Maybe I am a little biased, but, not really, but, how can Walter Payton NOT be in a top 5?

So 4 of my top 5 are similar to most everyone's.

Sweetness
Barry
Emmitt
Jim Brown
Tony Dorsett

Now I will defend my choice of the original TD. First and ONLY man to win the Heisman and the National Championship one year and then win ROY and the Super Bowl the next. He is in the top 10 for career rushing yards. He holds the record for longest scoring run in NFL history(it can never be broken only tied) 99 yards. He also made that run with Dallas only having 10 players on the field while Minnesota had 11.

I'm gonna assume it's just bias. Maybe he hates the Bears? Course, I think it's odd that Emmitt isn't on everyone's list, so...

I don't know how I feel about Peterson being on these lists. Over Simpson, Sayers, Smith, Jim Brown?! Really?
