Honestly, I would like to know which players actually vote as hardly anyone knows of any. that did. Ryan Clark of the Steelers said on Twitter he had no knowledge of any one who voted. From looking at the results, many of them mind-boggling, Even though the year was for 2011, according to NFLN, the voting criteria was supposed to be for the play of 2010. I wondered if any of them were paying attention to the play of the players or were they asleep.
Let me make one thing clear before I continue. I do not like lists. Sure, they create discussions and arguments and fans, including myself all feel good or bad or whatever because their favourite placed high or low on a list. However, the reason I don’t like them, is the same reason I am not a huge fan of Halls of Fame: Lists, much like Halls of Fame are voted on by HUMANS. What do humans have?
They have their political agendas, biases, attitudes, prejudices, etc, and they use that to vote FOR and to vote AGAINST a player or artist (like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame having ABBA in but no KISS). I feel with this PARTICULAR list, some players got on there because of legacies, and popularity, and not because of their play in 2010. Some players, in my opinion were voted too high or too low because the voters possibly held things against said player.
