Lane Johnson not making the NFL Top 100 list is stupid and yet another reason why no one should care about it in the first place
If you’re looking for yet another reason why the NFL’s “Top 100 Players” list is completely useless, after it was released this past week, Philadelphia Eagles Right Tackle Lane Johnson was not included.
Lane Johnson absent from NFL Top 100 List
This is just more evidence of how pointless and stupid it is to rank players or teams are based on undefined criteria. The reality is that this list exists because the NFL Network needs something to talk about during the time between when training camps are wrapping up and the season is beginning.
I guess I’m kind of giving them what they want by complaining about it here on Philly sports’ most prestigious website. Unfortunately leaving off Lane Johnson is simply too egregious of an omission to be ignored.
Whenever you have a list that includes players like Mac Jones and not Lane Johnson, you should immediately know whatever list you’re looking at should not be taken seriously.
Lane Johnson is arguably the best Right Tackle in the NFL. He has been one of the best every year he’s been in the league. He didn’t allow a single sack all season in 2021, which is even more impressive given the fact that Jalen Hurts is a mobile quarterback and constantly using his legs to escape the pocket and extend plays. His 94.9% pass block win rate is literally the key reason Hurts survived the 2021 season in one piece.
This isn’t even taking into consideration that he caught more touchdowns last year than half the NY Giants receiving corps.
Watch: Lane Johnson catches TD.
Somehow this wasn’t enough to crack the list of the Top 100 players in the NFL?
The fact that its NFL players doing the voting makes it even more ridiculous. I don’t know how the NFL suits that threw this together can release this list with a straight face. Regardless, something tells me this won’t bother Lane Johnson one bit. He’s the kind of player that prefers being the underdog.
