It all began in 1869 when the NFL (National Football League) was born into the world where today made absolutely famous by some of the greatest best NFL players who took this game and created something else out of it. A legend born centuries ago and carved into the sky with its reputation for putting up a great fight time and time again amongst the world of competitive hard ball kicking players. Here is sincerely something the world knows as an asset in the recreation industry. A sport of brilliance that’s cast in stone by the greatest of places that put NFL to the highest spot of where it belongs in the world of sports. It’s particularly a matter of being up to the highest standards in terms of playing this game and being in the NFL leagues, which only a few talented man worldwide could live up to. This isn’t a ball kicking in the mud type of game, school boys would play on the roads after school. Below are 10 of the best NFL players of all time.
10. Reggie White
Defense! Defenders, ride like the wind and fight proud, his thy defender lord has sent. Defense is this man’s ultimate specialty which spans in both sporting which NFL has become his passion and he sure did “run with it”, literally in defense of that ball for the team. It takes a certain caliber of man to have played a sport and to be nick named after it according to his talent or where his skill would have lied. To be considered as the driving force in certain sports as well is a real honor. It’s purely a matter of genius and the fact that some men were blessed to have both accolades to their name. “Minister of Defense” as his been nicknamed, Reggie White who has now passed away, at the age of 43 has shun an ever glowing light on the fields he once dominated In terms of striking defense mechanisms he was able to put in place.
Reggie White can truly be considered as one of the best of his category in the profound and well-polished history of the NFL. Suffering a fatal Cardiac arrest, Defender Reggie had been called to rest but his name still falls under NFL’s Best of all time.
9. Tom Brady
A well respected player in the NFL enterprise, Tom Brady and certainly a man that’s been a hit with women supporters all over the world. Yet sadly even though he has been suspended during his career due to legal charges and accusations about him being an accomplice in a football deflating issue that obviously goes against all codes of football ethics and established rules ,what made him one of the ten best NFL players of all time is that he always managed to establish and maintain an influential role on other known NFL players as well. Julian Edelman’s NFL success can be owed to Tom Brady as said by the man himself. This is an inspirational aspect of Tom which we can surely respect dearly and besides this, he has shown nothing but pure skill on the field too.
It all began for Tom by watching several matches of the San Francisco 49ers which obviously served as great motivation to him which eventually led him to his football career as it ‘kicked off’ he found himself creating a name for himself when in 1999, orchestrated a chain of skilled action on the field which shot Michigan to Victory and from here gained a solid reputation in the industry.
8. Don Hutson
Every Man makes their mark in some field of expertise in terms of competing against the world and it’s these particular brave, courageous men that I find exceptionally honorable in terms of their talents and tanacity.More especially the bravery to go into world leagues, is where the respect would primarily lie. Don Hutson however was born in the era of where the titanic was still fresh a ‘sink. Hutson here is surely one of the best NFL players of National Football History. Literally in the historical regard. I mean they would have considered him a ‘modern revolutionary player’ of that era of where he reigned in utter football success and hey,the fact that I’m writing about him as one of the best NFL football players in History, should tell you immediately that he is no doubt amongst the best here and deserves a fair spot too.
Watch this classic VIDEO As Don in action purely defines his eccentric spirit on the field and shows his sportsmanship in a form that truly makes him the legend that he is. Old or not, nothing beats a classic, that’s why they call it…a classic. Don Hutson was like a Mustang Shelby 69′ in action in his time and if you’re a Steve McQueen fan, then Don Hutson is surely a Steve of NFL.
7. Dick Butkus
Actually…It’s Richard Marvin Butkus. Sort of like a Raging bull on the field this man is. I must add that he has been drafted by the “Chicago Bears” back in 65′ baby! Yeah, back in those days sport and entertainment used to be seen and enjoyed live in front of hundreds of people waiting in anticipation for the climax of the game to be made by their favorite players. The 60’s has definitely been the era of everything that took a stand of where the world is now strong today.
Richard Marv on the other hand has been considered as one of “the most feared linebackers” and has with no surprise made it into “Football Hall of Fame” which has the exact same popularity as being on “Hollywood Hall of Fame”. In a career of one man whose literally been ‘kicking it’ since the 60’s, this is quite an achievement.
6. Johnny Unitas
Bravo Johnny! Another “Hall of famer” – inducted in 79′. Making it into Hall of Fame regardless of what you’re up at in whatever profession one is in. These men had to “kick” their way through their fame and “Johnny U” as his also known has been one of those land warriors that earned the title of being one of the best in a hard siffed out Ten of the Best NFL players of all time. Why I say Bravo to Johnny is due to the fact that he has played in what has been seen to be one of the most challenging and one of the greatest games in NFL history.
In the midst of Television’s Victorious moment, our man Unitas, successfully lead his team to what was to be their Championship in the end which is really the thing that makes him ultimately man of that and many other matches after that. As we roll back to 58′ he has gained yet another accolade to his name which recognized him as “the best quarterback in the NFL” of that year. With 3 Broken ribs, and game gear that weighed 9 pounds, yet still played to win it most of the time, I can consider him one of NFL’s greatest legends.
