    Total homerism here, but I feel positive that, barring a catastrohpic injury, Haloti Ngata will be on this list in a few years. It's absolutely jarring to watch a man his size with that much athleticism and power moving so seamlessly and effortlessly in the trenches and open field.

    I hate to say it, but Brett Favre belongs on this list.

    First and forever foremost is Walter Payton.

    Homer pick is Greg Lloyd. A complete beast in his prime, with his "they didn't hire me for my disposition" t-shirt.

    Sterling Sharpe.

    In his prime, Steve Young is the best complete QB I've ever seen.

    And using Newton's 3rd law, for a completely equal and opposite reason, I'll never forget Ryan Leaf.

    I can't disagree about ngata, but moreso I'd add reed. He's long in the tooth now and has lost a step, but even with that said, you still expect him to do something with the ball. He was a monster on returning picks, and dangerous at returning punts until Harrison gave him an "attitude adjustment" circa 2007 on a return.

    @trumpet 100% agreed no way this list can exist without sweetness. Lloyd holds a spot in my heart too, but I'm biased there.

    As I write this, its becoming more apparent the recent guys have a higher threshold for me. They haven't stood the test of time yet. It doesn't mean I don't think they belong, but sweetness belongs before the current guys. But there is where it gets tough to quantify.

    I won't forget "Broadway" Joe, but I also don't think he's a hof guy, or that great of a player. He was the genesis moment instigator that helped launch the league that's formed the sport we all love so much that we see today.

    Hence my conundrum with the matter.
