Walter Payton Open Thread

Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of Chicago Bears legend Walter Payton’s passing.  I grew up watching Payton,  my first childhood hero.  Here’s a Payton tribute video I dug up on YouTube.  If this doesn’t get you going, nothing will.

That dude ran with more heart than anyone playing the game today.  He wanted to deliver the blow on every run.  Can you imagine how many more yards he could have gained if he played behind the offensive lines that Emmit Smith did?
