Opinions are mixed on whether Michael Vick, the league’s most athletic quarterback, can pull off an encore in 2011.

Plenty of wideouts to debate on ‘Top 100’ list

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.

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.

Owens would help fill Bears’ most glaring weakness

In fairness to Jay Cutler, he needs in Chicago what he had in Denver, a true No. 1 receiver.

Newton not caught up in being Panthers’ starter

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.

Ingram looking forward to playing with Bush

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.
