Factorback is the annoying ESPN analyst Merril Hoge's definition of a running back or tailback. He preaches in his loud annoying voice about a "SEAL HERE" AND A "SEAL HERE", and how the factorback is very dynamic. He usually sounds more clueless than Rasheed Wallace at a spelling bee.
Merril Hoge: Adrian Peterson is a FACTOR BACK! I studied him on film for 22.5 hours and he is just absolutely dynamic. Look at this play, POWER FORMATION, RUNNING THE FOOTBALL, he gets a SEAL here, and a SEAL here, and breaks off a nice run. Adrian Peterson is a factorback.
