Jim Brown coming to speak with 49ers

http://blogs.mercurynews.com/49ers/2009/08/25/49ers-camp-update-glen-coffee-meet-jim-brown/

While I have high regard for Joe and Steve and Jerry, the greatest football player of our era (I never saw Jim Thorpe) is Jim Brown.

His rushing records speak for themselves. Check him out on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6cCXNBeVfc&feature=fvst

He was the best I ever saw.
Didn't that happen today already?? maybe not?

Jim Brown was a great running back. He was also fortunate to play in the NFL in the late 1950's and early 60's. He didn't face the type of monster defenses and freak athletes we have today. In fact, in many of those grainy old school highlite reels he's running over skinny white guys.

Jerry Rice without question has a stronger case for being "greatest player ever" then Brown.

Jerry was the greatest football player ever. i wasnt around back in browns day and im not taking anything from him, the man is a legend, 13 probowls, ten time All-Pro, 3 superbowls, league MVP, Superbowl MVP, named to NFL's All 80's and all 90's teams, owner of nearly every receiving record there is and most of them are by a long shot, his receiving yard record is almost 8000 yards from the nearest guy, Tim Brown. His receptions are almost 500 from the second place guy, marvin harrison. his 197 TD receptions are 65 TD's ahead of T.O. in second place, his 208 total TD's are 33 ahead of emmit smith in second place... these are amazing accomplishments. Jerry Rice, the GOAT. period
Good to see Jim Brown talking to our guys. He was great!
Common knowledge = Jim Brown is a habitual wife beater.

Well, after having watched those highlights, I have to say, I'm NEVER listening to any old pompus fool who talks about form tackling and that younger players these days don't do it. That highlight film was a display of the worst tackling in the world. These guys were crossing their forearms trying to knock him down from the side and some barely made contact.

Hey old farts, tackling is actually better NOW.

Also, Jim Brown looked like he was playing against Pop Warner players. I still must give props to him because even the monster player at the park who was 2 years older than everyone couldn't do some of that stuff.

However, I want to say Barry is the best RB ever, but I still wonder how Bo Jackson would have done if he was 100% committed to the NFL and never got hurt. Adrian Peterson may have a chance but defenses are just to big and fast these days.

True, Bo would've possibly been the greatest football player ever.

No disrespect to old people. Then I think...I'm 32.

I don't know if that's the case regarding Jackson. He may well have been but I doubt it. Remember he did have that freak break that didn't heal well( essentially what Hearst went through afterward) and there have been plenty of two sport guys that didn't suffer from playing 2 sports. Deion being one of them. Honestly I think that BJ was roiding. Remember how he would break his bat over his knee when he whiffed on strikeouts? That was just not a normal action by any serious Baseball slugger that I can recall before OR since. And what I think caused him to have that freak accident with Bosworth who is a known user as well.
