Here are some of the top players we think of when we think of NFL GOATS.
Jim Brown was an unstoppable beast. Not only did he crush everyone he ran into during the late 50s and 60s, he was also a badass mofo. Brown was intimidating on the field, as his running power was so strong, NFL weaklings of the era struggled to contain him.
Brown would be nightmare for the League this days, as he was always vocal about the calamity of events that were happening around him.
Whether it was segregation, the Vietnam War, or economic disparity-Brown always had an opinion.
Heck of an athlete and not a bad actor as well!
‘Sweetness’ was not only one of the toughest, most fluid runners in the NFL, he was also a remarkably humble man as well. Payton was an iconic Bear, who was nearly unstoppable on the field. Despite the fact that he could easily rush a 100 yard game every week, he didn’t trash talk, didn’t gloat, didn’t rub success in others faces. A truly class act.
Could there be a more iconic QB that Montana? He won so many awards, that many are now named after him. One of the most solid QBs in the SuperBowl, he was nearly perfect in several big games, and was a terror in the fourth quarter. If you have never watched any of his games, go back and watch them!
Another RB who could be considered the ‘classiest’ guy in the NFL. Sanders played with a quiet intensity that was terrifying. He could easily gash oppositions for tonnes of yards, yet he too has one of the most humble players on the planet. He retired before than he really had to, and when Barry talked, the world listened. Always tough to try to make a career in Detroit, but he never turned his back on the city, and gave them everything he had.
