I disagree, you do get to see them compete against each other, but those games are exhibitions, not competitions. The number one priority is not to get hurt.
This is still like saying that one kid played at Under Armor and one at Army Navy and you can tell one is better than the other even though they never set foot on the same field. If they just called it the 100 best HS football players with no ranks, I would buy it more.
