..........
How are the Hawks rated by their Peers? Not by how you think they should be rated.

Russell Wilson Big one. He's top 19. I'm going with #7.


Richard Sherman
Marshawn Lynch
Michael Bennett
Earl Thomas
Kam Chancellor
Bobby Wagner
Doug Baldwin
Cliff Avril

Every Wednesday Night the NFL Network will reveal 10 ballers.

100 - 91 were revealed last Wednesday.

I wonder how much our guys (including Graham) will fall this year.

The only guys on the rise in terms of league-wide perception are Wilson, Bennett and Baldwin. The first is top 15, Bennett is top 50, Baldwin is a snub (I think he's better than Jarvis Landry).

I think Cliff Avril is one of the most underrated players in the league.

Yes. Last season he played like a top 15 edge no doubt about it. Overlooked because he doesn't have big sack numbers. His speed rush is elite and his run defense came along nicely ever since he's in Seattle. He's the Doug Baldwin of EDGE.

Cliff Avril >>> Chandler Jones imo.

I wouldn't bet against Lynch somehow sneaking onto the list. It wouldn't be deserved with his injuries, but it is possible

Let's get some guesses, guys. No big but it gives you a reason to look at each bracket to see how close you can get. Whatever but 90-81 are tonight 8 est, 5 pst.

Just ctrl C, Ctrl V, place a number and submit. Gone in 60 seconds....

Russell Wilson

Richard Sherman

Earl Thomas

Michael Bennett

Bobby Wagner

Doug Baldwin

Kam Chancellor

Cliff Avril

Jimmy Graham

Marshawn Lynch

These are the guys I see ultimately making the list:

Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson - top 15
Earl Thomas and Michael Bennett - Top 40
Bobby Wagner and Kam Chancellor - Top 80

Snubs: KJ Wright, Doug Baldwin and Cliff Avril. All those are clear cut top 100 guys in my book, set to be snubbed. We'll see Jamie Collins/Dont'a Hightower high but no Wright, John Brown/Julian Edelman/Jarvis Landry but no Baldwin and Olivier Vernon/Chandler Jones but no Cliff Avril. Which is all criminal imo.

This may be the best video of the top 100 so far and it's not homerism.

Doug Baldwin at #72. Excellent !

NFL.com edited a portion of this video.

On NFL Network #72, they show his battle with Deion Sanders. Hilarious. I think something else was removed.

Definitely a must view on NFL Network.

Way to go Doug. You da' man!

Don't know about you guys but Earl Thomas at 66 is borderline disrespectful imo. Special player with amazing attitude and his skillset makes viable one of the few perennial elite defenses in the history of the sport.

Hall of Famer on his prime.

I was surprised his peers ranked him that low but I thought it was spot on.

To preface, I know ET's responsibilities & what I say doesn't happen 100% of the time. I also like ET but am an objective fan.

ET doesn't have elite ball hawk instincts. With his fast twitch quickness, he could do much more and when you watch ALL-22, it's apparent.

That opening game TD vs the Rams was a joke. How do you allow Nick Foles to beat you with an obvious 1 on 1 - 9 route with Dion Bailey on Lance Hendricks? With less than 1 minute left? All the other WR's were blanketed & he's in CF with his hands in his pants. That's #66.

Follow it up with Rodgers TD to James Jones on the Skinny post & right at ET. That can't happen. That's #66.

Many others in between but let's skip to the Panther game when Olsen runs a weak route down the seam & ET's lack of instincts have him in no man's land (not in the screen) while Olsen barrels down to the 1 yd line. That was his responsibility. There was only 1 guy to fear & he was coming right into his territory, Greg Olsen. That's #66.

ET's a very good Hawk. I'm glad we have him in our secondary. It's just that he gave up too many game changing plays to be any higher than #66. He's very good but didn't play elite in 2015.

I was surprised but glad. Maybe it will light a fire & he'll come out with more focus & film study. With his natural athletic talent, he shouldn't leave the 20's.
