Who is the Most Popular NFL Player (Nominations) in General NFL Talk Posted March 1, 2015 Well it's the offseason, and that means it's time to rejuvenate the board with some ridiculous contests. Normally we go through and have a best players, or a top 100 topic or something, but I've decided to change it up. If someone else wants to start one of those up, that'd still be really cool. However I'm going to start this up, the most popular active players topic. I'm thinking I can do this as an X man single elimination tournament but I'll still accept any nominations even if we end up with a weird number because of it. So here are the nomination rules: 1. You may nominate up to 50 active players. If they retired this offseason or end up retiring you can still include them. There is no limit to how many players on a single team you can nominate. 2. The number of nominations will help with seeding, so if you like a guy and see he's already been nominated, go ahead and nominate him again. 3. That should be pretty straightforward, we don't need more rules. I'll let this go for a week or so, depending on when activity dies down. You can post reasoning for your nominations if you like, it's up to you. Here are mine for the moment. I may have more later which I'll edit in. 1. Russell Wilson (Seahawks) 2. Von Miller (Broncos) 3. Eddie Lacy (Packers) 4. Aaron Rodgers (Packers) 5. Demaryius Thomas (Broncos) 6. Frank Gore (49ers) 7. Chris Harris (Broncos) 8. Charles Woodson (Raiders) 9. Jordy Nelson (Packers) 10. Antonio Brown (Steelers) 11. J.J Watt (Texans) 12. Marshal Yanda (Ravens) 13. Geno Atkins (Bengals) 14. Brent Grimes (Dolphins) 15. Kam Chancellor (Seahawks) 16. Earl Thomas (Seahawks) 17. Larry Fitzgerald (Cardinals) 18. Calais Campbell (Cardinals) 19. Chris Long (Rams) 20. Thomas Davis (Panthers) 21. Eli Manning (Giants) 22. Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants) 23. Chris Borland (49ers) 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. One notable I would suggest is Andre Johnson - been around the league for years and does a TON of community work and is a well known philanthropist. Is arguably the most popular Texan of all.
