Football.com Rates Best Fullbacks Of All Time

Earlier in the season, Football.com released their list of the best fullbacks of all time. Larry was very humbled to be included in this list with the likes of Jim Brown, and his long time idol, Bronko Nagurski. The article is a interesting read focussing on the evolution of offenses in the NFL. Fullbacks were once highly utilized as punishing runners as well as vital blockers in the passing and running game.

2014 has shown a glimpse of the return of the punishing backs with players like Marshawn Lynch, Le’Veon Bell, and Eddie Lacey showing great success. We hear a lot about the passing game, but with defenses focussing on the pass, a successful running game is vital to keep the defense honest. We may be a little bias here, but there is nothing better than watching a hard nosed running back shedding tacklers and wearing down a defenses.

If Merriam — or Webster — had to select one all-time NFL player to be listed next to the definition of the word “toughness” in the dictionary, former Miami Dolphins star Larry Csonka would easily get the nod.   – Corbin Smith, Football.com

    When you talk of the greatest fullback, there can only be two names. Larry and Jim Brown. I played with Larry at Syracuse. And in case you forgot, Jim Brown also played at Syracuse.
