Skin fans rejoice! A touch of your glory days and the tough nosed I don't give a fuck attitude having running back John Riggins. Riggins wasn't beating you with speed, he was going right at you and both sides knew it. He was a TD machine for the Redskins and the Jets throughout his career and most notably won a Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP after his epic fourth quarter run against the Dolphins. The Diesel also rocked a fro and a mohawk before pretty much everybody. #coolpointsawarded
