Barry couldn't run on grass...read the article I posted
and Jim was 5x the athlete Barry was...infact, Football wasn't even his best sport, he is a hall of fame lacrosse player, arguebly the greatest ever....They had to create new rules in lacrosse because of Brown.
he averaged 38 points per game in college basketball
he was a track star
Barry has nothing on Brown in terms of being a pure athlete, and there is absolutly no question Brown would dominate today's game as well just like WIlt would in today's NBA, he is just that kind of freak athlete.
