1) Warren Sapp – all mouth, marginal game
2) Terrell Owens – big game player but too many drops, too much showboating
3) Tim Couch – 4 years of failure don’t mean I’m not a bigtime QB.
Conrad Dobler – Cardinals (IIRC)
Jack Tatum – Raiders

Randy Moss. Quite possibly the greatest receiver in the game today….but
he doesn’t have to be so obnoxious about it.
Kurt Warner. The most overrated player to ever grace a football field,
though I will admit that I dislike his wife more.
Terell Owens. Shut your d*** mouth and play.
Michael Irvin. The quinessential player of my dislike. Not only was he
obnoxious, but he looked stupid being obnoxious.
Reggie White. A bigot. Enough said.
Terry Bradshaw. My dislike for him didn’t come full circle until he started
making an idiot of himself on Fox’s pregame show.
And an honorable mention goes out to Chris Collinsworth for the same reasons
as I listed for Bradshaw.

I despised Irvin, but more for his off-the-field activities than his on-field
Jim Brown is another guy I despised for incidents during his after football
life, although he has done good work as a mediator for gangs and things like
that. My Uncle is a retired LA County Sherriff who got called to Browns house
on more than one occasion on domestic charges.
There’s OJ, of course. No contest. Hard to believe in a couple weeks it’s
been ten years since the murders.
Ray Carruth also.
As far as on the field behavior, I have to say I despised Deion more than
anybody in the past 20-25 years. He was a great player, and he didn’t have to
let us know it every time he opened his mouth. My favorite Deion story is from
when he was with the Cowboys in 1995, Deion actually went to Cowboy management
and told them he wanted a particular piece of rap music played over the Texas
Stadium sound system during his punt returns, special theme music strictly for
his punt returns.

Hmm .. don’t see the reason to despise any of these folks .. some I wouldn’t
want on my team, but just do to talent .. McNabb is a tremendous athelete
and, so far at least, has great leadership skills, great moral character,
very down to earth likeable guy .. Kordell seems to me to be a good guy too
… just lacking in the athletic and leadership skills to be a starting QB ….
Agree on Gastino .. he’s in jail these days by the way ..
Agree BIG TIME on Romanoski .. what a j*** he was .. not to mention being a cheap shot artist
strange pick .. what did you despise about him?
he always gave 150% … unfortunately, it was 75% effort, 50% showboating,
and 25% mouth …
Bubby “Mr Temper” Brister? Hmm .. kinda agree …
Agree .. 350 pounds of fat and 100 pounds of mouth ..
You mean Dan Fouts? What didn’t you like about him? I thought he was a
class act all the way ..
Don’t agree with this one ..
BTW, no offense, but if you’re going to list players on a ‘most despised’
list, you should look up the spelling of their names .. you missed a few ..
George c 2012-07-15 19:00:43
showboating agree big time
agree big time again
don’t agree .. his leadership sucked .. his attitude sucked .. but he wasn’t
the total a** that Leaf is …
OK .. my turn …
Tyrell Owens (yes, I listed him twice .. that’s how much I despise him)
Fred Taylor (“who cares if we lost .. did you see that great run I made?”)
Eli Manning (yes .. already .. d*** crybaby thinks he’s too good for the
chargers .. I hope he’s playing arena football this time next year)
Mike Harden (cheap shot artist)
Randy Cross (leg whip artist)

