Irrational Favorites

Recommended Posts

Obviously this makes sense now, but I was weirdly attached to Julian Edelman when he was nothing but a JAG who had a good punt return in his rookie pre-season. Also liked Jacob Hollister, and even though I have no love for the Seahawks, it warms my heart when I see him make his 2 catches per game.

In terms of non-Pats players I always felt sorry for depth guys trapped behind legends or otherwise limited by their depth charts/system. I felt bad for Chester Taylor, because I genuinely think he had the talent to be a featured back but never got his shot, and Lance Moore (Saints WR) had the ability to be a regular 1000 yard guy, but injuries and the Saints glut of targets held him back.

Jim Leonard.

Played like 10 snaps a game and always seemed to snag an INT. 

 

Love that guy. Great player and now an even better coach.

I always thought Muhsin Muhammad was incredible. Maybe better than he actually was but I credit that to Madden 2005.

I'm very biased, but I believe you're correct.  So much of what he did was not on the stat sheet, be it his blocking or opening things up for Steve Smith.  Not to mention he'd catch anything remotely close to him.  He was also amazing in 2k5.

Not my team but I irrationally liked Marion Barber he was my favorite running back ever lol. I just loved how hard he ran.

I'm with you.  The Barbarian was fun to watch.

 

I know the timing is suspect after last night, but I'm adding Cordarrelle Patterson to my list.  Wherever he plays, whenever he touches the ball it just feels like something big could happen.  I love that feeling.

That's why it was cool to see Michael Turner finally get his shot at the lead dog role after 4 years of being stuck (rightfully so) behind LT. Straight beasts for a season, and had a few more really good seasons rushing the ball (one unfortunately cut short due to injury).

Imagine if he was getting that workload for the first 4 seasons of his career.

Kirk Cousins

 

From the Pats it was Logan Ryan and Chris Hogan.

I'm shocked he never became anything at wr loved him at tennessee I wonder if Shenault pans out fits that mold imo

He would have been top of my list if not for his Atlanta years. I loved seeing him get a shot.

James Harrison. Despite him murdering every QB of ours he faced. 
 

also Antonio brown. He’s like the nfls Kanye. He’s insane but still amazing.

Been a big defender of Dan Sorensen over the years around here, too.

He’s a very good bad player, tbh. Always seems to be around the ball.

Hawk Davis will always be one of my favorite Rams. User god in madden and when Hekker threw to him on fake punts it felt automatic. Cody "Hawk" Davis will always have a special place in my heart.
