The best NFL commercials feature a player many NFL fans have probably never heard of

Turn on your TV during NFL season and you are likely to see popular NFL players pitching products. Eli Manning, Tony Romo, Russell Wilson, J.J. Watt, Peyton Manning and many others are currently starring in an array of commercials from everything from insurance to sports drinks.

Many of those commercials are decent and even good, but spokesperson roles are typically limited to quarterbacks or other major stars. Never do you see a relatively unknown backup player star in a national campaign. Saints backup quarterback Luke McCown has changed the game.

Not only is McCown paving new ground for backup quarterbacks everywhere, but those commercials are actually pretty great. And they gave us this.

Watch out, Brees. McCown is coming for your job and your endorsements.
