Barry Sanders

he was ok I guess, they need to make a video of all the 3 yard loss's he had though.

I didn't like him because you always wore that Lions jacket and it stunk.

That move he put on (the Bills, I think it was?) at the goal line... that spin... fuckin' sick. Plain sick. He was easily one of the greatest.

Still. Sweetness was a bigger threat.

hahaha, you got that right jamez.

The sick part is, for how many 3-yard loses he had, he still ended up with a crap load of career yardage.

Too bad he played for such a crap team, that is one man who deserved to be a SB champ (is sometimes not mentioned with the best because he never won the big one, like Marino)

Yeah but if it weren't for those 3 yard losses and the risk that came with them there wouldn't have been those hundreds of 50 yard runs.

Barry Sanders in my eye's was hands down the greatest running back who ever played the game. Not onyl that but he was the most exciting running backs to watch. The thing I loved the most about Sanders was how humble he was.

I think this can lead us into our next topic. Is Terrell Davis deserving of enshrinment into the HOF.

Barry was exciting, but he didn't have "hundreds of fifty yard runs". I wouldn't be able to put up with all the 2,3 and 4 yard loss's just to see a great run every once in a while. I don't mean any disrespect to your favorite guy, but I'm not a big Barry fan. To me, he is like the John Daly of running backs, drive for show, putt for dough.

Barry used to spray Pam on his jersey anyway.

He only averaged 5 yards a carry for his career, looks like he had more positive then negative

okay hundreds was an overstatement but he does hold the record for most 50 yard + TD's with 15
