It’s Nick Mangold’s turn in NFL Network’s megawatt spot.
Mangold, the Jets Pro Bowl center, will be one of the featured players when NFLN rolls out Nos. 50-41 of “The Top 100: Players of 2011″ on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET. Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is the presenter for Mangold, who has been selected for the last three AFC Pro Bowl rosters and has yet to miss a regular-season or playoff start in his five-year NFL career.
“The Top 100″ is a countdown show of the top players from the past season, as voted on by the players themselves. At 7 p.m. Sunday, before the Top 100 show, the network will air its recap show. Host Lindsay Soto, analysts Kurt Warner and Charles Davis and in-studio guest analysts Antonio Gates (Chargers), Darren Sharper (Saints) and Ronde Barber (Buccaneers) will review the first 50 players to be revealed and discuss which players might be included in the top 50.
Two Jets already have taken their bows. In the third episode, left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson checked in at No. 79 and wide receiver Santonio Holmes stepped up three picks later at No. 76.
And if those two shows don’t give you enough Top 100 for your Sunday night, at 9 p.m. the same analysts will continue with “The Top 100: Players of 2011 Reactions,” offering a closer look at the latest players featured in the series. All in all, it should be a good night of TV for friends, family and fans of No. 74.
