I was having a conversation with some friends, and we were debating the "blue chip players" on each team, and were attempting to use that to predict how well they would do next season. We went through each teams and counted up how many players on that team could be legitimately argued for top 10 at their respective positions. The numbers might surprise you.
Nine blue chip players:
Eight blue chip players:
Seven blue chip players:
Six blue chip players:
Five blue chip players:
Four blue chip players:
Three blue chip players:
Every other team ended up with two or less.
Of course, as you all know, stars can rise any day and become a blue chip player. Also, qb play can make a huge difference on if your blue chips count, but it is an interesting topic none the less.
Another reason to not be worried is amount of "Blue Chip" players we have on our roster, blue chip of course meaning, someone who can be argued top 10 in their position within reason, or at least, that is general argument.
We have a whopping seven blue chip players, SEVEN. Just for some perspective.
New Orleans: 5
New England: 4
San Francisco: 8
It is going to be alright, we have a diverse core, CALM DOWN.
