Favorite NFL player NOT on your favorite team

Posted on: May 23, 2008 5:14 pm
 
Most fans have an NFL player that they like who is not on their favorite team. I know that the players on any team that beats the Patriots becomes my new favorite team :) Personally, my favorite non-Colts player is NT Jay Alford of the New York Giants. That's probably pretty obvious by now for anyone who has looked at my avatar, but I felt like throwing that out there. So, who is your favorite NFL player not on your favorite NFL team, everybody???

Favorite NFL player NOT on your favorite team

I live close to Cincinnati and I honestly can say that I don't really like any of them. If I were to choose one Bengal player that I like, it would probably have to be Willie Anderson. He is a great offensive tackle and a great guy; unfortunately one of the few on the Bengals team :( Carson Palmer is all right as well.

I am a Bengals fan. Yes believe it or not, there are still Bengals fans! My favorite player outside the Bengals is without a doubt LaDanian Tomlinson. The reason being is that when he gets to the end zone he acts like he has been there before, unlike a certain wide receiver who plays for the Bengals!!! He is classy on and off the field. You never hear of any off the field incidents with him. He is also very exciting to watch. It doesn't hurt that I also have him in my keep league in Fantasy Football!

After what the New York Giants did to the Patriots in the Super Bowl, any of their players would constitute as a player that I like :) Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, Michael Strahan, etc...

This is a very good question. I became a Raider fan in 1967 when they lost to the Packers. Now, its not very fashionable to be a Raider fan these days(Al, please let somebody else, except Matt Millen who is a former Raider, start running the team. "Just win baby." was great when you were smarter than everybody else in the league), but even us closet Raiders would all tell you that you HAVE TO HATE every team in the AFC West at least as much as you like the Raiders. Just look at the logo with the eyepatch. A true Raider couldn't care less about his own personal safety as long as he was inflicting pain on his enemies. "Lost my eye?? Well, here's a jab right back at 'cha"  Now my delima is that I am a huge University of Louisville fan and alumni. The best player on their best team, the 2007 Orange Bowl Champs was Elvis Dumervil. Too short, too light, can't stuff the run, too much of everything to be a great football player. Been proving people wrong forever.

His 2005 season was one of the best for a defensive end in both NCAA and school history, when he broke the NCAA single-game sack record (6) in a game against rival the , and went on to tie the NCAA total for in a single season (20) and break the NCAA record for forced fumbles. His sack total also broke the Big East record set by ,

What team is the most hated team by ANY REAL RAIDER fan, The Denver Broncos. Who drafts Elvis? The Denver Broncos. What's he done for them lately? Dumervil stars as sophomore: Broncos DL played well in his second season in 2007. He led the Broncos with 12.5 sacks and also added 39 tackles (34 solo), one interception and four forced fumbles. Dumervil now has 21 sacks in his first two years in the NFL. What a dilemma!!! Every week I have to root for Elvis to get a couple of sacks(he had 12.5 last year, the whole team had 33!) and hope the Broncos lose. Luckily, last year that happened quite frequently.

Plaxico Burress is pretty chill as well. Unless you are a New England Patriots fan, you gotta love his prediction that the Giants would beat the Pats in the Super Bowl 21-17. His prediction was almost dead on accurate and he obviously knew what he was talking about. It's funny that he didn't give his defense enough credit; the Giants gave up only 14 to Plax's prediction of 17 NE points.

Raiders are my team. That being said my pick would be Tony Romo. He "feels" pressure. He reminds me of Joe Montana in that regaurd.

A couple of throwbacks for me. Earl campbell and Barry sanders. Two completely different styles of running but both were exciting to watch.
