so the last of the NFL Top 100 was released tonight. All I can say is that this complete list has some issues and I don't agree with some of them

NFL Rank Fans Rank Name Position Team First Year Status Career Watch
1 1 Rice, Jerry WR 49ers 1985 18 seasons
2 9 Brown, Jim FB Browns 1957 9 seasons
3 12 Taylor, Lawrence LB Giants 1981 13 seasons
4 2 Montana, Joe QB 49ers 1979 12 seasons
5 3 Payton, Walter RB Bears 1975 13 seasons
6 14 Unitas, Johnny QB Colts 1955 seasons
7 11 White, Reggie DE Eagles 1984 seasons
8 5 Manning, Peyton QB Colts 1998 Active 11 seasons
9 - Hutson, Don WR Packers 1935 seasons
10 18 Butkus, Dick LB Bears 1965 9 seasons

Peyton Manning does NOT belong on the top 10 of all time, not ahead of Favre, Brady, Otto Graham, Elway or Marnio. He deserves top 25, but not top 10.


Paul Hourning, who played 4 positions and was the all time leading single season scorer till Tomlinson broke it in 4 more games than LT, was left off this list as were any number of great players. Not a big fan of Jerry Rice being #1 and think that Don Hutson deserved top 5 ranking.
