    The Packers That Are In Top 100

    Using the site NFL The Top 100 NFL Players of 2011 which lets you vote who your top 10 is using the official top 100 list, I found out all the Packers that are in the Top 100... I went through each player about 10 times so it should be accurate. The Packers in the Top 100 are...

    Raji
    Matthews
    Finley
    Collins
    Jennings
    Rodgers
    Woodson
    Williams
    Clifton

    No love for Sitton I guess! Also, I found others like T.O, Ochocinco, McNabb, Delmas (a db on the Lions), both wrs Maclin and Jackson on the Eagles, Felix Jones, Mark Sanchez and others.. I hope thats a rough draft of the 100 players list and hopefully they still have to make cuts for the list.

    I don't think that is accurate. I was also thinking about that, but strange names like Tim Tebow appeared, and IIRC it appeared on the NFL Network that only 2 rookies from last year, Mike Williams and Ndamukong Suh, would appear in the top 100.

    I thought I read 7 packers were on the list. That might be wrong though, I didnt check that.

    I'm doing the voting where it randomly matches up two players and has you select the better player. Most recent matchup: LaDainian Tomlinson vs. Tramon Williams

    Tomlinson - 61%
    Williams - 39%

    What the?

    For the most part, it seems to be a popularity contest. Whoever has the bigger name wins the matchup. For instance, Brian Waters, one of the best guards in the NFL, loses almost all of his matchups.

    Ya. I almost choke when I see Collins lose by 2 Percent to Mayo on the Patriots or Jennings almost lose to Pouncey!

    Mayo is a pretty good linebacker but yeah, I'd take Collins over him. And Jennings is definitely better than Pouncey.

    That's correct. NFL Network had a preview show for this Top 100 thing and that was one of the factoids. Most of any team in the league.

    Also from that: Aaron Rodgers is number 11.

    Voted on by the players, starts today at 8pm

    They had a sneak peek, and Rodgers was voted #11

    Not sure if players voted before the season or when, but Packers had the most of any team with 7 players in the top 100 players of 2011

    So if there are only 7 people in the list and 6 that we know for sure are clifton, collins, rodgers, raji, matthews, and woodson, who is left out?

    I'm not really feelin Rodgers being ranked 11th, I think he should be in the top 10, easy.

    7 Packers in the top 100 is good! I can live with that!

    It must be interesting for the players to see what their peers, even teammates think of them and how they rank.

    I'm always curious with these lists... I would like to know who voted, how many votes they got and if it's an open ballet, meaning you can choose anybody, or if there were a specific selection of players to vote for. This should be interesting. I wonder how many players will keep it in the house, Packers voting for other Packers or if they vote for players from other teams.

    I think you hit the nail right on the head. It may turn into a popularity contest. Looking at the results and percentiles of votes, it seems insane. Pouncey Vs Jennings? Come on man!

    I'm happy for the 7 Packers who made it in, but to be really honest, there should of been more.

    /well lets see who is top 10 before saying it is wrong for Rodgers to be 11th

    But in 3 years to be ranked at 11 is pretty outstanding

    Flacco is 89th

    They voted november 2010. Seven Packers in top 100 - JSOnline

    Personally, I can't find 10 players better than Rodgers. I also can't fathom Eric Berry being a better player than Nick Collins.

    They don't disclosure how it's voted, so it's not valid IMHO. But it's good for discussion.

    The adrian Wilson selection surprised me as did the Babin selection. Id be lying if I said I didnt go "WHO?".

    I understand Collins wants the love but its never easy when the safety conversation consist of two names.

    I was impressed Shaun O Hara (Giants center) did the piece on BJ Raji. It was nice to see a veteran give Raji accolades about the player he has become.

    It's nice to see that we had the most players on that list.
