I Don't Really Care (Seriously) but Someone Needs to Call Out CBS Sports for Its AWFUL Best NFL Player by Jersey Number List
Yo straight up, I don't really care about this because it's just a stupid list that means nothing (like all of life lolol) and I just need to write about sports to prove I still got it for the folks at BSS, but you're gonna need to glance at this list to get wtf I'm talking about; here it is.
So I saw said list on instagram during my most recent bowel movement. As I typed that sentence at 10:23 PM I am DYING for my roommate to get out of the shower so that can become my 2nd most recent BM (and possibly 3rd by the time this blog is all said and done). I'd really hate to have the substitute's bathroom dilemma happen in my own home (that I rent a room at).
Sometimes my therapist is able to get a word or two in during our sessions. The one thing that has really stuck with me is "control what you can control". While that Confucius like wisdom doesn't stop me from from overthinking myself into a panic, it has helped me realize how much of my life I am truly in control of. The same goes for you! You can chose let something insignificant like getting cut off at intersection or being served ruin your day or you can just let it roll off your back like that duck idiom that I'm not wasting time looking up.
That being said, CBSsports broke down the best NFL players by jersey number. Before getting to the list itself I should tell you that dudes on this list were broken down by team before you get to the 1-99 stuff. When I saw only one Patriot (of course) made the cut, I was like oh well it's obviously going to be Stephon Gilmore; the reigning defensive player of the year. I don't need to waste time here. I am spending $8 a month on onlyfans. I should be there. I'm wasting money right now even writing this blog, but I cannot sit here and let someone with a real platform say that Nick Chubb is the best #24 in the NFL when he's won zero X player of the year awards in the NFL.
At least have some balls and commit to saying he's a top 3 RB. Now I am actually mad because this dude gets paid to write and I don't (with the exception of two sponsored gambling posts). I have nothing against Nick Chubb; in fact, I think he's nasty. I wish the Pats took him instead of Sony, even though he helped the Pats win a Super Bowl.
Sony Michel when healthy is good, but nothing special and certainly replaceable AF. If you swapped Michel for an elite RB and Stephon Gilmore for an average CB are the Patriots still Super Bowl 53 champs? The great irony of putting Chubb over all those lock-down corners is how author Cody Benjamin boasts about positional value being the deciding factor for close calls.
Any football guy/person with a brain in their skull will tell you a shutdown cornerback is more valuable than a RUNNING BACK. Remember all those Super Bowls Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Ladainian Tomlinson carried their team too? I can picture the steam billowing out of Warren Sharp's mustache now.
Like I said, I don't even care. I am not worked up about this because it's just a stupid list made by a dude who barely has more twitter followers than me, but like hellloooo?
If Stephon Gilmore; reigning DPOY is not the best #24 in the NFL? Is Fred VanVleet the best #23 in the NBA too? At least he's won a ring more recently than the guy I'm obviously inferring.
The one Patriot who is on the list?
David Andrews #60.
I love Dave Andrews, he's the fucking man. I saw him in the distance at Rough N' Rowdy in Providence back in November and he literally only goes to the Super Bowl, but the dude didn't even play last year due to blood clots in his lungs. He's the only Patriot representative for best players going into 2020? Got it!
