Les 25 plus grands des 25 dernières années.

Le gars est en vacance et il s'amuse.

Pour moi, John Elway des Broncos vient au deuxième rang. Il n'avait pas de receveur de la trempe de Jerry Rice et il était un bon coureur. Brett Favre vient avant Dan Marino. Favre a gagné et Marino n'a rien gagné. LaDainian Tomlinson avant Marshall Faulk et si LT gagne un Super Bowl, il sera dans le top ten. Ils ont oublié Marcus Allen. Je l'aurais pris bien avant Eric Dickerson. Qu'en pensez-vous?

About this series: A panel of 10 NFL reporters and editors at USA TODAY cast votes in this project. Points were assigned (25 points for the player voted No. 1, 24 points for No. 2, etc.), and the cumulative points determined the rankings.

• The list covers the past 25 seasons. Instructions to panelists stated that if a player competed in any one of those seasons, then the player's entire career could be considered for the rankings.
