          When asked who he thought should have won the heistman trophy in 1956, Coach Majors said, "Jim Brown".

              He was great in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka.

              RIP to the best RB ever, probably.

                  He broke it the 4 years for Ernie Davis for sure. A travesty that I guess needed to happen.

                      He would fit into any era of football and still be the best at it.

                        Just saw him a couple of weeks ago in an under appreciated performance as Fireball on The Running Man with Schwarzenegger.

                          The best RB ever, and it's not really close.
                          It's TIME. The Vols are back.

                            Sometime back in the 60's (the actual date escapes me) I still recall when Jim Brown and the Browns came to RFK stadium and took on the Sonny Jurgenson led Redskins. My favorite player at the time was one of the "Skin's corners named Pat Fisher. Fisher was gamer, taking on the likes of Bob Hayes twice a yr and he usually covered the best opposing WR's. In those days the rules weren't so stringent so he was able to use the tricks of the trade to make up for any advantage the WR had.
                            Back to the game, it was close with Sam Huff and Chris Hanberger doing most of the stopping of Jim Brown's dives and off-tackles. On this one particular play they called a sweep and Brown was able to turn the corner and his corner cruise changed into an impressive full throttle charge towards the "Skins goal line.
                            There was only one Skin's player between Brown and the goal and it was the diminutive Pat Fisher. With Jim Brown barreling towards him at full steam, Fisher sheds the WR and takes aim at Brown. Brown doesn't side step nor juke, he lowers his head and takes aim at Fisher and they collide with Pat Fishers trying to plant his shoulder pad into Jim Browns mid section. I still recall the sounds of the pads popping and I was sitting up in the nose bleeds in the end zone.
                            Bam went the sound with Pat Fishers arms and legs doing all they could do to wrap around the freight train that was Jim Brown going full steam for the score. With his arms and legs still flailing Pat Fisher simply couldn't bring Jim Brown down and he rolled of the hit and was flung to the side as Jim Brown rumbled on for the score.
                            Impressively. Pat Fisher got up and shook it off and continued to play on the next defensive series. Like I said he was a gamer but on that day he was no match for a determined Jim Brown.
                            The Browns won the game and Pat Fisher is still my most favorite pro football player but when it comes to pro running backs my fav's are John Riggins, Jim Brown, and Larry Csonka, the toughest SOB's to carry a football.

                              I read old stories about him in my youth and doctors/trainers saying bruises he incurred during the game would heal up faster on him than other players. I guess he was so muscled,or he was able to avoid direct collisions, maybe they weren't as deep. ??

                                A strange footnote to his amazing career. He is considered to be the best Lacrosse player ever and it's not even close.

                                  I think you might have another RB crossed up with Jim Brown. Pat Fisher didn’t play for Washington until 1968, Brown retired in 1965.

                                      Well, looks like too many moons have passed since my 1st pro football game. It would have had to been the 65 game at RFK and the DB JIm Brown would have run over had to have been the safety Paul Krause. Course it also could've been the corner who I think was Ricky Williams of that I am now unsure. And to add insult to injury he may not have scored on that run but it either set up the score or iced the game. Again to many moons have passed and I definitely prefer the tale where my fav player would have sacrificed life and limb to try and tackle the great Jim Brown, which only now exists in my imagination. So I'll just hang up and listen.

                                        Good story though, I heard it said, Jim Brown was the toughest RB to get on the ground for obvious reasons. Your story reminds me of watching Herschel Walker's first TD run over Bill Bates as I sat there in the South EZ not believing what I just saw.

                                        I remember when Brown was charged with domestic violence in the early 2000's, and instead of taking a 12-month anger management class, he elected to serve jail time, and spent four months of a 6-month sentence in Ventura county jail. He had a lot of violent incidents after football.
