Zeke not even in the same league as Emmit. Having watched both players, there is no comparison.

No shade on Zeke !!!!!! Look the dude played Balls out for the Dallas Cowboys.

Well that’s the difference between wanting to be a multiple time champion and wanting to be a celebrity.

Elliott won in college. Being a pro was the after party.

No? HOF talent and he ain’t going.

Emmitt's the greatest RB of all-time, and the ONLY reason people hesitate to call him that is because he was a Cowboy.

His resume speaks for itself. No other RB even comes close to what #22 accomplished.
Yards, TDs, 100 yard games, total carries.

Not just regular season. Emmitt has all time numbers in the playoffs.

Rice and Emmitt are the only non kickers to score 1000+ points.

Emmitt could block and catch too.

Emmitt was great and I love him, but he had the Great Wall to run behind. That's way oversimplified and doesn't cover his receptions, or blocking, or toughness. Just saying that he owes a lot to years of top NFL OL.

Like Nate Newton said “ they weren’t all pro linemen until Emmitt got there”
Exactly, he said they were a bunch on nobodies.
On the other hand, Barry Sanders already had 2 all-pro OL there when he was drafted, and they drafted another OL that became all-pro. And did not need Barry to help him achieve that.

Emmitt's OL were a bunch of misfits and hodgepodge types. I think Stepnoski was the highest pick in the 4th round. And Larry Allen in the 2nd round later on.
