Running Back: Thurman Thomas 1988-1999
SBnation describes Thurman Thomas:
"“He never led the NFL in rushing, but did lead the league in yards from scrimmage four times, making him possibly the best all-around back of an era that included Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders. He joined Kelly in Canton in 2007, his second try at the Hall.”"
As the quote above states, Thurman Thomas entered the Hall of Fame in his second attempt at induction.
- 5 time Pro-Bowler
- 3 time All-Pro
- 1991 MVP
The running back was also voted to the all-decade team of the 1990’s.
Thomas also set NFL playoff records at the time in most career points (126), touchdowns (21), and most consecutive playoff games with a touchdown (9).
Thurman Thomas is a top ten running back of all time, and will most likely stay in that category for quite some time.
