I thought it would've been Cushing at that place.

Anyone know how many Texans made the list? I would have expected JJ to be much lower in the rankings. At least top 50.

I would have guessed Cushing, Brown, JJ, AJ, and Foster to make the list for sure. Then Watt & Barwin having an outside chance of sneaking in. With JJ making the list so high, I'm starting to have my doubts now.

Cushing may not make it at all, I don't think he's very popular with his peers and this is a popularity contest, you know.

Myers will be on it. AJ will be there, but likely much lower than last year because of the time missed due to injury.

Before the list came out, I would have given Barwin and/or Watt and outside chance at being on it (this is a list of the 100 best right now - not a career evaluation), but while I could see either one being in the top 100, I'm not sure I see them in the top 70.

This list is a joke if Cushing doesn't make it. That Tebow is on it, makes it pretty much a joke already.

Joe Flacco @74? I don't think his teammates even voted for him.

Right on. I can't believe Tebow's there. If Cush don't make it it is indeed a joke. And a bad one at that.

Cushing will make it for sure. He had an outstanding year, even Ray Lewis was pumping him up before our playoff game. He's also been part of their highlight montage they were showing before episode one, I doubt they put him in there without him being on the list.

No way in hell is he a better QB than Schaub, but I doubt Matt makes the cut.

I guess it just goes to show that players can be just as stupid as fans.

It is ridiculous, but you have to keep in mind that this list is JUST for last season, so its the Top 100 players of 2011-2012. I can see Matt not making it due to not playing the full year while Tebowmania blew up last season.

If Tebow is on the list, his peers must think he makes a difference. It's their opinion ya know.

Agreed, and doesn't he? Not really a Tebow-fanatic, but I've gotten over my dislike of him. Were all the wins really because of him? No, but he inspired his team to fight harder for the win. I'd much rather have Orton over Tebow, but I can understand why Tebow is on the list.

Tebow was a more effective player for that team last season than Orton was.

Denver's defense caused them to lose more than what Orton did. Though, you have a point, it could've been Tebow that inspired both sides of the ball to play better football, thus turning them into a better team.

It's the players making the list, not writers and fans, so I'm thinking it's probably a more accurate list on the who's who in playerdom last year.

I don't like Tebow either, in fact I'm sick of him. But if his peers put him on the list, then he deserves to be there.
