Left too early, stayed too long

Ok, slow day here in Niner world. Feel free to add your players to the list.

Emmit Smith - stayed too long. Staying just showed his true mediocrity as a back, and that it was his offensive line that carried him.

Brett Favre - stayed too long. Tarnished his career, pissed off even GB fans.

Barry Sanders - left way too early.

Tiki Barber - BOTH left too early. Left 1 year prior to Giants winning Superbowl.
stayed too long - IF he returns, as he is claiming.

One of the first guys on this list should probably be Jim Brown...left far too early.
"true mediocrity"

Oh dear.
Robert Smith RB for the Vikings left too early



and sadly Jerry Rice stayed too long. (didnt like seeing him in the seahawks and broncos uniforms, and especially hated seeing him in the Raider uniform)

If you actually believe that, then you need to look at little further into what he did for that franchise.

Well while I do not agree that Smith was a mediocre back, I will agree that his offensive line is what got him to the Hall of Fame.
