Jim Dooley must've been an incredible WR to make this list, considering how his horrifyingly bad coaching had to weigh him way, WAY down.

REally good names in that group. Will be interesting to see top 25.

Mack making the list was a little crazy to me. Give him some time with same production as last year and he will be in the top 15 easily.

Papa Bear was such a stud he has to take up 2 positions

Quote:
37: END George Halas
36: HB/DB George Halas


I think perhaps Pompei and Pierson compiled their list while at a bar :toast:

How much did Lance Briggs pay to get that high on the list? He's a quality player, but the 28th best player ever? Just going by stats on this one? Otis and Wilbur were better IMO. I would also have Tillman ranked ahead of him by talent.
