Without the hip hop junk rap music to listen to that usually accompanies these videos! Chuck Foreman. Enjoy!

Great vid.

Foreman was one heck of a runner that's for sure.

I also like the vintage highlight music in the video (same stuff they used to use in those old NFL Films reels).

Killer stuff.

Nice! I didn't realize Foreman had THOSE moves.. I knew he was great, but I envisioned him being more of a put your head down and run you over RB than breaking your ankle RB. o.O

That was great. Thanks. I wish they would do one of Fran and the purple people eaters.

Great video! Does someone want to remind me how we didn't win the Super Bowl with him and the Purple People Eaters? *sigh* :sad:

I'll never forget him.
Most under-rated running back ever.
Man he was fun to watch. And a great person too.
God bless Chuck Foreman.

Thanks for the video. Brings back great memories. An RB with vision and moves, gotta like it.

That's a great video..

Let's hope Chester Taylor can do that!

I love it when a running back just keeps his legs churning no matter how many people are grabbing onto him, instead of just falling down as soon as anyone makes contact with him. **cough cough michael bennet,

Look at the one on his website. 3 minutes and 5 seconds long.

You got one too?!! I love my Chuck Foreman throwback. The video was awesome. Brings back soooo many memories.

But great video. Makes you really miss Foreman, just a little bit more.

Good god that was awesome, brings back some great childhood memories!!! Watchin our Vikes of those years dominate everyone,(except in the super bowls :sad: ). I cant wait till we dominate again, I think we are on our way to being a dominate team again, dont think it can last as long as it did in the 70s, cause of free agency. Its hard to believe its been 30 years, but DAMN we were awesome!!!!!!!!! Go Vikes :cheers:

Thanks for the links to both videos! I was pretty surprised in the first video to only see one of Foreman's patented "spin moves", but the video on Jackyl's site was loaded with them.

Foreman wasn't the fastest guy in the world, but he was "shifty". He was easily the best RB the Vikings had ever had up through that point in their history.

What I would have liked to see a little more of in either highlight film was his amazing pass catching ability. I recall quite a few nifty one-handed grabs he made.

Ditto...what moves, strength, balance, agility, power, speed. I forgot what a great receiver he was. And that spin move was unreal. He'll probably say otherwise, but I don't ever remember seeing someone get a good solid hit on him.
