The NFL Network recently released a portion of its Top 100 Players of 2012 list, and you know what that means — absolutely nothing. The list is merely a topic for fans, analysts and bloggers like us to analyze and interpret. For players, it can serve as either a pat on the back or a motivational tool. After being ranked No. 70 on this year’s list, Michael Vick will be using for the latter.
“Yeah, that’s a joke,” Vick said when asked about the list during an interview with 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia. “I won’t say where I need to be, I’ll let my peers and everybody else decide on that. It was voted on by the peers, but I just disagree. … Thank you, because they’ve motivated me to become a better player this year, so I’ll have that in the back of my mind as I go out and play this year as well.”
The fans voted Vick No. 43, so obviously he gets a bit more respect there. If the list is based on last season’s performance, Vick’s position is tough to argue. However, Peyton Manning

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick is aware of his landing spot on the NFL Network’s continuing countdown of the top players of 2012. And he is not pleased with it.

In news that is sure to overshadow the Jacksonville Jaguars announcement that they’re merging with Crash Bandicoot, the Philadelphia Eagles have entered into a partnership with the Angry Birds. I’m serious.
So far, the announcement has only included two things: a “Philadelphia Eagle” character you can use in upcoming Angry Birds games and this video of Andy Reid welcoming...
Alas, another player thinking this NFL Top 100 thing is a joke. But, I do have to give them credit, they make these rankings based off of the players that supposedly vote, and make them a list out of it. It’s dumb, but it gets fans and players going on it, thus bringing in more views and discussion.
Today on 97.5 the fanatic, Eagles QB Michael Vick sat down and talked with Mike...

He has also had to play against Vick a lot in recent...
Without a doubt, Cam Newton‘s rookie season will go down in the record books as one of the best by a rookie QB in the history of the NFL. However, it is said that it is harder to stay at the top than it is to actually get there, as we have seen many spectacular campaigns being followed by something rather mediocre. Now that coaches and players have seen what Newton brings to...
I’ve tried the past five years to keep my criticism of Michael Vick in check. People constantly get onto me for saying that the guy “made a mistake” and he “paid his debt to society” and that he earned his second chance and I should get on board with that.
As a retired breeder and owner of multiple Doberman Pinscher’s, I’m sorry but that was just something I could...
The Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of their mandatory mini-camp, the last set of practices for the team until they convene at Lehigh University in late July for training camp. Having undergone three OTAs, head coach Andy Reid has a good feel for where his team is and where they need to be before the start of the season.
Reid also knows what’s motivating the squad. And...
In this week’s Face/Off, it’s a matchup of mobile quarterbacks and former #1 overall picks in Philadelphia’s Michael Vick against Carolina’s Cam Newton. I’ll tell you why you should take Cam Newton and not even second guess it.

Robert Griffin III might be a budding franchise cornerstone similar to Michael Vick when he entered the league in 2001, but the comparison ends there, according to Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall. I feel like hes light years ahead of Michael Vick because he understands mentally what it takes to be great," Hall said recently on Washington's 980 ESPN Radio (via sportsradiointerviews...
