The ferocious, violent nature of professional football isn’t compatible for pacifists and good Samaritans, but fear not moralists; the NFL does have some good guys.
The most notable good guy to don an NFL jersey in recent history is the now, perhaps permanently, unemployed Tim Tebow. So, with America’s favorite son no longer in the NFL, who is our new morally rich good guy?
A "good guy" is a player who exudes excellence both on and off the field. He doesn’t stomp on opponents or berate journalists in postgame interviews, nor does he get arrested or forget his children’s names.
Instead, good guys work in their communities, establish charities and possess the charming characteristics that endear them to their fans.
With a strew of NFL players making headlines this offseason for various indecencies, it seems as good a time as ever to applaud the good guys of the NFL.
