Barry Sanders Turns 50 - 50 Great Runs

Post by Moethebartender » Mon Jul 16, 2018 11:48 pm




I was fortunate enough to have season tickets for most of his career, and for a long time, he was the only reason to go to the games. The game where he blew past 2k yards was one of the most intense games I've ever been to - Reggie Brown went down in that game with a career ending (and life threatening) injury. I've never heard a stadium get that loud, nor can I ever remember 80,311 people making so little noise, when Reggie went down - back before cell phones; no one knew for a bit who was down or what was wrong. Unless I missed it somehow, they don't have one of his most impressive runs in the video above. A lot of great runs though. The Lions running game has been an abortion since he retired.

For a second I thought the thread was titled “Bernie Sanders”.

I'm pretty sure Bernie has been their starting RB since Barry called it quits. It certainly looks that way most Sundays.

He was the best running back since OJ Simpson, maybe even better.

He's black, so he's someone you'd be afraid of. Shouldn't you fuck off to some sort of sexpat forum, Hairy? Maybe Stickman would be more your speed?

He was unbelievable to watch.
This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

Yeah, he was saddled with a mostly mediocre to shit O line and some truly awful QB's. Rodney Peete and Andre Ware? Ugh. A lot of Lions fans are bitter over the way he wrapped it up. I'm shocked he stayed as long as he did. They went after him for his signing bonus. Barry was pissed about that for years. He finally came back to work for the Lions last year as a sort of brand ambassador or some such shit. If he had played on the teams Emmitt Smith got to play for, he would have owned every record in the book.
