Well, that stupid NFL Network countdown of the top 100 players in the league as voted by their peers ended last night, although not in predictable fashion. I mean, clearly the reigning NFL MVP, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, would be No. 1, right?
Rodgers was No. 2.
Houston Texans defensive end (and Badger great) J.J. Watt was No. 1.
Says me, you and also J.J. Watt.
"@AaronRodgers12 definitely deserves (to be number 1). There's a reason he won MVP."

Rumor has it, the dickwads at the NFL won’t let these embedded videos play on other sites, but here’s Rodgers’ anyway. Click the link and watch it on YouTube if nothing else.
You’ll be disappointed, though.
There’s no Ike Taylor.
He’s number 2 behind Brett Favre as well….
JJ Watt the best player.
Rodgers the best QB.
What is amazing to me is how he dropped out of the top 5 much less top 10 last year.
if you are building a team, and know what the Hell you’ re doing, Aaron Rodgers would be your first pick, not JJ fricken Watt, think it through people!
Watts a monster but stats are inflated. 14 of his sacks came from his divisional match ups (6 against Jags, 4 against the colts, and 4 against the Titans) dude plays in a joke of a division
J.J. Watt is a class act. It’s too bad he’s not a Packer. He is easily my favorite non-Packer in professional sports. The fact that he was a Badger does help some.
I love JJ, have to being from WI, but that dude is on roids.
Whatever do you mean? Do you mean you and I can’t gain 70lbs naturally and maintain our speed and strength in 4 years…
I now have a man crush on Arodge thanks to that YouTube video. Thanks a lot Monty!
Fucking money. Guy is fucking money.
You could tell a few of those guys wanted to use the word “cocky” when describing him, but to not get in trouble refrained….
This is an outrage! Like the author, I didn’t give a shit about some stupid list until JJ Watt was picked number one. Jay Culter was clearly the best player in 2014.
It’s ridiculous to try and choose the “best player” in the league. It’s a silly exercise in apples and oranges. How can you compare a qb with a d lineman? Or a wideout with a linebacker? The best you can do is declare a player the best in the NFL at his position.
