AJ Green for the Bengals is far too soon. I'm not sure who it would be instead though, maybe Boomer Esiason?

Or Ken Anderson.

Good pick on Cris Carter...every time I hear this discussion it's Alan Paige vs. Fran Tarkenton for the Vikes. Carter definitely belongs in the discussion.

There's no doubt about it that Dickerson was a damn fine RB. But, I think Warner was slightly better.

Dickerson was a top 5 pick in the 1983 NFL Draft. Warner came from nothing; bagging groceries for a living to becoming the starting QB for the Rams in the 1999 season to bagging a Super Bowl title for the them, and I think that just pushes him ahead of Dickerson by a few points in my mind.

Chuck Bednarick unquestionably for the Eagles.

He's featured in the single most iconic photo in the franchise's history.

Now if there was an "Ass of the Franchise", it'd be Donovan McNabb hands down.

The all time "face" of the Redskins franchise is Darrell Green. He's a demigod here. Far more popular amongst Skins fans than Baugh, Riggins, Monk, Theisman, etc.

For Jacksonville I'd write in Jimmy Smith.

While Sapp is far from a bad choice for Tampa, I've gotta go with Selmon on that one.

Concrete Charlie they called him.

That is what I was thinking too, Frank Gifford missed an entire year after that and at the time he was one of the biggest stars in the NFL. Can you imagine this happening today. Bednarik would get suspended for life for standing over a player he knocked out and mocking him.

Another thing about Bednarik he wasx a two way player, he played offense and defense and he was as tough as nails, when he talks he still looks like he can kick some ass even with his mangled fingers.

Agree with Staubach. I grew up watching Smith, Aikman & Irvin, but Staubach was still the first name that came to mind.
