09-02-2010, 03:16 PM

Friday, September 3, NFL Network debuts a new 10-episode series produced by NFL Films entitled, The Top 100 NFLís Greatest Players. The one-hour shows feature a countdown of the top 100 players in history as determined by a blue-ribbon panel comprised of more than 100 NFL experts, historians and all-time great players and coaches. There will be 10 players unveiled in each episode. Each of the 100 featured players is presented by a noteworthy individual in the world of sports and entertainment talking about what made that player one of the greats.

This should be good and start up a pretty good debate, DVR has been set. :)

Top 2 guaranteed to be Jerry Rice and Jim Brown. These lists tend to love on Jim Brown, great no doubt, but it was just such a different era. Looked like the only man playing against high schoolers.

Jim Brown will be one of the people who they interview, it will be interesting to see who he picks.

Perhaps these should be merged.
