It's hard to believe a decade has passed since we last watched #20 work his magic for the Detroit Lions.  In his 10 years as a pro, he was voted to the Pro Bowl every single season and set numerous records. 

Today he's still a fan of the game, both at the college and pro levels.  Sanders chatted with Susie Wargin for the latest 6:20 Sidebar as they talked Big 12 football (his alma matter Oklahoma State and CU will play in November), the Heisman Trophy and the Broncos backfield.

When talking about the Broncos, Susie asked Barry if he ever looked at young running backs like Selvin Young and Andre Hall and thought "I could still do that."  He answered by saying he has sometimes wondered what his career would have been like in Mike Shanahan's system where backs seem to thrive no matter who's in the position.
