Terrell Davis was eliminated in the first round.

I still have to pick Marshall Faulk. He just doesn't stand up in comparison to these other guys.

I went with Roger Craig. He was more of a receiving running back which I feel was a result of being more a part of the system. Also having Rice, John Taylor, & Montana didn't hurt.

Roger Craig. Nothing against him, but I dont think he was an all-time great, certainly not with those on the list.

I went with Bo Jackson. James, I'm curious as to how you think Faulk isn't at least equal to Craig, if not better than him...and I voted for Jackson, so I obviously would put Faulk ahead of him. Look at the numbers. Faulk has a higher yards per carry average than Craig, more career TD's, more pro bowls, more rushing yardage, more receiving yardage, etc. Looking at the numbers, it looks like Faulk had a better career than Thurman Thomas as well. Here's my list from weakest (most deserving of getting voted off) to strongest (most deserving of getting to stay):

1. Bo Jackson
2. Roger Craig
3. Thurman Thomas
4. Marshall Faulk
5. Eric Dickerson
6. Emmitt Smith
7. Walter Payton
8. Jim Brown
9. Barry Sanders

Craig was a great RB. Only reason his actual numbers dont stack up to some of the others in this elimination is because of that elite passing game they had. As far as Thurman Thomas goes, I consider him possibly the greatest RB in history, although I of course consider Payton up there as well. Without Thurman Thomas, the Bills go nowhere. He was the key to their running and passing game. Like him or hate him, the league will never see a back like Thurman again.
