The Top Ten

1 Calvin Johnson Calvin Johnson Calvin Johnson Jr. is a retired American football wide receiver who played his entire career for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. He is often called the nickname ''Megatron'' for his rare combination of size, speed, and leaping ability on the field.

The stats and his size speak for themselves, and then there's the intangibles, like the fact that he still makes plays in triple coverage. I would say he will be historical top 5 material as a receiver. - Wopwop

I love CJ but what about Ray Rice, Marshawn Lynch, Cam Newton, or any of those guys? - Alpha101

CJ rocks he should be called CJ2K - icecheetas

totally

3 Adrian Peterson Adrian Peterson Adrian Lewis Peterson is an American football running back who originally played for the Minnesota Vikings and currently plays for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

2,000 yards almost broke a record - Norrisofchuck

Dragged his team to the play offs coming off an ACL tear, #1

2000 YARDS!? He should be #1!

ADRIAN PETERSON WAS FOR SURE THE BEST PLAYER OF 2012. HE WON MVP AND RUSHED 4 2097 yards. HE ALSO SET THE VIKINGS UP 4 A GW FG WHICH PUT THEM IN THE PLAYOFFS AND IS THE ONLY OFFENSIVE PLAYER ON THE TEAM THAT CAN DO CRAP! - Ktmikkelsen35

4 Drew Brees Drew Brees Drew Christopher Brees is an American football quarterback for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League. He is the only player to have back to back to back 5,000 yards in three seasons straight. Brees also has the all time best completion percentage with 66.95%.

WHAT! Eli Manning is before Drew Brees, That's a bunch of bull that's Drew Brees spot I don't care if Eli was in the super bowl also getting the MVP award is not a reason why he should be up there Quarterbacks almost always get MVP

He broke a record shouldn't he be either #1 or #2 at least - htoutlaws2012

5 Eli Manning Eli Manning Elisha Nelson "Eli" Manning is an American football quarterback for the New York Giants of the National Football League. He is the younger brother of former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

7 Peyton Manning Peyton Manning Peyton Williams Manning is a former American football quarterback who played 18 seasons in the National Football League.
8 Richard Sherman Richard Sherman Richard Kevin Sherman is an American football cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League.
9 Maurice Jones-Drew

I truly believe he is the best in the game, and while many people would argue for others who are faster or have better numbers, I call a Barry Sanders dilemma, because this man plays for the worst offense in the nation, and still dominates. Case closed. - Wopwop

10 Matt Ryan Matt Ryan Matthew Thomas "Matt" Ryan, nicknamed "Matty Ice," is an American football quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

The Contenders

11 DeMarcus Ware DeMarcus Ware

First of all Demarcus Ware is amazing I'll bet he could average sacking 30 per game second of all why is Eli manning and Maurice jones drew ifront of him... LIKE really. N

12 Larry Fitzgerald Larry Fitzgerald Larry Darnell Fitzgerald Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League. Fitzgerald was drafted 3rd overall to the Arizona Cardinals in 2004, he is considered to be one of the best players of his position to never win a Super Bowl.

16 Matthew Stafford Matthew Stafford John Matthew Stafford is an American football quarterback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. ...read more.

He should NOT be top ten. He is in the 90's or not even on the list. He has poor performances and he plays well inconsistently. He is not a great player at all.

5000+ Passing yards. 23 years old. Scary huh? - Wopwop

21 Haloti Ngata Haloti Ngata Etuini Haloti Ngata is an American football defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.
22 Brian Urlacher

He should be in the top ten because he is like a coach for the Chicago bears and if it were not for him we would not have the great record that we are having right now. He could even compare us to the 85 bears and he could even give uss all the support so that we could get our second super bowl at the same spot where we got it at, the home of the saints.

23 Tim Tebow Tim Tebow Timothy Richard Tebow is an American professional baseball outfielder in the New York Mets organization and a former professional American football player in the National Football League.

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