greatest career of all time

Ok this might be a stretch, but I think Paul Hornung had the greatest carrear of all time. He was instrumental in four championship wins. He was extremely popular during his carrear, and his image transcended football more than any of his contemporaries. Even today, he can still be considered of the most recognizible figures in the Packers franchise (perhaps second only to Lombardi).

Admittedly, he doesn't have great stats, but in terms of being "the man" I think he is the greatest ever.

He is such a beast!!! He could literally play every position- Oh and by the way, Brett Farve is a pretty big face of the organization also.

I'm amazed that no one has mentioned Iron Mike Ditka. He's won as a player and as a coach. Hall of Fame player, he even is immortalized in SNL sketches.

P.S. Not a Bears fan.

If, and only if, LT wins a Super Bowl this year, he may end up with the greatest career of all-time. I realize it's a hot topic to say that LT is one of the best ever since he's destroying the NFL record for TD's and will very likely break Emmitt's record for career rushing TD's, but if the guy gets a ring and stays healthy for a few more years, my God he'll put up amazing careers numbers.

Best QB Of All Time is Joe Montana with no question.
Best RB Of All Time is Walter Payton with no question.

I have to say its between these 2 players and I personally can't decide, but if LdT wins a ring this year and stays health, like someone said previously, he can easily be the best NFL Player in History.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Love the guy, a class act but fell short of the truly elite RB's of all time.

May as well just add Jerry Rice as best WR of all time also.



Also LDT cannot and should not be considered best of all-time, he's never rushed for 2000 yards, and Chris Johnson did alot of things last year LDT was never able to do. He was a model of consistency, a TD machine, but best player in history regardless of position? I'd have a huge problem with that. Jerry Rice dominated everything WR period, and for a much longer period.

That post was 3 and a half years ago after LdT was running for 20 TDs a year. How can you possibly argue against me 3 and a half years later after we just clearly saw the tremendous decline in stats. If you were looking for me to say "Oh, I'm wrong", here ya go, I'm wrong.
