NFL Network has begun its annual practice of revealing the Top 100 players in the NFL, as voted on by the players (or at least the players who bothered to fill out a ballot). Washington receiver Pierre Garcon doesn’t think his fellow players ranked him high enough.
Garcon came in at No. 80, and he reacted to that on Twitter by writing that he feels “underrated” by that ranking.
“I guess it’s better to be underrated than overrated,” Garcon wrote.
It’s not surprising that Garcon, who led the league with 113 catches last season, thinks he deserves to be higher than that. Of course, Garcon also led the league with 184 targets, so leading the league in catches was as much a reflection on the way he was used in Washington’s offense as it was on his own play. Garcon can quibble with the ranking, but No. 80 seems about right.
