Previously I asked about your top three all-time wide receivers in the CFL, and now I'm going to ask for your opinions on the top three all-time running backs. I know that with only 3 downs to make a first down versus 4 downs in the NFL, this puts a premium on passing and mobile quarterbacks in the CFL, but I know there are several all-time great running backs even so.
In the NFL, the all-time rushing leader is Emmitt Smith of the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals, second would be Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears, and third Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions. In my opinion the greatest running back in the NFL would be Jim Brown of the Cleveland Browns because he played in the NFL for 10 years and led the league in rushing for all 10 years he played, and then he retired. Not a bad record, 10 years 10 rushing titles.
In the CFL, I came up with two all-time great running backs, and they would be George Reed of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and Leo Lewis of the Winnipeg Blue bombers. I'd like to hear your opinions on your top three running backs of all-time in the CFL.
