Top Ten Douchebags In The NFL…

Since there hasn’t been a whole lot of exciting news going around in the NFL, I decided to write about something that I have been meaning to get off my chest. Throughout the 2007-2008 season in the NFL, there were just a few douchebags that just couldn’t stay under the radar, so here, I have made a list. In no particular order, I give you Aaron Gershfield’s list of Top Ten Douchebags in the NFL throughout the year 2007.

Sure some of these guys may have tore it up on the field, but beyond their play, they did things that not only reaffirmed just how much of a tool they are, but they also reached new levels when it came to being a selfish jackass.

10. Michael Vick

Aaron Gershfield Top Ten - Michael Vick (Mike Vick: a champion in the dogfighting world.)

Michael Vick was a douchebag in the year 2007 for two reasons: a) for being an immature and selfish jackass that blew a $100 million dollar contract, and b) for spreading his stupidity that caused people to promote dogfighting, play race cards, and use terms such as “Hip-Hop Quarterback.” But most importantly, Vick was (or still is) a doucehbag for singlehandedly ruining a franchise, forcing the Falcons organization to enter a rebuilding process.

9. Ricky Williams

Aaron Gershfield Top Ten - Ricky Williams (Ricky Williams wondering where his career went.)

Coming from suspension after violating the NFL’s drug policies, Ricky Williams returned on a Monday Night Football Game that gave him a chance to cement his return as the amazing running back he once was. But instead, he failed to show that he was a better and stronger player as he rushed for less than 20 yards and ended up tearing his pectorial muscle. I understand that the injury was unavoidable, nevertheless Williams makes this list for being a fragile, pot-smoking douchebag.

8. Philip Rivers

Aaron Gershfield Top Ten - Philip Rivers (This is Philip Rivers being a classy guy.)

In the 2007 season, it seemed that Philip Rivers established himself as the king of smack talk of all QBs. In a game against the Denver Broncos, Rivers was caught on tape stepping out on to the field just to talk trash to Jay Cutler after the Denver offense failed to convert on a fourth down play. There’s nothing that screams douchebag more when the guy talking jive is someone that hasn’t done much to help his team. Rivers should just keep his mouth shut and focus on winning a Super Bowl ring just like the other QBs in his draft class like Big Ben and Eli Manning.

7 . Tiki Barber

Tiki Barber has always been a douchebag. Even before Super Bowl winning coach Tom Coughlin came to NY, Tiki was a fumbling tool. But now that he’s retired, he’s a bigger ass. He went from record-breaking running back, to boring and unimportant television broadcaster. He now spends his days criticizing former teammates, making guest appearances in lames show like “Project Runway,” and crying himself to sleep as everyone he knows (former teammates and twin brother, Ronde) now hold something that he’ll never have, a Super Bowl ring.

6. Reggie Bush

With a mediocre season, fumbling the ball 7 times and having registered only 6 touchdowns (4 rushing, 2 receiving), Reggie Bush failed to prove that that he’s an every down back. Everyone was hoping to see Bush as a human highlight reel right when Deuce McAllister went down, but instead everyone saw Reggie split carries with no names that showed promise, like Aaron Stecker– who suddenly became a fantasy football option. And to make things worse, off the field Reggie Bush has been nothing but idiot– he’s dating LA socialite/ bimbo Kim Kardashian, and he still has his NCAA issues where his tarnished Heisman might just get taken away from him.

5. Keyshawn Johnson

Keyshawn Johnson makes this list of douchebags simply because his true self as “Bill Parcell’s #1 dick rider” came out when he got into an exchange of words with Terrell Owens. Watch the video below to see how passionate he was in defending his former coach.

4. Wes Welker

(Wes Welker, you’re not black. You were never in Omega Psi Phi.)

All season lomg, Wes Welker played his role well as the free agent steal and the clutch slot receiver. But following a Monday Night game, Welker’s true colors as a douchebag came out during an interview Andrea Kremer interview. During the post game interview, Kremer was snubbed by Welker on her last question abruptly as he excused himself when he heard Belichick calling out to him. Wes Welker= Whipped douchebag.

3. Tony Romo

Tony Romo is a douchebag for being that guy that just can’t take anything seriously. Instead of taking the extra time to prepare for the playoffs, he spent his free time vacationing with everyone’s favorite bimbo, Jessica Simpson. He could’ve been studying film to avoid getting knocked out in the divisional round, he could’ve practiced more plays with T.O., but instead he decided to “take it easy” by lounging around in Mexico. Now that it’s the offseason, and he can go back to Mexico just like the time the Super Bowl was around the corner.

2. Bill Belichick

I don’t even know where to begin. Cutoff sleeves, spygate scandal, destroyed tapes, unsportsmanlike post game interaction with other coaches… Belichick emits nothing but douchebaggery with his sketchy ways. Everyone should be rocking an 18-1 shirt to immortalize all the “hard work” the Patriots had put into shaping themselves as a “good” team.

1. Bobby Petrino

aaron gershfield -- top ten in the nfl bobby petrino (The first eunuch to ever coach an NFL team.)

In his first (and last year) in the NFL as a head coach, Bobby Petrino was a douchebag for doing everything wrong. Though he didn’t communicate clearly with his players, and sure he didn’t recognize the legitimate starters, as he went through a stable of quarterbacks and kept the unproductive Warrick Dunn as starting running back, Petrino committed the most selfish and cowardly act anybody can do in sports: he had quit before the end of the season. There is nothing honorable or even the slightest bit respectable about this guy. Bobby Petrino should never be allowed back in the NFL for quitting in the middle of a season. Check out the video below, and hear what people are saying about the coach that wasn’t man enough to hack it in the pros.
