    Croats/Serbs In The NFL – Mandarich, Marinovich, Belichick, Etc.? Croats have left their mark in every sports… Joe Sakic in the NHL, Pistol Pete in the NBA, Roger Maris in MLB, so now I stop at the NFL, something I don’t watch or play, and I ask you fans who is the most significant Croat/Serb to have played in the NFL

    Nick Saban and Bill Belichick are both Croatian-Americans. Brian Billick is also Croatian-American, coached the ravens to a superbowl win

    Tony Mandarich leaves his mark, with his early 2nd overall pick in the 1989 draft.
    Elvis Grbac is a Croatian-American.
    Todd Marinovich, child prodigy, who fell into drugs and never made it (24th pick overall)
    Mike Mamula, Serbian-American, 7th pick overall (2005)
    Filip Filipovic? Serbian-native, played for the Cowboys I believe
    David Diehl – half Croatian, very proud of his roots
    John Jurkovic, german-born Croat
    Chris Zorich, half-black, half-Croat
    Frank Sinkwich – 1944 MVP
    Joe Kuharich – coached in the NFL, in the 1950s
    Joe Kuharich – played for the cardinals, late 30s early 40s
    Mike Golic – another Ohio Yugo

    so which one stands out the most, who is our Legend from the NFL

    Best O-line In The NFL (excluding New Orleans)? I cut out the Saints, because they’re the best. No way around it, they are incredible. The two best guards in the league (my opinion), a Pro Bowl center, a Pro Bowl tackle, and another tackle that still can hold his own.
    I have narrowed it down a bit, and here’s what I’ve got.
    The Giants (Chris Snee and David Diehl are the only two I can name. But I enjoy watching their games, and the other 3 aren’t slouches)
    The Vikings (Yes, it’s aging. But still one of the best in league)
    The Browns (No, Joe Thomas is NOT their only good lineman. Eric Steinbach, Alex Mack, and Floyd Womack are all great at run-blocking, and they drafted a right tackle this year)
    The Jets (My choice. D’Brickashaw Fergusson, Nick Mangold, Damien Woody. The guards aren’t as well known (at least not by me), but they’re still good.)

    It Appears Mr. Obama Is Not As Popular In Europe As They Want Us To Believe? Is Anyone Else Surprised By This? From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign Relations

    Quote:

    “Let me be clear: I’m not normally in favor of boycotts, and I love the
    American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious
    snobby sneers against the United States . But the American people chose to
    elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something
    must be done to stop Obama’s reckless foreign policy, before he does the
    dirty on his allies on every issue.”

    One of the most poorly kept secrets in Washington is President Obama’s
    animosity toward Great Britain , presumably because of what he regards as its
    sins while ruling Kenya (1895-1963).

    One of Barack Hussein Obama’s first acts as president was to return to
    Britain a bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since
    9/11. He followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his first
    state visit, the usual joint press conference with flags.

    The president was “too tired” to grant the leader of America ‘s closest
    ally a proper welcome, his aides told British journalists.

    Mr. Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts for Mr. Brown and the Queen.
    Columnist Ian Martin described his behavior as “rudeness personified. ”
    There was more rudeness in store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the
    United Nations in September. “The prime minister was forced to dash through
    the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face time with
    President Obama after five requests for a sit down meeting were rejected
    by the White House,” said London Telegraph columnist David Hughes. Mr.
    Obama’s “churlishness is unforgivable,” Mr. Hughes said.

    The administration went beyond snubs and slights last week when Secretary
    of State Hillary Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine President
    Cristina Kirchner, a Hugo Chavez ally, for mediation of Argentina ‘s specious
    claim to the Falkland Islands , a British dependency since 1833. The people who
    live in the Falklands, who speak English, want nothing to do with
    Argentina . When, in 1982, an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the
    Falklands by force, the British — with strong support from President Ronald
    Reagan — expelled them.

    “It is truly shocking that Barack Obama has decided to disregard our
    shared history,” wrote Telegraph columnist Toby Young. “Does Britain ‘s
    friendship really mean so little to him?” One could ask, does the friendship of
    anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?

    “I recently asked several senior administration officials, separately, to
    name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has forged a strong personal
    relationship during his first year in office,” wrote Jackson Diehl, deputy
    editorial page editor of the Washington Post, on Monday. “A lot of hemming
    and hawing ensued.” One official named French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but
    his contempt for Mr. Obama is an open secret. Another named German
    Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said Mr. Diehl, “Merkel too has been conspicuously
    cool toward Obama.”

    Mr. Obama certainly doesn’t care about the Poles and Czechs, whom he has
    betrayed on missile defense. Honduras and Israel also can attest that he’s
    been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful friend. Ironically, our relations
    with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have never been worse.
    Russia has offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama’s abandonment of missile
    defense. Russia and China won’t support serious sanctions on Iran . Syria ‘s
    support for terrorism has not diminished despite efforts to normalize
    diplomatic relations. The reclusive military dictatorship that runs Burma has
    responded to our efforts at “engagement” by deepening its ties to North Korea
    .

    And the Chinese make little effort to disguise their contempt for him.

    For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States is
    actually distrusted by its allies and not in the least feared by its
    adversaries. Nor is Mr. Obama now respected by the majority of Americans.
    Understandably focused on the dismal economy and Mr. Obama’s relentless efforts to
    nationalize and socialize health care, Americans apparently have yet to
    notice his dismal performance and lack of respect in the world community.
    They soon will.

    –London Daily Telegraph editor — Alex Singleton
