  1. Hey Josh,
    Maybe you should scroll down and read yesterday’s one liners before write, or maybe check with Rosenthal. Your one liner about Brunell wanting to play for the Saints again is exactly the same as yesterday’s, and there may be more that I didn’t notice. Just sayin’.

  2. A “16-0” banner honoring the Patriots’ 2007 regular season makes’s list of lamest arena and stadium banners.
    When I went to the stadium in 2008 I couldn’t believe I had seen this. Please Stacey James, please take this down.
    This is just as bad as the Colts having AFC Championship Participant banners…

  3. @footballnut:
    Why is it not an accomplishment to be the only 16-0 regular season perfect team ever? Not only did they go 16-0, they went 18-0. No one has ever done that. Not the 72 phins or the 85 bears.
    Just because they lost the SB by a FG? C’mon man. There’s always gonna be a loser and a winner in the SB, that day the Giants were the better team, and only by a lousy FG. I don’t think that should make a list of ‘worthless banners.’
    ESPN needs to find some other useless info to post–maybe ‘Westbrook’ will make another call to them. Anyone who can’t appreciate a 16-0 regular season record in a modern day schedule is either just a hater or an idiot. Yeah, it’s a shame (for them) that they didn’t win the last game, but that shouldn’t really take away from the accomplishment. ESPN once again looks like idiots.
