Shutdown Corner - NFL

Brees to visit ‘Sesame Street.’ What if NFL players were characters?

Drew Brees will appear on an upcoming episode of "Sesame Street." The New Orleans Saints quarterback filmed the segment in April and discussed his experience at a news conference this week.

This got us thinking, if "Sesame Street" characters were NFL players or coaches, who would they be? Brees seems nice enough to be one of the cast of human characters on the show, maybe Mr. Hooper. But what of the others?

Unibrows, huggable interim coaches, massive widow's peaks and the dual meanings of "It's Not Easy Being Green" made this easier than you'd think.
