He is yes and let me explain why. Whilst there have been no doubt better RBs than Hearst I think few have had his heart. What's more he was a tough, physical back that had that very rare great technical ability. He reminds me of the sort of player we used to have during the glory years. No disrespect to Gore but I'm not sure he was the WCO type back that I grew up with. Hearst for me was the embodiment of this.
As for his anti-gay comments. No question. Not required and I felt he looked very silly for it. Frankly all that matters is the football.
