    Can we get some specific guidelines? Rank them in order of best to worst? Assign them Madden-style ratings? Compare them against other players at their position across the league?

    Sounds like a fun discussion.

    Im sorry I should have given an example.

    Here I go

    1. Rodgers
    2. Matthews
    3. Williams
    4. Jennings
    5. Collins
    6. Woodson
    7. Raji
    8. Finley
    9. Clifton
    10. Shields
    11. Grant

    Just an example. Go as far down the roster as you want but it gets reeeeeeal hard at about 10 I think.

    1)Rodgers
    2)Matthews
    3)Woodson
    4)Raji
    5)Williams
    6)Jennings
    7)Collins
    8.) Sitton
    9)Finley
    10)Clifton
    11)Nelson

    Went back and forth between Raji and Williams a lot. I like Raji a lot and feel he is very underrated for what he does so had to go with BJ there.
    I take it this is based on next season and i can't put Grant on the list until he shows he can do something after the injury.
    After this it would probably be between Hawk, Bishop, and Grant.

    It depends. Rank them by importance?

    If so, Woodson is ahead of Tramon Williams.

    But rank them by how good they are? Williams is better than Woodson right now.

    Another example, I would rank Clifton ahead of Sitton based on importance, but Sitton ahead based on quality.

    To be honest, I think people are underrating Finley (Maybe because of the injuries) ... He brings a mismatch to every game and is almost unstoppable with Rodgers. Proven? No. Naturally gifted physically and pure talent? Yes.

    1. Aaron Rodgers
    2. Clay Matthews
    3. Jermichael Finley
    4. Greg Jennings
    5. Josh Sitton
    6. Charles Woodson
    7. Tramon Williams
    8. Nick Collins
    9. Josh Sitton
    10. B.J. Raji
    11. Cullen Jenkins (If he remains on the team)
    12. A.J. Hawk
    13. Chad Clifton
    14. Desmond Bishop
    15. Ryan Grant
    16. James Jones
    17. Jordy Nelson
    18. Scott Wells
    19. Ryan Pickett
    20. Bryan Bulaga
    21. Sam Shields
    22. Donald Driver
    23. James Starks
    24. Nick Barnett (If on team and would be higher if younger)
    25. Daryn Colledge
    26. Matt Flynn
    27. Brandon Jackson
    28. Morgan Burnett
    29. Brandon Chillar
    30. Mark Tauscher
    31. Korey Hall
    32. Mike Neal
    33. John Kuhn
    34. Erik Walden
    35. Charlie Peprah
    36. Tim Masthay
    37. Jarrett Bush
    38. Mason Crosby
    39. Brad Jones

    41. T.J. Lang
    42. Frank Zombo
    43.Howard Green
    44. Quinn Johnson
    45. Jason Spitz
    46. Atari Bigby (Probably Could be higher)
    47. Tom Crabtree
    48. Pat Lee
    49. C. J. Wilson
    50. Brett Swain
    51. Spencer Havner
    52. Jarius Wynn
    53. Robert Francois
    54. Graham Harrel
    55. Brett Goode (Another role player that could be higher)
    56. Nick McDonald
    57. Brandon Underwood
    58. Matt Wilhelm
    59. Diryal Briggs
    60. Evan Dietrich-Smith

    Well done and I agree with Sitton at about 9, where you have him (although Raji is better).... but you also list Sitton at 5, and I suspect you meant someone else.

    CJ Wilson is going to get a lot higher on that list in time......

    Overall I rank them "Pretty Damn Good" or PDG.

    I think it's hard to compare positions. So I'll just say the top 10 (in no particular order) that jump to mind are.. Drum roll please.

    Aaron "Mister" Rodgers
    Clay "The Predator, hunt you down and put your skull in his collection of alien skulls in his spaceship" Matthews
    Greg "Put the team on his back" Jennings
    Jermichael "OMG, he's got stickum for hands" Finley
    Charles "In Charge" Woodson
    Tramon "Earning the money" Williams
    Nick "To the house" Collins
    Donald "Mr. Clutch" Driver
    Raji "Like a G-6" Raji
    A.J. "Playing like he means it" Hawk
