    They're not playing for the game anymore, they are playing for the money.

    No I don't blame them, if my employer said we are going to pay you 100 million over the next 5 years I'd take it!

    They want the $ when they play well but won't give it back when they suck lol

    But we keep going to the games, buying their jerseys.

    He fell of after that point though. His 5th season was his career high in carries, with 403, carreer high in yards, and TDs. He was still ok after that season, but not really the same back after that year.

    I agree. Very good player, but I dont think he is a Hall of Famer. If they had pulled out the SB I think he and Steve's HOF case would be a lot stronger, but I think they are both more Hall of very good rather than HOF.

    Eddie was just not good enough, elite enough to be in that class. There are several backs with similar careers who are not there and should also not be there.

    A career 3.6 yards a carry is not elite!

    How is being 28th in career rushing yards good enough for the HOF? Note that Marshawn Lynch is 29th right behind him and people could argue he is more deserving.

    If Eddie deserves to be in than Jamal Lewis, Corey Dillon and Ricky Watters, Tiki Barber, Thomas Jones, Steven Jackson deserve to be in.

    Steven Jackson a similar type player had a thousand more career yards and averaged a half yard a carry more.

    Jamal Lewis and Steven Jackson were so damn good at their peak, along with Shaun Alexander. Just don't find those type of RB's anymore.

    I agree but we can see at other positions the individual statistics don’t tell the entire story.

    For example, Dillon spent almost his entire career on a losing bengals team.

    It should be noted EG is also a lot lower in total TD count too. I’ve thought that was a bigger hinderance than his YPC mark.
