In today's NFL, players, more so superstar players are what fans come to see. No more is the game a team game, it's more of a game to come and see hard hitting, drama, and superstars. Guys like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Ray Lewis and other "stars" are now what makes the game. With that said, it does not shock me in the least to see certain players coming out and calling out their teams. Maurice Jones-Drew says that his team, the Jags, went away from the running game too quick in the teams 41-0 beating in Seattle last week. He's the face of that team, and nothing is going to happen due to his talent and the fact that if Jones-Drew is benched, it hurts the chance of the Jags winning in a big way.

Players know that teams will have a hard time sitting superstars if they question their team. That's why teams like the Redskins, who are rotting from the head down, and Oakland, who always seem to have drama, don't win on a consistent basis. It's superstars .
