    • 40 names still to come:

      I'll start who I think will be candidates on offense.

      QB: Joe Montana*, Dan Marino, Johnny Unitas*, Otto Graham*, Sammy Baugh*, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, John Elway.

      RB: Jim Brown*, Walter Payton*, Barry Sanders, Gale Sayers*, Emmitt Smith, OJ Simpson*, Bronko Nagurski*.

      WR: Jerry Rice*, Don Hutson*, Lance Alworth*, Raymond Berry*.

      TE: none

      OL: Anthony Munoz*, John Hannah*, Jim Parker*, Roosevelt Brown*.


      ..and the defense

      DL: Reggie White*, Deacon Jones*, Mean Joe Greene*, Merlin Olsen*, Bob Lilly*, Gino Marchetti*, Buck Buchanon.

      LB: Lawrence Taylor*, Dick Butkus*, Jack Lambert*, Ray Lewis, Chuck Bednarik.

      DB: Ronnie Lott*, Deion Sanders, Night Train Lane*, Larry Wilson*, Ken Houston*.

      * = the 30 remaining players (offense and defense) from the NFL's 75th Anniversary All-Time Team.

      Assuming these 30 make it (though OJ Simpson might be dropped) that leaves 10 spots (11 if OJ gets the boot). Marino, Manning, Brady, Favre, Elway, Sanders, Emmitt, Lewis and Deion make up 9 locks imo.

      The last spots I see being a battle between Buchanon, Bednarik or maybe some old-timers like Sid Luckman and Bill George. I thought Steve Largent would make the Top 100 but its looking like he might miss out. Luckman, Largent and George were among the Top 50 of TSN's 100 Greatest Ever list from a decade ago- Bednarik was 54th, Buchanon 67th.

        • Can't believe they're seriously gonna leave Steve Largent off the list.

                To be fair he really couldn't bench that...if you watch his benching videos he both gets help on his lifts by ferociously incorrect spotting and also bounces the bar off his chest majorly..this is from memory as i haven't watched one in a while but i wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't lock out either...don't take it the wrong way the guy was an absolute BEAST but the strength numbers the media always talks about with him are total BS.

                • I just really hope that Barry is at least ten spots over Emmitt.

                  • Emmitt isn't even a top 5 RB all time, ya I said.

                    • The fact that Bradshaw is ahead of almost all of those people is disheartening. Once I saw he didn't make the 100-91 list, I didn't think he would be on it. Wow.

                      Emmitt in the 25-30 range, Barry in the 4-7 range please. Thanks.


                      Silverback....still the best.

                        Terry Bradshaw and Joe Nameth on the list well bradshaw should be somewhere in the 90s maybe

                          The preview for next week's show had Michael Irvin and Jerry Jones giving presentations. I have a feeling Emmitt and Deion will be on next week.

                          TSN's '100 Greatest Ever' from a decade ago had Barry at #12 and Emmitt at #68.

                          • I was right. Deion is on tonight's show (9pm EST) and he's furious and 'appalled' at being ranked 34th.

                            He thinks he should be ranked 4th. LOL

                              That was actually pretty hilarious. And I agree with him about himself and Rod Woodson. Both of those could be argued as the best CBs to ever play. And then Rod switched to safety and was still an All-Pro. Both of them are too low.

                              I don't know about #4. BUt there are a lot of complaints I could make about this list already.

                              • Bruce Smith is #31. For some reason I had it in my head that Smith was already selected.
