Barry Sanders

Sanders, who was chosen to the Pro Bowl for all of their 10 NFL seasons with the Detroit Lions, feels that the way to the Hall of Fame is very tough for running backs of today than even those from only a decade before. The league hasn’t just become more of a passing game league, but the improved use of shared backfields indicates that the workhorse running back who would obtain 25 carries for each game is long left. Now, several teams utilize two, in case not three, backs with a marked back that at the present times couldn’t get half the carries for their team in the game.

For example, in the year 1998, final year of Sanders in the league, he accounted for 76% of rushing offense of his team and 77% of their team's carries. Those are percentages of a past era and without as several carries, the current running back couldn’t be capable to put up the great career numbers which can lead to a Canton nod.

It would be tough, probably very tough. But in case you look at men like Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch, Jamaal Charles – the previous some of years they have put up similar numbers to Hall of Fame backs, declared by Sanders on Yahoo! Sports. You cannot check as many running backs in the Hall but there would be a few.

At the present, Sanders keeps busy as the national diplomat for Gridiron Glory: The Greatest of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the biggest exhibition of traveling in the Hall of Fame’s history. Fittingly, the show has started at The Henry Ford, the famous museum situated in Dearborn, Mich.
