A Video Tribute: The 13 Best NFL Backs of the Last 25 Years

Forget those prima donna quarterbacks, give me a good tailback any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I love seeing a guy that can make the opposition look silly. I'm enamored of the north-south runners in particular because they don't mind going straight up the gut and taking all comers as they make their way to the promised land.

In honor of the Detroit Lions having the first pick in today's draft, I have made Barry Sanders my cover man.

Here's my criteria: He was good at running the ball. He's no longer playing the game but played between 1984-2009.

That's it.

I will miss a few, no doubt, but the nature of a list pretty well establishes that from the get-go.

Let's get it started.
