The NFL Top 100 concluded yesterday, and you'll be absolutely stunned to hear who 'won'. Aaron Rodgers has been voted by his peers as the best player in the NFL. You can watch the video of players discussing his qualities right here, at NFL.com.

Rodgers was one of six members of the Green Bay Packers voted into the NFL 100 this year. John Kuhn, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews all made the list as well. I think B.J. Raji belongs on that list over Kuhn and even Nelson, but beggars can't be choosers.

Here's what Rodgers had to say after the announcement.

"It's very humbling. It's a great honor," Rodgers said to NFL Network after the announcement. "Anytime you're recognized with that professional respect from your peers, that really means a lot to me. So I'd like to thank them for the votes. Obviously this is a recognition that doesn't get done without an incredible group of people around you. That's often lost when the focus is on one individual. My teammates, my coaches, our tens of thousands of owners that we have there in Green Bay and across the country, I've got to give them a lot of thanks as well."

I don't get too caught up in awards, honors and top player lists, but this is a pretty cool honor considering it was voted on by his fellow players. Also -- hey! -- we have the best player in the NFL. We win you lose nananana boo boo. *sticks out tongue*
