There are elusive backs and then there is Barry Sanders. No one has the combination of quickness, speed and instincts that the longtime Detriot Lion had. It's that combination coupled with his determination that made him unstoppable, no matter who was in front of him.

Ray Lewis is great, but if he met prime Sanders in the open field, he would look just as silly as every other defender who tried to stop Big Bad Barry.

Barry Sanders had the moves, but Ray Lewis brought the wood. Lewis was a physical specimen on the field, but he also paired that with high football IQ and instincts that helped him bring down anyone and everyone who tried to challenge him.

If it came down to Ray Lewis vs. Barry Sanders, people should be betting the farm on the legendary Baltimore Raven linebacker.
