    Agreed, but these list don't really mean anything. Just interesting to read, so I post it. We already know we don't get a lot of respect out west, so you just gotta embrace the hate.

    Still, it was nice to see LT, Gates, & our Defense picked #1.

    There's way to much time between now and the start of the season for these lists anyway.

    And how about VJ and Legedu Naanee. I think that they will be put higher and be put on the list after the end of this season.

    I think this was actually from nfl.com.

    PR is above a good handful they put ahead of him, including Sheli, what a joke, a bad qb wins a ring must catapult him fifteen slots.

    That was the first one that jumped out at me. Roddy White? Are you kidding me? Who the hell is going to throw him the ball.

    And having Cutler above Rivers on the QB list is just a joke.

    Here is where he stands from a guy that actually plays against WRs in the NFL. Not some pencil pushing stat grinder.

    Nate Clements ranks the NFL's 10 best receivers, based on personal experience.

    I'm starting to believe P88F is the greatest troll this forum has ever seen.

    He even trolls people IRL, right Ant?
