    Foreman in a landslide... the complete package.
    AD may be a better runner, but will never do the things Foreman did as far as blocking and receiving.
    If AD stays healthy, and has a longer career, I suspect he will pass Foreman.
    Don't forget to mention that Chuck invented the spin move & executed it so well.

    not to mention he had a total of 3 1000 yard seasons, and never topped 4.3 yards per carry in a season.
    He did have impressinve catching numbers though.

    What?
    No love for Hershel Walker?
    He cost three 1st and three 2nd, and various other picks and players.

    For that price he MUST be the best RB in the NFL not only on the VIKES.

    I think SD would give up LT for that deal.

    Different game then...check this info from Wikipedia; His pass-catching ability out of the backfield, combined with the ability to make the first tackler miss, was a key in the Minnesota Viking offense, which was sort of a pre-cursor of the West Coast Offense which became popular in the following decades.
    True that.
    He also had 51 TD's over a 3-year span.
    Not the fastest, not the quickest, not the strongest, however, Chuck could play serious ball.
    Rookie of the Year in 1973, and never looked back.

    Foreman was a five time Pro-Bowler and 4 time All-Pro...'nuf said as far as Vikes backs go.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    No love for Scottie Graham, Ted Brown, D.J. Dozier, Harold Morrow, Hugh McElhenny, Jim Lindsey, Rickey Young, or Darrin Nelson?

    WTF?

    Completely different running styles, so yes, I'd say nobody runs like AP.
    Then again, nobody runs like Barry either.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
