Lavar Arrington... He isn't better than Lewis, Urlacher or half of the other LB's in the league...
Surely you must be joking. To say that he isn't better than Lewis, ok, you can say that about everyone. Lewis is getting old but he's still THE best linebacker in the league. Arrington is one of the top 5 linebackers in the league. It's kind of unfair to compare him to middle linebackers like Lewis, Urlacher, Thomas, Wilson, and Spikes. He plays outside linebacker. DE and OLB though are almost the same thing except the OLB is walked away a little further and actually the OLB has to be better because he must be more versatile than the DE. Compare Arrington to guys like Gildon, Bulluck, Diggs, Boulware, etc. He's better than all these guys. If he played MLB, he'd probably be 2nd best behind Lewis. He's extremely fast, solid as a rock, and has great field awareness. There is no one in the league who's going to run him over either. I don't even like the guy since he's from Penn State. I just thought that statement was ludicrous. He's legitimately a top linebacker.
Ok, my list, anyone who plays for Baltimore and Cleveland, and New England guys are starting to tick me off. Brady's "gosh I don't know how we do it" attitude is irritating.

I hate all sorts of players from all different eras - normally it's whoever the QB is for the team that put the 49ers out of the playoffs...
I bet I could catch hell for it, but my most hated player right now is Brett Favre. Yes, he's good and everything, but I just think he gets super lucky in certain situations and manages to come out as the greatest player of all time.
Defensively, I would go Sapp and Ray Lewis since they both talk too much. I hate trash talking. I understand that it's part of the game, but I don't think it's necessary. Just level the guy (like both of them do often) and go on to the next play. The announcers and the media will hype you up enough, so don't get yourself in trouble trying to get more face time.
I don't really hate coaches, but I'm not liking Dennis Erickson right about now. The 49ers could have made the playoffs this year. I think he didn't address the kicker issue well enough (none of the three people brought in did anything), and it cost us at least 2 games.
