I despised Staubach (and the Cowboys) as a kid but after watching his A Football Life episode I became a huge fan. He is the definition of the All American Boy and lives his life the right way. I made both my boys watch it.

Met him once years ago at a social event and didn't take advantage of the opportunity. Always sorry I didn't ask him a few questions and talk football ... or maybe bring a few cards for him to sign ;-) This was before I got back into collecting and the thought didn't even cross my mind.

I watched Montana, in the twilight of his career with KC, totally pick apart a very good Charger defense like he was a surgeon. That was fun to watch.
Me too! As a young kid he was my favorite player. Wish I had seen him play at Alabama when his knees weren't such a mess. From all accounts he was pretty mobile then.

Dan Marino. Cool as hell and a cannon for an arm. One of the best ever, even on a bunch of crap teams.

Jack Tatum . The Assassin. Name says it all: 100% badass. I got to meet him once at a Raiders signing show.



Historical nod to Jim Brown. The GOAT.

Tatum of course is remembered for the hit that paralyzed Darryl Stingley but if you watch the film it looks more like Stingley who was diving crashes into Tatum at an unfortunate angle.

Without this the game is stale and boring and I donít understand the point of them being paid what they do. My argument was always that they got paid for this body sacrifice they made.
LT was an absolute game changer! Parcells and the Giants did a pretty good job of turning him loose to disrupt opposing offenses. I will never forget the MNF game when he crushed Joe Theismann.

Yes!!
Marino is my favorite player ever too!
(As a young Dolphins fan I was Jim Kiickís biggest fan...and now I have ~50 of his 1971 Topps RC. Iíd like 213 more )

Todayís game is so much different but my main man is Drew Brees. I Love the Saints! Iím not looking forward to his retirement, although I know itís coming soon. I donít have any idea who I would cheer for next as my favorite current player.

But above and beyond all of this, Dan the Man is always going to wear the crown.

Jim Kiick! That's cool, I kind of have a little mini-PC of the dynasty Dolphins myself. So, looking to complete a complete set of just Kiick, that's a unique goal. Good luck.

No doubt on who this is for me. Easy choice because I grew watching him and was always amazed at what he could do despite the critics saying he would never make it as a Pro. He was undersized, did not have a huge arm but had a way about him. I arguable consider him the best scrambler ever. He had this way of finding a way to win kinda like Captain Kirk always found a way to stay alive. I would like to know how many miles he scrambled? When he retired he had every major passing record which all have since been broken.
