Yep, I agree with #2 and #3.
Statistically, Smith is the best of all time but don't forget "sweetness" Walter Payton got less talented OL than Smith and still able to post the record. He's great both on and off the field and has been in people's memory for so long. This is why I personally better like him.
Also, Sanders' numbers were impressive as he did it without much supporting from his teammates as Smith had during his peak time. If you asked Bucs' defenders; Sapp, Brooks or Lynch whose the best RB, they'd defenitely say Sanders (because they played each other twice a year at the time). For sure, Sanders still sits in all Lions' hearts. This is the reason why Emmitt got booed 2 weeks ago when Cowboys played at Detroit.
This doesn't mean Smith is second to someone or anyone, I believe he is equal as Dorsette for all the Cowboys fans and heading to Canton as soon as he's eligible.
All of them have their own tenure.
