Detroit Lions end Ace Gutowsky circa 1934. He helped the Lions 1934 defense give up an astonishingly low total of only 59 points over the entire 13-game slate. Gutowsky would also finish his career in 1938 as the Lions all-time leading rusher with 2,445 yards, on 698 carries.

Claude Humphrey / Humphrey's stellar career included being named First-team All-Pro five times (1971-'74, and 1977), Second- Team All-Pro three times (1969, 1970, 1976), and All-NFC six times (1970-'74, 1977). He was Second-Team All-NFC in 1976 when Humphrey unofficially recorded a career high 15 quarterback sacks. In addition Humphrey was named to the Pro Bowl six times over the span of his career (1970-'74 & 1977). FINALLY in the Hall of Fame as of 2014.

Barry Sanders, whether you agree with me or not, is the greatest running back of all time. Not Emmit Smith. Barry Sanders. #20. Smith had a great O-line in front of him as well as a great QB who had great receivers, providing a balanced attack. Barry was IT for the Lions. They had some good WR's, but never a great QB, and a piss-poor O-line throughout his career. Take that into account & compare stats again. Sanders wins by a mile. Its a shame he never had a chance to compete for a title.
