See this the sh*t i am talking about right here... Once a player retires people quickly get amnesia about a player and only see highlights and that gets imprinted in their brains... the fact you would call AP Mr. Fumblerusky and not say the same for Barry is exactly how i know you didn't watch Barry during that time... And you damn sure didn't listen to sports talk about him... Barry put the ball on the ground alot his first few years and actually continued to do it throughout his career...

Through their first 5 seasons in 73 games Barry Fumbled 28 times compared to AP 22 times... But yet you call AP Fumblerusky... AP already has had 2 seasons with less than 2 fumbles... Barry in his whole career only had 1 season under 2 fumbles... Barry was great and was a highlight machine... But he also had more negative plays than anybody... Barry was rarely in between... He either got you a big run or a bad loss... He didn't consistently get you 4 and 5 yard gains... You can blame his O-line for that but people forget Derrick Moore who took over for Barry had 56 carries for 259 yards averaging 4.6 yards per carry in the 3 games he started for Barry following his injury in 1993... So their O-line could not have been as bad as people think if the backup can come in and average almost 5 yards a carry as well...

AP out of all RB's has less negative plays than any back the last 5 years... Chris Johnson is a modern day Barry Sanders... A player who spends alot of time making players miss in the backfield and who gets criticized for not just hitting the hole sometimes instead of dancing in the backfield when they lose yards... These are the things i remember about Barry Sanders watching him growing up... Great exciting back who struggled in short yardage and goal line situations... But his big play ability became all we know today after he retired... Jim Brown is still the GOAT back of all time... Obviously i didn't get to see him play but there were no knocks on Brown's game
The fumblerusky comment was directed at that p!ss poor performance in that NFC Game

But I'll just leave this here

One of the game’s most electrifying runners, Barry Sanders rushed for more than 1,000 yards in each of his 10 seasons with the Detroit Lions (1989-1998). He was the first running back ever to do so. The 1988 Heisman Trophy winner was also just the third person to gain more than 2,000 yards in a season, a feat he accomplished in 1997.

Sanders, after forgoing his senior season at Oklahoma State, made his pro debut just three days after signing with the Lions, who had made him their first-round pick and the third overall pick in the 1989 draft. He absolutely dazzled a Pontiac Silverdome crowd when he dashed for an 18-yard gain on his first carry as an NFL running back. But that was just the beginning. His 1,470 yards rushing that season, a-then Lions record, fell just 10 yards short of the league’s best for the year.

In 1990, Sanders, with 1,304 yards rushing, topped all ground gainers, something he would do again in 1994 (1,883 yards) and in 1996 (1,553 yards). His 44 receptions for 283 yards in 1994 gave him a combined 2,166 yards from scrimmage. The most impressive feat of his remarkable career, however, came in 1997, when he rushed for a league-best 2,053 yards and gained another 305 yards on 33 catches for an amazing 2,358 combined yards gained. That year, Sanders, who was named league Most Valuable Player, gained more than 100 yards rushing in an NFL record 14 consecutive regular season games.

Though not big by most standards, Sanders capitalized on his size by running low to the ground making him less of a target for would-be tacklers. His elusiveness and ability to reverse direction seemingly at will, often left defensive players grasping at air. “He makes you miss so bad, you kind of look up in the stands and wonder if anybody’s looking at you,” Atlanta Falcons cornerback D.J. Johnson once remarked. “You’ve got 60,000 people in there and you wonder if anyone saw you miss that tackle.”

A first- or second-team All-Pro ten consecutive seasons, Sanders became the first NFL running back to record five 1,500-yard rushing seasons, in addition to being the only back to do so in four consecutive seasons (1994-1997).

Selected to play in the Pro Bowl each of his 10 NFL seasons, Sanders held nearly every Lions’ rushing record and numerous all-time NFL records, at the time of his retirement.



When AP can do the above, come holla at me. Barry ran for 1500+ near the end of his career. And he had the ability to stay healthy.

Some of yall are going WAY overboard wit this. Nobody is saying AD will have a better career yet, but we are looking at how he sizes up to one of the greatest at this point in his young career. So far, he's going at a great pace. You're comparing the end of Barry's career to the beginning of AD's career. That ain't a fair comparison. Let AD finish out his career before you start that conversation.
