Diamonds in the rough.

Diamonds in the rough. ESPN lists the top ten most hated NFL players of all time as selected by you, John Q. Public! Just looking through this, it's a sick reminder that we pay/paid murderers, cocaine addicts, and wife beaters more money in a year than we'll ever see in our lives. What ever happened to sportsmanship and being a role model, anyway? Or just plain not killing people, for that matter...OJ!...*cough, cough*...

It's a bell curve. With a group of people that large there are bound to be some turkeys.

How sick am I that Mr. Not Ready For PrimeTime is pictured in a Skins uniform?

SERENITY NOW!
At least we've got Darrell Green to balance him out.

Yay, my first thought made the list!

Ryan Leaf makes the baby jesus shriek like a flaming sack of cats.

Only reason Elway got the "dishonorable mention" is because he was such a brillant loser for so many years. Three competionless Super Bowls, an endless parade in every NFL city of "should've beat ems", in his younger years the quickest linebackers couldn't even bring him down in a mad scramble and standing in the pocket, and in light of all this he went out on top Back2Back.

He was the end and the beginning of a few of those listed as well.
End: Bosworth
Beginning: Sharpe

Now sadly, word has it, he's to become a prick conservative politician should his hankering call for such a career. Dishonorable mention indeed.

Well, there is precedent for NFL QBs becoming idiot conservative politicians
