I was sitting in my cube the other day, talking about the draft. (I'm a Broncos fan). One of my co-workers (A Raiders fan! Ech!) approached and after I told him I'd already bought my Jay Cutler jersey, told me that he was destined to failure. He asked me how many other good players wore #6? I couldn't answer him. I thought. I thought and thought. All I could think of was Bubby Brister. I KNOW there were tons, and that I'm going to hit myself later when I see them. So everyone, post your famous #6s! Football preferred so I can make the argument, but post any sport for the fun of it!

Antonio Daniels wears number 6 right now. He's probably about as good comparatively as Bubby Brister was.

Here's a super famous number 6:

Does it pain anyone else to see that pic of Ewing in a magic jersey?

Wade Boggs wore 26 in Boston. As for 6, it doesn't have a great NFL history; I can think of Marc Wilson and Joe Nedney off the top of my head.

Martin St. Louis

EDIT: And Steve Sullivan, although I'm not sure if he wore it before going to Nashville.
