A project "of epic proportion" is coming from NFL Films: "The Top 100: NFL's Greatest Players." It will be presented as a series of 10 one-hour shows starting next Friday. So, who will be deciding just who the 100 best-ever NFL players are going to be?

To lend the list a heft you would expect from NFL Films, a panel of 85 football experts was used to winnow a list of 250 players from the modern and pre-modern era, including current National Football League players.

A spokeswoman for the NFL Network declined to disclose all the names of the voting panel, but there is at least one voter connected to the Green Bay Packers. Former Packers general manager Ron Wolf, who has a sturdy understanding of the history of pro football, is on the panel.

Others in the group include former New York Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi, NBC Sports analyst Cris Collinsworth, Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown, former NFL sportscaster Pat Summerall, former NFL coach Dick Vermeil and NFL writer Peter King.

I'm not sure who surprises me more, Mike or Peter King. But in either event, I'm hearing that old Sesame Street tune, which of these things does not belong?
