Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

This is a documentary. Most of the Sanders Highlight compilations I've found on Youtube kind of suck. His long runs are the feature on those compilations and those runs, while great, do a dis-service as to how entertaining he was to watch. He was so unpredictable...the way he'd take what should have been a 6-yard TFL and turn it into a 2-yard gain is what made him so fun to watch. The attached video has some of those highlights. Keep in mind he played for the Lions during the pre-cap era and didn't have much support. Enjoy the linked video. If you've never seen any comprehensive Barry highlights, brace yourself.

Best ever? Debatable. Heck, Barry's own dad thinks he's second behind Jim Brown.

As it pertains to highlights, Barry is in a class all his own IMO.

I remember a NFL coach proclaiming that Sanders was responsible for more groin-pulls in the history of sports.

Barry Sanders, Deon Sanders, there's something to the Sanders name.

And Deion played two sports professionally.

You ought to see his place off of Preston Road near Prosper, Texas. It's huge. I drive by there frequently as I have friends in Celina I visit when I'm in N Texas.

Played baseball in college with 2 guys who grew up in Wichita and played football against Barry Sanders.

They never got a hand on him. His quickness was unreal

When he was a kid growing up he played a ton of 2-hand touch football so the running style he developed was to avoid even being touched by the defense.
