Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston was jobbed by the NFL the other day.
The league ranked him as the No. 27 player overall in their top 100 countdown.
I’m sorry, but the guy who leads the NFL in sacks with 22 shouldn’t be ranked that low. Houston’s easily a top 20, if not top 10 impact player.

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston wasn’t happy about his franchise tag.
Not surprisingly, Houston’s stance reportedly hasn’t changed. He won’t be reporting anytime soon.
