He was a "little" and wants to payback the group that got him on the road to the NFL.

As a payback he offered up a game worn jersey and pants for the half time raffle. Make a donation and get a chance in the raffle.

Well darned if I didn't win the jersey and pants! Not an Eagles fan, but I may have to be rooting for them this year.

Wife says I have to model them.
Congrat's. Very cool of your wife to be a "Big", as you put it.

If I may, though, I'd like to suggest you come up with some way of convincing your wife she's look much better in said jersey, with the bottom knotted above the waist and some game-day style black under-eye smear applied just so. You will thank me.

What's your teams schedule look like?

Broncos--open on Sunday night against Pittsburgh. Hope Peyton is ready.
I think the Steelers may be a wee bit peeved for some reason.

Then travel to Atlanta for MNF.

week 5 at New England

host the very difficult to gauge Saints week 8.

at Carolina-- which I think could be a potential up and comer week 10

and host the Ravens.

Looks like it could be a pretty tough year.

Mortensen agrees (found this after I typed mine )

ESPN Insider:

Quote:
Top 5 Hardest Schedules
1. Denver Broncos
2012 Odds: 51.3%
Random Schedule Odds: 58.5%
Difference: -7.2%

Manning is recovering from a season-long injury and has big, er, highly regarded shoes to fill in Denver. Add the Broncos' 2012 schedule to his list of obstacles. The Broncos, after finishing first in the West last season, will face the other No. 1 teams in the AFC -- New England, Houston and Baltimore. In addition to their division games, the AFC West faces the AFC North -- a division that sent three teams to the playoffs last season -- and the NFC South. Between the Saints, Falcons, up-and-coming Panthers and the renovated Bucs, the NFC South grades out to be one of the top divisions in the NFL next season.
I'm not an insider, so couldn't read any further.

Steelers fan, and while I like our schedule (provided Big Ben keeps it zipped), I think it will be a bit snoozy at the end of the season. Week 11 vs the Ravens, then @ Browns, then @ Ravens. That 3 week stretch is probably going to determine who wins the AFC North.

Random Predictions:
- Atlanta sucks this year. Carolina wins the NFC South.
- Peyton Manning will not be what he was in the past.
- Tebow starts by mid-season, Rex Ryan gets fired.
- Mediocre season for the Cowboys, Garrett gets fired.

Lots of football tourism for me this season. Flying out to Dallas to see my Steelers. Going to take in one Falcons game. And going to see the Jags play the Bears.

I'd like for you to be right about Carolina. But I keep hearing that this will be Matt Ryan's year. We'll see.

Oh, and Tebow will start before game 6. I don't see Rex getting fired but I think he'll put a knife in Sanchez. And the Jets still won't make the playoffs.

That is why I switched my primary sports info sites to SI.com and NBCSports.com.

Actually spend little time at ESPN.com--- see them as a sports promotion organization rather than a sports reporting. Had googled something like "toughest 2012 NFL schedule" and found that.

I agree, SI.com-- but then for me, its CBSSports.com

I hadn't been to CBS Sports for a long time. When did the actually add content instead of just AP wire stuff? I might add it to the rotation.
