Default Pete Prisco's Top 50 Current Football Players

I thought id draw Steeler-nation's attention to another 'power ranking' from the talented sports journalist Prisco.

Quote:
Top 10.

1. Peyton Manning, QB, Indianapolis Colts: You'd be hard-pressed to find people -- outside the Boston area, that is -- who would argue about him owning this spot now.

2. Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots: He's just a hair behind Manning. Look out now, though, with all those receivers on the roster. This could be a special year for Brady.

3. LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, San Diego Chargers: He's a sensational all-round weapon. If he plays long enough, he might break all the rushing records.

4. Champ Bailey, CB, Denver Broncos: He is the best defensive player in the league. You can compare him to Deion Sanders, which is high praise.

5. Carson Palmer, QB, Cincinnati Bengals: It took him a little while to get going after the knee injury, but he had another big year. He's right below Manning and Brady.

6. Walter Jones, T, Seattle Seahawks: You can always count on this guy to play at a Pro Bowl level. He's on his way to the Hall of Fame.

7. Chad Johnson, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: Along with Palmer, they make up the best of the young pass-catching duos in the league. Johnson really elevated his game in the second half of the 2006 season.

8. Shawne Merriman, LB, San Diego Chargers: Getting 17 sacks in 12 games is dominance. He comes off the edge with force. Is the sack record possible? You bet.

9. Julius Peppers, DE, Carolina Panthers: He's only 27, which means he's just now reaching his peak. He has the tools to be a 16-sack guy every year. He can also play the run.

10. Brian Urlacher, LB, Chicago Bears: A few years ago, he was more reputation than production. Not anymore. He is now a dominant middle linebacker.
What you guys will probably notice (pretty quickly) is that there is no room for a single Pittsburgh player in the Top 50 - not even Troy Polamalu.

Although Pete does make room for two Bengals in the top 7!! (Carson and Chad)

More disrespect for the Steelers 2007 Revenge Tour!

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Kind of hard to believe Polomalu isn't in there. He is the best in the league at what he does, in my opinion.

Woo hoo! Nnamdi made it!

I'm suppose to believe that not 1 player on our roster is worth a top 50 in the league. I'm just taking a wild stab in the dark here on two things...

1. Prisco lost money on SB XL
2. Prisco hates the Steelers so bad he'd rather kiss a goat then admit they have talent

Sometimes I wonder why I even bother reading Prisco's junk...

The list is horrible, and that's not even counting the snub against Pittsburgh.

Andre Johnson ahead of Marvin Harrison and Torry Holt? Please -- Johnson is good, but he's got a long way to go before he can be called the second best receiver in the league. (And Ocho Cinco listed as the best? Bah!)

Where's Shaun Alexander? Was his injury so bad that Prisco doesn't feel like fawning all over him now?

And isn’t it odd that all of the Pro Bowl RBs (not counting Tiki, due to retirement) made it on the list, except for Fast Willie?

I could go on, but you get the point. ;p

Faneca, Polamalu, Parker and Hampton definitely deserved a spot.

Any list that like this that does not include Troy Polamalu,Alan Faneca,Willie Parker,or Casey Hampton is a complete joke.

You cannot tell me that Sean Taylor is a better saftey than Troy.Just look at the body of work!

Not to mention Marcus Stroud making the list over Casey Hampton.When's the last time Strud even played an entire 16-game season due to injuries?

Wow, what a joke...

Even if I was a fan of any other team, I would still say that Hines, Troy, Casey, and Willie should be somewhere on that list. Wow...this guy has to be be brownieland/whodeyland...
