    looking through roster, we do not have one player who would be widely considered in the top 5 for his position.

    I believe when healthy ronnie brown is knocking on the door, and y bell is having solid year, but to push for superbowl in next 3yrs do we need one or two elite players. looking back at history, im trying to think of team who did not have this type of player.

    Do we need it, if so who has the potential??????????????????????

    Ronnie, Langford, Merling, Jake Long or ........................????????????????????

    The pats at the time didn't have any real elite players in their first SB. Later we found out they had one in Brady, but still.

    Joey could be considered one of the best this year and possible top 5.

    We have three players leading in the fan pro bowl balloting. Joey Porter is on pace to break the NFL sack record. What is it you need to qualify somone as elite?

    They need to be proven.

    However I would consider Penny, Brown, and Porter elite. Ricky was once elite aswell.

    We have JP, Ronnie, Jake Long, Bell, and Chad Pennington. I would consider all of them to be some of the top players in the league at their position.

    Jake Long, Ronnie Brown, and for certain Joey Porter could all be considered top 5 of their positions.

    Only thing holding Ronnie Brown back is, ironically, Ricky Williams. But big Jake will be considered and Elite tackle soon if not already.

    And the obvious forgetfulness of Joey porter is just sad.

    If there were a category for QBs that said "Get the job done" he'd be number one int hat category right now. unfortunately that's not a category. Numbers wise Penny isnt amazing. He;s doing well though and Its great that hes here.

    Brown (I'd say nearly every year but that's me), Long, Pennington, Porter.

    As a pass rushing lb (a position in all 3-4 d's), Joey Porter could be arguably the best. That's #1 as a pass rushing lb. Definitely elite, and how we had the luxury to be able to trade J. Taylor.

    Pro Bowl balloting doesn't qualify someone as elite!

    True, Very True. Look and Derek Anderson last year, doesnt even qualify as a player being good.

    well, and before i say all this I like pennington as a QB, but there are a two big factors that go into that.

    1. Pennington has only played all 16 games in a season ONCE in his career. (heres hoping this years is #2) With the second highest amount only being 13 games, and after that 12 games during his first year starting, and sadly, THIS YEAR is actually only his fourth time completing over 200 passes in his 9 year career.
    2. The avg yard per throw in his career is barely over 7 yards.

    And despite his accurate numbers, his TD/INT ratio is a rather unimpressive 3/2. So he has a high percentage for completions, but he really isn't as careful with the ball as his completion percentage would suggest.
