The Best RB in Each NFL Team's History

Emmitt Smith is the NFL's all-time leading rusher.

A few months ago, we looked at the best quarterback in each NFL team's history. Today, we will examine the best running back each franchise ever had.

The player with the most yards on any given team is not automatically the best runner in that franchise's history. Dominance, longevity and contributions to a team's success are all important factors in determining the best running back.

Also keep in mind that we are not looking at a player's entire career in making these judgments, just what he did in the uniform of the team in question. So while Emmitt Smith, over the course of his career, was better than any other running back in the Arizona Cardinals' history, he didn't accomplish much with the Cards, so he is not a candidate for the best running back in that franchise's history.

Feel free to comment on any of these picks, but if you feel differently, please indicate why you believe your candidate is a better choice.
