Still, there was no question that the greatest Detroit Lion of all-time has to be Barry Sanders.
In the ten seasons that he played, Sanders was named to the Pro Bowl in every single one of them. He is a member of the 2,000 Yards Rushing (in a season) club, a four time rushing champion, six time First Team All Pro and a former MVP.
He is the answer to the question of who is the best player to never play in a Super Bowl, but can you imagine how they would have done if he wasn’t a Lion? They probably would have made the playoffs at all!
