While listening to Rich Eisen and Dan Patrick during the final hour of Friday’s aptly-named Dan Patrick Show, I experienced a rare moment of inspiration. Of course, the inspiration originated with Eisen and Patrick, but if we can copy-and-paste stories, then we can copy-and-paste inspiration, too.
They were discussing various teams that could be candidates for this year’s edition of Hard Knocks, assuming that the lockout actually ends in time for Hard Knocks to be filmed — and assuming that the world doesn’t end, as scheduled, tomorrow.
So we decided, borrowing from the EA/ESPN Madden 12 cover tourney inspiration, to launch a series of polls to determine the team that PFT Planet wants to see on the show. We’ll do one for each division, then we’ll do one for the division winners in each conference, then we’ll pit the AFC and NFC winner against each other.
First up, NFC East. Have at it.
