NaVorro Bowman calls NFL Network’s Top 100 list “totally bogus”

Jun 8, 2016 at 2:04 PM--


Add San Francisco 49ers ILB NaVorro Bowman to the list of players that are not happy with NFL Network's Top 100 Players list. Last month, it was revealed that Bowman had ranked number 61 on the 2016 version of the annual list, now in its sixth season.

The list is supposedly voted on by players within the league. However, Bowman stated on Wednesday that the list was "totally bogus" and that he has never seen a players ballot or teammate vote for the list. So ... who exactly votes for this thing? It's doubtful we'll get a definitive answer from the NFL.

Perhaps next year he will rank higher within the ranking. Bowman said that he feels great heading into his second season since returning from a devastating knee injury. He stated that his surgically repaired knee feels great, a vast improvement from last season when it was still giving him issues.

Bowman, who played at a high level during his first season back after recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, started all 16 games during his 2015 season with the 49ers. It was his first season without ILB Patrick Willis by his side. During those games, he had 154 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two passes defended and a forced fumble.

The 154 combined tackles were the most of his career and ranked first in the league in 2015. The next closest was LB D'Qwell Jackson of the Indianapolis Colts with 150 combined tackles.

In 2013, Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta came in at No. 100 on the NFL Top 100 Players list. San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk called his good friend, giving him a hard time for not getting into the double digits. Nine years later, Juszczyk finds himself named to his second consecutive NFL Top 100 Players list. Last year, the fullback came in at No. 97. This year? No. 100. Juszczyk admits that karma probably finally caught up with him. Although, he is happy just to be on the list because his peers vote on it. "Honestly, that's one of the biggest recognitions I could get," Juszczyk admitted on Monday. While several other 49ers players are bound to show up once Nos. 1-50 are announced, one of Juszczyk's teammates has already been



Kyle Shanahan on why it was time for 49ers to transition to Trey Lance; Analyst calls it an unnecessary risk

Mike Tannenbaum made his opinion on the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback situation very clear this week. The former NFL executive turned analyst was asked on ESPN's GetUp if the move from Jimmy Garoppolo, who enjoyed a lot of success in his four-and-a-half year run as the Niners' starting quarterback, to second-year quarterback Trey Lance is a risk. "Yes, and it's an unnecessary one," Tannenbaum said bluntly. "You have a great quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo, who over the last three years has taken your team to the Super Bowl and the [NFC] Championship Game. I love Trey Lance. I think his upside is compelling. But why would you risk not playing Jimmy Garoppolo, especially early, when you have a team that can win right now? "When Jimmy Garoppolo plays, and
