The NFL’s Top 50 Players In 2011

With the 2011 NFL regular season now history, now is as good of a time as any to rank the best players  of the year.

So, let’s go ahead and rank the 50 best players in the league from the recently played season.

When it come to the top player, it’s a two-man race, between quarterback Drew Brees of the Saints, and Aaron Rodgers of the Packers.

This is a great argument, and you really couldn’t go wrong with either guy.

That being said, my pick would be Brees.

Brees has the the highest completion percentage (71.4%), along with the most passing yards (5,476), and the most touchdown passes (46) of any quarterback in the league.

The Saints have gained a lot of national respect during the Sean Payton era, but I’m convinced that if Brees were the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, or New York Giants, that the MVP Award would be a no-brainer.

Rodgers certainly has been outstanding, throwing for 45 touchdowns, with only six interceptions, and leading his team to a 15-1 record, but you have to pick somebody number one, and I think Brees just edges him out.

Minnesota Vikings’ defensive end Jared Allen would be the first defensive pl;ayer on my board. After all, it’s kind of hard to argue with 22 sacks.
