2. Ricky Watters, 49ers/Eagles/Seahawks
"For who? For what?" Never have words hurt a players' legacy more than those four words hurt Ricky Watters’s. Despite the fact that he played smashmouth football for most of his career, taking a play off in Philadelphia is a mortal sin, and Eagles fans never let him, or the world, forget those words after he alligator-armed a pass at the end of a blowout loss. It's too bad, because Watters is one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. He is 20th all-time in all-time yards from scrimmage, squeezed between two guys you might have heard of named Randy Moss and Jim Brown. And that doesn't include the 1,117 yards from scrimmage he racked up in 11 postseason games. In his only Super Bowl appearance, he had over 100 total yards and hit paydirt three times. If you want to judge him because he said four words that hurt your feelings, then maybe you should be watching soap operas instead of football. Watters should be in the Hall.—Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
