    What do you mean besides Detroit and Cleveland?

    Aaron Jones and Austin Ekeler come to mind for what your asking

    Derek Henry is slowing down imo

    Nick Chubb is the best but we can't include Cleveland?

    I assumed the best franchise running backs ever for Detroit and Cleveland were Jim Brown and Barry Sanders.

    Asking who are the other teams greatest backs ever.

    Cowboys- Emmett Smith
    Bills -OJ Simpson
    Bears-Walter Payton
    Chargers-Ladainian Tomlinson
    Rams-Marshall Faulk
    Broncos-Terrell Davis
    Viikings- Adrian Peterson

    Off the rip I'd say these guys are locks

    I go Franco - Bettis’s first 3 years (which are included in Hidhoe’s stats) were with the Rams. That’s over 3K yards outside a Steeler uniform (vs only 170 for Harris at Seattle). Add in the Super Bowl MVP and I pick Harris.

    Being honest I completely forgot Bettis being a Ram

    For my favorite team (Denver) i initially thought of Floyd Little.

    However upon checking the career stats of Denver's running backs Terrell Davis is no question the best.

    Floyd Little comes in second. Other notable Denver running backs are Otis Armstrong, Sammy Winder and Clinton Portis.

    I think that Buffalo isnt necessarily a lock with OJ. thurman thomas was a much better receiver. I think i would take him.

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.

    I was torn between Dickerson and Faulk as well. Both pairs were phenomenal

    Martin

    Steelers - Franco Harris

    Best post- season back in history.

    He's one of only three Steelers to have his number retired.

    Terry Bradshaw was AMAZING!!

    I would go with alexander over lynch. Alexander was a TD machine. 18 more TD's in 26 fewer games.

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.
