ESPN recently released their projections for the potential 100 best players in the NFL, and there are some very notable absences from the Philadelphia Eagles roster.
The NFL regular-season schedule begins on September 5th for the oldest rivalry in professional football, the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. For everyone else (except for the four teams participating in Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football), their quest for the Lombardi Trophy begins on September 8th. Throw the Philadelphia Eagles in that category.
We’re sure to have a ton to talk about between now and February.
For many of us, one of those great talking points that we love revolves around any sort of ranking. That might be a close second to statistics. Every week, you’re almost certain to hear about who the best teams are and who the best players are. The NFL Network released their Top 100 players of 2019. ESPN has followed suit with one of their own.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, center Jason Kelce, tight end Zach Ertz, and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox made both lists. ESPN added Lane Johnson to their ranking. There are however four noticeable absences from both lists. We’ll discuss those momentarily. Let’s begin with a quick look at the guys who made ESPN’s Top 100.
