04) Roger Craig

Roger Craig, the first player to rush 1,000 yards both rushing and receiving, took the time to thank me for my appreciative email to this future Pro Football HOFer.

My next response was from one of the greatest all-purpose players of all-time, Roger Craig. All of you new fans are familiar with Christian McCaffrey’s recent record breaking in 2019 on an all-purpose level, as well as Marshall Faulk being the most famous to break rushing and receiving records. Roger was the first player (and most underrated of the three) in NFL history to advance 1,000 yards both rushing and receiving, as well as the first player to make the Pro Bowl as both a running back and a fullback.

Roger has been very appreciative of me as a fan, as you can see in this email, not to mention because he was the first NFL legend to respond to me via email back in 2015, and I will always be grateful to him as well.

I would like to invite all of you to visit Roger’s web site at http://www.rogercraig33.com/
