In honor of one of the most unforgettable playmakers in NFL history, wide receiver Randy Moss, announcing his desire to return in 2012, we offer our lists of our top 7 most unforgettable plays.
These moments had to be witnessed in person or on television as they happened — eliminating plays we’ve only seen on highlight shows such as Sportscenter — and we had to remember exactly where we were when they took place.

Drew Forrester’s Top 7 … (Listen to full explanation HERE)
Ryan Chell and I introduced a new segment Wednesday on “The Reality Check” on AM1570 WNST.net. The segment is called “The Starting Nine (Ten)” and is remarkably similar to “The Tuesday Top 7″ that you hear Drew Forrester and Luke Jones doing every week.
During Major League Baseball season, we’ll use “The Starting Nine (Ten)” to pick out the best players at each position in baseball (Pitcher, Catcher, DH, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B and three OF’s). It’s similar to how “The Morning Reaction” guys select the best Baltimore Ravens every week in season.
Outside of baseball season, we’ll select a topic and fill a roster with the same positions based on the topic.
For example, this week’s topic was “The Faces of the Rock Bottom Era of Orioles Baseball (1998-present).”
Here are “The Starting Nine (Ten)” Ryan and I put together…
In honor of Giants quarterback Eli Manning winning a second Super Bowl to solidify his status among the NFL’s elite signal callers, this week’s Tuesday Top 7 looks at the athletes needing to win a championship to validate their greatness.
Any athlete who has already won a championship was not eligible for the list, so suggesting that Tiger Woods needs to win another major or Tom Brady must secure a fourth Super Bowl — and first after the Patriots’ cheating scandal — does not work. Luke Jones stuck to athletes in team sports while Drew Forrester considered those who participate in team or individual sports.

With a 12-4 season that resulted in an AFC North championship and first-round bye for the Ravens, we take a look back at our choices for the top 7 players of the regular season. We completed our lists looking at the entire body of work through 16 games and did not refer to the standings kept throughout the regular season.
Those standings have been included at the end for comparison purposes.
It’s nearly impossible — or even inappropriate — to select seven players who are really deserving for inclusion in our Tuesday Top 7 Ravens in the 34-14 defeat to the San Diego Chargers. But, we do it every week, and we’ll track our rankings throughout the 2011 season using the following point system:
