Our All-Time Top 50 Detroit Lions have been revised to reflect the 2021 Season.

Not in Hall of Fame

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 our post-2021 revision of our top 50 Detroit Lions.

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.

Last year, the Lions again failed to make the playoffs and their poor 2021 led to zero changes in our top 50, nevertheless, the year is now factored in to the rankings.

As always, we present our top five:

1. Barry Sanders

2. Joe Schmidt

3. Bobby Layne

4. Dutch Clark 

5. Lem Barney

You can find the entire list here.

We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
