What Research Found Out On This Very Important Topic By: Chad Wilson @Gridironstuds Please follow me on Twitter
I guess. Lol
Call it whatever you want. You are acting like 500 carries in 4 years in a lot. There are RB's that get around 300-350 carries a season. Is staying healthy not part of being a successful talent at a certain position? Fact of the matter is that we will never know just how good of a talent that Bo "could" have been as a RB because he got injured. It's unfair to Sanders to say that he was a more talented RB based on the limited amount of carries Bo had in his career. Concussions, age, injuries, teammates, etc all contribute to what someone can do.
Barry also wasn't able to split carries with a RB like Marcus Allen. Don't act like that doesn't help your YPC average.
It was in 86 so im not sure if they had laser times then or not. Still very very fast. Then he was 220 pounds
I don't think you know what talent means.

4.12 I just don't believe is correct. I could see a 4.3 but a 4.12? That is just insane.
Did you see the 2nd article that i attached that said Darrell green run a consistent 4.08
How do you know he would have been better than Barry? You can sit here and wax poetical that he would be a better RB than Barry Sanders but he didn't fvcking prove it, period. Barry had better numbers in college than Bo did as well if you don't remember.
No I didn't look at either article. It just seems unfathomable to me.
There have been alot of people to run in the 4.2 range in the last 10 years. Im not gonna say bo is a better running back than sanders but he definitely was a bad bad dude. I think though if you would have put Barry behind the cowboys oline in the mid 90s he would have been the best running back to ever walk the earth. But it never happened so we will never know
Well I have your word vs ESPN and the reports from the NFL combine... forgive me for not taking your word on this.
Anyone know the song at the end of that 30for30?
-I said you acting like we don't know what Bo "can do with the pigskin in his hands" is ridiculous. So, yes, with 500 NFL carries, you acting like Bo's talent-level is some sort of mystery is also ridiculous.
-After a college career and 500+ NFL carries, if you can't determine what kind of talent or how good of a talent someone is, that's more of a RATT-problem.
-You should really re-read my posts more than once -- you continue to prove you're more than a once-over read and post kind of guy. I have already said I have no problem with people thinking Sanders was better. I do laugh when you say, again, on talent alone, that it "isn't even close."
-You still struggle to comprehend this is a talent discussion and not a stat/numbers comparison.

Well if it is unfathomable to you it CAN'T be true.
Amazing logic bro... I like that... going to use it in everyday life.
Alright maybe you have me on that. I've kind of gotten a bit close minded since my back and forth with the Nole fan.
Of course you will admit, since you read and reread all of the posts, that I've been bashed for merely saying that Sanders was a better RB and admitting that Bo was a better overall athlete.
I've never said that Bo was garbage or that he wasn't talented. I've basically only stated that I thought that Barry Sanders was a better RB, and that it "wasn't close". I actually do believe that it wasn't that close personally. We will just have to agree to disagree on that point.
Feel fortunate to have watched his professional career. Talent was off the charts and is second favorite RB of all time. Remember his freak injury and then his comeback with the White Sox. Power was off the charts and god given ability had no peers. Another great 30 for 30.
Bo>>>Deion, like I said 2 favorite RB of all time. No way he had the career Barry had, due to injuries and dividing his time between 2 sports. Different players both 1 in a lifetime players, we were lucky..
Bo Jackson averaged more YPC than Barry sanders and I believe Bo also holds the record for most 80+ yard runs of any RB in history in only 4 years (all while playing baseball professionally), yet it is ridiculous to claim that he could be in the same league as Barry on talent alone? Sounds like a bama fan doesn't want to give an auburn player any credit. Bo absolutely could have been in the same class had he focused solely on football. He had HOF ability in two sports. Definitely the top athlete of modern sports and its a shame he got hurt so early.
Also, because he had a career ending injury, he is not durable anymore. Haha. Injuries can happen to anyone and he had one freak hip injury so he is no longer durable.
This effing thread is about how Bo effing Jackson is still the mother effing best athlete ever.
Oh, and RATT is butthurt.

If Bo had played for Bama, they would not be in this thread saying that crap..
Yes I will go ahead and say it... Had Bo concentrated on football he would be a much better football player than Barry Sanders. He was just that good.
IMO, Bo is the greatest athlete to ever walk this earth.
-Crazy to make the MLB All Star Game and the NFL Pro Bowl in back to back seasons [in terms of 1 calendar year].
-Think about how hard it is to become a professional athlete......
-Then think about how difficult it is to be an All-Star at the professional level.
-Then think about making the All-Star Game in 2 sports, one of which you don't partake in offseason or preseason training
Had he devoted himself fully to Track & Field, he could have qualified in the Olympics in the 100m Dash or the Decathlon.
I remember in the late 1980s/ early 1990s Foot Looker used to have a Celebrity Athlete Foot Locker Slam Dunk Contest. Bo almost broke down the basket. Bo was in it I think 1988 or 1989.

You get out of it what you put into it!
Bo shared carries with 3 other people. Herschel didn't.
