    Go ahead and rank them here...I probably have left someone off the list, but feel free to include them in the ranks. This is pretty close poll I think. We've had a lot of very good to great elusive runners, but nobody like a Barry Sanders. Many damn good ones tho'.

  3. Vince is darn good at sidestepping and juking guys, but i dont think that hes got the COD skills that Pacman does, ive never seen anyone be able to do anything like that EVER!

    Billy was clearly the most elusive in my view.

    I was so excited when Mel Gray joined the team, but he didn't produce for us anything like he did when he was at Detroit.

    I'd rank top 3 as:

    Billy
    Pac Man
    Mel Gray.

    Carl Roaches! :ha: You know you're a geek for this franchise when you remember Carl Roaches.

    How come Carl's sidekick Willie Tullis got no love? :))

    White Shoes got my vote.

    One player that should be on that list... is Gary Brown. He probably has one of the greatest, if not the greatest highlite films of any Oiler ( argument Campbell ). Another player to consider is Allen Pickett.

    this guy never even made the team (iirc)
    I just remember a pre-season game vs. Green Bay where Ronald McClendon had the Packers running around in circles. I recall everyone on our sidelines trippin in awe of this guy - they just couldn't catch him... I'm surprised we didn't keep him

    I agree 100% with this.

    Ernest and Derrick were almost carbon copies of each other. But Ernest was also extremely TOUGH. For a little guy, he had no fear going over the middle and often paid the price for such.

    Since I have been following the team ('78). I have never seen a more elusive player in an Oilers/Titan uni than Pac Man Jones.
