Spin-off of the NBA version and pathetic list from NFL Network.

With the downtime and season not too far off, thought it might be interesting to see forum's ranking of top players heading into next yr and what discussion comes from it. Might also be harder to do. I'm not sure how far I'll go with it. But I will pull the plug if it don't go over so well. Vote realistically.

Votes for #8 and #9
Arian Foster 4
Justin Smith 3
DeMarcus Ware 2
Cam Newton 1
Julius Peppers 1
Peyton Manning 1
Jason Pierre Paul 1
Rob Gronkowski 1

Top Players in NFL for 2012
#1. QB Aaron Rodgers
#2. QB Tom Brady
#3. QB Drew Brees
#4. WR Calvin Johnson
#5. ILB Patrick Willis
#6. CB Darrelle Revis
#7. DL Haloti Ngata
#8. RB Arian Foster
#9. DL Justin Smith

Re: Top Players in NFL for 2012 - #10

So we just forgive 7-8 years of mediocre play from Justin Smith and make him a top 10 player in the league over guys who have performed year in and year out since they got into the league?

DeMarcus Ware gets my vote.

I agree, ridiculous. Niners fans tilted it.

Disagree that Justin Smith hasn't performed year in and year out. He's been an elite defender against the run for years and a consistantly above average pass rusher. Last year was a career year, but he was easily the best 3-4 defensive lineman in the league, including Ngata.

Larry Fitzgerald gets my vote at #10.

My top 10:
1. Aaron Rodgers
2. Tom Brady
3. Drew Brees
4. Calvin Johnson
5. Patrick Willis
6. Larry Fitzgerald
7. Haloti Ngata
8. Justin Smith
9. Jason Peters
10.Demarcus Ware

Since ware is going to win this whih i am ok with i am going to throw out my one homer pick and thats charles woodson. One of the most versitale players in the league can cover, defend the run and get to the quarterback. The guy is a flat out playmaker and deserves sone consideration in the spots coming up

Oh please. He's past it. Clay Matthews and Greg Jennings deserve it more IMO and I actually don't even think Jennings is as good as people think.

Nevermind that choice anyway. I totally forgot he ruptured his achilles. He's probably not even playing in 2012.
