Amazing. You and I agree on two of three. Brett is one of my two or three favorite players ever. There ar many guys who fit the bill in this category.
Baseball:Barry Larkin, Paul O'Neill, John Smoltz, Darren Daulton(pre-insanity), Derek Jeter, Joe Morgan, and Roger Clemens.
Football: Brett Favre, Marvin Harrison, Walter Payton, Matt Millen, Fred Biletnikoff, Ray Lewis, Mike Webster, and Darren Woodson.
Basketball: Charles Oakley, Tim Hardaway, Derek Harper, Mario Elie, Avery Johnson, Dan Roundfield, and both Terry Porters.
These lists are in no way exhaustive, they're just the first guys who came to mind.
