Wasn't better than Sanders


Was better than Sanders

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).

Best part of the song is that it has nothing to do with Detroit other than the repeated statement "Welcome to Detroit City". Seriously...Check out the lyrics.

Wonder how many of those plays were brought back cause of holding penalties or illegal block in the back.

I never saw Jim Brown play, but Barry was a special back. Special in a good and bad way. He had all the highlight moves and burst more long runs out of nothing availible than anybody else. So all folks around the country saw all the amazing things he could do.

But he wasn't a consistent perfomer. If you needed that toughest yard or two, the Lions, rightfully, pulled Barry and put in Vardell or Schesinger or whoever was FB flavor of the year. Barry was a gambler and a dancer and was tackled for no gain or a loss way, way, way to frequently.

His yards were earned like this:
8, 2, 5, 28, -4, -2, 16, 0, -1, 6, 48

Barry never got hurt, he played every game every year but the one season he held out on a contract dispute. And he was amazing to behold. Too bad the Lions never had a QB worth anything when he was there. Don't give me Scott Mitchell's FF numbers, Mitchell was an anti-Elway 4th quarter disaster who's numbers reflected the talent around him.

Emmitt's the greatest ever, but that's another long, frustrating thread altogether.
