Robert Griffin III, Aaron Rodgers and the NFL's 10 Most Lethal Players

Lethal weapons produce the most impact.  Some of the impact is noticeable.  Other times the impact is subtle but just as forceful. While the most lethal weapons in the NFL need a little help from their friends, they are pretty darn great all by themselves.  Whether they sling the ball, run the ball, kick the ball or strip the ball, all the action is hardly every met by an opposite...
