Bears running back Matt Forte cracked the NFL Media's list of "The Top 100 players of 2014" for the first time in two years.

But Forte was not pleased with his ranking.

Forte appeared at No. 91 after being excluded from the list in 2013. He was ranked No. 33 in the 2012.

Last year was arguably Forte's best season in the NFL. He finished with career-highs in rushing yards (1,339), rushing touchdowns (9), receptions (74) and receiving yards (594).

Among running backs, Forte was second in rushing yards, tied for sixth in touchdowns, third in receptions and fourth in receiving yards.

"It's obvious that you guys had Packers fans make the list and that's why I'm so (low) on the list at No. 91," Forte told Lindsay Rhodes Saturday on NFL Network.

Forte wasn't the only one unhappy with his ranking. Several of his teammates voiced their displeasure on Twitter.

Tight end Martellus Bennett had a few choice words expressing his opinion that we can't post here.

Do you agree with Forte's ranking? If not, where do you think he should rank among the Top 100?
