Holy **** at Larry Allen benching 692 pounds. I knew lineman were strong, but damn.

yourfavestoner 09-03-2010 10:04 PM

****, series like this make me wish I had NFLN so badly.

Complex 09-03-2010 10:14 PM

I don't like when they name people that played in the 30's(when ever Mel hein played) or people that played before 1967, before the 1st real superbowl

Coming up with a top 100 list is harder than you think. Those early players pioneered the game, and I'd rather see them mentioned than some good-but-not-great guy from a later era just because they're trying to fill spots out.

Why? They had an impact on the game as well.

Do you mind PM-ing me a link?

niel89 09-04-2010 03:15 AM

Im loving this series. I get to see the awesome of recent players and learn about some of the pioneers of the game. I like how they have a different presenter for each guy.

tjsunstein 09-04-2010 03:23 AM

Larry Allen literally threw linebackers across the field. It was awesome.

I didn't have it before, having it now, I don't think I can ever go back. It's a god send.

I don't even watch espn anymore. I just turn on the tv and go straight to NFL network.

If you have an android phone, you can stream nfl network on the nfl mobile app.

bigbluedefense 09-04-2010 06:19 AM

Michael Strahan is awesome. I love the guy. Him and Reggie White played the run better than any DE I've ever seen.

You just didn't run at Michael Strahan. He was the man.

If Larry Allen is #95, there better not be any guards currently playing on that list. Not even Faneca.

wonderbredd24 09-07-2010 08:55 PM

ruh roh... Troy Aikman is gonna be higher on the list than Steve Young

Brent 09-07-2010 08:56 PM

Jerry Rice has to be #1.

Um, what?

Jim Brown.

I'll listen to an argument for Sammy Baugh, but that's as far as it goes.

terribletowel39 09-07-2010 09:05 PM

I think Jim Brown will say Barry Sanders. What then??

Steve Young being lower than Troy Aikman causes me to lose faith in this Greatest 100 players...

Steve Young be lower than Troy Aikman causes me to believe this Greatest 100 players is being selected by Corky from Life goes On.
