I'm bringing the conversation back. It's not fantasy football or the excitement of an NFL game, but what it is, is fun. I took a look at all 32 NFL franchises over a year ago and assessed who their current "face of the franchise," was deciding which star player on their team best represented the organization.
The criteria for this list is simple: You have to be productive, and you have to be well known. Also, subjectively, of course, you have to carry the make-up and demeanor that best represents the franchise in question.
In addition, the true "face of the franchise" is ultimately the player fans generally first think of when discussing their favorite teams. In the end, without this player, these NFL teams just wouldn't be the same.
We jump back into the discussion with the 16 AFC squads first, listing the winner for the 2010 Face of the Franchise, as well as the next best guy in line, as an honorable mention.
Note: This list is conducted for the 2010 season, and while it can include arguments and rationalization for players over the course of their careers, this list will only include players currently playing in the NFL and currently on the respective teams.
