Default Favorite NFL Players

Offense:
Anquan Boldin

Dude is just a competitor. The reason I like him more than Fitz is because I love how he will run anyone over and take hits in the middle of the field. He's also the 3rd best quarterback on the Cards. I can't wait to see how the Whiz will use his skills.

Defense:
Adrian Wilson

Not many players love being a Cardinal but he's one of them. He keeps getting better each year and he should get even better in the new defensiev scheme. Dude does it all...from interceptions to setting the sack record by a db. Heres what happened when he got news of Trot Ps new contract

Quote:
Wilson[, on vacation,] was on his cellphone, talking with a buddy, when he got word that the three-time Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowler was ready to sign a five-year, $33 million extension, including $15.3 million in signing and roster bonuses.... Talk about a shutdown safety. Wilson shut down his vacation four days into a planned 17-day retreat and returned home in a bid to raise his game and finally reach the playoffs this season in Arizona.

IMO he will show this year that he is the NFL's best SS.

I like Boldin too...that guy is greatness

I have to be a homer with my own picks though

Offense = TO
Defense = D.Ware

my non-homer picks

Offense = A.Peterson

I can not wait to see what this kid is capable of in the NFL

Defense = C.Bailey

Any CB with those kind of skills has my respect....he is as close to Deion cover wise as you can get....too bad he can't return a punt/kick

Tough, I like Fitzgerald, Peterson, and Tarvaris Jackson all pretty equally but Ill have to go with:

WR Larry Fitzgerald: If he was on my team hed be my favourite player of all time I bet.

On D, no doubt:

CB Antoine Winfield: BEST CB TACKLER IN THE LEAGUE. Bar none.

No, that goes to Champ Bailey.

I'll make non-Broncos picks.

Offensive player: Reggie Bush - Obvious/Boring pick but...This guy is just pure excitement. I don't think he can be an every-down back, but whenever he touches the ball I'm immediately on the edge of my seat. A threat wherever he lines up on the field.

Defensive player: Sean Taylor - I don't like his demeanor on field, with the spitting and occasional excesive celebrating, but he is a great Safety when he wants to be. He has some growing up to do but still one of the most intimidating players out there.

Funny. Boldin was the first player to come to mind.

OFFENSE: Carson Palmer. Showed the world his determination and toughness by coming back from his injury the way he did. A great leader. Quiet and humble.

DEFENSE: I can't really single out a Bengals player that is inspiring enough to call them my favorite defender in the NFL. I gotta go with Brian Urlacher. Dude is just everywhere on the field. THe perfect blend of speed, agility, and toughness

I'm always a fan of the defensive ends. Julius Peppers and Jason Taylor, similar athletic freaks who can get sacks. Taylor is already in his 30's yet he's still dominating. Dwight Freeney is also fun to watch. He's so small for a DE but his spin move is
