NFL Top 100- At # 97 Shaun Phillips


Every year the NFL players vote on the top 100 players for the past season. There are roughly 1800 players in the NFL, so If you make this list you are among the top 5-6% of players. has started the count down from 100 and currently we find ourselves at 91, counting down to who the players believe the number 1 player is in the NFL for the 2011 season.

You must remember that all these players voted to the top 100 are voted by their piers. So far we have had 1 Charger make the list at #97 Shaun Phillips. Numbers 100-91 are as follows, along with some stats from last year just for comparison. (even though its hard to compare offensive players to defensive players will give it a shot)

100. Donovan McNabb

13 start, 3377 yards, 14 tds, 15 ints

99. Chad Clifton

16 starts

98. Darren McFadden

13 starts, 1157 yards, 7 TDs

97. Shaun Phillips

16 starts, 47 solo, 1 int, 1 TD, 11 sacks, 7 passes defended

96. Nick Collins

16 starts, 59 solo, 4 int, 12 passes defended

95. Jon Beason

16 starts, 90 solo, 1 int, 1 sack, 9 passes defended

94. Frank Gore

11 starts, 853 yards 3 TDs

93. Eric Berry

16 starts, 77 solo, 4 ints, 2 sacks, 1 TD

92. Lance Briggs

76 solo, 2 sacks, 2 ints, 1 TD, 7 passes defended

91. Terrell Owens

72 receptions, 983 yards, 9 TDs,

Keep in mind that they voted on last years performance not overall performance and not all players got to vote. Lance Briggs said ” I didn’t receive the ballot so I’m not sure who got to vote.”

Do you think Shaun Phillips should be this far down on the list? I’m not to sure myself, we will not know till we see the rest of the list.  There are 11 other linebackers on the list besides Shaun Phillips, with Jon Beason, and Lance Briggs being two of them. So according to this list, 11 linebackers are better then our very own Shaun Phillips.

I’m really starting to wonder who voted, or which players were able to vote. You cant complain too much if out of 1800 players hes #97. We look forward to the rest of the Chargers that are on the list. What does everyone think about this?  I will continue to bring you more, and see if Shaun Phillips deserves #97 as we unveil the rest of the Chargers on the list, as well as the rest of the top 100
