The Reality of Player Rankings

As people start ranking individual players, be it for fantasy sports or otherwise, keep in mind that people have their opinions. Usually, fans like to say that their players are the best.

People talk about how they do not think Greg Jennings is a quality wide out, or how Aaron Rodgers isn’t actually that great. Then they go on to say how so-and-so is faster, stronger, more clutch, blah blah blah. Their words fall on deaf ears. So what is the reality of individual player rankings?

They don’t matter.

The NFL is a team sport. Who cares if Donald Driver is getting old? Here’s a question that matters. Who has a ring? People can say all they want about how the Packers do not have what it takes to win. They are wrong.

Why?

 

How many other teams won Super Bowl XLV? The next time somebody attempts to say that Greg Jennings doesn’t have the speed required to be a top notch receiver, tell them they are right.

The weight of his Super Bowl ring slows him down.

    I don’t care about lists as none of them can offer a true valur rating of a player from Organization to Organization.What a player does for one,more often cannot do for another.There are too any tangibles that may or may not aide or hinder that players performance.
    IMO,the only item that has a true meaning of a players worth to his team is what happens to said team when that player isn’t playing.
    Paolomalu(idk)has a solid impact for the Steelers in that case point,and I hope Jennings never gives us the chance to corrulate that stat.
    So,for those who feel Jennings was under rated on the 100 list,ask yourself and answer honest if you can;if he were to miss 8 games,would the Packers go 1-7,2-7 or 6-2,5-3 because of the loss or in spite of the loss of him?
