    Am I missing something? (It’s early, I haven’t had my coffee yet!)

    Dude, I know I’ve only had one cup of coffee & my kid’s crying in the other room, but I clicked the link and the Playbook crew all picked the Jets.

    Hey Prater, try that record kick at a stadium that isn’t a mile high and we won’t put an asterisk * by it.
    Otherwise it’s not as impressive as Dempsey’s. Elam*

    I know this must’ve been said before, but there is no way “mustbejealousof6″ is an actual Steeler fan. As a diehard Steeler fan myself, I’ve never met anyone as purposefully annoying as him.

    Apparently, Matt Millen originally took the Jaguars because with Blaine Gabbert, “the Jaguars roster is capable of making a deep playoff run,” then changed his pick after the producer whispered in his ear that Luke McCown was the starter.

    I think it should have read:

    “Should have picked the Jags over the Jets”

    Geez, Otah injured… What a surprise, we’ll be lucky if he plays 3 games this year!

    Water covers 70% of the Earth, Ed Reed covers the rest.

    Polamalu had a nice season last year. Reed played only 10 games and STILL had the most INTs in the league.
