Where Should Chris Johnson Rank In The NFL's Top 100?

NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2011 list has certainly stirred up a bit of controversy. Everybody knows that their star player was criminally underrated by those moronic NFL players. Obviously Maurice Jones-Drew deserved to be higher than Arian Foster because of his career achievements despite the list being about 2011 and only 2011. Clearly Wes Welker should have been rated higher than the flash-in-the-pan Dwayne Bowe, I know this because I'm smarter than the guys who voted on this list. True story.

But as we approach the top 20, where should Chris Johnson be? His two AFC South peers, Arian Foster and MJD have already been named  number 25 and 30 respectively, so that means the players believe that CJ is still the best back in the division despite having arguably the worst 2010 season. I'm with them. I think based on pure ability, the only back in the NFL that comes close to reaching CJ's level is Adrian Peterson now that he seems to have overcome his fumbling problems. 

When I think about it, I'm almost positive that Peterson will be the highest rated back in the NFL for 2011. It's very hard to argue that, even with the statistical differences and 2,000 yard season. Honestly, I have no problem with that. There will always be no wrong answer for this argument, I'm cool with AP taking this one. I'll say that CJ goes 14 and AP goes 9. 

Oh, and one more thing, he's better than Jamaal freakin' Charles. Is it smarter to use Charles the way the Chiefs use him? Sure, but that means you can't complain when he's left out of the discussion for the best in the league. Play a season with 300+ carries ya scrub.
