You might be the one that knows nothing about football..
To me,a "Great one" is a returner who is feared everytime he touches the ball. That wasn't Royal. He had the ability to take it the distance, but teams didn't fear him.
Big differece with guys like Upchurch, Mitchell, Sanders, Hall, and Hester. Those guys were/are feared everytime they touch the ball.
Just my opinion......that's the difference between very good...and truly great!
