    Ravens PR staff is on fire with all the Beshard Perriman puff pieces this offseason. You would think this guy was Randy Moss by their stories.

    the travails of being fantasy football ready in June.

    I can’t believe the Patriots don’t win this every year, since they’re so forthcoming with the media. 😉

    As a Texans season ticket holder, I can say the front office top to bottom is Super Bowl caliber in their best and worst years. I just wish one of them could play quarterback. 🙂
