Which Seahawks will leap in next year’s NFL 100?
By 710Sports.com staff
The NFL Top 100 list is finally complete, and it was no surprise that the resilient Adrian Peterson and ageless Peyton Manning took the top two spots, as Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discuss in the video below.
Minnesota running back Peterson, 28, bounced back from a torn ACL and MCL suffered in 2011 by rushing for 2,096 yards (nine short of the NFL record) to win the MVP and Offensive Player of the Year awards. His comeback story was eclipsed only by Broncos quarterback Manning, who edged him for the league’s Comeback Player of the Year award by posting a 105.8 QB rating (the second-best in his career) in his first season back from a pair of neck surgeries.
As for the Seahawks, they had a final tally of six players on the list – which is compiled through votes by NFL players – with running back Marshawn Lynch (No. 24) taking the highest ranking.
Of course, the expectations for the Seahawks in 2013 are even higher than their NFC divisional round appearance in 2012, and it’s likely next year’s rankings will see several Seahawks jump up the list.
So which Seahawks are most likely to make a big leap next year? “Bob and Groz” pick it up from there.
