Sanders couldn't block better than either, and couldn't catch passes better than either.
Although Sanders and Brown had very different running styles, their careers were actually quite similar. Both dominated defenses when they played, and both retired in their primes. Although Barry's last season wasn't anything remarkable, he was 1 year removed from one of the greatest seasons in NFL history. I just think he was a better pure RB than Payton. (Don't get me wrong, they are the three greatest RBs of all time, and all three deserve credit).
