RANKED: The 25 Greatest Running Backs Of All-Time

22. Joe Perry

As part of the iconic ‘Million Dollar Backfield’, Perry relished in being the San Francisco 49ers’ primary offensive threat. Perry was a one-cut and go type of runner. Once he hit the hole and got to the second level, it was virtually impossible to stop him in the open field.

He was known for becoming the first NFL player to rush for at least 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Duly, he retired as the NFL’s All-Time leading rusher (though that mark has since been broken). The three-time First-Team All-Pro was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1969.
