Who are some former Bears, Packers, Lions and even Buccaneers that you miss watching, even if you don't miss seeing the Vikings go up against them?


Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila - One of my favorite pass rushers that I can remember watching. Nobody had a first step like KGB, and he holds the Packers career sack record. It is a shame his career was so short, and he was cut to make room for Justin Harrell.

Olin Kreutz - One of the better offensive lineman of the last two decades. He was the rock in the middle of the Bears from 1998 - 2010. I would sit through an entire games while watching only Kreutz work the inside of the line.

Antonio Freeman - Perhaps one of the most forgotten, under-rated receivers of the last 15 years, as well as a very good kick and punt returner. I'm sure every one remembers this play:

Joey Harrington - Although Harrington flamed out and never lived up to his potential, I always had a soft spot for Joey. Most people think of him as a total bust, but he actually ranks third all-time in Detroit history in pass completions, with 986 (although that says more about the Lions than it does about Harrington...).

Mike Alstott - In my opinion Mike Alstott was the last of the true great fullbacks. Known for his famous super tall shoulder pads and incredible power, Mike is one of my all-time favorite NFL palyers. He was also one of the few players in the last 30 years to play his entire 10+ year career with one team.

HMs: Barry Sanders, Warren Sapp, Brett Favre, Derrick Brooks

Not a single Packer, Lion or Bear that I miss watching. I'm too young to have watched the likes of Reggie White, Sterling Sharpe, or Barry Sanders.

I did enjoy watching John Lynch, Derrick Brooks, and Warren Sapp. That defense was so much fun to watch.

Mike McKenzie and Al Harris were favorites of mine when I first started watching football. They complimented each other well, and were phyiscal, agressive corners.

EDIT: I forgot Darren Sharper. He is one of my favorite players of all time. He was the one of the best rovers safeties to play the game.

I greatly respected both Reggie White and Brett Favre while members of the Packers.

Barry Sanders was a treat to watch in Detroit.

WD-40 made 2 RB system work before it became popular in the past decade.

I honestly can't think of any Bears right now

Sharper, Favre, and Ahman Green come to my mind. I really can't think of anyone else.

Leroy Butler, Barry Sanders and Mike Brown were all exciting players to watch.

and its not even close.

I never liked Greenbay, but Brett was just so much fun to watch. He was great.

Other than that, Nate Burleson for the Lions (who still might be on the team Laughing ) and the fake Adrian Peterson for the Bears.

Favre was a treat to watch, even if you wanted him to lose

Alstott was a beast, I feel like I saw a photo of him recently and he still looked beefier than most FB's in the league

I was only 5 or 6 years old, but my earliest memories of watching NFC North/Central football were watching Sterling Sharpe. I still think that he was one of the greatest players to play in the division, and it was a terrible thing to watch an injury end a great career.

I also enjoyed watching Herman Moore and Curtis Conway. I was very fond of receivers growing up Laughing My preferences have now changed to watching lineman and linebackers, but the division was full of great receivers in the 90s.

As far as the Bucs go, who didn't love watching Alstott, Brooks, Sapp etc? I also liked to watch Simeon Rice, even though he was only in the division one year.

The Minister of Defense and Berry Sanders for me.

I'll miss Urlacher when hes gone. Dude is a straight stud, and acts like a guy I'd like to have a beer with.
