That has to be an all-time best for us having five make the cuts.

Anyone know how many guys we have on Canadian League rosters?

Bullshit - There is absolutely no chance of Tanny being let go by the Jets.

Griffin cut today by the Jets while dealing with a high ankle sprain.

Boooooooooo, Tannenbaum!!!

Also, looks like Ducasse has lost the battle at LG again to Matt Slauson.

Jets have another mediocre 3-ring circus season where the Sanchez-Tebow experiment blows up in their face Tanny will certainly be on the hot seat along with Rex Ryan.

Ducasse and Slauson have been jousting for that position for the past couple of years. Sorry to see that happen again.

Igwenagu was re-signed by the Eagles to their practice squad.

Couldn't find any other UMass names out there.

So the national media, in most places I've seen, are all over P. Manning as the NFL MVP. Now, I don't care too very much about this type of stuff, but I care a little bit. And I can't for the life of me figure out how the hell someone would have Manning over Brady. The only explanation is the "story" of Manning coming back from injury, which I don't think should be a part of the discussion. THat's what Comeback Player is for.

Numbers are nearly identical....except for the small fact that Manning has 150% MORE INTERCEPTIONS, arguably the most important stat.

Oh...and the teams have the same record, although the Pats SOS is much stronger....and they beat the Broncos pretty convincingly H2H.

I just don't see a valid argument. Most places now at least acknowledge that Brady is a close second....but to me, he's the clear #1.
