    Walter Payton was BY FAR the best all around football player I ever saw. He could do everything and anything. Young’uns may think LaDainian T is the first modern day RB to be able to throw a nice pass but it was Walter.

    No one ever claimed that the Dolphins invented the Wildcat. But that wasn’t the Wildcat that Payton was running. The Wildcat is the motion man, usually Ricky Williams in the case of the Fins. That was just Payton playing QB.
