Calm down, Sam. I think you're overreacting.Then nobody should be polled... fans, players, coaches, owners, media ... because being objective doesn't exist.
Let the year end records do the speaking, and not a writer for SI trying to meet his deadline.
There are many ways to look at a list of players objectively, it just depends on what empirical data is relevant to the poll. http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com/ is a website dedicated to making objective determinations of this kind.
