Emmit shouldn't even be on the list but oh well....post up guys
Why is Maurice Clarett on the list?
For me it was between Jim Brown and Barry Sanders. Both quit way before their time and both could have done sooooo much more. Only because Sanders could cut on a dime and was spectacular to watch, I'd give it to him.
Brown was dominant....tough call.
3 way tie and emmit at zero...I'm happy
My favorite is Marshall Faulk.
The Greatest is Eirc Dickerson.

Barry Sanders was the best running back I ever saw. Heck, the best football player I ever saw. Dude averaged 5 yards a carry and he never had anybody spectacular with him on offense. I have trouble even remember who the Quarterbacks and Wide Receivers are that played with him.
We'll let's see
rodney peete,scott mitchell,charlie batch,andre ware
herman moore,brett perriman,germane crowell,johnny morton, brian stablein (UGHH)
UGHH is right! :icon_eek:
Where's the Bus on that list? Actually he belongs on a list of the greats, but I wouldn't of picked him. It was tough between Payton and Sanders, but I had to go with Barry Sanders, the man was magical when he touched the ball.

Respectfully, I stick with what I posted earlier. Barry Sanders is the best football player I ever saw.
Ever see Jerry Rice, or did you only watch Lions games?
Jerry Rice - 2nd place, lol.
Note I never said that Barry Sanders was the best player you ever saw or anyone else ever saw. The best player I ever saw. The guy did amazing things with the ball in his hands, put up outstanding numbers without much of a supporting cast, and would have retired with many more records had he not retired so early.
I have nothing against Emmitt... one of the all-time greats, no question.
What about this killer?
BTW, this is the best running back I have ever seen and there are plenty of busted up corners, LB and safeties that would agree:
He had Lomas Brown for many of those years. He also had Herman Moore, Chris Speilman, Kevin Glover. The Lions has some talent. A great player makes the people around them better.
