It depends on what your looking for.

Sanders was an awesome runner but couldn't pick up a blitz like Emmit.

That being said off the top of my head...

1 Payton
2 Sanders
3 Brown
4 Smith
5 Dickerson

AP will be passing at least a few of these though.

Barry could do it every way. blow right by you, do something retarded and run around you, or on occasion go right through you. best pure runner ever.

You watch his highlights and you see guys literally not knowing what the fuck to do as he's coming their way

Until the playoffs came and he looked average.

The problem with Sanders was too many negative runs because of dancing around in the hole looking for the homerun. Of course I'm knitpicking.

Yep, emmitt blows away Barry in big games that mattered.

Still would have to give the number one spot to Sanders, though.

Oh really? I remember them going 12 and 4 one year and 10 and 6 another year. Those sound like pretty good teams.

And Terrell Davis blew away Smith in games that mattered.  Terrell was the best playoff running back in history so where does that put him?

I can remember one season where Moore/Perriman both had around 100 catches plus they had a decent tight end plus Sanders catching balls out of the backfield as well so I am sure he did.

Sanders also had a couple pro bowl caliber players on the offensive line as well.

People want to look back to his teammates like they were a bunch of nobodies which was certainly not the case.
