This year’s NFL’s Top 100 Players list voted by the players themselves has been completely revealed. And just like every year, this year’s list has also caused a massive storm among football fans. ESPN analyst Mike Greenberg also joined with the fans to trash the list, especially since the Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins (ranked 42nd overall) got ranked higher than the New York Jets‘ QB Aaron Rodgers (51st overall).

“People think Kirk Cousins is better than he [Aaron Rodgers] is because he had a down year with a broken thumb. I want Aaron Rodgers to see that every single day,” said Greenberg in a recent episode of the ESPN show Get Up.

Furthermore, when he was reminded that this list was ranked by players and not fans, Greenberg expressed his disgust with the list. “It’s an outrage, it’s a disgrace, it’s a joke…I’m perplexed,” said Greenberg.

Greenberg wants Aaron Rodgers to hang the list in his locker room as a reminder of how other players believe Cousins is a better QB than him and to give himself the motivation for the 2023 season with the Jets. Somehow, players ranking the Vikings QB Cousins ahead of Rodgers have angered Mike Greenberg.

It is understandable since many fans believe Rodgers is simply better than Kirk Cousins. The NFL’s Top 100 players list had so many other flaws including the Dallas Cowboys signal-caller Dak Prescott (56th overall) and the Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff (66th overall) getting ranked higher than the Baltimore Ravens star QB Lamar Jackson (72nd overall).

After a 15-year dominant run in the NFC North, as the Green Bay Packers starting QB, Aaron Rodgers is now taking his talents to the AFC East to lead the New York Jets in the upcoming season.

Rodgers, at this stage of his career, is looking to add another Super Bowl ring to his resume. As a result, he orchestrated a trade from the Packers to the Jets in the 2023 off-season.

And now, the 39-year-old quarterback Rodgers is looking to lead the young core of the New York-based football team to a Super Bowl championship within the next couple of seasons. But for the upcoming season, the 10-time Pro Bowl signal-caller would be looking to put an end to the NY Jets’ playoff drought and lead them to their first postseason appearance since 2010.
