I just wanted to share this with all you guys... IMO, this guy was the greatest RB I have ever seen... What a shame it was having his career cut short.

Take a look at the run that starts around the 1:37 mark... Watch as he breaks a few would be arm tackles, hurdles a teammate, a literally runs through Dunger's last line of defense...

Too bad there was no HD back then.. Not the greatest quality of videos, but an awesome video nonetheless...

Hope you all enjoy.

I hope you especially appreciate this video... You were just a little tyke when Bo was playing... It's a damn shame you didn't get to see his greatness... I wish Directv had existed back then.

Bo was one of my all time favorite Raider backs,,him and Marcus. I felt betrayed when Marcus went to KC,,although we know Al was the reason for that one.

I used to collect NFL and NBA cards and got rid off most of them,,but still have my "Bo Knows" card. It was actually pulled because it's a picture of Bo in pads with a baseball bat over his shoulder and the NFL didn't want reference to him and his other sport on their cards.

In a word electrifying. He was the best back I've ever seen. If it weren't for injuries cutting his career too short, He would be considered the greatest ever

Without question... He was the greatest back I have ever seen as well, and it's not even close IMHO...

Bo Jackson- what an amazing back, and what an amazing athlete, period. He did pretty decent in baseball too. Didn't hit for great average but his power and speed were well-utilized. I can't really think of a better dual-sport athlete of all time than Bo Jackson- can you guys?
