Clayton's 10 most feared players in the NFL
 
[url=http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=clayton_john&page=hotread7/clayton]ESPN - Clayton: 10 who excel at scare tactics[/url]

I think the list is ok but Clinton Portis deserved to be on there purely because he is the best at pass blocking at his position.

Also, I would have expected at least a shout out to #21...if you read the fan comments at the bottom there are so many ppl giving props to Sean Taylor. Post some love too...RIP ST!

Can someone give me a quick recap of the top 10? My company blocks espn's website, as well as jumpthefiler.info.

I think that list is mostly D players. the few offensive players either have the lable of cheap shot players or dirtly players. Clinton shouldn't be on that list. Hines ward wouldn't be on there either if it wasn't for the last couple of cheap shots he has put on players that weren't even near the play. Runyan, he is a dirty player. he is on the dirtiest players list every year.

He's unblockable and dangerous. Fortunately, he has calmed an angry streak that almost led to release from the Titans and a long, long suspension by the NFL for stomping on the face of Cowboys center [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3565"][COLOR=#000000]Andre Gurode[/COLOR][/URL]. Haynesworth got off easy with a five-game suspension for that 2006 incident. Now he's just destroying offensive players legally.[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=964"][COLOR=#000000]Ray Lewis[/COLOR][/URL], LB, [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=bal"][COLOR=#000000]Baltimore Ravens[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
At 33, Lewis has found the fountain of youth. His legal hit on the Steelers' [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11257"][COLOR=#000000]Rashard Mendenhall[/COLOR][/URL] ended the rookie's season and showed Lewis still has it as an intimidating middle linebacker. He has been able to look younger because nose tackle [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9598"][COLOR=#000000]Haloti Ngata[/COLOR][/URL] is occupying enough blockers to let Lewis run free.[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1826"][COLOR=#000000]Joey Porter[/COLOR][/URL], LB [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=mia"][COLOR=#000000]Miami Dolphins[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
He's back. The Steelers let Porter go, thinking he was on the decline. He's not. Porter leads the NFL with 10 sacks. He's willing to talk trash and can back it up. Porter called out Patriots quarterback [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8644"][COLOR=#000000]Matt Cassel[/COLOR][/URL] in September and then went to Foxborough and harassed him all day.[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1494"][COLOR=#000000]Hines Ward[/COLOR][/URL], WR, [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=pit"][COLOR=#000000]Pittsburgh Steelers[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
Though he's intelligent and always seems to have a smile on his face, Ward is the most feared blocking wide receiver in football. He's now drawing fines like defensive players, but he believes in delivering the blow instead of receiving it. He broke the jaw of Bengals linebacker [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11243"][COLOR=#000000]Keith Rivers[/COLOR][/URL] with a hit in Week 7 is drawing bounty calls from [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4468"][COLOR=#000000]Terrell Suggs[/COLOR][/URL] and the [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=bal"][COLOR=#000000]Baltimore Ravens[/COLOR][/URL].[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2612"][COLOR=#000000]Adrian Wilson[/COLOR][/URL], S, [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ari"][COLOR=#000000]Arizona Cardinals[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
This spot was reserved for safeties [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3536"][COLOR=#000000]Roy Williams[/COLOR][/URL] of the Cowboys and [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=597"][COLOR=#000000]Rodney Harrison[/COLOR][/URL] of the Patriots, but both have been lost for the season with injuries. From 2001 to 2007, Wilson's 17 personal fouls led the NFL. He has paid enough in fines during his years to field a 17-week, eight-man practice squad. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5569"][COLOR=#000000]Bob Sanders[/COLOR][/URL], S, [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind"][COLOR=#000000]Indianapolis Colts[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
Sanders is the best pure tackler in football. When he returns to the Colts' lineup, presumably in Week 9, the Colts will suddenly have a run defense. Any receiver crossing the middle also has to prepare for a knockout hit by Sanders. By the way, just so I'm not slighting [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4474"][COLOR=#000000]Troy Polamalu[/COLOR][/URL] of the Steelers, I'm attaching him as a 6A, but I don't want the list just filled with safeties. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1057"][COLOR=#000000]Jon Runyan[/COLOR][/URL], OT [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=phi"][COLOR=#000000]Philadelphia Eagles[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
For years, he has been considered perhaps the nastiest offensive lineman in football. How nasty? Fans usually vote him to the Pro Bowl. Players, who have a one-third share in the balloting, vote him out and have limited Runyan to one trip to Hawaii. His off-the-field niceness turns nasty when he takes the field.[/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2609"][COLOR=#000000]Shaun Rogers[/COLOR][/URL], NT, [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=cle"][COLOR=#000000]Cleveland Browns[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
The criticism in Detroit was that he took plays off if he got bored. Hey, in Detroit, the Lions take seasons off, so it's only natural. Moving to Cleveland has once again turned him into a beast. In Week 8, he tormented the Jaguars' offensive line. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8488"][COLOR=#000000]Justin Tuck[/COLOR][/URL], DE [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyg"][COLOR=#000000]New York Giants[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
It's not his attitude that strikes fear into opposing offensive players. It's his unbelievable first step to the right. Tuck has the best inside move in the game. From left end, he steps inside of a blocker and then gets a clean drive to the quarterback. What coaches fear is the speed and angle of how he comes to the quarterback. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][/FONT][/COLOR]
[B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1620"][COLOR=#000000]Olin Kreutz[/COLOR][/URL], C, [URL="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=chi"][COLOR=#000000]Chicago Bears[/COLOR][/URL][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]
The best testament to his mean streak is what his teammates think of him. They know not to anger him because an angry Kreutz is a dangerous person to be around -- even when he's on your own team. He's one of the best leaders among offensive linemen, and he's not going to take anything from any defender. [/FONT][/COLOR]

What? No access to ESPN.com? Do you work for Fox Sports?

Re: Clayton's 10 most feared players in the NFL
 
I have no problem with this list. I would put Ray Lewis at the top. Adrian Wilson and Bob Sanders should also be higher. I question whether a receiver, Hines Ward, intimidates the opposition. I would say a running back like Brandon Jacobs, LenDale White or Clinton Portis are more intimidating.

I have a feeling that one day LaRon will be ruling this list

Hahaha, no not FoxSports. I have access to every other fathomable sports website, but they have youtube, myspace, espn, nfl, and any link with streaming video blocked. I've tried getting around it, but they have a pretty good filter.

Thanks for the list Angry

Ward will get to know Laron this Monday IF hes gets the chance to cross the middle. I have a feeling LL will be all jacked up to lay the boom on this turd!
