At, Walter Payton makes their list of the top 25 NFL players of the last 25 years. "At the time of his retirement after the 1987 season, Payton was the NFL record-holder in career rushing yards, career yards from scrimmage, career rushing touchdowns, rushing yards in one game and most seasons with 1,000 or more rushing yards. He missed just one game to injury in his 13-year career." See where USA Today has Payton ranked on the list Right Here ...

At, Bill Barnwell ranks the 16 best teams in terms of wide receivers and tight ends heading into this season. "While tight end Desmond Clark had a surprisingly effective season, he's not likely to keep that up, and with that in mind, the Bears added 'G-Reg' Greg Olsen in the first round out of Miami. Miami tight ends tend to be a safe bet, but Olsen doesn't have the star power of Kellen Winslow. The hidden player? Former second-round pick Mark Bradley, who posted fantastic numbers but can't stay healthy. If Chicago's passing attack takes a big step forward in 2007, he's the likeliest reason." See where the Bears rank on their list Right Here ...

At, Larry Mayer interviews DB coach Steven Wilks about the prospects for Mike Brown & Company this season "He is the complete package. As I mentioned, he’s a leader and he’s also a student of the game. He puts himself in great position to make plays as well as communicating to get other guys lined up and get them going. It’s just a major plus for us. He’s such a student of the game." Read the rest of Mayer's interview with Wilks Right Here ...

Here at, Jeremy Stoltz wraps up his five-part series delving into the history of offensive football. "The natural evolution of the T led to the formation that is now used by every team at every level of football: the pro set. Instead of motioning a back to the sidelines, offensive coordinators began placing that player out wide at the outset of the play. The player was dubbed the 'flanker' and soon became a staple of nearly every offensive formation." Read the rest of Stoltz Right Here ...
