The game of football is the most popular sport in America. It's played by youth, it's played by families on Thanksgivings', it's played by professionals, it's played by college students, high-schoolers, and it's played by legends. Legends made the NFL what it is today, legends made the game of football what it is today, legends made football popular for children across America, legends still sell jerseys with their names on them today, legends, plain and simple, make football what it is today.

This slide-show is about the greatest players to play each position in NFL history. In this list, I will create an all-time NFL team. We'll start at Quarterback and end at punter. There will be plenty of legends on this list, but also maybe even some active players.
I welcome your comments and suggestions. Without further ado, let's begin.
Some players may not appear at their position or be in honorable mention, as they may appear as a Kick Returner or other special teams player.
