Jim Brown, Tom Brady among best offensive players I've seen

I have seen a lot of football over the years. In fact, I can say that I've probably seen every top player in the NFL since about 1959 or so, whether at the combine, during workouts or in training camp. And seeing a player in person can really leave an impression on you.

Inspired by NFL Network's "Top 100 Players of 2016," I thought I'd go back over all the players I've watched in person and compile a list of the best offensive players I've ever seen.

This is not meant to be a definitive, all-time-best list; it is entirely subjective and reflects my personal opinions based largely on what I've witnessed with my own eyes. As with any list of this sort, many notable names were left out -- not because I've overlooked them, but because they just didn't crack the lineup.

Below is my list of the best offensive players I've seen, presented in reverse order.
