Roughest toughest most intimidating bosses
When you play in the NFL, you're not really playing that much at all, are you? As we approach the end of another season, we at Bleacher Report felt it was a good time to look back and recall some of the men that have made this league what it is.Football at that level isn't so much a game or a sport as it is a battle. They are the giants whose shoulders today's greats stand on.Here is a list of 25 of the legendary gladiators of the gridiron.Think what you will of the way Favre has ended his career, but the fact is, he was one of the toughest quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL.Everyone knows of all the records he holds, including the most yards, most completions and the most touchdowns of all-time, as well as his record streak of 297 consecutive starts.
Steve Young played from 1985 to 1999, and made his name as Joe Montana's replacement as the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers.He was named to seven Pro Bowls, was a first team All-Pro three times and led the Niners to a win in Super Bowl XXIX.He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005.Young was one of the most mobile QBs in NFL history and was never afraid to scramble for those few extra yards.That fearlessness led to a number of hard hits and concussions, which may have ended his career prematurely.
