    Hard to argue. "Current" is the key word.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    There's room for argument. No question.

    It's also hard to argue if it's actual NFL players doing the voting.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    NFL players voted Antonio Brown, Tom Brady, Von Miller, Todd Gurley, Aaron Donald, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Wentz, Julio Jones and LeVeon Bell as the top 10 players in the league.

    Exact order 1-10 coming next week.
    I don’t care what the order ends up being, Aaron Rodgers is the best player in football.

    Definitely. It is fun to hear their analysis of one another as well.

    I would also guess that personal experience against (or with) that player makes a difference.

    Definitely — especially when some of these guys only play once every four years, or in some of the younger player’s cases, they haven’t played them yet.

    Brady voted number 1 player in the NFL by his peers once again. My nephew Carson Wentz number 3. Not bad for a second year signal caller. Dam proud uncle.

    Almost good enough to remove the Bison Blight.

    If he knelt for the flag, it would have been MUCH worse.

    Guarantee it's part of the NFLPA contract, and the NFL cannot suspend him for more games.

    Kneeling for the flag is acceptable. Kneeling during the National Anthem is not (for now).

    Is old farts will remember the palaver over Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising a black gloved fist after the 200m at the Mexico City games. Now raising your fist is acceptable and you see it at most political rallies.

    Something stinks, and it's the NFL.

    For those keeping score, Winston’s punishment is half the supposed baseline for domestic and sexual violence – a benchmark the NFL rarely meets, mind you

    But during a game? Anything less than standing at attention with your hand over your heart means you hate America.
