New York Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul Among Several Players Who Disagree with NFL’s Top 100 List

Every year following the reveal of NFL Network's Top 100 Players list, there's a certain level of outrage — fans upset their favorite players didn't make it into a certain percentile, players angry they didn't make the cut and analysts complaining about some player who was wrongfully placed.

This year the focus has been on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who many believe is the best player in the game, yet was ranked only No. 11 overall by his fellow players. It's something that has sparked great debate in recent days, but only one of the many placements being questioned.

Several players from around the league have shared their opinions on the final list — many of whom don't agree with it — and that now includes New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who took exception with the results thus far.

"Now what the f**k is wrong with this list? Don't get me wrong, all these guys are great players, but come on now! I see a lot of players who [are] not on this list that should be … but [I guess] that's none of my business," JPP wrote on Instagram.

It's unclear what placement or snub set JPP off, but it could have been his own omission. Then again, it could also have been a direct result of a teammate's omission, like quarterback Eli Manning, who failed to make the Top 100 after being ranked No. 43 in 2013 and No. 31 in 2012.

Either way, perhaps whatever omission it was that prompted his outcry will also help serve as motivation in 2014.

The final 10 players in NFL Network's Top 100 list will be revealed this coming weekend.
