twenty, five game-seasons to reach 100 TDs and that this player missed 11 games in that span(89 total games). Therefore, this player would probably had reached 100 TDs faster if he had played more games per season during his prime.


And I know I was using hyperbole, but I think I had to
