    I agree with Colombo being #1. That guy is a bad ass. I would love to see him in a Pats uniform. Not only is he a mauler, but he's also aggressive. I've seen him get into a few fights, the most recent being against the Bucs last year when I saw him toss a LB around like a rag doll. Can't remember exactly who it was, unfortunately.

    As for Tommy Boy, he's the only QB I've seen in recent years that has cursed out a couple of safeties. He's intense and does belong on that list himself.

    He's definately the toughest QB. I've seen him take the nastiest hits, and I've seen him block for his teammates. He always get back up (except last year obviously) and you don't know that there's something wrong until after the season is over...unlike someone like Ben "Worthless Hotdog" Roethlisberger, who will make sure you know he had xrays.

    I liked that in a roundabout way, he sort of implied Manning was a puss in comparison to Tom.

    He was round-a-bout. I'm not, Manning is a puss, a Dome puss with tons of offensive talent laid at his feet, and what's he done but throw up a lot of fancy numbers and one ring.

    Indy is close to done, and I expect two .500 or worse finishes in '09, '10, '11, '12, where will Manning be then? Getting driven over again and again as the expensive talent on that team ages.

    Docket plays in the "dessert?" We must be reading cutsie Dukesie and his weird oblique spheroid perspective, sadly weird much too often.

    It's nice Tommy is on the list, but I can't help but be dismayed by the source of the story.

    Well, it sounds like James Harrison is helping the building supplies industry. All those O lineman barging into Home Depot to buy shutters. The thought of it makes me shudder.

    i'd bet that if you had a scale that combined a player's ranking according to the "toughest" and the "best" measurements, TB would come out on top by a large measure

    I thought it meant they were adjusting their F-stops or something... :confused2: It's not often someone makes me feel smarter than my user name, but ol' Jamie sure tries, and that's without the 'spellink' errors.

    "Offensive lineman shutter when they have to face this pint sized dynamo."

    Heh, heh. Better tone that one down. :) When "shutter" is used as an intransitive verb it means to "close down" or stop normal operating. So, suggesting that O linemen react that way to whomever the OP was citing is actually a correct, if arcane, use of the word. (Two quick points: one, I am clearly joking with you and two, I think this means it's time for the regular season to start.)

    Your rely knot being very forgiving. Mr. Dukes was quiet busy the knight he rote that blog entry. Jest so you no, he used spell-check and all of those words where spelled write. Cut him sum slacks, he has to right several sports peaces every weak. I would really like two sea even half of the posters hear write articles on a regular biases, expounding on strategy and the Patriots' moves regarding there personal.

    I, four one, solute him for his effects.

    I'm sure you have an equally sweet defense of his 'dessert' remark.

    Any reasonable person knows he meant to use shudder and failed to proof read, so it is really a mute point :)

    H'mmm you could be right, after all "intransitive" clearly does apply to Mr. Dukes. :D

    Thanks for the Engrish reminder, now that I've looked at the example used in the definition I'm reminded I have seen that in my reading, but it is an uncommon turn of phrase in the txt msg age lol. :ugh:

    I often think of Dukes as nothing more than a TV talking head with a huge bias toward Atlanta.

    But is he saying that Brady wants to win more/is prepared to do more to win than Payton? That is a strong statement indeed!

    For QBs, Phillip Rivers deserves to be on the list. He played with a torn ACL...and he played well.

    yo...lighten up...that's way too serious a response to what was clearly a joke...but to be boringly and pedantically clear, yes, of course, it is clear to any intelligent observer that the original was a typographical error, probably the result of a spell checker that let a correctly spelled but inappropriately used word go through; on the other hand, we shouldn't rule out the possibility of a less than sophisticated level of literacy...there, "reasonable" enough? cheesh! but i guess it was my just desserts. (and, yes, I know that the proper spelling of the word in that case is "deserts")

    Well, technically, I'd called that scrappy. In this rare case, Jamie Dukes is using tough in the combative sense. There are some guys whom you just don't want to make your enemies, and Tom Brady is one such player - the equivalent of a Stalingrad mindset on the football field.

    Whoops! I didn't mean to squish a fly with a sledgehammer.

    I reread my post and what seemed like a harmless and funny post the other day does sound a little harsh in retrospect.

    No offense intended friend.
