My Top-100 Players in the NFL

I am doing a list of the top-100 NFL players, in my opinion of course, for my blog, and here is my initial copy. I just wanted to see what type of reaction it gets, and who better to test it out on than the most knowledgeable set of fans I know.


I did try to not overdo the QBs and skill position guys. I even got it to 50 offense, 50 defense. I also knocked players if they are old and unlikely to keep up their pace (Brett Favre), or if they are coming off major injuries (Welker, Daniels, Odom, Kampman, others). Also, I tried to do this as unbiased as possible, and the Colts still got the most players on the top-100, with 8.
