    A few surprises in PFF's Top 5s, imo:

    Good stuff in there. I would rank Atlanta as teh best receiving corp in the NFL. Roddy White is a steady superstar. Julio Jones has incredible weeks and Tony Gonzalez has found the fountain of youth

    I disagree with their assessment of our D line. We don't have a true NT because we're not a true 3-4. Our NT only has 1 gap. We're more of a 5-2. Even so, good to see that our team is getting recognition. Watt is a big reason our D line is where it is. I'm hoping we see more from Barwin and Antonio Smith in the next few weeks.

    If barwin was playing even mediocre, the texans d-line would be talked about around the league. According to PFF rankings he is the leagues worst 3-4 OLB out of 28 players. He has a -10.3 ranking. The next worst guy is O'Brien Schofield (AZ) -6.9.

    I disagree that Manning isn't a stand out player at safety. Maybe that's the homer in me but I feel like he at least deserved a mention when talking about defensive backs.
