My apologies, allow me to re-phrase. It is very difficult for me to take your opinions as fact, when I see nothing on this film that would lead me to believe he was better than Payton ...other than pure speed. I also see a LOT of open field for Sayers, while Payton was his own OL by necessity early on.

I'll scan the menu if i remember to take it tonight.
That being said...I still cant rate him higher than Walter. They both were so damn good. I still say for one game...Sayers. One season...Payton.
