Comments from NFL players about this year's presidential race between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama:

``For an NFL player it's easy to say we want lower taxes, but I think there are a lot of people who say that really hasn't helped and maybe it's time for a change. Maybe we need to change something up and just try. It's tough. There are equal arguments on both sides.'' - New York Giants center Shaun O'Hara, who declined to state his preference.

``Most (athletes), I think, are probably more left-leaning, probably Democrats. My wife's family is pretty conservative and they were always telling me, 'Once you make it big, you're going to vote Republican.' And I say, 'I promise you, that will never happen.''' - New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita, an Obama supporter.

``I think a lot of guys on the team look at the tax implications of the election, I know I do. There are lot of things (Obama) is going to do that will affect us and the money we make. That has an overbearing effect on the players.'' - Giants punter Jeff Feagles, a McCain supporter.

``You know what, educated people vote for their ideals. Greedy people vote with their pockets. And that's all I have to say. You take it how you want it. If McCain holds ideals that I find that I particularly like, I'm going to vote for McCain. On the other hand if Barack has ideas that I like, I'm going to vote for Barack. So I'm not tipping my hand, but I think that I, as a high-earning American should pay my taxes and pay my fair share.'' - Buffalo Bills right tackle Langston Walker, who declined to state his preference.

``I'm always surprised when I'm talking to someone I consider to be more liberal, and then we're talking about money and everything changes. I don't say anything. I just scratch my head.'' - Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams, an Obama supporter.

``Now that I do make a Red State income, I'm definitely going Red State. It plays a big part in it, but not the total part. I think the politics coming up in this election, experience is really my biggest factor in this one. I've read some books on McCain, I've read some on Obama, and I just think (McCain) offers the country a good choice for someone who has experience in a lot of different matters.'' - Washington Redskins right tackle Jon Jansen.

``It is hard. We're all right in the middle. We all got family members that are not doing so well. Democrats would help them out, but Republicans would help us out.'' - Redskins defensive end Phillip Daniels, an Obama supporter.
