Pete Prisco published his list of the 50 best players in the NFL.
It’s veritably littered with Colts. #18 holds down the top spot over some pansy-ass pretty boy who will go unnamed. Freeney comes in at #12, which I think is pretty accurate, though surprising giving his statistical drop last season. #88 rolls in at 26 behind three other receivers (Johnson, Holt and Smith). I can deal with that because the other dudes are younger, and this sort of has a projected feel about it. Reggie Wayne also shows up at 33, which is more than fair given his production and the threat he poses on every play.
Given his proper due, Zombie Bob also slides in at #41. This really is an impressive ranking considering he didn’t play for huge chunks of last season. When he did show up, however…he ate brains like the bad ass mofo we know he is.
Now, bearing in mind that this is just a personal list by Pete Prisco (who has fallen out of our favor in recent months, it’s still pretty sweet that the Colts would throw down 5 of the top 50 players in the league, the most of any single team in the league.
