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.
Opinions are mixed on whether Michael Vick, the league’s most athletic quarterback, can pull off an encore in 2011.
No position is better represented on NFL Network’s “Top 100 Players of 2011” than wide receiver, with 18 making the cut as voted by players. On Sunday, 10 more players were revealed, including two wideouts — Miles Austin (No.70) and Brandon Marshall (No. 61). Austin and Marshall join fellow wideouts Terrell Owens (91), Josh Cribbs (84), Mike Williams (83), Santonio Holmes (76), and Greg Jennings (74) with 11 more to come.

Tiki Barber‘s decision to unretire and play next season didn’t elicit a great deal of support from most NFL observers. But his former teammate, Giants LT David Diehl, was in the NFL Network house Friday and said Barber will prove the naysayers wrong.
Plaxico Burress returning to the Giants is believed to be possible, but one person with some insight — starting LT David Diehl — doesn’t see the receiver coming back. However, it’s not for the reasons you might expect.
Christian Ponder says he wasn’t surprised the Vikings made him the 12th overall pick in last month’s draft. That would put him in the clear minority, because it was a move the surprised nearly everyone else.
In fairness to Jay Cutler, he needs in Chicago what he had in Denver, a true No. 1 receiver.
From the moment Cam Newton was drafted first overall by the Panthers last month, the conversation surrounding the quarterback has been if he should start from Day 1.
It might surprise some that one of the Saints who wants Reggie Bush to remain with the team is the player whose presence makes him expendable — first-round draft pick Mark Ingram.

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis paid a visit to the NFL Network studios.
