While I was watching highlights of a young L.T. I started thinking that in today's nfl there isn't a chance that a running can get into the hall because they are not durable and can easily be replaced look at Adrian Peterson and Johnson from tennessee... Thoughts anyone?
What about Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson? Are you saying they're not making it into the Hall of Fame? Peterson missed his fifth consecutive thousand yard year by 30 yards, and he missed three games. He has 64 touchdowns and 6,752 rushing yards in 5 years.
i think guys will make hall of fame careers as running backs.peterson seems to be doing fine to me,he gets banged up but is still very productive.mjd is also producing at high rates.i think great running backs adjust to the league,i do believe jim brown would be a premiere rb if he were in the league today.his style might be different but he would be a top rb.
Few more good years and a couple of rings and you *might* be able to bring Frank Gore into the convo. It would be a very very big long shot though. He's the Niners all time leading rusher and a couple Niners RBs are in the Hall with 2 more (Watters & Craig) more then deserving.
