    Great list, but I drop M. Garrett down 2 more spots, and move those 2 up. JMO

    :hmm:


    Nick at 10 and Joey at 3 is very intriguing. Brian Burns not being on the list is another aspect that catches my eye. I agree with one and two.

    What I thought too.


    Nick Bosa is coming off of a DPOY Season. For me, Nick, TJ Watt and Myles Garrett are the big three among EDGE Players currently. Micah has already proven to be a force as one and will likely continue to get better but he needs to understand that mere athleticism alone is not enough to win most of the one on ones. Between me and you though, Brian Burns definitely belongs on this list despite his team's performance.

    Difference of opinion good sir!


    Fair enough to not like Myles the person. Myles the player though, for me, is a lot different. I will say his DPOY chances are not getting any better though.

    Has nothing to do with liking, or not liking. Although I do put a lot in how You do against us....if You play us, and sadly He has not been very impressive. 23 solo tackles...,and 7 sacks in 10 games. TJ has 40 solo tackles, 1int, and 1 FF, and 15 sacks in 10 vs the Browns. It's not close. Yes....I always like to compare players against their division.....because that's who knows You best. You can't take them unaware.

    Right on with Micah, and recently I heard a quote from him he recognizes that and is working on those aspects of his game. Burns definitely.

    Micah may not have the length of a premier EDGE but given how well he has used speed to power I don't see it nearly as much of a problem as others do. So long as you have an effective plan and are more quicker in terms of hand fighting along with chaining various moves during the pass rush.... the rest should take care of itself.

    The liking vs not liking was not directed at you. :)



    It is just some don't believe he deserves his placing. Fair enough though based on your criteria.
