MIAMI (NEXSTAR) — There’s no doubt that Barry Sanders is one of the greats. The former Detroit Lion running back is in the Hall of Fame, but he never got to play in a Super Bowl.
In Miami before the Super Bowl LIV, WOOD TV8 sports director Jack Doles sat down with Sanders one-on-one and asked whether that was the one thing missing on his resume.

He also asked why Sanders decided to retire even though he was arguably still in his prime.
“The way I can explain it is it was really just time,” Sanders said. “I think because I was fortunate enough to have 10 great seasons, and I was able to walk away, because of that passion and drive that I needed just wasn’t there in the same way.”
But he admitted that things might have been different if he had been coming off a Super Bowl win.