5. Walter Payton
Reigning in his NFL career back in the 90’s, Payton seemed to be destined to be elected into Pro Footballers Hall of Fame and just like the rest he has. Walter’s main style and playing ability though apart from other NFL players is what ultimately landed him fifth spot on the list of ten of the Best NFL players of all footballing time. Through the decades the world has seen NFL players at their best and during the 1990’s decade, we can clearly say and history won’t lie that Walter Payton dominated that decade with his great skill depicted by his every move.
Yes. Walter and four other members in 1993 has received footballer’s highest honor for their brilliant and unparalleled game on! Spirit.
Payton on the other hand has literally rewrote the record books of NFL history for his amazing Ball carrying efforts to make sure he plays to win with the co-ordination of his team members. Walter Payton of the NFL has had the victory 125 Touchdowns all time. Another great thing NFL can remember Payton for was his ability to have caught 492 Passes over the large span of 4538 yards! Walter Payton surely ‘paid’ off dearly by his eccentric efforts.
4. Lawrence Taylor
In any creative art, sport, or competitive event, tailor making something to suit preference or to outline oneself from the rest should be the utmost of somebodies endeavor throughout the entire process of whatever it is they are actively engaged in. Anything at which requires skill is something isn’t to be done by just any member who is enthusiastic about doing it. Somebody has to be absolutely passionate about whatever it is that requires to be done. You play the game, then you should sure as hell play it to win it.
Lawrence Taylor is a world class athlete, fit and National Footballer for the leagues also just as most in the ‘field’ of expertise have to be. He has belonged to “New York Giants” which is an American Football team that has been around in the Industry for more than just a while but it’s not the name of a team that makes it, it’s the players such as Lawrence Taylor for an example that make the team at the end of the day. Taylor is ‘widely’ known for his Big sized built and speed which is something of the greatest advantage to footballing the right way. The combination of Strength and Speed is something that ultimately is what’s needed to be a true baller.
3. Joe Montana
This man, Joe Montana, you better respect that name as the name commands universal respect and as well as a well-respected team member even by opposition teams of the National Football League. That alone should renounce to you that he isn’t the type who plays and is un-noticed. Joe has been a well-recognized member the “49ers” And has ultimately made the Team several times throughout his career. Our friend Joe has been a four time Super-Bowl winner Quarterback and this list stretches for as long as the NFL records continue. What the world can ultimately respect as well as what other players can find extremely motivational and that would provide an evergreen supply of motivation from the Formers is that , Joe was the first player to win MVP Honors 3 times which is a reflection of his NFL success overall. Unfortunately for Joe in recent times, all the hard ball hitting and physically activity that strains even the strongest back in his NFL days, has now caught up with him and is making it somewhat difficult to live an active life post NFL as other retired stars would do to keep them going.
2. Jim Brown
As his last name suggests, he fitted perfectly as a member in “Cleveland Browns” playing in the duration of 1957 – 1966, not a very long time on the field as some others but still amounts to some of their success put together. Jim Brown can be considered as one of NFL’s greatest legends if not the best of his time, all of NFL time for that matter. Born in 1936 , he can considerably be regarded as the Grand-daddy of NFL players in this modern day. Can you imagine so many decades of experience in the mind and actionable reputation exhibited by one man? He definitely ought to have a trick or two up his sleeves to show the younger NFL’ers. As the old saying goes, one cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
Jim Brown knocked a staggering amount of 15 National Football League records and most definitely dominated Pro-footballing like no other player could have come close. We can really consider him a true and genuine earner of all his success and well deserved achievements. Jim Brown boasted a wit of intelligence, utter virile strength which was his ultimate lockdown combination which has opened several unreached doors to his career path. Upon the retirement of his career, Brown has been keeping himself and his name polished and shining by pursuing multiple other worthy causes and ventures as well as. Becoming an Actor and socialist as well.
1. Jerry Rice
It is always the most nail biting experience reaching heights of anticipation eager to know who’s the winner of any game for that matter and as far as this list goes and after a hard choice to make amongst all the other National Football League legends, I’ve picked the only the ones who ultimately stand out by being the best of the best in their specific fields of mastering football and giving it a total other dimension other than the usual. Jerry Rice ranks number one on this list of ten of the Best NFL players of all time for various reasons.
Skill, Talent, speed, strength, competitive advantage, sportsmanship, unconventional style and a truck load of success is what puts Jerry Rice as one of NFL’s legendary players list. Now as a retired Wide receiver of the National Football League, let’s give you a flashback of Jerry Rice and what ultimately carves his name across the Fields of Football. Jerry Rice has no doubt depicted the excellence of a veteran football player. Jerry has mastered catching, running, defending and everything that defines the true requirements of the ultimate football player. Rice has won 3 Super-Bowls Rice is the owner of one of NFL’s Legendary unbreakable records and his football career began in school with an exuberance of utter talent for the game. Jerry Rice is arguably the best player in the history of National Football League and his records are untouchable and is yet to be broken by newer players on the field and in the field of League Football. If you feel this is just my opinion, then let the world of his fans speak for themselves and to prove this to be a fact.
