They got one of them correct. The other racked up 70% of his yards against hapless teams. (Looking at all of your personalities #34)

You’re an idiot if you put him on any all time list as essentially a 2 year player.

I'm fricking around. The board used to get super mad that he wasn't included on lists .

On another note, you would not be able to stop that first RB duo.

re: CBS All time All-Americans
I may have taken Mike Vick, Peyton Manning, Elway, or Vince Young over Tebow on the second team, but Tebow is still a quality pick.

I'd definitely have taken Peter Warrick over Jerry Rice. As good as Rice was at MVSU, D1-AA guy can't get the nod.

I still have nightmares of Johnny Rogers in the 1972 Sugar Bowl.

Dude was something else.

Throwing to Moss and Carter, and Walker and Sanders for a running game. I would want Peyton.

re: CBS All time All-Americans
I see CBS prefers to have a lower yardage output per hand-off than higher.

Interesting.

Not good for team output, but interesting nonetheless.

re: CBS All time All-Americans
I want to bitch and complain and gnash my teeth that no LSU DB is on there either as a first or 2nd team all American, but damn it I can’t find it. Joe Green and Warren Sapp are fricking second team D Linemen.

The only possible spot I’d even entertain the possibility of maybe, potentially, long shot in hell arguing is Patrick Peterson over Rod Woodson.

That’s it
