So we got two of the top ten players from last year. Not bad.

So there are people that actually think Dennis Pitta or Jacoby Jones are Top 20 guys?

Yeah I'm not buying that either. I know Jacoby Jones was pretty instrumental in their playoff run but he was basically what he was when he was on the Texans (Of course, without fumbling any crucial punts, naturally).

I think it's still a work in progress right now. The players are probably still figuring out how their votes made up the top 100. I think the list is 80% reasonable.

It's definitely good for sparking off-season conversation which I believe was the main purpose.

I'm happy. I guess, I would have ranked him above Megatron, but probably below Rodgers, so all is good.

Because if Matt Schaub was on the list, he wouldn't have anything to prove next year.

This way, the full power of the Schaub shall be unveiled in all its magnificent glory! Beware, NFL, the Schaub is coming! And he's coming for you!

Dalton was not on the list this year

Anyone notice Arian's comment towards Sapp after he made the meat remark? Arian was asked why he thought he rose up the chart this year, Sapp pops off "cuz he quit eatin meat". Arian quickly says "you need to quit eatin meat". Kinda funny

Arian also began saying he didn't like lists or rankings. Music started playing in the background like they were going to cut him off if he continued raggin on the list. But, he started talking up the players, the music stopped

It was just classic Arian, man. Funny stuff and totally agree with him. It's all about TV and entertainment

yep. It's really just a popularity contest. And I'm not completely convinced that the list is truly 100% players. I would not be surprised if NFL Network suits take the players poll and then manipulate the final list to fit their agendas.
