Not in many team sports can you sineglect out a guys stats and directly compare him to players in nearly any era. It's almost an individual sport within a team sport in that aspect. Makes for a sport with a lot of data points for discussion and history.
Good luck deciding if Emmitt Smith was better than Barry Sanders or if Emmitt just had a better offensive line and a better team around him in general. You can logically compare Mike Trout to Mickey Mantle in baseball as individuals.
