Rice is still the best WR, his longevity is what puts him on another level. Megatron has a ways to go to catch him

AP is the best running back to play the game imo. Dude is unreal. 2100 yards less than a year after an ACL tear? Doesnt even make sense

Difficult to compare players from different generations.

Megatron is a beast for sure, but in this league a defender can't topuch a WR without getting flagged. Jerry Rice played with a completely different set of rules.

Eric Dickerson is an enigma. Difficult to figure out. He had 12 seasons and only played a full 16 games in 5 of those seasons, 3 of those within his first 5 years in the league. His 2105 yard season was his second year in the league and aside from 2 other seasons when he rushed for over 1600 and 1800 yards, the remainder of his career was plagued by injuries and rather unimpressive stats.

As great as he was, I'd take a RB who could string together a healthy 5-6 seasons and get between 700-1000 yards in each of those over an Eric Dickerson, who seemingly had huge flashes of brilliance but they were often separated by lengthy periods of just being ordinary.

I still have to go with Rice. If he were in today's NFL, what would his numbers be?

AP might be the GOAT, but again, in Dickerson's generation, every defense targeted the run. Today every defense targets the pass.

I would say AP for sure, based on his toughness and consistency.

Simple No to Johnson

Absolute yes for Peterson.
