    #17 Jersey

    I think the only thing I'd get upset about is the fact you took the time to actually through and find all of those names :D

    Lot's of unusual names indeed - not too many "John Smith's" in the NFL these days. Although they need to also play well to be unique, and if they have both a unique name and talent it obviously gives them the opportunity to cash in as far as Jerseys, etc. are concerned.

    We'll have to see if any of these guys become household names. People tend to learn to pronounce names of talented guys correctly :)

    What can I say, it was the halftime show, and I can't stand half those clowns, so I had the free time :)
