He is an a hole. Should not be on a list of top NFL players

23 Dan Marino Dan Marino Daniel Constantine Marino Jr. is a former American football player who was a quarterback for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League.

How many passing yards? Marino is the best QB not to win the big game.

So sad that Dan the Man never won a Super Bowl - RPD6478

He should be in the top 10 for sure. come on man!

Carried the team without any other HOF players

24 Emmitt Smith Emmitt Smith Emmitt James Smith III is a former college and professional American football running back who became the National Football League's all-time leading rusher during his fifteen seasons in the league during the 1990s and 2000s.

Really, number 27. All time leading in rushing touchdowns and yards, got more carries than any other running back, and has 3 rings. He is better than Jerry Rice, no kidding. I know I am a cowboys fan, but he still is number 1.

Emmitt is the all-time leading rusher. Yet, he is underrated. He carried the ball more than any other runningback in history. That is a big accomplishment. Most players careers would end early if they carried the ball as mush as he did! The most durable player ever!

He is the best I have to say. He played for my team! I am only 13 years old but, I like him. Him and dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are the best!

Should be number 6

25 Aaron Rodgers Aaron Rodgers Aaron Charles Rodgers is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

I love Aaron Rodgers so so so so so so so so so so so much he is my favorite player of all time! I am his number 1 fan

He should be top 20 he's better than brett favre

No one can throw the deep ball like my boy Aaron Rodgers! He is definitely gonna go down as one of the best! Number 26? Are you kidding me?! More like top 10 material we are working with here. At least better than Brett Favre. We don't see Rodgers leading the league in INTs. Go Pack Go!

To me he is the best because he can throw the ball really far and he is really cool.

29 Richard Sherman Richard Sherman Richard Kevin Sherman is an American football cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.

I like the picture of Richard Sherman crying after Malcolm Butler did his magic in the Super Bowl. It really shows you the type of guy he is.

What do you mean it shows the type of guy he is? I'm sure you would cry if you lost the biggest game in america off of one play... - RPD6478

He is not better than anyone in the top ten

Boy he is not even in the top 200

31 Michael Vick Michael Vick Michael Dwayne Vick is an American football quarterback who is a free agent. He has previously played for the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.

My favorite QB of all time (From a Packers fan). People hate on him for his history with dog-fighting but everyone makes mistakes, and he lived up to his and spent his time. There are people in the NFL who repeatedly abuse drugs or their girlfriends, and Vick still gets more hate. Anyways, playing-wise, he is the best rushing QB of all time and had one of the greatest arms. Also the greatest player in the history of Madden because of his stats in Madden 2004.

Best scrambler ever plus I love how you can beat your kid senseless, beat your wife unconcious, and potentially murder someone and get off with a suspension but he fights dogs and bam federal prison and his polarizing career was ruined

Vick is a has-been, he was good for a couple years with the Eagles, then he played for the jets and the steelers and hasnt done anything, he is not good anymore. - RPD6478

He might have a had some good years with atlanta, some good games with eagles, and then for the jets and steelers he hasnt done anything. also he might as well say goodbye to his chance at making the Hall of fame. Because with his prison record I highly doubt he will make the hall of fame - RPD6478

He won 10 championships. He can throw and run. He should be in the top ten. If he's not then this list is not right at all

Graham played in 10 Championship games in his 10 years and won seven of them!

One of the best QBs to ever play the game, and one of the most historic.

He was an unbelievable receiver. Said and done.

Don Hutson is to football like Wilt Chamberlain is to basketball

Teams started passing because of him.

has more records than any nfl player

38 Bo Jackson Bo Jackson

Everybody this guy should be number 1 because he is way better than Jerry Rice

Whoever thinks he is this good should be shot overrated garbage never even broke 1000 in a season

The idiot who said he's better than rice should watch some rice highlights

If it wasn't for that terrible hip injury, he'd be higher. - thomwim

39 Odell Beckham Jr. Odell Beckham Jr. Odell Beckham Jr. is a NFL wide receiver, playing for the New York Giants. He is most-known for making an incredible one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys. Beckham was drafted 12th overall to the New York Giants.

First of all, Odell is not overrated. He is not only relevant because of one catch. Oh god no. Before you start talking about that look at his actual stats. He was probably the best rookie the NFL had seen maybe ever. He has had three record breaking seasons so far. Getting lots of yards and touchdowns. And to top it off he can catch unlike anyone has ever caught before. But that's just the cherry on the sundae. The best player ever.

Odell is very overrated. After getting one lucky catch against the Cowboys, he's been treated like the superstar of the NFL. The only reason he could catch like that later on, was because he began to practice like that. It's pretty ridiculous what people like him would do for the audience. Why not play it safe, catch with 2 hands, and gain more yardage. Not some show-off who only knows how to catch with one hand and fall.

GOAT! And his stats prove it! People say "oh he only got lucky with one catch" but no, that's note even why he's good. He has broken like every rookie record and many more. In his first three years he has broken more records than anyone in the LEAGUE has they're entire career!

I wouldn't say that he's overrated but he's undeserving of the position he is in. His one handed catch did give him a lot of attention, but he still was an on-the-rise receiver in the NFL at the time. It's not too hard to gain yards on short 5-10 yard slant routes. Basically, OBJ is running routes that would be featured in the old 49ers West Coast offense. His speed allows him to beat defenders on short routes which allows for such a high YAC average. But, if you put him up against a good corner that can lock him down, he gets hot headed and frustrated. He can be made a non-factor if he faces the right corner. I would be Julio Jones above OBJ. - DWHutchII
