Jughead?? :headhurts:

jk....

Tough to say because when it comes to favorite players I am a homer all the way. I have trouble even watching sports after Houston teams are eliminated from contention...which is happening way too often as of late.

I agree about Adrian Peterson...not upset about the Okoye pick [since we didn't have a shot without trading up anyway] but Schaub + AJ + AP all on the field would have been amazing...

I also like watching Brandon Jacobs run...the guy is a monster. I really need to watch more non-Houston games next season.

I hate it when we have to play this guy because he has always killed us,
along with most other teams he's plays against, but Dwight Freeney is one of
my favorite NFL players and one of the most entertaining players for me to
watch.
He's an incredible talent with an incredibile motor. One of those rarities who is not only blessed with tremendous natural ability but is also the consummate overachiever.

That reminds me...Bob Sanders is one of my favorites. Imagine if he was a Texan? :wild:

So much so that I aged a whole year before replying.

Agreed. I remember watching Marino to the Mark Brothers, John Elway losing the SB to the 49'ers, seeing Bo play and Herschel Walker. That guy had the quickest feet ever.

Past: Tom Rathman, Dan Fouts, Brent Jones, Mark Bavaro, Walter Payton, Reggie White and I guess Favre goes in the "past" category now, too.

Rathman in particular stands out in my mind.

Present: Peyton Manning, Marion Barber (I hate the 'boys but like watching that dude run), Brian Westbrook, Ed Reed.

Hard to name any present players because I've got such a bias. I almost feel guilty naming players other than Texans.....
