Not sure anymore how "best" is measured, but the most talented ever was Charlie Garner
Whew. That boy had some serious shake, bake, and then just hit ya. Definitely up there. JUCO.

The hardest all out running player ever. Well, I've got to at least share if not defer that title to John Kelly. That guy despised going down.

Had a fun debate with some guys at work a while back....

Name a better Offense/Defense combo in NFL history to come from the same school.

Peyton/Reggie.

Brady/Woodson?
Grange/Butkus?
OJ/Lott?

Hubert Simpson ahead of Johnnie Jones? No Travis Henry? Ok, to each his own.
Hubert got booted from the team early, but from a sheer talent standpoint he was a beast and more than deserving of top six ! Kinda hard to leave Johnnie Jones out just like it's hard to leave out Stanley Morgan, Tony Thompson, Travis Stephens, Travis Henry or James Stewart, but you gotta draw the line somewhere. A lot of good backs have rolled thru here and a lot could be interchangeable to the list or not, pretty much splitting hairs.

Chuck Webb is unquestionably my top choice. After him there are several deserving backs that could find themselves in a top 5 argument, but for me, Webb was the absolute total package. He had it all....vision, balance, lateral quickness, burst, speed and power.
I agree.. other than Lewis, Webb had it all!! Damn knee injuries!

Sure, but you could find example from plenty of other QBs who had better games.. a game from a year you have fond memories of doesn't make Tony a better QB than a guy who has exponentially more yards, touchdowns, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, or any other measurement of how good a QB is.

Wasn't he also using and selling cocaine as well? lol
Just trust some of us older vol fans!!! Robinson had it all!!!! The cocaine jab was not necessary, only used to try and prove a point that you are incorrect about..
