I agree. Jim Brown was good because he was bigger then everbody. Barry just out moved people. Walter Paytons #2 on my list.
Jim Brown wasn't just a good RB - he was the best football player of all time. He had power, speed, agility, and a nasty attitude. Anybody who wouldn't choose him to build a team around is targeting second place.
As good as he was at football, it was Jim Brown's second sport. He was an unbelievable lacrosse player. Imagine you are on a lacrosse field and a man, 6'2" weighing 232 lbs is bearing down on you with world class speed carrying a club. SHHHEEEEEEIT. Right this way, Mr Brown.
No Emmitt Smith anywhere? he is the all time leading rusher.
But as a lifelong Cowboy fan I must admit he had some pretty darn good lines in his time there. To go by stats he's one of, if not, the best. Going off talent prolly Barry Sanders. He would have done amazing things if he ran behind Dallas' line instead of Detroits
Yeah, I think great college backs don't always transition into great pros. But the offensive line can only open up holes for your first few yards, then that is when the good ones shine. I think Barry Sanders had some soild o-linemen in college, but it was what he could do to a defender five yards+ downfield that made him a great one.
