He should be there, he was one of the greatest RB during his time just didn't get the respect because he played in Jacksonville. He came during heyday but they fell off in his third season. He probably would have been a multiple-time Pro Bowler if he was healthy during the whole 1999 season.

He was one crucially strong part of a really good and balanced team. Man, Fred was so RELIABLE. One of those runners whom the opposing defense KNEW when he was getting the ball--and still couldn't stop him.
