Earl Campbell and Bettis are the two greatest of all time when it comes to this -- Bettis' incredible power to go along with insane speed and balance for his size just made him an unbelievable player, and a hall of famer for sure.
He was great to watch. You couldn't help but say "wow" much of the time.

Pound for Pound Jim Brown. However, Earl Campbell would be up there also. Unfortunately for Earl, he stayed to long and will pay for it the rest of his life. The
Oilers offense was about 75% Earl Campbell.

Greg Jones..... he's not as well known..... but he blows people up.
I really don't agree with people who say Bettis. For me he was more big than powerful. He occasionally had some good shots on people, but not consistently enough. I would even say he was a bit soft, considering his size. IMO

I'll throw out Jamal Anderson as a guy that I hated for the Falcons.
