    I never liked the guy in college, being a Longhorn fan and all, but I'm starting to like Tim Tebow. The kid has a great attitude, he's a superb athlete, and he just has that drive to win. I'm hoping he gets some playing time this year, because I'm interested to see what he can do.

    What's y'alls favorite non-Texan and why?

    My favorite Non-Texan would be Nnamdi Asomugha :shades:. He is one of the greatest to play his position but somehow manages to remain humble both on and off the field.

    Since I'm a Raiders fan, my favorite Non-Raider would be Andre Johnson for the same reasons Nnamdi is my favorite :D.

    Well best player and favorite player are different things to me. I have to give Peyton best player but he is a whiny beotch so I can't give him favorite. For favorite have to go with Nnamdi because he is the DB anti-matter to AJ's matter. They just work so hard so quietly and get the job done.

    Not saying he's my favourite human being, but as a football player, I'll never respect a player more than I repect Ray Lewis. Probably the best defensive player I have ever seen, and that include LT, so I know I could get flamed for that.

    Best leader I have ever seen don the pads.

    He is such a whiney guy. He and Brady are spoiled little brats on the field. I would say Patrick Wilis. He was my favorite player in that draft.

    Talkin bout the team as a whole, not just the offense! They had a pretty easy sch last year, PLUS, they got a lot of breaks from the refs along the way. Whatever, didn't stop my respect for their QB.

    I've always been a big fan of Donavan McNabb, and I've also had a deep appreciation of the man for being a totally class-act. I remember the crap he had to put up with TO when he went came to Philly and the way he handled himself all the while TO was a real jerk. And then when he was shockingly traded to another team in his own division he was all class again. But McNabb throws one of the best long-balls in the league and he's a QB who offered a lot of mobility, but maybe not so much anymore since he's getting older. So I guess now maybe I'll need to take an interest in the Redskins ?
