Faces of the Franchise


Despite the ratings decline, the National Football League (NFL) is an American institution.


Many fans refuse to leave their homes on Sundays during the fall.  


Furthermore, the Monday after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday because most will be running on fumes from the night before.


Like it or not, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers are NFL royalty.


And the lowly Houston Texans, Detroit Lions and the latest reincarnation of the Cleveland Browns fight every year for respectability, let alone a Super Bowl title.


Despite the struggles of some NFL teams, all teams have had standout athletes to wear their colors.


Therefore, RegalMag.com would like to honor the best player in history from each of the 32 NFL teams.
