Joe Bryant--Kobe Bryant

Archie Manning--Peyton Manning

See how comparisons can be twisted to fit your opinion?

Right.

We shouldn't forget Joe Bryant's accomplishments with the Boston Frenzy in the ABA or Archie Manning's 67.1 career passer rating.

But I'm just showing comparisons to twist my opinion, right?

I think I've seen you post stuff like this before. You really enjoy your fallacies.

Right.
He has great speed and seems to be quite elusive. But, he also has not been challenged yet. That is not his fault, but the lack of competition. I want to see what he does against people of equal talent. His dad, has to be without a doubt in my mind, the greatest runningback I have ever seen. So, my memories of his father's runs are still vivid in my mind. Granted, time might have made me glorify these memories even more, but nonethless, Barry Sanders Sr. moved in a way that has not been matched. His son runs more north and south, Barry went in all directions, even backwards, to get down field.

Agreed. Barry is #1 in my book.

He did go backwards in the NFL but have you seen Barry Sr. HighSchool highlights? They aren't too far off from his son. At that level, there is no need to bounce around when you are playing at a much higher level of speed.

What's crazy was that Sr. wasn't "good enough" to start right away in college.

That's not fair to the mother. You both are taking 50% of the equation out.

Yao Ming Dad = tall athlete
Yao Ming Mom = tall athlete

Yao Ming Dad --->>O Yao Ming Mom = tall athlete

Brittany Spear + whatever his name is = good chance of f**ked up kids.

I thought Jarrett Payton was going to be a decent pro but alas... I think Sanders Jr can do just fine if people aren't expecting him to be just like his father.

If I thought the gene that included cooking and cleaning was relevant, I would have mentioned it.
