rushing records (answered)

Postby Arlo » Mon May 19, 2003 8:41 am

When Emmitt Smith became the new all-time career rushing leader last season, he broke Walter Payton's mark. Payton, in turn, had broken Jim Brown's record. But who were the last three players before Brown to hold the career rushing crown?

Van Buren is the 1 of 3. I'm sure.

Before that, it was a guy that played right after WWII. When ex-GIs were restocking the league. He was spotted playing in a pick-up game while in the service and I can NOT remember his name. He was nicknamed "Rocket" or "Jet" or something.
He played forever.
Dang.

All right, Arlo, check back in and let me know if I got the 2nd or the 3rd right. If not, I'll say stuff like Red Grange, Bronko Nagurski, Joe Guyon, or Blood McNally instead of Feathers. I still like Perry as a guess....

As the Wease said, C-Hawk did in fact have Van Buren right. Poobah added Perry, and Joe completed it with Hinkle. Nice one! ;-D
