Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders.  Need I say more?

Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders. Need I say more?

Yesterday, Sports List of the Day went out on an offseason limb and gave you every NFL team’s all-time passing leader – along with the current QB numbers for comparison (and to see who will take over).

Today, it’s the running backs’ turn.  Again, note the asterisk for each RB who is not far away from taking his team’s rushing crown.

Thanks for visiting!  You can mouse over these charts to highlight each row.  Scroll to the bottom to check out the archives by sport or date.  Or click on any of the links to the right –>
