That's very true. But I think Peyton Manning could have gone down as the greatest player ever had the Colts not lost the Super Bowl a few years ago and continued to play well after. It would most likely have to be a quarterback b/c they usually get all the credit. A player like Devin Hester could have possibly become "one of the best ever" if he played wide receiver as good as he plays kick returner. Even Babe Ruth still has his legacy in MLB today although it is arguable as to if he was the best ever. But you are right, football is the biggest Team sport out of them all.
