Lance Briggs makes list of NFL’s top 100 players of 2011

Lance Briggs ranks at no. 92 in The Top 100 Players of 2011.

Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs was voted to a list of the top 100 players in the NFL of 2011 at number 92 in a poll conducted by NFL Network where current league players cast their votes.

Briggs was presented in the segment by current Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz.

Watch Patrick Willis talk about why Briggs is one of the best linebackers in the league.

Briggs was elected to his six consecutive Pro Bowl last season, becoming just the sixth player in Bears history to do so.

“The position he plays is very demanding,” defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli told “It’s a playmaking position and that’s all Lance has always done. He makes plays and has great instincts. He’s always ready to play, and he’s a performer.”

There are four more Bears players left in the Top 100.
