I have to agree with a few others on this thread. When I first saw this post, I immediately thought, Marcus Allen.

Alstott, Bettis, Okoye. I always wondered what Butkus could have done on the offensive side of the ball. I see him more of a fullback on that side, but I bet he could pound the rock like nobody's business.

I'll add Larry Brown and Roger Craig to your list of near misses. And I may be wrong but wasn't walter peyton pretty unstoppable flying over the top on goal line?

Great list Plinds, but again, how is Marcus Allen not on there? He may not have been the prototypical dive into the line guy, but there was no way to stop him from going over the pile.

Nobody said the Padre yet??? That guy could always find the endzone. From 2 yards out or 50.... He was amazing to watch in his day.

Well, I kind of tried to confine my list to guys that we typically think of as the prototypical short yardage backs... There are plenty of other guys with a nose for the endzone, that I wouldn't really classify as short-yardage kind of guys... The top five would probably be:

1) Marcus Allen
2) Walter Peyton
3) Priest Holmes
4) LaDanian Tomlinson
5) Marshall Faulk

But I don't think any of those guys really fall into the short-yardage category... They are just all-around stud backs...
