Davin Joseph Is 64th Best In NFL?May 16th, 2011
Joe swears he hasn’t had a beer or a cocktail in 24 hours, nor has Joe been cruising around with Alex Magee or Jerramy Stevens, so Joe is certain he wasn’t seeing things this morning reading Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column on SI.com.
In conjunction with the man channel NFL Network series, Top 100 Players of 2011, King is counting down his personal Top-100 and has them matched up alongside a graph of the NFL-player picks in his column. This morning, King published his Nos. 61 through 70, even though NFL Network hasn’t aired those selections yet.
Joe read Kings’s list and saw Davin Joseph at No. 64. (Really. Joe swears). However, the editorial gremlins at Sports Illustrated have since taken down all of King’s selections in the 60s.
Now Joe nearly spilled his coffee seeing Joseph ranked that high. …Perhaps it was King hanging out with Magee and Stevens.
Joseph is an excellent, injury-prone player, but the Bucs didn’t miss a beat without him in the last five games of 2010 against the Falcons, Lions, Redskins, Seahawks and Saints. And there’s no way he’s in the class of the best 100 players in the league, let alone 26 spots ahead of Josh Freeman, as King ranked him.
Joe wonders what will be there when King unveils his list — again — next Monday.
