    That's why I put T.O. above Moss, even when things weren't going T.O. way he'd still preform at a stupid level. The issue with Moss was he'd often quit on his team.

    Oh, no doubt he's an incredible all time "holy shit" kind of player. I meant that there were other players who played at a similar very high level for longer.

    You know who we don’t talk about enough when we talk about Tight Ends?

    Travis Kelce. That dude is every bit as crazy as Gronk, both as a blocker and receiver, he just didn’t have Brady throwing him the ball on a Super Bowl team. But now he has Mahomes and now he IS putting up insane Gronk numbers.

    For some reason I remember LaDanian Tomlinson's career being longer than it was but it was only 1 year longer than Barry's, that's weird

    Prestigious Prestigious

    Kellen Winslow would be the best if he played in this era

    Probably feels that way just because I was alive for all of LDT's career

    I love Tomlinson so much.

    I won't put him in the Gronk tier, I can't. Gronk and Kelce are putting up similar performance levels now, but at this point Gronk is also taking hooks on like every single play. He's getting the Watt treatment while putting up those stats.

    Lets Go. Prestigious

    Gronk is a much better blocker than Kelce

    Still though no one was as good as Barry haha. I say Walter Payton and Jim Brown were the only RB who had an argument they were better talent-wise. That’s about it.

    I anticipate you highlighting Emmitt Smith. I love Smith, he’s definitely #4 or #5. But Smith wasn’t quite the power runner that Payton & Brown were, and while he had Barry’s feet & agility, he didn’t have his moves.

    Barry was wildly intelligent with his decisions and how he would plan ahead to dodge people. He could string moves together like no one else.

    I'd put Brown and Payton above Sanders, but after those top three, you could argue about 5 or so other guys. I'd put Smith next for tons of reasons though, no doubt about it.

    We seem to have this discussion every year. Guys, we need a new fucking topic already.

    My favorite thing to come across are people who won't allow Smith in their top five all time running backs and reading their mental gymnastics for not including him. It's hilarious.

    Nope. Prestigious

    This play still fucking ruins me lol like wyd Revis

    Going by the numbers you could easily make the case he's the best RB ever.

    Yeah, you absolutely could and I just looked it up for a refresher:

    3× Super Bowl champion (XXVII, XXVIII, XXX)
    Super Bowl MVP (XXVIII)
    8× Pro Bowl (1990–1995, 1998, 1999)
    4× First-team All-Pro (1992–1995)
    Second-team All-Pro (1991)
    AP NFL Most Valuable Player (1993)
    NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year (1990)
    4× NFL rushing yards leader (1991–1993, 1995)
    4× NFL rushing touchdowns leader (1991–1993, 1995)
    NFL 1990s All-Decade Team

    NFL records
    18,355 rushing yards
    164 rushing touchdowns
    4,409 rushing attempts

    I'm not so much of a homer where he HAS to be your #1 or anything, but saying that he can't be top five because he had a great line for 1/3 of his career or some shit is so stupid to me.

    "I Would Do Anything For Love" Slaps. Supporter

    A lot of people say he's soft. Current and former players. I haven't watched all the film on him or whatnot, but he seems to be able to be taken out of the gameplan if you just get physical with him at the line.

    And he's second behind Rice in career TD's.

    Versus Gronkowski who could probably get chokeslammed at the line, get up, and make the catch

    Gronk definitely isn't soft. He hits players laying on the ground pretty damn hard in the back of the head!

    Gronk doesn't get any credit from me since he's a dirty player and his douchebag bro act is honestly super annoying.
