Sorry, Kevin, I'm voting AP. He handled reconstructive knee surgery, lets see how he handles the Madden jinx... Tongue

Well... Sanders did lose his ball sack and walk away from the game early. Just think of how far out of the stratosphere he could have put the rushing record. Flapper

If he had not been playing for the Detroit (perennial losers) Lions I doubt he would have walked away when he did.

Alright hoppy, you wanna go there???

Barry Sanders LEFT the game because the LOVE of the game LEFT him! He didn't stick around for records, which is something Emmitt Smith can't say. Then again, perhaps he had a love of the game for records. Barry wanted to play in a Super Bowl and realized it wouldn't happen with the Lions. SO rather than be a STAT WHORE (nerdmann, looking at you), he walked away from the game while he was still considered one of the best in the business.

You rather a guy stick around one, two, or even three more years when they no longer have the passion to play the game? When their love of the game has dissolved? He did the right thing, but in my opinion, did it wrong. I also fully appreciate how he didn't want the attention, the questions and everything else that comes with being the greatest runner of all time calling it quits just a mere 1,5xx yards from the coveted all time rushing record.

If the NFL had more players like Barry Sanders, it would be a better NFL. Lets Box!

Walter Payton could have done the same.. yet he stuck it out and guess what.. was rewarded for his loyalty with a SB ring. [grin1]

yep. 4 times. twice in the finals. I tried to vote in the finals more than once when I was at the office but their site would not let me. I did it from the house since it has a different ip

Yes, please. Vote for Barry.

I'm not a Madden jinx theorist.. but I'm not willing to put it to the test (although many think Megatron snapped the curse last year).

That said, gbguy made me LOL with his defense of AP vs. the curse.

I'm excited! The outcome of this vote determines if I buy the Madden game or not. :)
