The NFL Top 100 list will be completed on Wednesday night, when these 10 elite players are sorted into their respective elite spots.
While the exact order of those final rankings isn't yet known, all 100 names are, which makes the following fact now official: Not a single member of the Washington Football Team made the cut.
That's quite sad.
It's also totally fair.
If you're coming here for a fiery take about how the franchise was robbed and they deserve more representation on the countdown, you made a wrong turn, then compounded that wrong turn with four more wrong turns.
Washington was 3-13 last season, and that 3-13 really felt like 1-15. That kind of effort won't receive many accolades.
The one, perhaps legit gripe is that Terry McLaurin was left off, while DK Metcalf was voted by his peers as the league's 81st-best player. McLaurin posted essentially the same stats as his fellow draft classmate, so that choice was a bit of a mystery.
However, the defense of the Burgundy and Gold begins and ends there.
Now, looking ahead, one would think there's no way this happens again. Between McLaurin, Chase Young, Landon Collins, Montez Sweat, Ryan Kerrigan, Daron Payne, Jonathan Allen, Brandon Scherff, Derrius Guice, Matt Ioannidis, Kendall Fuller and Adrian Peterson, someone from the organization should be able to break into the Top 100 next year.
Regardless, this version of the list is yet another reminder of how not fun and not good and not worth remembering 2019 was. At least it can't get worse; while a few other squads also had zero reps, nobody finished with -1.
