NFL Players get paid plenty, but they also perform a pretty dangerous task, all for fan enjoyment. So if a player wants to run his mouth after spending three hours breaking his body so that there's actually something good on TV on a Sunday night, he's somewhat entitled.
Of course, it never hurts to back those words up. That's the case in any arena, but it's especially true of football, where the results are divided into two columns and then posted publicly around the world. If you're winning, you can get away with talking. If you're losing, you can talk your way out of playing.
These five players aren't in any real danger of losing playing time, but they could still stand to do their talking on the field with touchdowns and wins instead of on a camera with excuses and charades.
