    I have no favorite as of now but I'm hoping that it becomes D.C. or A.J.

    sorry, but as long as L.T. and Portis are playing, DD is going to have to break some records before he is considered the best.

    Here is an article on LT I just read: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2004/writers/b_duane_cross/06/23/tomlinson/index.html

    This stat says is all
    If LT had a good line, he could average around 2,000 yards a season (exagerration)

    My favorite player in the NFL is Andre Johnson

    At this time to be honest, Ray Lewis on defense, and Marvin Harrison on offense.

    I really like AJ for the Texans. [​IMG]

    But I like Preist more. He is a "show you" kinda guy. Just like AJ. When AJ starts lighting up the scoreboard, then he will assume the role of NFL favorite for me.

    Thats a hard one but I have to say Kearse or Lynch. I'm a big time Defense person.

    If you mean FAVORITE in a sense that you just LIKE that player for whatever reason, I will have to stick with my favorite Billy Miller!

    If ya mean FAVORITE on playing ability, dedication, years of service, etc. I would definitely have to say Brett Farve! A LEADER and a great role model!

    Yea I'd go with Favre too. You can tell he loves what he's doing and his spirit is infectious.

    I'd fudge a bit on the role model though; he had the drug problem but hey he came out of that and you have to admire that.

    I also like the fact that he's just a good ole boy. No pretense, nothing fancy about him.

    mine is ray lewis...and here's why...saw an interview with him on espn a couple years ago...and they asked him about the way he tackles...this is what he said...when i hit someone i don't want to look them in the eye and see fear nah..it's not like that...i want to him them look them in the eye and see that i own their soul...because as long as their running the ball my job is to stop them"...now that's a football player...he's a little more hyped up during the games then any other player out there...he infects his teamates with his attitude...it's great...next best player out there is brian dawkins

    p.s. and here's a scary thought...ever wonder how great the defense would be if ray lewis and the original L.T. were on the same team at the same time...who would you rather go up against ray or taylor?

    Until this season gets rolling along and I completely change my mind again, my favorite at the moment is Tom Brady....the overachieving underdog of QBs.

    Favorite player ever, Barry Sanders. It would've been Bo if he'd lasted longer.

    Favorite current player: Gotta go with Ray Lewis. He's incredibly disruptive; he always seems to know where the ball's going and he's the best tackler in the game.

    I would have to say Brett Favre...I don't know that he is the best ever, but he is definetly the toughest competitor to take an NFL snap as QB. His Ironman streak of game starts is absolutely incredible.

    The bottom line is the no matter what else is going on in the game if Brett is still breathing you know your time has a shot.

    Barry Sanders is my favorite NFL player of all-time. He did things that I have seen no other RB ever do. The player that moves similarly to Sanders is Dante Hall. Both can stop on a dime and avoid the big hit.

    I really don't have one favorite right now. I am a big fan of the UT RB's (Ricky and Priest). I like Donovan McNabb, Shaun Alexander and Todd Heap too. As far as non-skill position players I like:
    OT Jonathan Ogden
    DT Kris Jenkins
    CB Charles Woodson
    ILB/MLB Ray Lewis
    ILB/MLB Jamie Sharper
    SS Ed Reed
    Heck there are a ton of guys fun to watch.
