Default A day in the life.....Barry Sanders

First time i've watched this. What a kid, what a player. Todays players have 1/3 the talent and 100 times the ego.

Thank you for who you were and remain to be today.

He may not have the records that E Smith has, but I think a very strong case can be made that he is the best to ever play the position. So much fun to watch, and never was a showboat.

Barry Sanders also retired very young at which reflected on his career totals.

Nfc North had some entertaining players in that era. My favorite players to watch regardless of position are/were Brett Favre, Randy Moss, and Barry Sanders, with Calvin Johnson getting an honorable mention

Emmitt was a product of the Hershel Walker trade. Without that he wouldn't have had nearly the numbers he did and it shows in his rushing numbers after free agency went into effect.


Barry was a magician for sure and a class act all the way. I might put him at #5 on my list. I put Bo Jackson, Walter Peyton, Earl Cambell, and Jim Brown ahead of him. Maybe Eric Dickerson as well.

He was so awesome. Too bad the Lions couldn’t surround him with a super bowl team. If anyone deserves one, it was Barry Sanders

Pffffttt.
Barry was the second best RB of all time.
Barry didn't NEED an OL like Emmitt Smith did.
There are plenty of reasons for making that statement but it's not worth making a case about, here.

G.o.a.T. remains Walter "Sweetness" Payton.
Hated the team (Packers fan), but LOVED the player.
Walter, in CHI, never had an NFL-caliber OL until 1984 (9 seasons).
Name a single other RB with TEN seasons over 1,200 yards - you can't.
Most were lucky to have 5, 6, or even 7 (Jim Brown).
Barry and Smith had 9 each.
He did it all on his own, somewhat like Barry did, but even better and more directly north and south.
