Ngata named No. 9 in NFL players’ Top 100 list for 2012

Posted on 28 June 2012 by WNST Staff

The last of seven Ravens players to be named to the NFL Network’s list of the “Top 100 players of 2012,” defensive tackle Haloti Ngata came in at No. 9 on the list.

In a vote conducted by players around the NFL, Ngata was the third-highest defensive player on the list and the top Baltimore player revealed over the last several weeks. Only Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (No. 5) and Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware (No. 6) were ranked higher on the defensive side of the football.

Named to his third straight Pro Bowl in 2011, Ngata was joined by Terrell Suggs (No. 11), Ed Reed (No. 16), and Ray Lewis (No. 20) on the list as the Baltimore defense was well represented. Offensively, Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice (No. 22), Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach (No. 45), and quarterback Joe Flacco (No. 74) were the offensive players who cracked the list for the Ravens.

Be sure to listen to The Reality Check on AM 1570 on Thursday afternoon as the star defensive tackle is scheduled to join WNST.net’s Glenn Clark at 3 p.m.

I’d watch ZBB do just about anything, but this was as good as anything I’ve seen them do…

My favorite tune from Thom Yorke and the boys?

For more traditional country folk, I sorta dig this Jerrod Niemann tune…

I wish I didn’t have to admit to digging this tune…

9. Great Grapes Wine & Food Festival (Saturday & Sunday 12pm Oregon Ridge); Guy Torry (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Corey Holcomb (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); “Man on a Ledge” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Glenn Clark’s first ever “Hogfest” (Saturday)

That’s right. For the first time in my (still?) young life, I will be roasting a pig Saturday. It’s all thanks in part to ABC Rental Store in Rosedale. A talented young man I listen to on the radio is always talking to me about them. I think his show is called “The Reality Check.” I PRAY my results make me as happy as George W. Bush…

Also, I will be hosting a qualifier for the Olympic KanJam team Saturday (more on Twitter @OlympicKanJam). I expect the day to look much like this…
