NFLN survey/feared player: Packers
By Rob Demovsky
NFL players, by their very nature, are largely fearless. So it wasn’t a huge surprise that when several Green Bay Packers players were asked which NFL player they feared most, the response was the same.
“I don’t fear anyone,” a few of them said.
But that wasn’t going to work for our NFL Nation confidential survey (more of which will be revealed as the month leading up to the Super Bowl goes on).
It should come as no surprise, especially to those who play in the NFC North, that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh topped the league-wide list in this category.
But feared doesn’t have to mean dirty, which is why some players in the Packers’ locker room selected running back Adrian Peterson.
Among the other names suggested for this category by Packers players were Lions receiver Calvin Johnson, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather and Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen.
