whoa, hey, just a little obstacle course fun, no need to throw the Sweetness card.
we will take any excuse to post clips o' chicago's 34. is kinda funny that in 2016, payton would not have been anywhere near a first round draft pick in spite o' the fact that one famous nfl scout once observed that along with anthony munoz and john elway, payton were the only perfect college football players he had ever witnessed. ran ~ a 4.6 40. seemed faster 'cause o' incredible vision, balance and explosiveness, but he didn't have top-end speed. regardless, is our pick for best all-time rb. not just 'cause he were a fantastic runner (would actually choose jim brown or barry sanders as pure runners before payton... maybe gale sayers too ) but as a complete back, we don't believe we has seen anybody in the same class.
is an anecdote that john mckay, the former bucs and usc coach, showed his tampa bay squad film o' THE perfect play-- were a block by payton followed by a 3 yd pass reception. made 'em watch it over and over.
lambert is actually the guy we modeled our own playstyle after even though we played safety and not mlb. intimidation and intelligence. in spite o' the fact that lambert were not the most physical gifted player, he always maximized his opportunities to make a play by being in the correct spot to do so. lambert played smart. 'course once he had a chance to make a play, he punished opponents, and then he talked trash... talked lots.
regardless, once football season starts, we can't enjoy a "little obstacle course." we already admitted it ain't rational, but our contact sport bias is at its height in september.
HA! Good Fun!
