JHJ is a Hall-of-Famer. In one of those great Saturday night absolute brawls they used to play in the old Cleveland Mausoleum, Oct 10, 1964, 35-year-old JHJ outgained Jim Brown 200 yards to 59 yards. I remember seeing those games on TV. JHJ was a Steeler from 1960 to 65. Maybe a bit old for some on the board. He would be in the top few on my list.

    I would have included both John Henry johnson and Dick Hoak in my list but the OP's premise was that no RB who played before the 70s should be included so I left them out.

    I did so for three reasons:

    1.) I just don't care about sports that came at a time before I was even born.

    2.) The game was so different with the sport before the 1970s.

    3.) I can't have opinions on players that I have never even seen highlights from, not to mention, not having ever seen them play. I just can't form an opinion on players I have never seen.
