Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present the first revision of our top 50 Detroit Lions of all-time.
As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National Football League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
This is the second revision of the Lions, and our first since last year.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
1. Joe Schmidt
3. Bobby Layne
4. Lem Barney
5. Doak Walker
The top five remains unaltered from our last rank and there are no new entries, however, minor changes were made.
We welcome your input and commentsand as always, we thank you for your support.
