Ok i think he is going to be a great back but lets not loose our heads theres only one barry sanders and best is not him. Lets let best play his rookie year before we put him in the hall of fame. I know as a lions fan we have not had much to be happy about and its starting to look like that will be over but we cant put to much stock in one preseason. We cant put him out there the same way we did with Charles Rogers, Harrington, Mike Williams, and Roy Williams. Let him prove he is the real thing first.
