ESPN Insiders: Super 50

Jan 27, 2005, 7:28 AM EDT

If you are subscribed to ESPN Insider you can check out their poll of the "Super 50" most valuable players in the NFL.  You can see the top 3 which I copied from the Eagles message board.  Donovan is 2, T.O. is 3, BWest is 36, Dawk is 40.

ESPN Insider rated the top 50 players based on individual performance and importance to team- some interesting results… (Westbrook is 36, dawk 40)

By Jeff Reynolds, Pro Football Weekly, The following list of the NFL’s top 50 players is based on two factors, with each counting as half of the equation. The first is how well the individual played in 2004, and the second is his value to his team. With these components in mind, we polled a panel of NFL insiders to name the league’s "Super 50" in ’04. All comments were made on the condition of anonymity.

1. QB Peyton Manning, Colts "The best passing quarterback in the game. A pure passer who has been Marino-like in many of his last 45 games or so and keeps Indianapolis in position to make a real run at a championship."

2. QB Donovan McNabb, Eagles "The prototype modern-day NFL quarterback. His pocket presence, accuracy and arm strength have all improved." … "The big things were losing weight and adding (Terrell) Owens. He was so stiff and muscle-bound because he had to run and took a lot of shots. With Owens, he moved to the pocket."

3. WR Terrell Owens, Eagles "Only disrupted cornerbacks and didn’t rock the boat. Proved that his skills, if a concerted effort is made to feed him the ball, can match almost anyone in the game. When you drop the ball on his hands in man coverage, it’s all over." … "The best playmaking receiver the Eagles have ever had."
