After completing just his second year in the NFL, it still gives Washington Redskins fans incredible heartburn to watch replays of Marcus Allen take the hand off, go left, stop on a dime, reverse field, and take the ball 74 yards for a touchdown in Super Bowl XVIII. There was really nothing, as a running back, that Allen wasn’t good at. He was the first player in NFL history to gain more than 10,000 rushing yards and 5,000 receiving yards during his career. Despite being a tall, gliding runner, he was considered one of the greatest goal line and short-yard runners of his generation. The fact that Allen was able to play for 16 seasons at a high level in the NFL was remarkable in and of itself, let alone the fact that he scored 11 touchdowns in his final year in the league (1997). The six-time Pro Bowl selection led the NFL in rushing touchdowns twice, and won the NFL’s MVP and Offensive Player of the Year award in 1985.
