The NFL Network has invested a sizable chunk of money, production hours and broadcast time to their series of the Top 100 Players in the NFL, voted on by the players.
We love the show, but there's an obvious bias and lack of information at hand for players to vote for their peers.
What are NFL players doing on Sunday? They're at work and are not able to see more than highlights of the other games happening during that same time. When the players do see film of their peers it's in a cut-up form and generally offensive players only see the opposing defense. Tom Brady doesn't see much of Peyton Manning.
With that in mind we've taken the task of composing our own top 100 for 2011.
How were the players ranked? Much like the NFL Network list this is purely one man's opinion. Each player was "graded" on their previous production, age, injury history and their potential for 2011.
