Don’t tell Philadelphia Eagles fans these guys are better than Carson Wentz.

Former players can be great general managers, but they, oftentimes, won’t be. No one’s saying that statement is the gospel or that it’s one-hundred percent accurate. Philadelphia Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman wasn’t an NFL star, and though some of you won’t agree with this right now, he’s a fairly decent G.M.

Ozzie Newsome on the other hand was and still is a legend in both arenas. The same can be said about John Elway and John Lynch. Both have done great jobs for their respective organizations. There are also only 32 NFL G.M. jobs in the world though, so the competition is fierce.

Being able to rack up sacks doesn’t mean someone should run a team. Neither is watching football every year from the couch. We trust the players though, but here’s what’s funny.

Every year, the NFL Network puts out a top 100 players ranking. It’s voted on by the players, and if we’re being honest, some of the inclusions and exclusions every year are, in a word, comical.

Carson Wentz was left off of the list in 2020. Two of oh the guys on this list made the top 100 ranking, but trust and believe, even if you’re upset with Wentz right now, you’d rather have him than many of the other starting quarterbacks in the NFL, including the guys on this list.

Give this one a look for yourself. You might come away feeling like ’11’ isn’t as bad as we’ve been saying that he is.
