NFL Top 100 Players

Stafford #31.

Did a quick search and didn't see any other Lions from 100-31. Top 30 hasn't been revealed as of yet. Couldn't find a way to directly link the video, but below is a link to all the videos so far. Nice little video on Stafford, some quotes from other players. Focuses on arm strength, comebacks and how he improved last year.

Side note: JJ Watt isn't a fan of this list. Referred to it as a Joke after being voted #35 despite only playing 3 games last year.

I would agree that it's a joke to have Watt #35....he should be higher

I hate these lists. Do they really have to do them every freakin' season.. Watt btw should be higher, regardless the 3 games. I don't think they say the list is based on last season only.. And how could they anyway since players don't see many of these guys every year.. How do they vote? Many who voted for Brady, or Watt or even Matt never saw them last season - so how do they know how good they were? And no offense to you faithful but Matt at 31? Yeah I don't think so..

Nobody cares wtf you think though. Or anyone for that matter. The NFL PLAYERS disagree with you and it's so awesome lol. He's respected around the league as a top notch player and it eats you up lol.

Of course he should be. He should be top 10 probably. He missed the season and still gets mentioned in the 100 BEST? That speaks volumes about the respect they have for him.

So how do they vote for him, or anyone for that matter? "Well I never saw him play but his stats says he's 31." Lol. Watt even says it's a joke.. He played 3 games and based on a list that ranks guys by the year how did they determine he was the 35th best player last season.. The players don't know shit.. They vote for their buddies..

It's like the MLB All Star game where fans vote for their own players..

What does that have to do with anything? I'm saying the list sucks, Watt apparently agrees with my assessment.. Because he felt 35 for 3 games was way too high..

I was just curious if you have any kind of ranking. U certainly have a ranking for Matt as a QB...don't you?

The rankings are just for fun and conversation.
