As you know, in the game of football it’s a lot about teamwork. But, there are some players that are being considered to be dominating the field, and even the best players of all time were scared when they came across them.
Here we list the top 3 scariest players of all time:
Scariest Football Player #1. John Lynch.
John Lynch was part of the dominating Super Bowl-winning Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense back in 2003. You can remember him as one of the hardest hitting safety in the league.
Future Hall of Fame Antonio Gates even admitted: “I simply refused to run the routes in certain parts of the field because I knew John Lynch might be there waiting for me…”
Therefore, you would recognize him as the most respected players to ever play the game of football, and a four-time finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Scariest Football Player #2. Bruce Smith.
Smith was the cornerstone of the Bills’ defense in the early 1990s. Also, he haunted quarterbacks every play on the field, and he ended his career with over 200 total sacks, the most in NFL history.
One teammate of Bruce Smith, Fred Smerlas, once said “There are good players, very good players, great players, exceptional players, and ridiculous players. Bruce is a ridiculous player.”
Eventually, Smith balanced the rewards of his successful working life, continuing his achievement in numerous charitable endeavors.
Scariest Football Player #3. James Harrison.
You would recognize him as the two-time Super Bowl champion, and five-time Pro Bowler. James Harrison named as one of the best pass rushers of his time. He was known for his incredibly hard hits and his relentless pass-rushing techniques.
He holds a record as a defensive player of the year back in 2008 after a season with 101 tackles, 16 sacks, and seven forced fumbles. That’s not even the scariest thing about him, he even does 1,120-pound leg presses and posts them to his Instagram account routinely.
