Jim Brown is the consensus pick of most experts as the greatest running back in NFL history. I, myself, never witnessed Brown work his magic on Sundays; for those players, see Vol 1 and 2 of The Great Running Backs. Brown gets one of his own. A remarkable blend of power, speed, desire, and elusiveness was #32.
Sanders and Sayers could both cut full-speed on a dime. Human highlight reels, and 2 of the 4 greatest backs I’ve ever seen. See Vol. 1.
Including the collegiate version of Reggie Bush. Electric, astonishing.
Currently the two finest tight ends in the game, George Kittle and Travis Kelce are truly twin powerhouses that fuel their respective teams.
The remarkable Patrick Mahomes seems to perform well-nigh impossible feats almost routinely. At age 24, he already is poised to become one of the all-time greats. As brilliant as he is on a consistent basis, he’s even better when it matters most. If it has to happen, it happens. A magician, a poet, a winner.

The two greatest running backs I have ever viewed, Earl Campbell and O.J. Simpson. Both combined speed and power with an uncanny, innate sense of how and where to maneuver. Like Larry Bird or Steph Curry in basketball, it was as if they were prescient, seeing how all and everything was developing just a shade before the other players. Or, perhaps, more than a shade.
Joe Montana, arguably the greatest quarterback to ever play the game (certainly Tom Brady and Johnny Unitas are in the conversation) (with apologies to Steve DeBerg), is shown here with footage of one of his greatest feats/moments: The Drive to win Super Bowl XXIII. The legendary Genius, Bill Walsh, was coaching his final game, which upped the ante, even for a championship contest. There was no room for error. With ever-so-calm, surgical precision, and poetic flair, The Great One made it happen, as was seemingly preordained by “Heaven Gods”, as commentator (from the “other” Football) Ray Hudson might proclaim. Announcer Lon Simmons, one of the best, is featured (!).
Other highlights, including The Catch, are also featured.
