On a past podcast the questions of "who is your most hated player on another team" came up. There were some interesting answer ranging from Romo to Brooking to even current Redskin Neil Rackers (who was not a Skin at the time). But the question today is, who is the individual who torments the Redskins the most on another team (save the Grossman and Gano jokes)? Here are some names that immediately come to mind for me:

DeSean Jackson: Does anyone outside of Eagles fans like DJax? The stank still stands in my mouth from that Monday night massacre and has more to do with Jackson than Michael Vick. Jackson is a guy you just love to hate.

Sean Lee: Kind of outside of the box but Sean Lee seems to be a guy that will be tormenting Redskins fans for awhile. He plays the right way, is quiet, and goes about his business. He's the anti-Keith Brooking. Lee will have Redskins' fans gritting their teeth quietly muttering "that guy!".

Jason Pierre-Paul: It seems like Osi Umenyiora used to hold the Giants title of "Skins tormentor" and with age Osi has passed the torch to JPP. In his two years in the league Pierre-Paul has sacked the Skins QB 5 times and this year alone he was in on 21 tackles against the Skins.

Toby Gerhart: Some how this guy continually gives the Skins trouble, even more so then Joe Webb. In two games Gerhart has rushed for 185 yards and a TD versus the Skins.

Romo/Witten: I feel like this two Cabo lovebirds are a combo. They always seem to come and torment the Redskins late in games. I'm pretty sure Witten is going to Canton for the number of stiff arms to the face Redskins defensive backs have taken from him.

I'm sure I'm missing plenty of guys. Who are the players around the league you love to hate?
