  1. Hey Stevie, you’re my favorite Bill, but you shouldn’t need game costing wake up calls to prevent you from being lackadasical for a limited amount of time. Remember when you were a 7th round, practice squad nobody, and you worked your tail off for 2 years to prove you belonged to be on the roster? You’re one and only wake up call was your TD drop in overtime against Pittsburgh. It’s time to prove your more than a roster-worthy complimentary WR. Put up or shut up.

  2. “Panthers LB Luke Kuechly will have his hands full with Saints TE Jimmy Graham this weekend.”

    I see what you did there.
