The NFL anti-top 10s

    NFL Network has a show -- if you have NFL Network, you've been beaten over the head with it -- where they rank top 10's in various esoteric NFL categories. Top 10 pass rushers, characters, teams, etc. They're lightweight, dubiously ranked, and like similar ESPN projects, way too skewed to the present, but still, it's an entertaining hour of TV if you're not otherwise entertained.

    The problem is all the shows are nicey, non-controversial lists. Where are the top 10 steroid users? Top 10 felons? Top 10 dumbest players? Top 10 asshole coaches?

    Well ... it's here. Have at it folks. I'll start ...

    Top 10 Interviews That Will Follow Steve Mariucci's Hard-Hitting NFL Network Interview With Brett Favre:

    10. Tony Dungy's biting Q&A with Peyton Manning.
    9. Michael Strahan's expose on his own single-season sack record.
    8. Re-animated Charlton Heston gets to the bottom of Plaxico Burress' gun issues.
    7. An incomplete pass and an interception team up to get inside the mind of JaMarcus Russell.
    6. Jimmy The Greek rises from the grave and talks tough about gambling with Art Schlichter.
    5. A piece of rebar explores the fantabulous world of Bill Belichick's personality.
    4. Gary Glitter's poignant interview with Mark Chmura.
    3. Satan chats up Rae Carruth.
    2. Spuds McKenzie and Alex from Stroh's can't leave Michael Vick alone with that funky cold one-on-one medina ...
    1. Sam Mills51 comes hard at Jake Delhomme. (I kid, I kid!) :D :D :D

    MLB Network, as usual, blows them out of the water. Their equivalent is called "Prime 9," and it's so much more even-handed in terms of past vs. present.

    One of my few regrets in having Dish as opposed to DirecTV is my lack of MLB Network. But hey! I get NBATV now!

    Not wasting my valuable thoughts on a Top 10 list, but this thread reminds me of coming across Peter King tonight on NBC and him "reporting" that he recently spoke to Brett Favre about his big game in Lambeau and "Favre reminded me that he plays well in big games." Oh, did he now. ::)

    Wow. Just... wow.

    How about:
    • Gary Glitter sits down (strike that: stands up) with Art Modell to discuss what it feels like to tear up an anus.
    • Najeh Davenport visits the studio with Martha Stewart to discuss his favorite laundry tips.

    The NFL Network list show did have episodes on worst teams, worst coaches, and biggest draft busts, FWIW.

    Top 10 lists? Fox Sports would never do that.

    I love these shows. They`re predictable and low-carb, but generally quite watchable.

    With any of those shows, it's not "Top 10 (blank) of all time," it's "Top 10 (blank) we have footage of."

    ESPN is particularly guilty of this. If it didn't happen in their 30-year history, it didn't happen.

    You mean because Otto Graham never makes any of the top QB lists? I agree completely.
