The next guy to make the NFL Network’s list of Top 100 Players in 2012 is Peyton Manning. Wait. What? Huh? His name is being called already?
Yes, Peyton Manning was ranked No. 50, sandwiched in between Maurkice Pouncey (49) and Brian Urlacher (51).
It didn’t help that Manning missed the entire 2011 season, but we’re talking about a four-time MVP player, and a Super Bowl winner. It seems that many of Manning’s peers aren’t convinced that he can have much success in Denver, at least during his first year.
The top 100 list is based on peer rankings.
