4.       Also known as the “A Train”, Mike Alstott dominated the line of scrimmage for the Bucs for 11 seasons (1996-2006) and planted fear in the hearts of opposing defenses throughout the league. Serving as the other half of the “Thunder and Lighting” backfield duo, Alstott rumbled and stumbled downhill on his way to six consecutive Pro Bowl seasons from 1997-2002. He is the franchise’s career TD leader with 58 visits to the house and before retiring due to chronic neck problems, he totaled 5,088 total rushing yards.
