This is one of the seminal debates in pro football history. Forget the greats like Jim Brown and Walter Payton for a second. Granted, they were lions of the game, but this is between Smith and Sanders. I'll take Barry Sanders any day. This guy is the epitome of class, never celebrated touchdowns, always handed the ball to the ref and went right on playing. No drama, all juke. This guy was nuts.
well I was gonna photoshop her shoulders and head on Ron Jeremy's body, but Im afraid to google images of Ron Jeremy.-tanankaskier
The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms!
this is the wrong crowd to be asking football questions too. most kids here hate on football because of the equipment and the fact that it's boring to watch. there are a lot of patriots fans too... and you know what they say about patriots fans....
yeah emmit smith was more consistent and played for a lot longer but barry sanders played for the detroit fucking lions and in his prime he was way better than emmit smith ever was at any point in his career
no but sanders for sure, i dont know too much about "old" football, seeing how no one in my family watches football cept me, and i only started watching it four years ago, but im learning!!!!
anyways the GREAT Marvin Harrison is leaving the COLTS!!!!!! im kinda sad, but numbers dont lie, well in this case if you were looking at his salary you would think he is the greatest reciever in the league right now.... but hes only caught 80 passes in the last TWO seasons.... C'mon Albert Haynesworth!!!!!!!! though that wont happen....

sorry patriots fans... but the rivalry does continue on into the offseason...
I've only really had the pleasure of watching Emmit Smith play extensively, and to me he is the model for what you look for in an every-down back. Someone who can take a beating, get you 100 yards a game, block, catch balls out of the backfield and score touchdowns. a true bell-cow back.
look at the talent they had around them....cowboys opponents had to respect michael irving and troy aikmen. lions opponents could put 9 or 10 guys in the box and sanders still averaged almost a full yard per carry than smith. put sanders on that cowboys team...wow that woulda been scary. imagine sanders playing on a team where he didnt have to carry the ball 30 times a game for them to have a chance, imagine him playing against defenses scared of the pass too...dude woulda killed it. thats the reason he left, the lions NEVER tried to give him help, they never had a good QB while he was there. yeah, herman moore was one of the best recievers of the time, but he was a possesion reciever who caught 8 yard first downs after sanders ran for 7 on first then the QB got sacked for 5 on 2nd...
"Fuck the bullshit, THIS IS IT!"
Sanders ALL DAY LONG!!! Only runningback I've ever liked. Most classy, humble player in the history. Handed the ball right to the ref after each score, never ran his mouth, was always gracious. Was never a pussy like LT. Sanders killed it in a shorter career than Smith. Plus, Sanders played for the Lions, probably the worst team in the history of the game.
Do you have any idea what would happen to paper if you put it in a furnace? you would RUIN it!
