Cant happen in football because of platoons.
You can seriously argue that the best player EVER would have to be a two-way player because playing on both sides of the ball is the elite level of greatness.
The argument is slightly easier in basketball where players star on offense and defense (That's why, to me, Jordan is better than James, by the way).
To me, you cant use team accomplishments to nominate players for greatest of all time..but they can be used to break 'ties' among all time greats.
For example, Bill Russell is NOT better than Wilt Chamberlain because he won 11 titles.
No one..not even Russell would ever say (to my knowledge, he never has) that he was greater than Wilt...
No one will even have Wilt's numbers again
Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it? (The Colts horseshoe, anyway. Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).
Seven is considered a lucky number... Lucky. Luck. I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.
Don't hold Boston against the Irish. It's not our fault. We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.
I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats. I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts. That's providence.
Horseshoe? Luck? Four-leaf clover? Come on. Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery. If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough! May the luck of the Irish be with you!
