This Sunday night, Asante Samuel will become the second Philadelphia Eagle to appear on the NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2011 list, landing somewhere between 60 and 51. Trent Cole, the Pro Bowl defensive end, fell in at 73.
According to NFL Network analysts, there are four total Eagles on the list, two of which have already been revealed. Predictably, the next two are going to be Desean Jackson and Michael Vick – perennial Pro Bowlers and two of the most popular players in the NFL right now.
But while these four Birds were expected to land on the list, their selection means that a number of possible contenders are now for sure going to be left out. Shady McCoy, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Peters, Quintin Mikell…any one of these players could easily be considered one of the best in the league at their position. So which slight pisses you off the most? Let us hear about it in the comments.
