Chris: Man, this place doesn't even have wireless internet! Can you wish everyone a Happy 4th on the site?
Ah, such is life in small town North Carolina. Chris is with Ms. AP's family and I'll be heading out to Ms. Primetime's family function in Pomona, KS. Fireworks, BBQ and beer (and Ms. Primetime is driving!)...I'm excited.
Happy 4th of July to everyone. Thanks to everyone for reading, commenting and posting (especially NJChiefsFan and GenericBrand for tearing it up in the FanShots recently) as we get through the dead zone of the NFL season.
After the jump are some good links to get you going today as we continue to wait the final 36 days to Canton...
USA Junior National team is far and away the best in the country:
The United States' dominance in the 2009 IFAF Junior World Championship continued Wednesday as Team USA followed up their 78-0 victory over France by defeating Mexico 55-0 in the second round of the inaugural tournament before a crowd of 11,218 fans at Fawcett Stadium.
Next up is Canada in the gold medal game on Sunday.
"Not knocking JaMarcus or anybody else on the team, but I just have a belief in my own abilities. [That has] me feeling I am the best quarterback on the team. That's just how I approach the game."
Overrated: RB Larry Johnson. He isn't close to being what he was a few years back. Elite? Not anymore.
Underrated: WR Dwayne Bowe. He is a big, fluid receiver who would be a marquee name anywhere else. He makes it look easy when he runs.
