Lyle Spencer: Bo Jackson's brief career has lasting legacy

#34 Bo Jackson, RB, Oakland Raiders - Unbelievable talent, in both football and baseball.

Greatest athlete of all time! Bo Jackson, RB, Oakland Raiders - Unbelievable talent, in both football and baseball.

Bo Jackson ... I'd say the best NFL running back of all time. Had he not been injured, he would have put up some prolific numbers. Only RB in history to have two TD runs of 90 or more yards. Mixture of speed and strength. Add to that his baseball career ... man, what an athlete. Also, was the best video game running back of all time ... in the Techmo Bowl game on the first Playstation.
