Menudo

Barry Sanders Jr.

Recommended Posts

He is only a Freshman and this was in the playoffs. Pretty nice run, but, that LB hung with him for a while. Perhaps he doesn't have his Dad's jets.

Barry was more quick than fast. he got ran down many many times on my Lions. it was his side to side movement that made him so special. if the kid has half the footwork his dad had we will be seeing him in the pros.

 

1 thing I noticed brother Menudo is he celebrated more on that run than Barry did in his whole career.interested in watching him get older and seeing how he pans out as that was a fine run.

saw this the other day. I was hoping he would be about a foot shorter and a foot thicker, but just the name enough does it for me. I wish it was legal to draft HS players in my local dynasty!

That is a good observation Doc. I didn't notice that the first time I watched it, and that was one of my favorite things about his dad.

Joe Montana's kid is chuckin Long TDs here in the bay area at De LaSalle High School. Same school Amani Toomer and D.J. Williams went to. Be cool to see Montana to Sanders in the future.

Not a reasonable argument IMO. We're talking about a 14 year old kid. 14 year old kids are supposed to get excited from time to time. I would be willing to bet money that Barry Sanders celebrated his butt off at 14 as well. He isn't old enough to have learned anything about respect for the game.

Celebrity High is what they call it. Will Smith's son and that pretty good hockey player named Gretzky has a son on the same team as well.

Not this year...Montana's kid (Nick) transferred to a school in Southern California (Oaks Christian) because he wasn't getting much playing time at De LaSalle...I believe he is at the same school and on the same football team as Wayne Gretzky's son (Trevor) and Will Smith's son (Trey) .

Two words: Jarrett Payton.

 

That being said, I'm not a hater - good luck to the kid!

 

He wasn't his dad, but he did make it to the pros at least. :wacko:

Correct, little Montana is no longer at De La Salle.

 

Good buddy of mine knew and played against Toomer (played at the public school right next door to DLS).

You're kidding me. He had the best teacher. If he doesn't get it at 14, he won't .... sorry but thats the fact jack.

That's one of the most ridiculous posts I've read in some time.

 

But, sadly, maybe Barry Sr agrees with you. I'm sure most NFL players would. :wacko:

All I said was that it was a good observation. I've got no problem with the kid celebrating his TD.

All I'm saying about the celebration is that it was a sick play, and he's a 14 year old kid, most of which are rather exciteable. Besides, how many of us were listening to our dad at 14? If anything, he would celebrate simply because his father told him not to!

Agreed - he was only 14 and one other thing. His Dad is conisdered one of the all-time best running backs. People probably expect him to do that every play. Imagine the burden of comparison when your Dad was the most elusive runner of all time.

I was on the sidelines for one of his games, he is very good. The team he plays on is loaded and he really does not get the ball that often. He only got 6-8 touches the entire game when we played them.. He broke one late in the 4th quarter for a 50 yard TD though..

Is it me or is he huge. Look like a Lineman or LB more than a RB. He is tall and built.
