Emmitt Will Always Be My Number One Back

StarStruck GraphicsAn hour commute really gives you time to think and relax on the way to work. It can also give you time to get really fired up. This morning on my local sports radio, The Sports Animal, the two guys on air decide to bring up Emmitt Smith and tell their listeners that they wouldn’t even put him in the top 10-15 greatest running backs of all time. Are you freaking kidding me?!

See, this is why I don’t listen to their station regularly (much like ESPN). How in the hell do you not put him even in the top 5 when he is the NFL’s leading rusher? The record books say he’s the best, the numbers don’t lie.

I just wonder how some of these idiots get their jobs. To me Emmitt Smith will always be number one, and I can understand if not everyone agrees with me. But even those who don’t put him number one have the sense to put him second or third.

I guess we just have to adjust to all of the nonsense we are going to hear this week with Emmitt going into the Hall of Fame this weekend.

Thanks for listening to me rant, now back to work.

    He’ll never get the respect he truly deserves. People will say he has those numbers because of his line, because of his QB. All true to a point. How many times did Emmitt go down on the first hit? He always stayed up and got the extra yards. He got stronger as the game went on. And if it wasn’t for Campo in 2002 Emmitt would have once again gained 1,000 yards in the final week of the season. Emmitt is the best!!!!!

  2. Great post and awesome graphic!!! You should create a whole line of Cowboys posters and sell them! Your designs are BETTER than anything out there.
