      It's really hard to pick just one. In the NFL right now, I think it has to be Brett Favre. When Favre retires, it will probably be Brady, unless Manning can get another SB trophy to back up the hype and the endorsements with even MORE hardware.

      All time, some guys who are definitely on the list of possibles:

      Montana

      Unitas

      Barry Sanders

      Lombardi

      Walsh

      Shula

      Jim Brown

      Jerry Rice

      Emmitt Smith

      Dan Marino

      Walter Payton

      Mike Ditka

        I think it changes. I think the latest era has been Tom Brady. The one before Brett Favre, Elway, Jerry Rice, Steve Young and the list goes on.

        There's no real "one" icon, maybe top 5 most recognizable players.

        Brady, Manning, Vick, Ray Lewis, Terrell Owens.

        Though the last three probably for as many bad reasons as good.

        I think that the big parity between AFC and NFC as far as a lot of coverage in some areas makes a difference too.

          It is very hard to have one defining icon in football because careers are so short in comparison to other sports. Baseball players can play 25 years, hockey easily 20, and basketball 20 in many cases. Football players cannot start their careers until 20 at best, and in many cases, it's 22 or 23. Playing 12 years becomes a long career in the NFL. You don't see many non-kicker/punters playing more than 15.

            I agree. I'd have to say in my area (Pittsburgh/Johnstown/Altoona, PA) it's all about Troy Polamalu, because of his hair.

            Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

                    I'd say Peyton Manning is the face of the NFL right now.

                      How many advertising campaigns and other media jobs has Peyton Manning done in the past 2 years?

                      If he's not the NFL's crowning Golden Boy I don't know who is.

                          NFL All Time-Madden (The games help) Seriously, IDK.

                          NFL Current-The Golden Boy Tom Brady

                          NBA All Time- Jordan (He redefined what BB is today)

                          MLB All Time-Babe Ruth easily

                          MLB Current- Jeter

                          NBA Current- Kobe (Although I hate him)

                            Manning, Brady, and Vick.


                            Just your most recognizable players.

                                Most recognizable on the field or in the walk-in clinic?
