Barry Sanders deserve some recognition, I've never seen a guy run like this man did.

:hilarious: :hilarious: Just between you, me and the fencepost, this is what I know about Jim Brown

and I love football history, for example Payton came in 4th for the Heisman, many cited it was because of his race and others wsaid it was because he went to too small of a school.

Barry Sanders, IMO, could of broke teh rushing record and Emitt would have finished a distant second! When you look at the team the Sanders played on during his career it wasn't really the best and things he was able to accomplish, especially when the defenses knew they were going to get a heavy dose of Sanders... truly amazzing :slap: ...it's just to bad he ended his career early!

I completely agree with you and you are right. The Lions suck and have always sucked they won the championship back in the 50's before there was a superbowl. I heard that the real reason Sanders left was because the Lions would not let him ever leave. When I first heard this (on the local sports radio channels in Lansing, MI) I thought that was strange because I thought a player could pretty much leave when they wanted to, can't they?

How can you answer this question? Could you go wrong with Walter Payton, Jim Brown, Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith? All four of these RB's were special players and dominated their respective eras. I would be happy with any of these four on my team.

I say in 5-7 years will be adding LaDanian Tomlinson in this conversation as well.

So far as pure moves and refusal to be tackled I'd go with Barry Sanders. If he would have had Emmitt Smith's O-line, he would have had the record by 5000 yards. One of my favorites who should get more respect and consideration than he does is Eric Dickerson. He could flat out fly! The younger members won't remember watching him, but in his prime, he was much better than L Tomlinson. On any play he could go all the way because he had the top gear that very few backs have. Also, he played against the real "LT," which made the carries more difficult! We cannot forget Bo Jackson either - without his hip injury, he very well may have reached the top of the rushing list. Oh well, these picks are guys who had the best pure talent in my opinion - to each his own. Troy

Jim Brown dominated his era like Bill Russell did in basketball with the Celtics.
Both players retired when they were still at the top of their games. Jim Brown retired because he got bored with the game. He also played when there were only 12 games in a season! If you ever have a chance to watch him play (old footage) he was very special! He had the rarest of talent as he was a power runner with breakaway speed! I truly believe that had he played another 4 years they might still be chasing his record. He could break 4 or 5 tackles and then run away from defenders! :hail: Jim Brown
