Lots of good guys mentioned. Favre, Henry, and Emmit are up there for me.

But I think Leftwich could challenge for toughest NFL player someday. Heck, that hit he took last week was nothing compared do when his linemen had to carry him during a comeback drive in college. No matter what happens in Leftwich's career, after that moment the "tough" label went on him permanently.

I remember seeing a Countdown story on Leftwich about how he got hit by a car while he was playing streetball as a kid and bounced right up and kept playing :-o

Not only the hit that bent his body all around but a couple plays later he got DESTROYED by 2 guys while completing a long pass down the left side to j.smith and just layed there for a sec. then his lineman helped him up and he kept going like it wasn't a big deal. He is super bad-ass.

Yeah, I thought he was done when I saw it.

There was a colts player on the back of his leg and another one hitting him in the back so his leg was already in a bad position when a colts player came from the front and hit him in the chest.

I couldn't beleive he wasn't injured severely..

But he definitely earned some gamer respect for that. Reminds me of the QB toughness McNair has.

I remember seeing footage of that. Im not sure how bad his ankle was, but imagine trying to run the two-minute drill without being able to take mroe than a few steps? Lord Byron is one tough MoFo.

Hines Ward seems like a tough gritty player...always smiling too


I dont actually think this guys is tough BUT if Dave Carr makes it through the whole season with the beating he has taken the 1st 2 weeks ill consider him an NFL tough guy (if not benched first)

Jack Youngblood Played Super Bowl XIV on a broken leg, and back in the late '70's I can only imagine what the "treatment" was. (Tape and some painkillers.)

Lefty's a bad**s, no doubt. Emmitt was another (that game against the Giants where he had the seperated shoulder and had like 160 was just unbelievable to watch.)

Football Players. Gotta Love 'Em. ;-D

I'm probably the last guy to ever consider nominating a baseball player for toughest anything but that Red Sox pitcher with the bloody ankle from last years Series comes to mind - even if he's not a football player that guy seems like a tough SOB to me...

Carr definitely gets my respect for the beatings he has taken the past 3 years+ and I feel bad for the guy because he will probably have trouble breathing (nevermind walking) when he gets older from the abuse his body is taking now...
