Fantastic cards there bro! Some of the all time greats. They don't make those kinda players anymore.
They sure dont
Ive always been a fan of "old-school" football.
Seem like every year the players get more like spoiled hollywood primadonnas.. just out for themselves and drawing attention to themselves any way they can. Seems like every tackle is followed by a stupid dance by the guy who made it.. no matter if the play lost yards or gained 99 yards. That and they are getting closer and closer to fitting the QB with a dress each season.
I feel the same way about my Bears players.. If Greg Olsen did some Chad Johnson pre-planned dance after every score, I would hate it just as much.. but I would still be happy he scored!
Just another reason my favorite player is, and always will be, Walter Payton. Class on and off the field. Have you even seen a highlight clip of him trying to draw attention to himself after a 5 yard run, or even a touchdown? I do remember quite a few times when he flipped the ball to a offensive lineman after a TD to let them spike it so they could feel that joy though.
Nope.. they just dont make them like they used to, do they?
