It it’s Monday (and we’re sorry to say it is), that means it’s time to review Sunday night’s episode of NFL Network’s “Top 100 Players of 2011” series. And who better to review the affair than NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek, who has been, shall we say, skeptical of the list. So here’s his bonus podcast talking about – gasp! – a fullback on the list.
But wait, there’s plenty more today about the Top 100:
- In the Top 100 review show that followed last night’s countdown of players 70-61, Warren Sapp and Kurt Warner debated the rankings, specifically of the many wide receivers on the list.
- Miami pass rusher Cameron Wake, after making an appearance on the list Sunday night, followed that up with an appearance in studio during the Top 100 reaction show. Was he OK with his place on the list?
- We wonder if Dameshek will have anything to say about Brandon Marshall coming in at No. 61. If you check out this video from Sunday night’s show, you’ll see a ton of amazing plays from Marshall. Just remember this, though: Marshall played for the Dolphins last season. Seems like most of these highlights are from his Broncos days. Just sayin’.
Had enough of the Top 100? Here’s what else is on tap today:
- Monday’s Data Points offers more food for thought regarding one of last week’s Instant Debate questions: What can we expect this season from Eagles QB Michael Vick? Here are some numbers to help you decide.
- NFL.com’s Adam Rank actually did a Pick Six earlier this year on the most bizarre feuds in the NFL. Well, in light of his calling the 1972 Dolphins the biggest divas in the NFL – followed by a reaction last week from Mercury Morris – there might be a new bizarre feud to add to that list.
- You may have already seen this on the home page, but Steve Wyche has the feel-good story of an otherwise depressing offseason, as Bears rookie J.T. Thomas took a 14-year-old girl with spina bifida to her prom Friday night.
- NFL owners will be gathered in Indianapolis today for league meetings. If there’s any news to come of it, we’ve got Albert Breer on site reporting for NFL.com and NFL Network, so stay tuned.
- Last season’s Week 10 game between the Jets and Browns was destined to end in a tie… until Santonio Holmes made a terrific game-winning play. The effort helped this contest reach No. 15 on our list of the top 20 games of 2010.
