Default ESPN's Top 200 Players List

Anyone seen this atrocity? It's worse than you can possibly imagine. Some of the most funny things I saw:

1. Champ Bailey ranked the same as Nnamdi Asomugha (92.)
2. Shaun Rogers and Walter Jones tied for #18 (with Julius Peppers, Mario Williams.)
3. Adrian Peterson tied for...31st best player?
4. Chad Ochocinco as an 85, ahead of Calvin Johnson, Michael Turner, Asante Samuel, etc.
5. Matt Cassel ranked the same as Eli Manning, Anquan Boldin, Jordan Gross.
6. Mike Vrabel tied with Wes Welker, Vince Wilfork, Darrelle Revis, Kurt Warner, and Ray Lewis, ahead of people like Jerod Mayo, Trent Cole, etc.
7. Darren McFadden/Felix Jones ranked the same as Philip Rivers (77), who's worse than Joe Flacco?

The whole list is terrible, but it must be seen to be believed. You have to have Insider, though.

How did the rank the players? What was the criteria? It sounds like horrible Madden rankings.

I hate ESPN. I really thought someone was creative calling it E!SPN. It may have been on this site, I think it was.

I thought they made this list a couple of years ago?

When I had insider at one point, I remember seeing Bailey high, but I think Manning or Brady was #1.

If this is current though, then that is pretty ridiculous...Nnamdi is one of the best players in the league, let alone, the best cornerback (hands down). I don't buy into ESPN lists too much...they are pretty biased to begin with.

Anquan Boldin ranked the same as Matt Cassel is just stupid, Boldin has been one of the toughest receivers for years and he hasn't got any worse. Cassel has one good year and hes as good as Boldin?

See what they did there? Clever eh?

Unfortunately they ran into trouble later when ranking TO when noone could agree on the numerical value for 'asshole.'

Ranking threads are always stupid. I'm hiding from this one.

This is Scouts Inc's evaluation of each player in the league. Some are good and some are really, really bad. This year they have Ware as the best overall player in the league.

I'm not sure who they have running the show, but they never seem to know what they're talking about. I've been flabbergasted at times by how horrible some of their content is.

What is wrong with this...

2. Shaun Rogers and Walter Jones tied for #18 (with Julius Peppers, Mario Williams.)
3. Adrian Peterson tied for...31st best player?

Is Peterson the #1 RB (least important position in football)?
