    We lost one of the greatest running backs that ever lived. I can remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when they announced on the radio that Walter Payton had died. RIP sweetness...

    I remember his last play. He was stopped 1 yard short on 4th down against the redskins in the playoffs

    For such a nice guy he was just a vicious animal on the field. The hits and blocks he put on people were sometimes painful to watch. Off the field the dude was all class.

    He is overrated. Animalgod could have done what he did behind that line.

    Too bad he didn't die during a game because he would have died doing something he loved.

    I was just fucking around. I can't remember ever seeing him play but he is a beast in the highlights I've seen. RIP
