I was pondering about this LONG and hard and I was wandering how many, if any of our players would fall into the top 100 this year.

 

Last season I do believe that we led the league in players on the list with 9! This upcoming season I think we'd be luck to have two.

 

Okay, we do have the best kicker in the game today, but Kickers don't make the list. Yanda could very well make the list, but I felt that he should've made it last year as well and only 6 linemen made the cut, so that's shaky.  

 

Then we head to the defensive side of the ball. Our serious candidates are Jimmy, Suggs and Doom. All three could very well make the cut, if any of them do I highly doubt that they'll be higher/lower (however you see) than 40.

 

Who makes the list?

Probably going to be a rough year.

 

Sizzle, Jimmy, Yanda, and Haloti (name) all have very good shots. Other guys like Doom, Tucker, and Art Jones have outside chances.

 

None of our usual guys from offense - Joe, Ray - will or deserve to make it.

You have to remember this is based on name recognition for the most part. Players only get 10 votes, so they put down the names that jump to their mind first.
Someone like Eugene Monroe was our best offensive player, but likely won't be on the list because he doesn't carry the name recognition.
I would bet Sizzle and Doom make it. I'd guess Torrey has a very slight chance, but guys like Art Jones and Jimmy don't have the name recognition that other players do.

Suggs makes it on name alone. Tucker?!? He probably should make it, but I doubt a kicker makes the list. It's possible, but highly unlikely.

Suggs will make it on the first half of the season and on his reputation. Ngata could make it off reputation and the handful of splash games he had this season. 

 

While Yanda and Monroe were bright spots on the line and played admirably considering the circumstances, I think they don't have a chance because our line was just awful this year. 

 

As much as he disappointed me late in the season, Torrey Smith does have a shot at making it.

 

Jimmy Smith better make top 20 or I'll be surprised.

I'd be surprised to see Jimmy make the list at all. He just doesn't carry name recognition.
When does the list start premiering?

Tucker. Daryl Smith too but he won't because he's not a big name. Ngata will probably make it on reputation.

Suggs, Nagata, Flacco, ( yes I believe so ) Yanda. Tucker wont. He is a lowly kicker.
Torrey maybe.

suprised no one's mention torrey. He was tearing it up for us this year and would've put up more numbers had we had more passing targets. Easily one of the most underrated wr's in the league and without a doubt a top 100 player

If we used Torrey for more than a deep threat I think he'd have a good chance...maybe next year in Kubiak's offense. Tuck should get a nod, but they never pick special teamers...although he could change that with his big personality.

If anyone, I agree with most people above...Suggs, Ngata, and maybe Yanda

Here are the ones that could make it: Suggs, Dumervil, Ngata, Jimmy Smith, Jacoby Jones and Torrey Smith. Of course, if they include kickers then Tucker.

suggs and ngata may make it based off of their big names alone. joe flacco possibly(doubtful) could be very low on the list with the narrator saying things like "we still have to give a super bowl mvp from just 2 years ago some credit" or something like that. ray rice could make it based off of his name. but the ones I see realistically having a "chance" based off of performance alone are:

 

tucker, hes not a regular kicker, dude had one of the greatest season a kickers ever had, and he is a well known character in the nfl.

 

daryl smith played lights out all year, it would be a slap in the face to not have him at least in the first episode.

 

dumervil slowed down numbers wise at the end, but still applied constant pressure all year.

 

jimmy smith deserves to be a top 50 player but man on man shutdown corners make it based off of name and reputation, so jimmy may not be there yet.

 

yanda had a down year so he might get snubbed again.

 

torrey is a long shot 

 

but realistically, I see us having 3 players max on the list.

exactly what im thinking about tucker. I think hes got a real shot to be the first kicker to make it. the dudes reputation skyrocketed this year
