The Score's Goal Line Stand did their own rankings of the Top 100 Players in the NFL. They also did a separate ranking of the Top Ten by position that will surely draw debate not only from all over the league's fans but definitely from fans of the Baltimore Ravens. Certain positional rankings did not include any Ravens and rightfully so. Others were questionable, some were disappointing and then there were the almost laughable ones.
Wile there wouldn't be any argument on no Ravens in the Top Ten CB rankings, I was surprised to see that Todd Heap did not make the Top Ten TE list, and Ben Grubbs (nor even Marshal Yanda) did not make the guard's list. While I was not initially miffed that Anquan Boldin did not break into the Top Ten WR rankings, when I saw the Pittsburgh Steelers Mike Wallace on it, I instantly almost laughed.
It was nice to see Haloti Ngata top the "Run-Stopper's" List, Terrell Suggs on the "Pass-Rusher" List and Ray Lewis among the best inside linebackers. However, as much as we like them and as good as they have been, I was surprised to see both center Matt Birk and RB Ray Rice as high on the list as they were ranked.
What will definitely draw the ire of Ravens fans will be the continuing debate safeties Ed Reed vs. Troy Polamalu, which this list had Troy ranked ahead of Ed. In addition, you will not see QB Joe Flacco in this Top Ten QB List, but you will see Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman, Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub and of course, Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan.
Let the verbal counter-attack flow, Ravens fans...
