2100846, Eric Dickerson Appreciation Post

In honor of Adrian Peterson NOT breaking his record I'd like to give a shoutout to the dude who's name doesn't come up often enough in the GOAT discussions. Maybe it's because his career flamed out somewhat early and contract disputes and injuries throughout his career hindered him somewhat but he's still right there with the all-time greats. As great a season as AD had it still wasn't quite as good as ED's. ED not only has the greatest rushing season ever, he also has 3 of the top 20 rushing seasons in NFL history. Dickerson is still the fastest player to 10,000 yards for a career in 91 games, nobody will probably ever touch that either. He also has the single game playoff rushing record.
