OK my anti-barry rant.

I know that some people are stupid witness any wresting comment- even if you put in a disclaimer that yes I know its fake you will still get bobarded with comments saying hey don;t you know it's fake?

That being said- Barry Sanders is one of the greatest of all time in running exept for one MAJOR thing

Red Zone running...

think about it. It's fourth and 1, 4 seconds left- you have 2 running backs - who do you give the ball too...

Barry or Emmitt? - Emmitt- no matter what people say about his O-line being the basis for his greatness I can block for himand he can still get in the endzone.
Barry or Bettis? - Same thing.
Barry or Okoye? - Same thing.
Barry or Curtis Martin? Same thing.
Barry or Dickerson? - DO you see a pattern?

Point being- If I am a def co- and I have to face Barry on a 1st and 10 from his 20 I am scared - 2nd and 5 at the 40? Scared- 3rd and 1- not scared 4th and 1 at the 1? I am more worried about a QB sneak from Peete than I am Barry.
All you people that saw Detroit play know this Barry let off some spectacular runs- almost like and Anti-Martin but Barry could not or would not lower his should and get you the extra yard or that 1st down- he would just as soon backtrack and scoot back 2 yards to try to get the 3 instead of getting the 2 and then BAM the extra one- more than likely he's going out of bounds.

Not saying Barry is not great- I cannot ever say that- but If I and picking my top 5 back over the past 20 years- and I have pick #6- I'm getting one of my personal top 5 because someone is picking Barry and he has got to worry about what to do about 4th and 1-

I just have to stop him on 1st and 10. . . .

Top 5- since people keep taking my people

Faulk
E. Smith
Dickerson
Thurman Thomas
and
Dickerson-

I don;t like Dickerson- never have but if it comes down between Bettis and Dickerson, or Eddie George or Chris Warren- a better back than Alexander, to me by the way.
