Jerry Jones: Emmitt Smith is the greatest running back of all-time


Todd Archer – The Dallas Morning News


With 13,855 yards, Emmitt Smith is the NFL’s all-time leading rusher but there is a debate as to where he ranks among the game’s greatest rushers.


Owner and general manager Jerry Jones might be a little biased, but he was asked if Smith was the greatest.


“Well, I’m not into subjective comparisons so I really would go to the statistics and go to the championships and the actual big games,” Jones said. “I’d go to all the things you should look at with a running back. You might get a little subjective at other positions but at running back you really can add it up and look at the impact. I don’t know of any back that contributed to big games and championships any more than he did.”


So is he the greatest?


“Yes,” Jones said.
