NFLN survey/feared player: Eagles

January, 9, 2014

When asking members of the Philadelphia Eagles about the most feared player in the NFL, the initial reaction was the same: "We don't fear anybody."

The secondary reaction was divided. Some players took it to mean the nastiest, toughest player. Others took it to mean the most difficult to defend against. Based on that initial reaction -- not fearing anyone -- more players went with the latter interpretation.

So there was one vote for Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, but three for Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson. There were votes for Peyton Manning (two), Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers -- players feared because they might break an opponent's heart, not because they might stomp on his head.
