C.J. Spiller not listed on NFL’s Top 100 is crazy talk
C.J. Spiller of the Buffalo Bills posted one of the best averages in NFL history at 6.0 yards per carry last season, but according to the NFL Network’s top 100 players list, that wasn’t good enough for him to place in the top 100.
Ten running backs have been named to the the Top 100 including Doug Martin and Trent Richardson. Is Spiller not deserving of at least a Top 100 ranking?
Spiller’s average yards per carry in 2012 was higher than Vikings running back Adrian Peterson’s all season long, until Week 17.
One of the most elusive backs in the NFL, Spiller had the third most missed tackles in the league despite sharing time with Fred Jackson.
Things will only get better for Spiller under new head coach Doug Marrone, but not being named by his peers is simply crazy talk.
Crazy talk continues on other sites who are naming Spiller as a “breakout” candidate for 2013. Maybe this will serve as a reminder but C.J. Spiller had over 1,700 yards from scrimmage (1,244 rushing, 459 receiving) in 2012. I think it’s safe to say he already “broke-out.”
