You guys are pros. The best. I'm sure you can make it out of the casino

Pete Prisco over at fired off his annual list of the 50 best players in the NFL (regardless of position). Aside from the obvious, there isn't another Donk on the list. No one was even good enough to crack his 15 or so "just missed" list. That means the Broncos have only 1 of the 65 best players in the NFL according to Prisco. Interesting.

Obviously I'm a little biased (a little), but I have a problem with a few of these names. Some of his receivers and O-Line choices are particularly irritating, specifically Andre Johnson, Lee Evans, Jonathon Ogden, Sean Andrews and Steve Hutchinson.

Those are all nice players, but right now would you take Ogden over Lepsis? Lepsis isn't exactly a young guy, but I think Ogden is pushing 50.

Would you take perennial underachievers Andre Johnson and Lee Evans over Javon? I wouldn't. I know Evans came on strong last year, but how fuckin' hard is it to run 65 yard fly and post routes all day? Law of averages says you’re eventually going to connect on one for a big gain. Losman will get benched...again and Evans will mail in the season...again. Johnson may be another story, but again, he’s their only real threat, and he’s moody enough to take very long stretches off.

How was the Vikings run offense last year, Steve Hutchinson? Middle of the pack, you say? Not good enough to justify the size of your insane contract? Interesting.

How come I've never heard of you, Sean Andrews?

The lone Center in Prisco’s top 65 is Olin Kreutz. Seriously?

I don’t care what some asshat professional sports writer says, Tommy Nails and Javon Walker are among the best 65 players in the NFL.

wow, that's freaking lame. Prisco has never been a Bronco guy. Walker, for sure. Nalen, most liekly. What about Sauerbrun? Best punter in NFL. I'd also have DGraham in there.

I personally would still take Ogden over Lepsis. He's old and gets smoked by quicker edge rushers like that cheater Merriman now and then, but Ogden can still get it done.

Javon, though, was inexcusable. There's not a single GM in the league that would take Lee Evans over Javon. That alone made that list a joke to me.

Lepsis is also coming off an injury. Juggernaut (aka Kyle Johnson) being left off is inexcusable. If he would do his pony ride touchdown dance more often, he would be on everyone's top 10 list.
