The fact that Emmitt was able to play running back in the NFL for 14 years alone almost makes him an all time back, but this man balled out like few others during his time on the field. He's the current holder for the two most coveted running back records, rushing yards and touchdowns, and was a huge part of the Cowboys' epic '90s trio of Aikman, Irvin, and Smith. We're still trying to determine if he gets brownie points for winning DWTS, the man doesn't know how to lose but also rocked stuff like this.
