NFL All Time-Madden (The games help) Seriously, IDK.

NFL Current-The Golden Boy Tom Brady

NBA All Time- Jordan (He redefined what BB is today)

MLB All Time-Babe Ruth easily

MLB Current- Jeter

NBA Current- Kobe (Although I hate him)

Right now, I'd say the faces of the NFL would be


Manning, Brady, and Vick.


Just your most recognizable players.

It should be LT. He's probably the best player since Jim Brown. But unlike Manning he doesnt do a ton of commericals. He had like 1or2 on NFLN

It should be LT but because he's only got small exposure compared to some players it'll be harder for him.

Well, seeing as how the question pertains to "icon" and not "recognizable" I will chose to ignore the "recognizable" part.

Vick is an icon to dog fighters, not the NFL.

Roger Clemens? Are you kidding me? Greg Maddux is 10 times the pitcher he is, without a doubt. If you want to call anyone the modern day Cy Young, it's Greg Maddux. The only reason Clemens name is in the news is because he is with the Yankees.

MLB "Icons" - Current - Pujols, Mauer, Arod, Bonds, Jeter, Griffey Jr., Randy Johnson, Ortiz, Manny, the Young Mets (Wright and Reyes), and so on.
MLB Past "Icons" - Pete Rose, Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, the Babe, Nolan Ryan, Lou Gerhig, Joe Dimaggio, ect.

Too bad Cy Young is the most overrated pitcher of all-time. Explain to me how you can pitch in 900 something games and not get 3000 strikeouts. Walter Johnson was twice the pitcher Young was.

Brett Farve is not even close to being the Icon of present day NFL, much less of All Time.

Current - LT, Peyton, Brady, Champ Bailey, Ed Reed, Shaun Alexander, and many more. It pretty much just depends on where you live. Right now, in Louisiana, Reggie, Deuce, Drew are all Icons, along with every LSU player on the roster.

Past - JOE MONTANA, Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Walter Payton, Joe Namath, the original LT, ect.

This isn't because I live in Green Bay or cheer for the Packers, but Brett Favre has to be it. If there's a player in the league that the majority of people can relate with and take in it is Brett. Brett is a hard-nosed southern boy from Mississippi. He plays the game of football like a kid and has a genuine enthusiasm for the game. He's faced the personal lows that many fans can relate whether it's losing a family member or having a family member go through a devastating disease. Favre may not eat up the TV like Manning but most people gravitate to Favre because he is them.

When i think of sports right now...

MLB - Jeter, Bonds, ARod, and Pujols
NFL - Manning, Brady, Vick, and Chad Johnson (He beat a horse)
NHL - Ovechkin or Crosby
NBA - Kobe, Wade, or LBJ

People took this to a broader scale then I would thought. I was asking for a one significant figure for the sports whole lifetime. Basketball is MJ, Baseball is Ruth, but question is does football have this figure, this legend. and people come up here with Reggie Bush? WTF

Manning as of right now

Of all-time... Jerry Rice, simply because I believe that non-football enthusiast see him as a reconziable face.

Although who could forget the "Gee Thanks Mean Joe" commercial.
