Vima and Colston are obvious candidates. Both are standouts on the field and are looked to for leadership. Another that probably doesn't immediately spring to mind but who should be in the conversation is Zach Strief. He came in as an unknown 7th rd pick and carved out a nice career playing along the line and performing well when called on. Now he's the undisputed starter at RT and a team leader. He's also active in the community and is highly respected by his team mates and coaches. Guys like this who don't necessarily have greatest talent but manage to hang with the big boys on determination and craftsmanship deserve nothing but respect.

ever notice the organization doesn't sign "T.O's" or "Ochocinco" type players?

well, maybe a joe horn now and then, but you get the idea...

there you have it... a team built on character.

sure, humanity dictates that a joe morgan falls off the wagon, but that doesn't mean the entire organization is designed around a higher standard.

perhaps i'm biased. damn straight.
We have not RECENTLY - Joe Horn was a little like those guy.

PLUS - ever notice how its normally a WR who acts like a douche nozzle??

I suppose fandom is a pretty broad concept. Let's just say that I have people who pay attention to some of the things I do and say, though their motives are not clear about why. Employees excepted, of course. Any leveraged relationship cannot, by definition, be a true fan.

I would have to say Colston and Vilma. They are all business.

Shanle comes to mind. He never had great physical Tools for an NFL player, he is a freak among ordinary people. But worked hard and made plays and kept his roster spot against all competition up until this year.
