    These polls are so useless I'm not sure why the Bears even bother to publicize this unless for some reason the NFL forces them to. Last week it was Matt Forte who was ranked 91st and 9th among RBs. Is that because RBs just aren't valued as highly any longer? I also can't see 8 other RBs in the NFL who are more productive than he is and has been throughout his career.

    So Tim Jennings ranks 74th but Matt Forte only ranks 91st? I think Tim Jennings is a damn good football player and for his size one of the toughest CBs in the NFL but better overall than Matt Forte is as a RB? Without knowing anything at all about the criteria used for the selection process this poll is about as useful as used toilet paper.

    It's a pointless thing, but considering that there is like 1500+ players in the NFL, anyone in the top 100 should be considered flattered. But the show made a mockery of itself, and proved it wasn't a pole by the players when they had Tim Tebow on the top 100 list.

    The next week after Forte, they had Reggie Bush and Eddie Lacy ahead of him. Both did great last year, but neither was in the same league as Forte who was a top 5 back in every meaningful stat available.

    All the same, good for Tim Jennings, glad people are finally starting to take a look at those CB's on the Bears team.

    No way Reggie Bush was ahead of Forte. Lacy? yeah maybe but he does not have the longevity. However, as a RB, maybe they look at the number of years as bound to start dropping and they value the young ones more not sure. But in terms of value, I would have Forte ahead of Jennings... and I like Jennings a lot.

    I'd say Jennings is #1 on the list if you scale it per inch of height.
