NFL RB QUiZ
Can you name some of the best running backs in the NFL?
Are you able to smell out the ‘Sweetness‘, taste the ‘Juice‘, or will you be sucking up ‘Diesel‘?
Get 20/20 or get run over by the ‘Bus‘.
The answers to the quiz are at the end of video.
Who would be my top running back of all time?
Not much time to think on this one.
It would have to be Walter Payton.
Sure, he’s a Chicago Bear, I have a bias to them, & he was one of my all time heroes growing up.
He’s still the best.
Walter was called sweetness not only for his fancy moves on the field, but of his charisma, charm and integrity off the field.
I also grew up hating Emmitt Smith.
Only because my friend John Prpic was a Cowboys fan, and I loud bulwark during the heyday of Troy & the boys.
He was darn good though.
‘Catch 22’ could cut through a defence like Christmas paper and not leave any blood.
That Cowboys team was a solid one.
Diesel was crazy. I remember watching him in the 80s’ with my dad, & he was enthralled with how fierce Riggins was. Riggins played like he was on meth & enjoyed it. He beat up other teams, gashed yards & enjoyed it. Later on, he also delved into media, which was equally awesome to watch him try to act, and not like it was on a substance.
No personalities like that these days.
Everybody knows Bo.
Bo blew up my childhood more than when I created mustard gas when I was 10.
Watching him dominate in 2 sports was a revelation of potential.
Bo knew and did it all.
He was black Santa, that killed it in every sport.
When I’m drunk I don’t call my exes, I watch old video of Bo Jackson running up the wall to catch a baseball.
Say what you will about OJ, murdering his wife, being a dick, fathering a Kardashian..he actually played football. And like, good.
Juice gave Buffalo hope to a town that was only known for massacring, frying & marinating chickens for their non-flight ability.
That’s a lot of hope.
Jim Brown was a bad ass-mofo.
Not only could NO ONE stop him on the field, he was cool off the field as well.
Brown beat up other teams with his punishing assault on their D line, putting the fear of injury in many a man who needed a smoke during the turnovers.
Number 32 was also a great actor and mentor as well as an inspiration to African American artists & athletes.
How many can you get right on this tough quiz?
I would be truly impressed if you could get 20/20 on the first go.
