Barry Sanders, RB Detroit Lions. I know and understand why he left but the NFL rushing record should be his, he deserved it. He was a great shape as well and could have played for another 3 or 4 years. One of the most electrifying players to step out onto the field. And one of the most humble, a rarity in the NFL.
I'm with you on this one, the man had bionic ankles!! You look at his highlight reels and he made cuts that just dont seem humanly possible. He was truely a joy to watch! I couldnt believe the Lions handled the situation the way they did, was a shame for him to retire still in his prime.
