Ndamukong Suh and Calvin Johnson finished first and second in ESPN.com’s query of 320 players across the league asking which player is the most feared in the NFL. Suh received 61 votes (19 percent). Johnson received 58 votes. The next five vote-getters: Houston defensive end J.J. Watt (24), San Francisco linebacker Patrick Willis (23), Denver quarterback Peyton Manning (21), Cincinnati linebacker James Harrison(18) and Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson (16).
Detroit has the two most feared players in the league and still couldn’t make it to the playoffs. The Lions should have been better. They should have won the division. They should have cruised into the playoffs.
