Ogden is an OL, Merriman is a LB

And yes, Gates is overrated. Not to mention he was a bust in my fantasy league last year :D

yeah, no shit. OP's lineup is about 4 season's old.

Does Ed Reed even play anymore? He was worth about 2 points/week last 2 years.

Ogden has been a bust for 3 or 4 years now. one of those perennial pro bowlers. he was good though. best LT is Walter Jones.

i'd say Fitzgerald is the best all around WR, or maybe TO

where has Peppers been the last couple years? he's definitely got the athleticism though. Jared Allen, Mario Williams and Jason Taylor are better football players IMO

Tony Gonz is still by far the best TE. If he had Romo throwing to him last year, he would've killed Witten's stats. Similar players, but TG is much quicker, jumps higher, runs better routes, and has better hands. The blocking is a wash between them

Pat Williams of MINN is the best big DT. he's a run stopper, and proved his worth last year when MINN gave up the fewest rushing yards in the league.
EDIT: damn how'd i forget Jamal Williams. total package there, and that puts him ahead of the bull Pat Williams

zinfamous, you are kidding right? Reed is by far the best all around safety in the league. watch Bob sanders cover a WR and tell me he's the best. rofl.

he's talented and awesome. All I'm saying is that he hasn't been much of a factor over the last 2 or 3 seasons as he was before.

A guy like Adrian Wilson has been much more valuable. but hey...who pays attention to the Cardinals? :p

...or the Ravens, for that matter...

I love the guy. he is great.


the only one i can really disagree (sure you can put others in) but good list. though as much as i really do like Urlacher i don't think he is the best (one of them yes) but i think there are better.

On a serious note, Julian Peterson and Lofa Tatupu should be on this list.

I was thinking OL was Outside Linebacker. And I confused Ogden with the old Ravens LB who went to the Pats. Forgot his name and somehow thought that was who you were reffering to.
