When it comes to Pro Football Focus (PFF), it is no secret that I am not their biggest fan. The player grades are what I have the most issues with, but I do think what they do with their stat collection is important. Right now, my gripe with the “player evaluation site” is their recent top 101 players of 2021 list, specifically regarding two Chicago Bears who were snubbed.

Before we dive into my gripes with the list, let me preface this with the fact that I’m not just complaining because my favorite player(s) did not make the list. This is not a, why are the Chicago Bears underrepresented once again article. Alright, well, that is a big part of it. However, what you are about to read is objective — unlike these PFF grades that I have to believe are completely subjective.

Pro Football Focus snubbed these two Chicago Bears in their top 101 list

If you read the article, it starts off by describing how their list is based solely on the 2021 season, and prior seasons are not considered in any way. They go on to say that their rankings have nothing to do with class or talent but focus on performance throughout the 2021 season. All players are “created equal” to keep quarterbacks from flooding the list.

Before I get into my issues, I did want to point out how Pro Football Focus at least got one thing right with this list. The first quarterback to make the list was Joe Burrow at No. 6. I am glad to know they at least think that Aaron Rodgers didn’t deserve the MVP award this year. Tom Brady was the second quarterback and who I believe deserved the award. In fact, Aaron Rodgers wasn’t even the third on the list — Josh Allen was third.

Alright, here we go.
