Best Athlete ever

  1. @Denver: 331 3 TD
    @ New England: 240 3 TD

    He went IN THE HOUSE of both Tom Brady and Peyton Manning and didn't just win, spanked them both. Come on man. I'm not saying he's Joe Montana but the guy gets it done when it counts. He even tied Joes touchdown playoff record at 11-0. (picks to TDs). He also OWNS THE RECORD for most playoff wins as a QB. When Chris Carter says someone throws one of the top five best deep balls he's ever seen, we have a player. Stop being a hater u sound like a fool

    Not being a hater, just telling the truth. His first three years his D carried him. FACT. He didn't "spank" Denver. He won in OT because of BUSTED coverage, not a fantastic pass. YOU need to get your excitement over the brow toned down a bit and look at the truth. When he drains the Ravens money with his deal and they can't get anyone else, we will see if you are still strokin' his brow. You want to bring up New England games? Kaepernick gave them the business and it was his first HALF year of starting. Playing New England over and over, it's about time Flacco beat them. You should be realistic and don't let one magical run cloud your judgement. You are probably also one of those people that like "butt fumble" Sanchez and point to his playoff record. That right there is proof in and of itself that the sun shines on a dog's @ss every once in awhile.

    Comparing flacco to Sanchez is ridiculous. I would guess you were probably an Eli hater too. Rahim Moore didn't play in all 6 of those playoff games so stop it with the blown coverage argument. And Kaepernick gave them the business out of pistol. Lets see how long that lasts. Anyway I'm just saying Joe Flacco is clutch, look at the records he holds. There is no disputing that. Let's get this back to athletes man lol. Good argument.

    if he didnt have a D, he wouldnt be as good. hes a step above matt schaub but still below the Elite qbs. hes too inconsistent

  5. The ravens D is no longer what it once was. Still very solid, but both Lewis and Suggs missed numerous games. Still a solid defense but not the D that beat the giants.

  6. Best Athlete ever


    Although I agree NFL qbs are great athletes (I even threw up a couple names here) but I don't honestly think you could call them the "best"athletes ever as there are numerous factors to success with them ie great line, great receivers so on and so on. I think we would have to look at other sports to truly fill that spot.

  7. if any of you watch sportscenter, they are actually debating this throughout the next week or two. Bo Jackson just beat Michael Jordan. its by brackets.

    The only problem I have with their list is I'm sure they don't have any decathlon athletes on it and I honestly don't know why they would be left off.

    Agreed! I think to be considered best athlete ever it has to be more of an individual sport rather than a team sport imo. Interesting thread though. It's cool seeing everyone's opinion

    Decathlon by definition means being awesome at a lot of sports. Good point.

    It is very hard to let you have the final word haha. I could keep going. I have so many more points. Just think, it all started with me saying Dave Winfield was a great athlete. haha If I would have said one of the greatest baseball players, THEN you could have taken my man card haha

    I think it's a little bit of both. If you can will a TEAM to victory, that is just as impressive as being dominant in a solo sport. If you can dictate a team game, you have something special going on. As far as this thread, both Lebron and Michael are legitimate athletes. Even though Jordan never made it out of the minors, it is still quite an accomplishment considering he hadn't played baseball since his teens. There is strong talk that Lebron was so good at football he could have been a pro receiver or tight end. I don't see too many solo sport stars being able to kick ass in something else.
  20. Best Athlete ever


    That's why I said decathlon athletes. That's 10 events, have to be a very good athlete to pull that off.

  25. Oh, no question. It's LeBron James. No one has ever seen someone as tall, as big and as FAST as the guy. NO ONE even comes close to his athletic skills. Probably Bo Jackson is the only the can merit the comparison.

  27. Brett Favre!

  28. Michael Jordan without a question

  29. Both great at their respective sports but not the best athletes ever IMO Jordan was a great basketball player but couldn't make it in Baseball. Favre was a good passer although he threw a ton of interceptions and wasn't very mobile. I personally feel that GSP, Jon Jones, or Anderson Silva are better athletes than either of them. Athletes that compete in Decathlons are even better athletes then the Mma guys I mentioned. It's all a matter of opinion of course. Hard to say who actually is the best!

    In addition to being voted by the Associated Press (400 sportswriters and sportscasters) "The Greatest Athlete of the First Half of the Century" (as mentioned above), they also voted him the "Greatest American Football Player" of the first half of the 20th century.
    A 6'1", 180-pound brick of a man, he was a two-time football All-American at Carlisle and was considered the best football (his favorite sport) player in the country (although there was no award at the time). In 1911, he led Carlisle to an 11-1 record and then led them to the national collegiate championship in 1912, scoring 25 touchdowns and 198 points. He played four positions: running back, defensive back, placekicker and punter.
    Also, in 1912, in the Summer Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden, he easily won the gold medals (which were stripped a year later for baseball professionalism, but they were restored in 1982) in the pentathlon and decathlon, winning an amazing eight out of the 15 individual events that were part of the two competitions. Thorpe's Olympic record of 8,413 points in the decathlon stood for nearly two decades.
    He also starred in track and field, was a good baseball and lacrosse player and even won a ballroom dancing contest, all while he was at Carlisle. He also dabbled in wrestling and basketball exhibitions at various times in his life. He went on to become a star in professional football (although there was no official league until 1920), retiring at the age of 41 in 1928, and he was a decent professional baseball player, batting .252 lifetime with a .327 average his final season in 1919.
    Very interesting, never heard of him. Thanks for posting that.
