It started after the top 10 of NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2011 were counted down on Sunday, and the network announced the results from the fan poll along with player voting.

The fans ranked Clay Matthews as the fifth-best player in the NFL. I personally think this is way too high also, but that is besides the point. Here is what Roddy said on Twitter:

The fans put clay Mathews at 5 wow don't they know he like the 5th best pass rusher in the league

"@ClayMatthews52: Let sleeping dogs lie" yeah @roddywhiteTV ; )


Is this a huge scandal or what? 

No, but I thought it was funny and worth sharing. Look for a little extra drama in the Green Bay, Atlanta match up this year.

No. 5 or not, If I were Roddy White, I may stay away from the slant pattern.


Happy Fourth of July, Americans!
