Mid-Season Setting of the Standard
Curious to see who people think are setting the standard for play at each respective position at this point in the season, now that every team has played at least half of their schedule. I don't really have specific nominees myself, but I'm interested so as to get a better feel for the rest of the league this year. If there's anyone on the Seahawks who qualifies for this conversation right now, it'd probably be Richard Sherman. He's laying some huge hits this year along with being on pace to break up 20-something passes and is also on pace for 10 forced turnovers between interceptions and forced fumbles. I know the hobbits patrolling Chicago's back end have been forcing turnovers like mad, but I don't know if I've seen a Chicago game yet.
Aaron Rodgers is probably the obvious choice for QB again,
Adrian Peterson just shredded a solid run defense without ANY help from (read: "without the existence of") a passing game,
And it gets hard from there.
