    I think it would change slightly. It would still be a meaningless list though. I think a lot of people here could do better. But yeah, I think anytime you make a list like this with such a broad scope, you need to include some defined criteria in the header. If I were to go through the effort to do one, it would be based purely on my own perception of who I think are currently the best players. So stats wouldn't play a huge role. So I probably wouldn't have too many real young guys, or too many real old guys. Just the current cream of the crop. But I don't personally know enough about every guy in the league to make a real accurate list. I think that's why so many people end up leaning on stats and reputation. They simply haven't seen everybody play enough to accurately gauge where they all rank among each other.

      who has a no. 2 better then ward?....

        The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

        If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

            colts do (wayne), cards do (boldin), bengals do (housh),

            and they are old but an arguement could be made for

            cowboys (glenn) and rams (bruce).

            and by next year argueably jets (cotchery) and lions (CJ) could very easily be ahead of ward.

            like i said, hines is a solid WR. but by no means is he even a candidate for top 50.

              The fact that he is simply not as good as he tries to make himself out to be. He used to be a great player but he isn't the same guy anymore and everyone still acts like the's the best MLB in the game.

              Just watch him play. I think your a Raven's fan so I'm sure you do. I'm sure you've seen his favorite tactic of just hopping on the pile after the play is over. Then he gets us chest pounding like he made some great play.

              I'm just sick of him really. From all of his interviews about how good to his to his SI cover saying "God's linebacker". He is the most overrated player in the game.

              Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig

                wayne yes
                boldin yes
                but the rest of the guys no...and to bring up calvin johnson who hasnt even stepped on the field yet is ignorant...and despite what u or cbs sportsline says...ive seen multiple interviews over the past couple years where NFL PLAYERS AND COACHES say that hines ward is THE BEST alll around reciever in the game....now ill agree wayne and boldin are probley better pass catchers but as far as a football player and doing everything that has to be done...catching and blocking...hines ward is definatly one of the tops in the league

                    99.5% of the people on this board admit Urlacher is better

                    I am preety sure they call him Gods LB because he is religious person and not making it out like he is a LB god.

                      Marvin Harrison and Steve Smith are both better than Andre Johnson. Torry Holt is too. Nothing against Andre, but those are both better players.

                        i agree with that but imo if andre had consistant qb play hed be the best in the league

                              Lions had a beast duo before Calvin

                              Furrey: 98 catches 1086 yards 6 TDs

                              pretty good for a guy not ROY WILLIAMS on the lions

                                Disappointing to not see any Packers on there. I would definitely have included Aaron Kampman. Kampman had 10 more sacks last year then Dwight Freeney, who is 12 on that list, so I'm surprised he isn't anywhere in the top 50.
