It’s one of the most satisfying ordeals in a sports fan’s life; ranking players. The debate on the greatest of all time in any sport, at any position, promises to wage on for centuries. For several years, NFL Network has released their “Top 100,” as voted on by NFL players themselves. The 2016 NFL Top 100 featured several players from our own Players Tailgate at Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco, California, and the 2015 Players Tailgate at Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona!
