    There are stand-up guys on every team in the NFL & it's always nice to read about it. Regardless of what team they are from.

    It's a refreshing change of pace from reading about another player getting in trouble with the law.

    If only people were more interested in the positive things players do instead of just when they f**k up.

    Mistakes are magnified, and accomplishments outside of play are rarely acknowledged.

    It's good to see that some NFL players aren't shooting people in clubs.

    Re: Bears' Harris befriends wounded child

    Good story. I think working with the charities and communities can really make a player and a team better. When you look at all the charities the Saints participated in I think made them a better team. I think the Vikings should encourage/require all of the players to do more in the community. It builds character.
