There was the great Gale Sayers and then there was Walter Payton. Payton nicknamed sweetness was what you put together in speed, skills and just enough size and toughness not to be stopped. There isn’t enough space here to list all of his accomplishments or his impact on the game.Payton was a 9 time pro bowl selection in addition to winning a Super bowl with the Chicago Bears in 1985. His number 34 is retired by the Bears. Highlights doesn’t quite do Walter Payton justice, but we do have them courtesy of youtube.
