Could you compare and contrast yourself to Barry Sanders, another back who retired in his prime and was highly respected for his modesty and respect for the game?


Jim Brown May 2012 wrote:
I think Barry Sanders is an unbelievable football player. I don’t know if any of us could say that we were better than Barry, and I don’t think any of us would want to. It’s unnecessary. But he’s also a real fine human being and a friend of mine. His father was a dear friend of mine and used to tease Barry and say, “You’re the third-best back that ever played the game.” His father said, “I’m No. 1, Jim Brown is No. 2 and you’re No. 3.” Barry had to tolerate that conversation, but he took it well. ... Just a fantastic athlete and a great person. A lot of dignity.



I didn't know Barry Sanders' father played football.
