The defensive tackle insists there's been a mistake.
"I don't think I'm the best Ravens player," Ngata told the team's official website Monday. "The way we play together on this defense, we make each other better. I couldn't do what I do without (Terrell) Suggs and Ray (Lewis). It's the same thing with those guys; they can't do what they do without us. I don't think there is a best player. We have so many good players and that's the recipe to a great defense."
Ngata's point is that Baltimore's defense has dominated the conference through teamwork, but the "Top 100" is about individual achievement. Ngata's humility is refreshing, but his argument falls on deaf ears: He belongs at No. 9.
