Debating The Top 100 NFL Players Of All Time List
Top NFL Players of All Time
Ok, Because I am bored on a Sunday afternoon during the summer, I thought that the NFL fans of ATS might want to get their Football fix by discussing
the insanity of the latest list of the top NFL players of all time. As the saying goes, well my saying anyway, there are only two seasons, The NFL
season and waiting for the NFL season. Let's do it.
So, Let's start with the top 10, cause I probably won't take this past the top 50 as far as discussion goes, but who knows. I am going to start by
saying that I agree with number 1# Jerry Rice, and number 2# Jim Brown.
Now, I must say that even though I am a die hard 49er fan, My heart is not fully committed to Jerry having the number 1# spot because I believe that
running backs take more of a beating than wide receivers do and Jim Brown did so much in a shorter career and a shorter football season, but if we
question that then it brings in the fact that a lot of defensive players are taking a lot of abuse as well. So I am just going to play the judges game
here with their own list.
I have to say that I have a serious problem with Lawrence Taylor being number 3# of all time, though a QB killing machine, to have him before Reggie
White (7#) is not of this world. Taylor played 13 seasons and White 17. How long a player's body can withstand the brutal world of the NFL says a lot,
just as much as if they obtain the same high number of sacks but while playing a less amount of time. we have no choice but to consider both in this
arena here.I'll add to my top 10 discussion later.
However, One thing that would make it much easier on everyone is if they just would make a top 100 offensive players, a top 100 defensive players, a
top 100 special teams players, a top 100 practice squad players (LMAO! Just kidding with that one) and a top 100 kickers of all time. Well, maybe a
top 10 or 20 kickers of all time. LMAO!
Thoughts? Eventually I will give my top 50 ect, but I want to hear what you guys think about their top 10 thus far? Do you like it, would you change
it, and if so what would you change? This thread may drift on for months until the NFL season, so no time table here, if you're bored like I was
today, post away. Best wishes ~$heopleNation
