Experts: Big Ben better than his No. 41 ranking

Dave Dameshek is outraged over Ben Roethlisberger‘s No. 41 ranking in NFL Network’s “The Top 100 Players of 2011.” What say you, NFL Network experts?

Former Cardinals QB Kurt Warner, who lost to Roethlisberger’s Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII, points out that signal-callers such as Michael Vick, whose position on the list hasn’t been revealed, are “more dynamic, more fun to watch” for fans and players alike.

Saints safety Darren Sharper agrees with that point, but Bucs CB Ronde Barber believes Roethlisberger’s Super Bowl titles trump Vick’s athleticism. Analyst Michael Lombardi shares Barber’s support for Roethlisberger.

Roethlisberger’s ranking wasn’t the only part of Sunday’s revealing of players 50 through 41 drawing reaction. Broncos CB Champ Bailey phoned in to discuss his selection as the 48th-best player, and Sharper listed his top six safeties in the game today.
