    Sorry, but Emmitt Smith's entire mentality is exactly why more teams weren't championship level. Too many me, myself and I players. All "I" wanted was for "me." All Emmitt wanted, admittedly so, was to be the leading rusher of all time. Who cares. Screw the team concept, screw playing for a unified cause F-I-R-S-T and F-O-R-E-M-O-S-T - "I" wanted to be the leading rusher of all time. That Kobe Bryant attitude of putting self and accolade before team is selfish and destructive for a team concept where teams win championships. And despite whether or not the teams these types of athletes played on won championships or not, they did so despite this selfish outlook. I'd rather play for a team like the Patriots who have won more titles than anyone else in history off the backs of players most people will never remember down the line, but for the pinnacle player, Tom Brady, who gave nothing but props to everyone BUT Tom Brady. He is the most selfless GOAT in the history of sport who went so far as to take a paycut to assure victory for the entire organization and its fans. I love Emmitt Smith and have the utmost respect for his accomplishments, but you can take that me, myself and I bullshit and up it right where the sun doesn't shine as far as I'm concerned. And for the weaklings claiming Brady cheated - blow me. He was proven innocent by the only man in the country to examine evidence for hundreds of hours - New York Law Professor Robert Blecker who proved he was not guilty. Good day. ;-)

      Smarty The Pants Did you watch the part of his speech where he thanked: Jesus Christ, God, his offensive linemen, all of his coaches, Jerry Jones, Norv Turner, Aikman and Irvin and especially Darryl Johnston. He actually cried while thanking Darryl. He said and I quote “You mean the world to me, not just because we shared the same backfield, but because you sacrificed so much for me. People don't understand what it took to be a fullback in our system, the sacrifices you made not simply with your body but your whole spirit. You took care of me as though you were taking care of your little brother. Without you, without you, I know today would not have been possible. I love you from the bottom of my heart.”
      Here is a link to a transcript of his speech if you don’t believe me.

      @Andre Bailey Lol. Look at Sterling's first few seasons. He was head to head with Jerry Rice. His career was ended by injuries though.

      If Sterling Sharpe didn't suffer that career ending injury, he would've been in the Hall of Fame because he was that good and he would've won a couple Super Bowl rings under his resume.

      Ray Lewis stabbed 2 men in the heart after the 2000 Super Bowl. It was Lewis and his posse against 2 innocent men. Most people shoot others but because he was in front of his buddies he chose to stab them. Deserves no respect.
