Similar to the thread I started the other day for WR, here is a new one focused on RB. To recap, there have been many threads pimping PLAYER X as a future HOF candidate.There have been 40 players who predominantly have played RB that have been inducted to date. Historically, here's how many RB that played even a single year in a particular decade who have been voted in. Note that it is possible that the same RB could apper in 3 different decades.1911-20: 41921-30: 91931-40:91941-50: 121951-60: 151961-70: 131971-80: 91981-90: 81991-2000: 32001-Present: None eligibleThe most RB inducted from one decade was 9 (since the league merger). So let's set the bar at 10 RB per decade. So to participate, you need to pick 10 guys from each decade to put on the "in" list. Given that there are already 3 guys in from the 90's, you can only pick 7 more. If a player played in both decades, he has to appear on both lists if you select him. I'm not saying all these guys are great options, but I figured the broader the list the better. With some guys still playing, it's not inconceivable that they could still accrue some gawdy numbers. And obviously some of the new breed of RB have a long way to go . . .Here are the candidates from the 1990s (pick up to 7):Eric Dickerson* (already inducted)Barry Sanders* (already inducted)Marcus Allen* (already inducted)Emmitt SmithCurtis MartinJerome BettisMarshall FaulkThurman ThomasRicky WattersEddie GeorgeCorey DillonOttis AndersonEdgerrin JamesTiki BarberTerry AllenFred TaylorWarrick DunnHerschel WalkerRoger CraigPriest HolmesShaun AlexanderTerrell DavisAhman GreenRicky WilliamsJamal LewisHere are the candidates (so far) from the 2000s (pick up to 10):Emmitt SmithCurtis MartinJerome BettisMarshall FaulkRicky WattersEddie GeorgeCorey DillonEdgerrin JamesTiki BarberFred TaylorWarrick DunnPriest HolmesShaun AlexanderTerrell DavisAhman GreenLaDainian TomlinsonRicky WilliamsJamal LewisLarry JohnsonDeuce McAllisterClinton PortisReggie BushSteven JacksonWillis McGaheeAs for the 2000s, of course we still have yet to play half the decade . . .I do find it interesting that there are more RB inducted from the 40s, 50s, and 60s than there have been from themore current era of football. That jumps out at me because there were half as many teams at the time and numbers over the past 35 years have consistently gone up.
