Madden 25 Cover Vote: Barry Sanders
How dominant was Barry Sanders’ career with the Detroit Lions? His career was so good it almost needs its own context. Because Sanders retired seemingly at his prime at the age of 30, he ranks “only” third in all-time rushing yardage and “only” eighth with 99 career rushing touchdowns. But the stats are still mind-boggling: 10 straight seasons with more than 1,100 rushing yards, five different seasons of more than 1,500 rushing yards, as well as a 2,053 yard season in 1997. When he retired, he was one typical Barry Sanders season from the all-time record. And then…he was gone.
