Most exciting player.


I know, how about Barry Sanders, Devin Hester? Well, because of "The Kansas Comet" we knew what we could see before Sanders/Hester.

While in HS his 24-11 long jump led the nation (HS) and his older bro Roger a world class sprinter once beating the great Bob Hayes.

Most exciting player nobody here has ever heard of.....


Help recruit Bob Hayes to Florida A&M, Hayes a running back.

Swap Elway with Brees.
Brees has 547 td passes/77, 416 yards

Elway has 300/51, 474

I know different era but, that really is a pretty dramatic difference and Brees will be adding to it.

Elways comp% not all that and neither is his passer rating. 56.9/79.9

Brees 67.6/98.4

Elway with 9 pro bowls and never All Pro
Brees 14 pro bowls and one All Pro

Who can do cornerbacks?

1.Deion Sanders

Coaches

1.Bill Belichick

What could have been

Stone Johnson was a running back at Grambling and a world record 200m Olympic sprinter, he would take 5th. That was in 1960 the year the old AFL kicked off. The Dallas Texans (Chiefs to be) drafted these speedster (9.3 100) in his second preseason game he injured his neck....................died.

Elway was more than just a pocket passer though, he was one of, if not the most versatile athletes ever at the QB position.

He also had more post-season success despite helming some rather mediocre-to-poor teams in the 80s.

Back in the 60's 70's Fran Tarkenton rushed for 3674 yards scoring 32 times, Elway in his career.....3407/33. And Tarkenton has 42 mor passing TD's.

Yes Elway was good that is why I ranked him but do think he belongs where I have him.

Kellen Winslow is a huge omission at tight end.

Sterling sharpe because I'm a homer and believe hed be in the top 3 had he stayed healthy and played with prime favre. Love me some sterling.

Made up for by having don hutson at 2. A forgotten player, hard to compare eras when you go back further than the 80's due to the size and speed on the field from then on. Anyway his numbers from the 40's would be pro bowl season numbers. Then to top it all off the guy has 40 some career picks playing defense.

To comment further on the point above Jim browns crazy dominance was due in large part to the fact he had the physical tools to be a man in today's game. Truly a man playing children, his highlight clips are brutal to watch

Even today (and I've posted this multiple times in the past) I believe a case can be still be made for Unitas as the GOAT QB. Aside from Brady, Johnny U remains the ONLY QB to take his team all the way over a span of more than ten seasons, he won the MVP Award in 1957, and he took the Colts to the 1971 AFC Title Game. Sammy Baugh was the first passer to generate over 20,000 yards (crushing Arnie Herber's record), then Unitas broke 30,000 and 40,000 yards passing before anyone else (his one milestone achievement realized in San Diego while mentoring Dan Fouts was passing 40,000 yards, though John didn't give a crap about records). Brees shows what a pure dropback QB of Johnny's height would have done to today's NFL. From 1969 to 1971 (after a crippling arm injury he never recovered from during the 1968 preseason), Unitas carried those Colts teams to winning campaigns on the force of his personality. ATG TE John Mackey said it was like being in a huddle with God.

I rate Hutson over Rice, as great as Jerry was. Rice was fortunate in being a rookie in a defending SB Champion. Don did play offense and defense, but still holds several offensive records over 70 years after his retirement. He had great passers in Arnie Herber and Cecil Isbell for his first two championships, but remained such a deadly menace in 1944 that the Packers were able to run over the Giants for the title (despite missing HOFer Tony Canadeo to WW II -brilliant Giant HC Steve Owen devised the relay strategy which blanked out Hutson on defense but that freed Green Bay's running game for the win - Hutson was single handedly responsible for Curly Lambeau keeping pace with George Halas for all time wins until after Don retired).

OOPs! How did I forget Winslow, yep....DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to fix that and will.

I see Sterling in the top 5 if he;d stayed upright, his story a real bummer.

No player not even Brown was at dominant as Don Hutson was in his era. He was catching three times more passes than the number two guys,

Speaking of Jim Brown at 6-2 230 he could play today, no five yards a carry however, he was totally amazing,

I thought of Unitas, but did get too caught up in just stats, all those I did rank but Graham did out stat him. But he does need to be there, so will dump Tarkenton can't dump Elway.

Don Hutson was incredible, he is STILL among the all leaders in TD;s with a 100. And just being in a realistic bedate vs Rice says it all, since nobody else is close. Don't know much about Herber or Isbell. I do see where you're at putting Hutson above Rice, but........can't do it.

Fact or fiction?

Don Hutson ran track and played baseball. So he has a ball game and track meet right there on that Alabama campus. So he leaves the baseball diamond walks over changes shoes and wins the 100 yard dash dressed in his baseball uni. Then changes shows walks back to the baseball game.
