Playoffs continue to inch closer and closer. I know my leagues are coming down the to the wire, so I’m sure you’re going through the same thing. If not, consider yourself one of the lucky ones and keep up the hard work! Glory doesn’t come to those who don’t put in the work. If you’re out of the playoff hunt, I hope you haven’t stopped playing wanting to play spoiler to league mates and screwing them over. That’s also a fun alternative while preparing for next season. Nonetheless, I do hope y’all are staying competitive throughout the rest of the season to nab some bragging rights of sorts.
The 2018 Chicago Bears finished with the league’s number one overall defense, an insane amount of takeaways, and cruised to their first NFC North Division crown since 2010. In the first round of the playoffs, a “double doink” heard around the world, brought the Bears season to a screeching halt. This season, the Bears will be starting with a new kicker and a whole lot of motivation following their early exit. Will they be able to bounce back from the rough ending to an otherwise incredible season? Take a walk with me as I attempt to crack their 53-man roster and what to expect from them this season.
The writers at TheScorecrow.com decided to get together and come up with their version of a Top 100 NFL players from the 2018 season. Each writer was invited to submit a ranked list of their top 25 NFL players. The votes were then counted using a weighted average method. This means that a 1st place vote was worth more than a 25th place vote.
Players ranked 1st on a list received 25 points, 2nd = 24 points and so on down to 1 point for a 25th place vote. Each players points were added up and then listed from least to most to generate our list of top 100 players. The top few players were fairly common on all the lists, but after that it was interesting. We hope you enjoy our rankings and would love to read your comments on our list. Special thanks to Beth Sullivan for tabulating the votes and getting this project together.
The Chicago Bears host the Philadelphia Eagles today at 4:40pm ET. The Eagles again find themselves entering the playoffs with backup Nick Foles. The Bears are back to being the “Monsters of the Midway” again and hold the third seed in the NFC. Something’s gotta give.
