I don't think any of those were actually born in Asia though.

I bet this wouldn't matter if he wasn't Asian.

RACIST! RACIST! RACIST!

But seriously, Anyone know if he's any good though? The article doesn't mention anything other than he was "Perhaps the premier kicker" at some chinese football camp.

Why? You probably can't come up with a few good reasons why?
And it's only your opinion that they're worthless. I'll decide if they're worthless or not.

And you're probably the one who gave me negative rep.

I can't tell because my cp is ****** up.

And I meant any Asian players from Asia.

Dude, this thread really is quite ordinary. It really did not deserve to go in the NFL Board. Maybe the Oakland team discussion, just maybe.

Better question, has there ever been any Chinese players in the NFL??? Their body structure is generally weaker and can't deal with the hits.

I think he's talking has there ever been an asian play FROM ASIA!.. Hines ward was the only guy on that list born in Asia.

In general they might be (I have no clue), but in general there shorter but have still produced Yao Ming.

Chris Gocong, the Eagles' starting SLB, is Asian, I think he's Phillipino but I'm not positive.

http://calpolynews.calpoly.edu/magazine/winter-06/photos/Gocong-helmets.jpg

He's gonna be a beast, 6'2" 263 pounds, had over 20 sacks his senior year in college (Div 1AA, and was a DE, but still impressive)

Yeh Sonny-Bill would be sick. He would still be playing college ball if he was in the states haha. There is heaps pf athletes in rugby league and union who would go alright in football.

It would take him years to learn the game and I still query whether he would have the ability. The fact that he is injury prone is not good either.

But on a positive note http://youtube.com/watch?v=pxP-lJC4b4Y&mode=related&search=

Well Sav Rocca is in camp with the Eagles and Mat McBriar played AFL growing up.

i think hes getting over his injury proneness, i think he used to be injured all the time cause he was just growing too fast for a 19 year old. hes only now growing into his body and is thus playing more consistently. and who cares if he cant get the intracacies down pat straight up, just keep lookin at those positives
