Links

I'm still traveling and now working on a pretty big piece for the site, so I'm just throwing up links today:

Floria gets something right. The AFC North will have a rough season. I say 10-6 wins it.

Seifert is correct as well. The whole season hinges on the question he asks about the Colts. We've been saying for weeks...it's the one and only issue with this club. Good news and we hoist Lombardi in February. Bad news and we win 12 games, the division, and exit the playoffs early.

Doug Farrar of FO looks at the Jags. He rightly sights their D (not their O) as the issue standing between them and the next level. I would love to see them move to a blitz crazy D. Sounds like a recipe for big games from Manning.

You probably made this post before the article was public, becuase otherwise, I know you would have linked to this post on ESPN, celebrating the fact that we will never have to listen to Billy Packer do another Final Four again.

Frustration alert! MSNBC has a headline "Peyton Manning has procedure on left knee" but the links are all dead.

Anybody got anything to keep me from weeping myself to sleep tonight?

Gracias,

Hmmm, Looks like a bursa sac was removed from Peyton's left knee.

good ole NFL.com

4-6 weeks out. I suspect they waited till the last moment to see if the conservative therapy worked, so as to not jeopardize the start of the season. And in the end, he needed something a litle more robist done. This is not a good thing, but probably not too bad.

Pro Football Prospectus 2008 arrived in the mail today. I've spent the last 5 hours reading it and posting my thoughts

Great stuff as always.

Shake,
Awesome summation. Clint Session awsul against the pass? I seem to recall a few balletic INTs, one followed by a (whistled dead) 95 yard return.

The most injured team went 13-3 and had the #2 seed? Aye Caramba!

It doesn't give extra credit for picks. In the very limited time he played he gave up a lot of receptions and allowed a lot of yards. Those picks were amazing. It's such a small sample It doesn't been much.
