Need a lot more context. What are the parameters and factors that contribute to the rankings and also what is the time frame?

1. I can’t imagine a Top 30 RB list, that doesn’t include Steven Jackson, LeSean McCoy, or Eddie George

2. I’m all for giving credit to the older generation, whose stats are not really comparable to the newer guys, but why does Marion Motley get in over Larry Csonka, Gale Sayers, Lenny Moore, Steve Van Buren, and Jim Taylor? I’ve never even heard of Motely who currently ranks #157 in All-Time Rushing Yards.

3. How does Terrell Davis get in the Top Ten? He currently ranks #55 in All-Time Rushing Yards. Out of these 30 RBs, he is ranked 29th, and 1800 yards behind the next guy on this list. I get it that he had a short career that was plagued by injuries, but I don’t understand how that thinking gets him in the Top Ten. He averaged 1087 yards over 7 seasons, as compared to Corey Dillon who average 1124 yards over 10.

I like the idea, but needs more context.
