Barry Sanders vs. Ray Lewis

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on March 27, 2013 – 9:47 pm

The Detroit Lions currently hold the reigning Madden cover champion in All-Pro Calvin Johnson.

Now Lions fans have the opportunity to keep the title in Detroit.

Hall of fame running back Barry Sanders is currently head-to-head with recently-retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in the final field of 16.

Buzz surrounding the vote is alive and well on Twitter, with fans encouraged to vote on ESPN.com.

In response to fan comments, Sanders tweeted, “I am just honored that fans still hold my game in high regard and remember my career…”

Obviously that is a gross understatement and testament to Sanders’ humility.

Current voting runs today through April 3 – Vote NOW!

    Sanders is one class act that men today should follow he will always be the best he kept everyone watching him and his moves no where to go and he came up with 5 to 10 ten more yards.

    Barry Sanders all the way.
    The example on the cover of Madden is protrayed to millions of fans and children. The talent. The gift. The person.
    Barry Sanders hands down.

    Barry Sanders is truly in a class by himself, not only for his achievements, on and off the field, but also for his humility. He’s the best role model the NFL has ever produced. I only hope that others can emulate him.

    Like Ryan said, I will choose Barry over a murderer anytime anywhere. Barry would run circles around Ray lewis all day.

    Barry was and is in a class of his own. He was an unselfish team player who excelled at his position on a team that was deficient in talent and coaching. When he was asked by another “new” coach to become a decoy and not a contributing offensive point producer he politely declined and retired. He thus saved his stellar reputation and health. Lesser men would have taken the money and ended up severely injured like so many other running backs.

    i dont understand why barry is being considered though, he hasnt played in like 10 years. shouldnt they put a current player on there?

    Barry’s the only one who had so many moves in one run that the guy trying to get him fell over backwards.

    Mike, Using that logic, why would they have Joe Montana or Jerry Rice either. The current players can’t possibly match up with Barry Sanders, and some of the other “older” players.