Pretty funny that you just blasted the earlier poster for misspellings
of names, then you go and commit the same offense (and do so twice for
good measure with Terrell Owens)
George c 2012-07-15 19:00:48
lol .. ur right … shame on me .. 🙁 BTW, I didn’t ‘blast’ anyone ..
just pointed out that he/she misspelled a few names to the point where I
wasn’t absolutely sure of who he/she was talking about ..
george (spelled correctly!)
Unknown 2012-07-15 19:00:50
Even though I mis-spelled them, you knew who they were Jeorge 😉
Well, some people you like..some you don’t. I can’t explain it. It is based
more on Emotion than reason. Let’s see…
McNabb: probably because he is from Philadelphia and I live on the other end
of the state. I think Pennsylvania would be much better off if we gave
Philly to New Jersey. I don’t like Philadelphia ( the people there seem
disrespectful to the rest of the State) and I get tired of hearing Philly
fans claiming McNabb is so great…
Kordell: Well, I watched him when he was a Steeler. His presence torn our
fan base apart into the ‘I love Kordell’ and the ‘I hate Kordell’ fractions.
If you visit the Steeler NG you will see it is still going on today.
Bulger: He grew up in a neighboring town….. strictly personal reasons
here. ( I had Kurt Warner as the starter of last years Fantasy football
I just didn’t like his character and some of his comments about the
Steelers. One Pittsburgh radio station took to calling him ‘Captain
D*******’ at the time…. crude but effective.
Pittsburgh QB controversy. ‘I’m your man!!! write it down’.. ‘I’m not going
to go out there and mop up for anyone!!’ and he tried hitting on my female
cousin in a local night club “how would you like to go upstairs with me ,
darling?”… no thank you…. “But I’m Bubby Brister!”… and I’m
married!.. “I don’t care!”… well, I do!… “F*** you, B****!!”
He testified in court, I forget the reason for his testimony but it wasn’t
against him. They asked him under oath if he thought he was currently the
best QB in the NFL. Natuarally, he said ‘Yes, I am’ like any fan would
expect their QB to do…. again I’m a steeler fan, Foust would not of been
on the top of my list for QB…everyone knows Terry Bradshaw was the
greatest QB of all time ;)… I loved to see Foust get creamed simply
because he was good and I’m for the other team (same reason why I enjoy
watching Dallas or Notre Dame lose to anyone just as much as I enjoy a Home
Anti-Franco remarks. “Harris is just out there milking out his carreer just
to pass me on the list. I might sign for a season just to keep him from
I forgot all about OJ Simpson and a few others mention in other lists.
Basically, George, a despised list doesn’t have to be based on reason… it
is an emotion. Some people like Pepsi and hate Coke. Some people are
Democrats, some are Republicans…. and that rhetoric is really getting
extreme on both sides.

Me 2012-07-15 19:00:58
ok .. thanks. I just wasn’t very familiar with some of the players you
picked and wasn’t aware of any controversy or anything about them. I
kind of agree with you on McNabb (ok .. someone check my spelling again
lol) but it’s not HIS fault .. he doesn’t stike me as being a big self-
promoter ala the self-proclaimed ‘prime time’ .. but you would know a
lot more about Penn players than I would ..
Re Jim Brown, you’re absolutely right .. I had forgotten about Mr Ego ..
I had kinda started liking him due to all his work for minority kids
Re Brister .. all I can say is WOW .. what an A****** that guy must have
been to treat a lady that way!
Racerx 2012-07-15 19:01:34
1. Keyshawn Johnson
2. Terrell Owens
3. Warren Sapp
1. Jack Lambert
2. Joe Theisman (I don’t especially like him as a color commentator
3. Lawrence Taylor (Although I owe him for ending the career of #2.) 😉
Mike murray 2012-07-15 19:01:36
c’mon, it’s freaking FOUTS, not foust!!! 🙂
Me 2012-07-15 19:01:41
good choices .. I had forgotten about Keyshawn (Mr “he’s a flashlight and
I’m a star”). Any team with him on the roster has to provide him with two
lockers .. one regular, and a spare to hold his ego. I remember a game
against the Colts where he was ‘wired’ to give sound to the TV network and
the entire game he was dissin Marvin Harrison, who is one of the few who
realize it’s hard to play with your mouth open all the time yappin about
how great you are …
I notice that almost all of everyone’s choices in this thread are guys
who’s egos outplay their abilities .. makes me want to start giving out an
annual award to the guy who has the highest opinion of himself. My vote
going into the season is Terrell Owens.
Me 2012-07-15 19:01:43
lol .. tooo funny .. I pointed out his spelling errors and in the same
post, repeated most of them, and came up with a few of my own (Tyrell Owens
etc). My bad … groan.
Brad 2012-07-15 19:01:55
I read a couple post saying that Warner and Couch were the most overrated
Qb’s but I personally think that McNabb is the most over rated qb. He just
had the good fortune of getting drafted by a very good team. Couch has had
no O line or running game to help him. How could anyone say that Warner is
overrated? During his hay day he was one of the best passers that I have
ever witnessed. His throws were picture perfect and nearly always to a spot
so the receiver could keep running full speed.
Me 2012-07-15 19:02:09
well .. look at what you say regarding warner .. you used words like
“During his day ..” and “His throws were ..” .. all past tense .. his being
overrated was mostly during the past few years when he was mostly just a
reputation and not a force to be dealt with. Regarding Couch, he’s another
example of a draft day bust, but may do better on a good team .. only time
will tell .. but lots of first-draft-choice QBs have gone to bad teams and
picked them up and made them competitive .. Couch didn’t do that .. hence
the overrated tag. BTW, I didn’t list either of them myself .. I don’t
consider someone who’s past his prime like Warner to be overrated .. I just
consider them to be past their prime …
