I love that video. Barry is the greatest running back of all time, hands down. Barry would have broken the all time yardage record no problem had he not decided to retire so early, but I cant blame him, after all he lived with the lions organization for 10 years, more than enough for anyone. I have never seen moves like those, his combination of power and agility will never be matched, never.

I highly doubt that. Plus he wont be on the Lion. I highly doubt Darren Sproels will ever be a starting RB let alone be the next Barry. Darren Sproels will never be able to hold Barry's jock.

If Reggie Bush's highlight reels don't remind you of Barry Sanders, then you must be crazy. It was like watching a reincarnation of a man that isn't even dead.

Except it was in college. Reggie Bush will not be as good as Barry. He will never gain rushing yards like Barry.

watching those clips bring back so many memories and tears of joy... those were the good old days when us lions fans did not care about all the losses that were continuously coming in because we were able to watch GREATNESS in Sanders every sunday. He never took one play off always was amazing and will be forever the greatest lion ever.

OH YEAH......bush is no barry sanders there will never ever be anyone like him again PERIOD

Bush cannot break arm tackles like Barry. In fact, no one ever got a clean hit on Barry because he was so evasive. You watch his videos, you see all pros like Derrick Brooks and Ray lewis completely getting burnt by him. Barry was way more powerful than Bush. Barry is the greatest RB of all time, hands down, too bad he rarely had a team around him.

I dont remember who it was, but he made a safety tear his ACL when he tried to tackle Barry. I dont think there will be many running backs with thoes types of moves anytime soon.
