The Cowboys did a documentary featuring this not that long ago.

Compare their 'age 23' seasons.

Emmitt Smith: 432 touches, 2048 yards, 19 TD's.
Ezekiel Elliott: 381 touches, 2001 yards, 9 TD's.
thought about my top 3 hook-inducing mofos; it's sanders, elway and emmitt.

yeah man emmitt was lightning. my first memory of him is bursting through on thanksgiving day:

i loved watching zeke at ohio st but he's no match for the emmitt

Nov 26 has the most HOFers with five.

Vince Lombardi and Joe Montana share the same birthday.
