  1. Some o’ yo stories are a joke Florio….
    Taken from others….and nonsence..
    You look like a lolliepop with your big head and slight shoulders….NEVER forget how we see you.
    Hope Florio Jr. takes after his mom…luv ya.

  2. Why doesn’t Troy Polamalu spend some time working out or something to try to avoid injuries instead of making all of these commercials?

  3. Polamalu is obviously more concerned with getting his ugly mug on the tube than he is with playing football.

  4. somebody ought to give rosenthal a clue about how things work in philly. c’mon florio – i’ve heard you on the air on talk radio here enough that you should know that the majority of this town is sick of mcnabb’s act and after 11 years have seen all we need to see to know that this guy cannot come thru when it matters most. hence more support for vick than mcnabb. when vick comes on the field and in one play fires a strike that mcnabb would have put at a guy’s shoes, it’s time to move on. not to vick, but to kolb.

  5. Why are the Lions so frequently left off of your lists. Several times kept off the one-liners. Left out of the free agent list. Please try to cover all bases. I know I am about the only fan they have, but I do come here for information.

  6. Vick over McNabb. If you need a bunch of dogs tortured and killed sure Vick is your man, but to have as your starter over McNabb is moronic. I guess though that is what you would expect from a bunch of Eagle fans, stupid thoughts.

  7. Gregg Rosenthal says:
    “The numbers at FootballOutsiders would suggest Minnesota is actually a decent-sized underdog this week.”
    I know I’m getting old (I also look under 30 though I’m over…..nunyabusiness) but I’ve never heard of FootbalOutsiders before in my life. Seems PFT is starting to drop dimes for other start-ups without being upfront about it. Sure PFT doesn’t have to, but come on. If you want us (PFT Planet) to support some of you’re peeps, just tell us. We’ll comply. Bitches.

  8. r u kidding me?
    That is the link you provide to daily “Chargers” news.
    #2 seed
    11 game win streek
    no respect.

  9. Yes I remember the Bears not signing Kurt Warner because he only asked that he be given a fair shot at being the starter if he won the job over Rex Grossman.
    Always with your finger on the pulse eh Jerry?
    You da man!
