    There is no real debate here, but cowboys fans like to bring it up because they know deep in their hearts that Barry was better.

    Remember, Barry had no offensive line and still would have had more yards than Emmit if he had played 2 more years. Barry show some class by letting the great Walter Paytons record stand for a couple more years before Emmitt sqeaked by it. I will give Emmitt credit for getting a couple of rings with his yards though.

    Thanks for the link Dakid to show me that nice Cowboy Cheerleader in the lower left hand corner cowboy board. :nod:

    Both were great backs. Barry was greater.

    Sanders:
    He reached the 1,000-yard mark in each of his seasons and ran for a career best 2,053 yards in 1997
    .

    Elected to 10 Pro Bowls. Every season of his career.

    Sanders was named first- or second-team All-NFL every year of his career.


    Barry Sanders created everything he got. There was no real passing game to stretch the field out for him. Detroit never had the personnel to help him constantly get to the endzone and he had a crappy line. I would
    have Sanders in his prime over emmit...

    Definitely Barry, but I can't think of a worse waste of my time than going on a Cowboys board to debate it. :ohwell:

    Believe me the wife was initially upset when I put up my Piston Automotion Calendar here in my office, but when I showed her it actually had a schedule of games on it she calmed down:eyebrows:

    Not only did the Lions not have much of an offensive line for Barry, they seldom had a passing attack to keep some of the defenders busy. They could always key on Barry and nobody else made them pay.

    Definitely, Barry was in a class by himself.

    Yup, agreed. Can't see Barry winning this debate on a Cowboys website. Even with the honourary "bone" thrown to us here on a Detroit area site.

    I like to look at the debate this way. What if Emmit played his career as a Lion and Barry was a Cowboy.

    How do you think their careers would have played out. I bet we wouldn`t even be having this discussion.

    Barry Sanders with the OL that Emmit had...........Please..........

    Emmit with the OL Barry had.......................Emmit who???

    Barry Sanders, hands down..........

    E Smith could play for the Pistons. Talk about going to work.
    3 rings, most TDs in a season, Smith smoked him.

    Barry won only one category. Hilite reel. And his O line wasn't that bad.
    Barry would've scored way more TDs if Wayneo let him play at the goal line. I'm sure that sucked some of the life out of barry.

    I think Bobby Ross sucked a lot of the life out of Barry.

    Totally different runners. Smith was straightforward. Barry was sideways, backward and then forward for 20 yards when you thought he might lose six. The guy didn't have too many playoff highlights, though. Having Barry and not building a great team around him is evidence how bad an organization the Lions truly are (were?).

    Emmitt admitted Barry was superior on Quite Frankly.

    Case Closed.

    Barry liked Wayneo and Scott Mitchell...
    One of his "pile cleaners" was gone too. [the left tackle]
    Barry was a little too sensitive about player movement.

    Didn't Emmit play for the Cowboys? How can any of them be any good?

    Maybe I don't understand the question.

    Barry also admits that Jim Brown was better... which is just him being modest.
