    GIANTS' JASON PIERRE-PAUL # 24 ON NFL'S TOP 100 LIST FOR 2012

    GIANTS' JASON PIERRE-PAUL # 24 ON NFL'S TOP 100 LIST FOR 2012

    "Last week, New York
    Giants
    quarterback Eli
    Manning
    and wide receiver Victor
    Cruz
    were ranked the 31st and 39th best players in the NFL,
    respectively. Although there was much debate about whether the dynamic
    Manning/Cruz passing duo should have gone higher, the one thing everybody took
    from the rankings was that the team's defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul had cracked the top-30
    on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2012
    list.


    Last night, it was finally revealed that JPPhad been voted the 24thbest
    player in the league by his peers. Pierre-Paul was ranked ahead of players such
    as Julius
    Peppers
    , Clay Mathews, Tamba
    Hali
    , and Ndamukong Suh.




    In typical Giants fashion, JPP took the ranking in stride and acknowledged
    that although it is an honor to be considered among the elite players in the
    league, being put on a list of great players will not help him in defending the
    team's Super
    Bowl XLVI
    victory.In astatement released via
    twitter
    , the third year player out of South Florida stated the
    following:





    "I'm just happy I'm on the list now I put it past me and keep doing me and
    stay humble and focus that's what I do best."




    In just his second season last year, Pierre-Paul recorded 16.5 sacks and 86
    tackles while playing in all 16 games. However, JPP himself recently stated
    thathe has improved every single year he has ever played
    football
    .Perhaps the scariest aspect of this ranking is that JPPis only
    entering his third year in the league. His rare combination of size and speed
    enable him to overpower his opponents.




    That being said, Pierre-Paul still a ways to go in mastering the technique
    associated with the defensive end position; which leaves open endless
    possibilities in terms of just how great he can be. If all goes well, look for
    Jason
    Pierre-Paul
    to be an even more dominant force in 2012."

    imo, JPP over Peppers is kind of rediculous. I mean, I love the kid and all, but he's only been doing it for one year.

    Yes. I think it's based on what you did in 11 not your career and the rank is going into to 2012 who they feel are the top100.
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Wait? That whole line of thinking is kinda shot to heck then when you consider Eli at 31 with Benn, Bree's, Rodgers and Brady ahead of him. I know some of them had better regular seasons biped Eli did have all this comebacks. He also beat brady head to head twice last season and Rodgers once. Well twice if u count the robbery first time around. Benn has no business being ahead of eli. Bree's does

    Yeah i dunno. I don't think the "list" was very clear. I think some players did and some players didn't. Which is why people like McNabb made it last year. He probably made it onto the list off of longevity and league respect alone.
