Where do Tomlinson and Allen stand?
By Bill Williamson
Who is the best running back in NFL history?
How about the AFC West?
ESPN’s SportsNation has a ranking poll with 15 of the greatest running backs of all time. The poll is in conjunction with the retirement of LaDainian Tomlinson. He hung ‘em up Monday after re-signing with the Chargers. Tomlinson starred for the Chargers from 2001-09.
Other than Tomlinson, the other running back on the list who spent the majority or his entire career in the AFC West is Marcus Allen, who starred for the Raiders and then finished his career with the Chiefs.
Where do you rank Tomlinson and Allen? Rank them and then explain your reason why in the comment section below.
