Wow. I didn't realize Rathman never made the Pro-Bowl. He was the best pure fullback the league. He didn't just block, he could carry the football in short yardage situations and give you a guaranteed two yards when you needed them, but he could also break some bigger gains. He could catch the ball as well as any fullback, and run after the catch. He hit harder while carrying a football then any other player I can remember. The sports announcers used to comment on how you could hear his hits all the way up in the booth. I can't remember a single time when he was knocked backwards, he was always moving forward and always lower then the defender.
