  1. You didn’t mention the greatest after-30 runner of all-time, John Riggins. He had more rushing yards and twice as many TDs after he turned 30, not to mention an MVP award and a Super Bowl MVP (in separate seasons). He’s probably the only running back who is in the HOF based on what he did *after* he turned 30.

    What Riggins, Anderson, and Allen all have in common is a reduced workload in the years before they turned thirty. Riggins retired at 31 before returning. Anderson and Allen both got relegated to part time duty.
