greatest career of all time

Postby DrewBledsoeRox89 » Tue Sep 19, 2006 6:13 pm

So i just wanted to make this topic. OF all NFL players of all time who do you think had the greatest all around career. Your selection should be based off like stats, championships, public appeal, reavnue, and like how key they were to a franchise. or ne other catagories u can think of, but I just don't want it to be like entirly stat based or nuthing.

I was thinking Bret Favre had to be the guy, but I wanna see who you guys think it is. Favre only has had 1 losing season, him and Reggie White revived a dead franchise. He is beloved by Wisconsin and most people who know anything about him think of him as a great person, this includes his aid for katrina (I know people who lived in areas that he himself direcly aided.) He has suffered greatly in his life, but overcome adcersity to still remain a great NFL player. He is top 3 in all the QB stats, he has a ring and he gets paid. 3 time MVP in a row, plus he used to be in a lot of commercials.

All right lets hear what u guys gotta say

Great question. I'd have to say Walter Payton. I dare say, he's the most beloved football player I've ever heard of. The way former and current players speak about him, you'd swear he was Mother Teresa. Just an outstanding human being and easily one of the top three greatest running backs to ever play the game. Capped off his career with a Super Bowl victory and ended his career with the most rushing yards of anyone in NFL history.

Jerry Rice. Leading EVERYTHING WR and 3 rings.

Tom Brady could surpass him if he keeps up his success.

I love Payton, but like besides his great numbers, idk like he didn't save the Bears frahnchise or nething liek Favre or Manning. But I wasn't alive when PAyton was dominating the field, so I don't know how big a star he was like nationwide back then. I live in Chicago and I don't know peple barely ever even talk about sweetness.

I mean people always dissrespecting Payton, for stupid reasons liek not scoring a TD in the super bowl. But there is no questioning Iron man Favre, he is a god. I just hope that this whole INT thing doesn't effect people judging him, I mean that really shouldnt stain his amazing career.

Myself, I'd go for Payton or Montana.

Jerry Rice.

The way he produced consistently through different QBs/teams. Sure he had Montana to start his career. But he continued to produce with Steve Young and then Jeff Garcia. I think he event looked great with Elvis Grbac at the helm of the Niners' offense. Plus the way he lifted Oaklnad's offense in his last few years was quite an accomplishment for an old man.

The come back from a devastating knee injury was also very impressive.

The clutch presence.

What's not to love about the guy!

I love Jerry Rice, but I love how u said he produced with Montana, and then said but even with Steve Young he still profuced. Steve Young is a super bowl champion/hall of famer, plus he won that mascot race last monday night, lol. He's no pushover
