by Will BrinsonBarry Sanders is, in my mind, possibly the greatest running back of all time. Certainly there's a case to made against me suggesting that, since I'm under 30 years old and wasn't cognizant of much more than drool for the majority of Walter Payton's prime. But, hey, I saw Emmitt Smith. And Sanders was way better. So it shouldn't be surprising that his son, Barry Sanders, Jr., is pretty decent. Enjoy the touchdown run.
Now, apparently Junior is already bigger than his dad, but I'm not sure that's entirely to his advantage -- after all, Sanders' smallish size, coupled with his shiftiness and power was what made him so dangerous. Still, if J-R can live up to half of what his dad was, we're all in for a treat.
