Barry was amazing though, greatest open field runner of all time, he just had some pretty big flaws

Sanders lack of goal line "production" is really a bit of a misnomer and had more to do with the system the Lions ran under Fontes and their overall roster make-up. Under Fontes, the Lions rarely used a tight end or full back, and were lost once they got anywhere within five yards of the goal line. Most any running back would suffer in that circumstance.
