The MMQB Podcast team presents the definitive ranking of NFL wide receivers, from Antonio and Odell to Dez and Fitz to A-Rob and Jordy

When Andy and I first discussed doing these positional rankings, the first thing I did was opened a spreadsheet, started columns for every position and jotted down a handful of names. Because you never know when an anvil is going to fall on your head and kill the brain cells that house all memories of Aaron Rodgers.

But by the time my jotting was done a few days later, the wide receiver list was by far the longest. I had literally 30 names to consider for my top 15 receivers. As Andy says on the show, this was the toughest position to pare down. (And, for the record, it broke my heart to not rank Steve Smith Sr. or Stevie Johnson):

We also dive into comedy/tragedy that is Deflategate, giddiness over the Giants’ possible plans for Eli Apple, how my 4-year-old daughter was nearly the sole owner of a jersey of Giants No. 2 kicker Tom Obarski, and, yes, our thoughts on the Redskins name controversy.

This week’s segments:

Deflategate solutions, Dominique Easley in L.A., Zach Mettenberger is a Charger, the Giants’ plans for Eli Apple, the Browns cut ties with Brian Hartline, and the Redskins name: 1:30

Mailbag: 23:32

Rankings the NFL’s Cornerbacks: 36:11

Oh, and this is the Simpsons clip that inspired my idea for a Deflategate sanction compromise:
