Best in Franchise History

Postby Poobah » Sat May 29, 2004 7:15 pm

Pro Football Weekly recently sifted through the annals of NFL history to develop a list of 5 candidates deemed "the best in the history of the franchise". Apparently you can vote on profootballweekly.com for the player you think is the best of the best. They will do one team a week between June 6 and Jan 15, starting with Arizona and finishing with Washington. The Lions candidates are:

CB Lem Barney
S Jack Christiansen
QB Bobby Layne
RB Barry Sanders
LB Joe Schmidt

I would argue this, but my vote goes to Barry also, so I'm not going to bother.

Barry. It was always a pleasure to watch him run the ball. I also liked Billy Sims in his day ...
