USA Today's Top 25 Players of the USA Today Era
The countdown has now reached #4, with Lawrence Taylor. Looking at the list
, it's pretty obvious who the remaining three players are: Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Walter Payton. I'm pleased to see Montana outlast the rest of the QBs; whether USA Today will do the right thing and crown him the king has yet to be seen. Rice is clearly the greatest wide receiver of all time. I would pick Emmitt over Sweetness, but neither would be a bad #3 pick on this list.
