Not only is he the best NFL athlete to ever wear the number 22, he's also the best professional athlete ever to wear the number 22. What can you say about Emmitt? He is simply one of the best players ever to grace an NFL gridiron. Certainly one of the best NFL running backs ever.
Although sixteen players were taken ahead of Smith in the 1990 NFL draft, he went on to become the NFL's all-time leading rusher, and a three-time Super Bowl Champion. Oh yeah, he also won "Dancing With The Stars!" What are his other accomplishments?
- 18,355 career rushing yards
- 164 career rushing TDs
- NFL MVP in 1993
- 8-time Pro Bowler
- Super Bowl XXVIII MVP
- 78 100-plus-yard rushing games
- 4-time NFL season rushing champ
- 3-time NFL season TD champ
Did you know.......Emmitt, while enduring a separated shoulder during the game, once rushed for 229 yards against the Giants?
