January 2015 Av Contest - Favorite Football Player
« on: January 12, 2015, 09:54:33 AM »
Seeing as we're in the Aus Jus of the NFL Playoff season I figure it would be good to sport our favorite football player avies.  You can go back to  years gone by if you want or pick someone that happens to be your favorite from time gone by.

I'm going with James Lofton of the Packers.  I grew up in the 70's and 80's as a kid and they really stunk until Lynn Dickey, John Jefferson, Paul Coffman and Lofton actually gave them a good offense.

Lofton is in the HOF.

Congrats fellow cheesehead!


Hard to choose just one player but I went with another number 80, Donald Driver. A class act both on and off the field.
Future Hall of Famer.

The Majik Man

Tough decision for a favorite, so many to choose from with Reggie White to Donald Driver.
Figured it was time to give some love to the QB who sparked the fire that brought the Packers back to their winning ways.

I'm going with a guy who I dispised when he played college ball because he kept beating my Razorbacks but I loved to watch in the Pros.  I always wondered what he would have accomplished if he had been on a team like the Steelers.

This was a hard choice.

I finally decided to go with Peyton Manning because I've liked him ever since he was a Tn Vol.

There are so many players I like but I've not been following the NFL for a really long time so that's why I chose him

-I'm in!

-I decided not to go with any one player- Tom Brady would've been too obvious a choice- but rather to go with two players that kinda embodied the spirit of the Pat's defence that was key to their 3 Super Bowl wins- Teddy Bruschi & Mike Vrabel.

I had thought about Peyton, and Andrew.  Also Ken Dilger and Chad Bratzky whom I met and talked with in the late 90's.  And then I thought about one of the greatest patriotic acts I can recall.

Went out last night and got really wasted. 
I woke up in the middle of the night next to some chick who was snoring and farting, so I knew I made it home OK.

I'll try and start the Poll on the 23rd and end it on the 25th.

Do we have any other people participating?

Interesting comparison on the Conf Championship Pregame show that compared Montana and Rodgers, amazing the similarities when you see the tapes back to back.  Rodgers still has much more to prove though.  Montana was awesome.
