Like I said, sports are about winning and the Lions won 8 and 9 games after he retired. They won 5 in his final season. If sports are about making sportscenter, then I concede.
The list is about the greatest athlete, not the greatest athlete on great teams. The dude did things on the field that have never been seen before. He did things no other back could. I think that puts him on the list easily.
