    A comment by BraveHeart in the Favre retirement thread got me to thinking. Of the 31 other teams in the NFL which player who played for them did I most admire.


    Giants...Lawrence Taylor. Best Defensive player I ever saw.
    Eagles...Reggie White.
    Redskins...John Riggins.

    Bears...Walter Payton. Sweetness was the perfect description.
    Lions...Chris Spielman.
    Packers...Brett Favre.
    Vikings...Alan Page.

    Falcons...Tommy Nobis.
    Panthers...Steve Smith.
    Saints...Sam Mills.
    Buccaneers...Derrick Brooks.

    Cardinals...Larry Fitzgerald.
    49ers...Jerry Rice. Best football player I ever saw.
    Rams...Jackie Slater.
    Seahawks...Cortez Kennedy.


    Bills...Bruce Smith. Bad things man.
    Dolphins...Zach Thomas. Not because we just signed him.
    Patriots...John Hannah.
    Jets...Kevin Mawae.

    Ravens...Ray Lewis.
    Bengals...Anthony Munoz. One of the top 3 players I ever saw.
    Browns...Jim Brown. Sorry Juke.
    Steelers...Joe Greene.

    Texans...Demeco Ryans.
    Colts...Johnny Unitas.
    Jaguars...Tony Boselli.
    Titans (Oilers)...Earl Campbell.

    Broncos...John Elway. The prototype for QB.
    Chiefs...Tony Gonzalez.
    Raiders...Bo Jackson. What if...
    Chargers...Kellen Winslow Sr.

    These are the guys I got to see live since I started watching football. It is easy to say that Unitas and Brown were the greatest based on what I have seen of their highlight tapes, but I never had the privilege to see them during live games.

    Eagles...Reggie White
    Redskins...Darrell Green

    Bears...Walter Payton
    Lions...Barry Sanders
    Packers...Sterling Sharpe
    Vikings...John Randle(I was really too young to remember much of Page's career)

    Falcons...Deion Sanders(Too young to remember Nobis and no body else comes to mind)
    Panthers...Steve Smith
    Saints...Sam Mills
    Buccaneers...Derrick Brooks

    Cardinals...Larry Fitzgerald
    49ers...Jerry Rice
    Rams...Marshall Faulk
    Seahawks...Steve Largent


    Bills...Bruce Smith
    Dolphins...Dan Marino
    Patriots...Tom Brady
    Jets...Curtis Martin

    Ravens...Ray Lewis
    Bengals...Anthony Munoz
    Browns...Clay Matthews, Jr.(I was too young to actually ever see Jim Brown play.)
    Steelers...Joe Greene

    Texans...Demeco Ryans
    Colts...Peyton Manning(Again too young to see Unitas)
    Jaguars...Jimmy Smith
    Titans (Oilers)...Earl Campbell

    Broncos...John Elway
    Chiefs...Tony Gonzalez
    Raiders...Lester Hayes

    Hard to argue with that list, I'd put Pat Tillman on there.... but that's for what he did leaving football, not on the field so I don't know if that quilifies.

    I think what qualifies is whatever you feel does.

    I have to admit after I posted it Deacon Jones, Andre Johnson, Pat Tillman, and Clay Matthews are excellent choices I didn't consider and should have.

    My all-time non-cowboy favorite player to watch was Ricky Williams..Why do you guys think he keeps getting a second and third chance. He was amazing for a little bit with the Dolphins.

    Other players I love to watch are:

    Ed Reed
    Rey Lewis
    Champ Bailey
    Moss
    Manning
    Steve Smith
    Julius Peppers
    AP
    LT


    Retired guys would have to be:

    Terrel Davis
    Marshall Faulk
    John Elway
    Steve Young
    Micheal Vick
    Reggie White
    Curtis Martin
    Keyshawn Johnson (mostly with the Jets)
    Steve Atwater


    I know there are soooo much more but I cant think of them all right now.
