08:03 AM ET 06.28 | As the NFL's Top 100 rolls on, some players are hearing their names called earlier than they expect. Since his rookie year in 2005, no NFL player has had more sacks than Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware. However, that was not enough to get him ranked as one of the top 10 players in the league by his peers. Ware, who has 80 sacks since 2005, six more than second place Jared Allen, is arguably the best pass rusher in the NFL. But according to a players' vote that has been unveiled on the NFL Network, Ware was given the No. 12 overall ranking. The 29-year-old appeared on the NFL Network on Sunday to dispute his place on the list. "You know, I think I should be the No. 1 guy on the list," Ware said. "But at the end of the day, people are going to vote you where they think you should be."

They still have the top ten left. He's GOTTA be on it. (If it was ranking the most selfish, delusional, dorks)

Rank????


Rank THis!!!!!!

Look at the bright side DeMarcus, the fans ranked you 26th.

June 28, 2011  08:35 AM ET

Dude! You're a top-ranked player. Everyone respects your play on the field, and so far, you haven't been a "distraction" like certain members of the Cowboy offense, or front office for that matter. Don't eff it up.

Why all the worry about this lame list? Will being higher on it get you a bonus, will it get you a contract extension, will it get you voted into the HOF? NO it's just a stupid list!!

It lost all credibility when they placed McNabb at 100. I stopped reading there.

God came in 14th on the All-Time Great Dieties list.

Demarcus Demarcus Demarcus ... Please don't fall into this trap. Your play speaks for itself. You don't need that list to validate your awesome play.

June 28, 2011  10:15 AM ET

That's nice he's the best pass rusher, but aren't there more facets to the position?

The list is not for all time it is comprised of players that will be playing in 2011, McNabb probably won't even start in 2011. Yes he belongs at 100 and remember it was the players votes that landed him there. Rodney Dangerfield: Let me tell ya, I get no respect.

When people at the NFL Network have nothing better to do they organize these controversial lists for people to argue about for eternity. Garbage like this will be used by his agent the next time he negotiates a new contract, but it won't get him into the HOF.
