    Franchise Players: Best all time for every NFL team

    Franchise Players: Best all time for every NFL team
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3538393

    In early August, we asked SportsNation to select the greatest player for every NFL franchise. Whether it's the Bears and Packers, with nearly a century's worth of choices, or a newbie such as the Texans, every team has a player who stands above the rest. The final results are in. Not surprisingly, there were some slam-dunk choices (see Dolphins and Browns) and a few that have us scratching our heads here in Bristol. (Matt Stover for the Ravens? Were we hacked?)

    Because every selection is subject to review by pundits, we asked our division bloggers to weigh in on your picks...
    We're bringing purple back.

    I'd put Julius Peppers over Steve Smith. But I think it would be close. Other than Baltimore, the list looks pretty alright, although I never heard of that guy for the saints, but then I couldn't think of anybody I could.
    Wait, if there's cat food in this bag............................

    I would put Bart Starr above Brett Favre. Tarkenton is right on. I agree with most of them though except for the aforementioned packer QB and the Ravens.
