Barry Sanders

He was notorious for sometimes running the full width of the field to gain only a yard on a play then, on the next, suddenly breaking through a hole for a 60 yard gain.

Barry Sanders retired from football, having gained 15,269 yards and 109 touchdowns, the former statistic placing him behind Walter Peyton and Emmitt Smith.
