Although I'm not a Raider fan, I'd have to say Bo Jackson. He was a great running back who's NFL career was ended very quickly after an injury. He also played baseball for the KC Royals.

Bo knows sports!

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.

This was the one that immediately came to mind, it does suck that Detroit refused to deal him or surround him with a supporting cast but he was amazing. Its basically the same thing Cincy is doing with Carson Palmer this year but he won't be missed as much. If I think back to players who had careers ended due to injury, we can go way back to Sandy Koufax who retired at 31 after one of the best pitching seasons ever (27-9 1.73 era) and I agree when I think of how big a Ken Griffey Jr fan I was growing up in wishing he would have stayed healthy all these years. It would have been nice if players such as Michael Jordan, Ted Williams and Mario Lemieux didn't have gaps in their playing careers either

Barry Sanders for sure, and of course Bobby Ore!!

Prime Time Deion Sanders. The guy hit a home run in the MLB and scored an NFL touchdown in the same week. He once played a Football game and then turned around and played an MLB game, THAT NIGHT!! And he was gooooood. He even became a media sensation and released a shitty album.

He had his haters but damn if he wasn't exciting.


I was on of those haters. I only liked him,when he was on the best team in sports ever,the Dallas cowboys,but he was all flash and nothing more. He was always afraid to get hit.

Barry Sanders. He was still the best when he retired. That's rare.

On the other hand, I hope Favre stays retired.



MikeB predicts that the PS3 will sell about 140 million units by the end of 2016 and triple the amount of 360s in the long run.

I still remember how he willed the Wings to the cup on one knee...an amazing performance (even though he did knock out my Nucks...Cloutier...)

But Yzerman played for like 75 years, or did it just seem like it?  :p

Seriously though, great player.  My buddy Jonathan Toews reminds me of him.
