    Those are all almost definite. One could argue for other teams also (Seattle, Carolina, etc)
    I'm not seeing it.
    I don't see any team that superior to ours. I see a list of teams with comparable skill guys.

    If it's something like top 10% of starters at a position, I'm not sure we have anyone who classifies as elite anymore.

    I think that AB and Bell were in that category at their peak. Maybe Ben at his peak (but I don't know if he's ever been a top 3 guy, maybe he was behind only Brady and Manning at some point). Maybe JuJu if we think "starters" includes 3 WRs / team.

    On D...maybe Heyward (if he counts as a DT). Hopefully Watt, but I don't think he's there yet.

    Who do you think we have on the current roster that's "elite"? And how do you define elite?
    My definition is going to be different than anybody else's.
    I don't use the term elite for any player.
    I can however use top 5 or top 10 as a measuring stick for talent levels. Based on that, I say this team has, and had, more talent than most teams.

    I would take Atlanta and Green Bay off that list

    I think we had elite talent at one point with the Killer B’s, Shazier and Heyward but I think our D doesn’t have elite talent at any position right now. Good players but no game changers yet. Watt, Bush, Hargrave and maybe a healthy Tuitt definitely have a chance to return us to glory with some good play this year.

    Offense it’s JuJu (hopefully) and maybe Ben if he can get these WR’s on the same page.

    I just think folks were so bitter at AB and Bell that they lied to themselves and said they were only successful because of the players around them.

    What some fail to realize is elite players make other players look better as well.
