    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

    http://top100.nfl.com/


    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.

    I agree that Manning doesn't belong in the top ten but he does belong ahead of Favre. As for Hourning, I don't know. But an even bigger travesty is leaving Derrick Thomas off the list entirely. 126 1/2 sacks as 7 in one game, the guy was a beast. And he only played 10 seasons. And I'm sorry but Marshall Faulk does not make this list. How he did ahead of Hourning and Thomas is beyond me.

    IF they were gonna rank Jim Brown that high, he should have been #1.

    And no Troy Polamalu? I love Kurt Warner, but they shoulda had Troy take that spot.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    As good as Polamalu is, he didn't accomplish nearly what Warner has. Warner is a 2 time NFL MVP and took 2 seemingly dead franchises to the Super Bowl, winning once and losing 2, with both losses having him putting his team in a position to win. Believe me, as a lifelong Cardinal fan, you do not take that team to the Super Bowl and not be considered a miracle worker. Not to mention that he went from bagging groceries to being a Super Bowl champ. Also, I don't think Troy has played enough to be considered yet. On the flip side, OJ Simpson should have been left completely off this list.

    For me, the top 20 players I saw play live, not on TV but saw play in person would look something like this, not in any particular order:

    1) Reggie White-Eagles
    2) Junior Seau-Chargers
    3) Wes Hopkins-Eagles
    4) Wilbert Montgomery-Eagles(I've seen a lot of Eagles games in my day)
    6) Jim Hart-Cardinals
    7) Eric Dickerson-Rams
    8) Joe Montana-49ers
    9) Jerry Rice-49ers
    10) Roy Green-Cardinals/Eagles
    11) Art Monk-Redskins
    12) Dan Marino-Dolphins
    13) Simeon Rice-Cardinals
    14) OJ Anderson-Cardinals
    15) Anthony Carter-Vikings
    16) Harold Carmichael-Eagles
    17) Ed "Too Tall" Jones-Cowboys
    18) Emmitt Smith-Cowboys
    19) Michael Irvin-Cowboys
    20) Neil Lomax-Cardinals

    Any list that does not include Barry Sanders in the top 5 is worthless.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    How can you possibly leave off Walter Payton?

    edit- I saw you said "play live, not on TV". Man, you missed out then.
