Sports Business Daily is out with its list of the most marketable players in the NFL and one thing is perfectly clear from a quick look at the list: quarterback is still the glamor position of the NFL. Four out of the top five members of the list, and six out of the top ten, are QBs led by Peyton Manning in an overwhelming vote. Manning received nearly 52% of the first place votes to Tom Brady's 34%. The third place finisher and only non-Qb in the top five is rookie running back Reggie Bush.

Vince who?
I wasn't 100% convinced about taking Bush because there had been no talk of him coming to NO, but thank God I'm not in charge because I wanted Vince. But, in the end, the right choice was made and with Reggie's dedication to making a difference charitably in whatever city he went to, it was fate because what area needs charity right now more than NOLA? But if everything goes the way it's supposed to and Reggie is already #3, imagine how sick we'll be of seeing his face EVERYWHERE by next year! You have to love Peyton; but after the Manning Bowl, if I never see another Manning family member, it'll be too soon. (Besides, just WHEN is Peyton going to make it to the Super Bowl?!?)

NFL's Bush, Top Rookie Endorser, Scores $5 Million in Contracts

By Curtis Eichelberger

Sept. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Good looks, a Heisman Trophy and an attention-grabbing running style have combined to bring New Orleans Saints rookie Reggie Bush a record $5 million in endorsements from PepsiCo Inc., General Motors Corp., Adidas AG and Subway Restaurants.

If he is as successful on the field as he has been with advertisers, Bush's outside income may soon rival that of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, the National Football League endorsements leader with more than $10 million a year.

``He's the best rookie endorser ever, No. 1 in history,'' said Scott Becher, 43, president of Sports & Sponsorships, a consulting firm in Coral Gables, Florida. ``From an off-the-field standpoint, it's been pretty incredible. And I think it's going to get even better.''
