Top Five Scariest Players in the NFL Right Now

No matter how old Ray Lewis is he'll still scare and intimidate any NFL player.

You counted your candy and you took off your costume as Halloween is now officially over until next year, but what if I were to tell you that five NFL players rather it’s Halloween or not will still scare the socks right off of you. So without any introduction, here are the five scariest players in the NFL right now.

5. Tom Brady- Six time Pro Bowler, three time Super Bowl Champion, and two time M.V.P. Tom Brady is by far one of the most feared quarterbacks in the game. Not only is his presence of what he’s capable of doing scary enough but his emotion and horrific glare that he shows to the opposing team as it seems as if nothing can stop him or intimidate him in any way makes him clearly one of the most feared players to play against when his team shows up on the schedule.

4. Darrelle Revis- If it’s not scary enough for you that Darralle Revis has his own “island” as people call it because when he plays against opposing wide receivers he takes them completely out of the game, isn’t scary enough for you then I don’t know what is. Andre Johnson, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, Reggie Wayne, Vincent Jackson, Randy Moss, Steve Smith, Roddy White, Marques Closton, all just few of the players that Revis has shutdown in his career and has made them almost invisible when they went up against him. He’s the best and he shows no signs of letting up as each game ends in the same story and the same result of teams not throwing the ball to his side as they fear that he’ll intercept it, swat it down, or even worse return it for a touchdown.

3.Calvin Johnson- Nicknamed “Megatron” from the character from Transformers due to his rare combination of size, hands, speed, strength, leaping ability, body control and hand–eye coordination Calvin Johnson is hands down the best wide receiver in the NFL. Currently third in receiving yards at 804 behind Carolina Steve Smith (918) and New England Wes Welker (824) and leading every receiver and running back in touchdowns with 11, Calvin Johnson is proving to everybody and everyone that he’s clearly the leagues best. Rather it’s a streak route, zig zag, double team, triple team, or a jump ball, just throw the ball in his area and chances are number 81, Calvin Johnon is coming down with it.

2. Ndamukong Suh- Ndamukong Suh makes quarterbacks, running backs, and offensive lineman cringe in fear when they see him lined up against them. They cringe in fear because not only will he just get by you or tackle you but he may even hurt you and the best part about it, is that he doesn’t care…not one bit. With complaint after complaint and comment after comment from all various players that Suh plays to hard and that he hurts players on purpose says it right there alone, that he’s a scary player. But when a player says and thinks that he’s not even human, that’s even scarier; “I’m just a different breed. I hate to say that, but it’s kind of like, no athlete in the NFL is like any other person. You can’t treat everybody the same exact way,” Suh told ESPN.

1. Ray Lewis- Ray Lewis lives, breathes, and eats football. It’s everything to him and his 12 time Pro Bowl appearances, two time defensive player of the year awards, and his Super Bowl ring shows that. Though he doesn’t care about all of those luxuries as he only cares about one thing; winning and he’ll do anything to get it even if that involves tackling his own mother to win it will happen and he doesn’t care about what you think, the opposing team thinks, or I what I think. He’ll hit you, he’ll abuse you, he’ll make you cry, and he’ll scare you. From the pre-game dance, to the leader in the huddle, to the rest of the yelling and screaming, Ray Lewis even at age 36 is still the most feared player in the NFL.

Andre Johnson May Miss Up To Five Weeks Or More With His Injury

He may be out longer

Andre Johnson caught his fourth pass of the game on Sunday and began running to gain more yards until without being tackled he collapsed by himself. Watching him hit the ground fans, fantasy owners, coaches, and players held their breaths. At first glance and even with replay the fall that Johnson had definitely showed an injury but even worse; a torn ACL or MCL.

That’s what it looked like at the first couple glances, however luckily for Johnson and the Houston Texans organization after several tests and an MRI they would find out that it wasn’t a torn ACL or MCL and that Johnson would return this season. The question was; how long?

The injury would be revealed as a hamstring injury and that Johnson would have to undergo surgery and the recovery time would be two to three weeks. Though more reports would come out later saying that Johnson did have surgery and that he was going to be healthy within three weeks and that the target date is October 30th week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However nothings certain as unfortunately setbacks can happen especially with hamstring injuries, just ask his teammate Arian Foster.

Foster who has been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury all season long has finally appeared to have overcame it after his last week performance of 155 yards and a touchdown off of 30 carries.

The injury took about over five weeks total to recover from for Foster and who knows it may not even be fully healed. So for Johnson a two to three week time table is just an educated guess.

Facing the facts and looking at reality the injury will probably last about four to five weeks until Johnson is fully recovered, at least that would be the smart approach. Though we can’t compare this injury to Foster’s because we don’t know if there similar, yes they are both hamstring injuries but they could be different tears that are/were in them.

Now if Johnson was to take the same approach as Foster and post a picture of his MRI up on twitter too then we would know. But as of right now @Johnson80 hasn’t posted any MRI’s or any tweets at all.

Expected Recovery Time: Five weeks; putting a target date for their game against Cleveland or Tampa Bay. But with a week 11 bye the Texans could take the safe approach and hold him out an extra week. But sitting at 3-1 and tied for first place in their division the Texans are fine for now but depending on how their next couple games go, they might have to rush their star player back as soon as possible.
