I am seeing a lot of people's "all time" RB lists and none have included Perry. Crazy. When the guy retired he was second on the all time rushing list to Jim Brown. In an era when teams predominantly ran the ball. That's like Chicago Bears fans voting Matt Forte the best RB of all time when Walter Payton is sitting there. I realize he played a long time ago, but the fact that Perry's team records stood for several decades despite all of the talented RBs we have had through the years shows how dominant he was at his position.
Yeah, that's my fault for not including him in the original discussion.
