Good Morning Giants fans, it's the first Wednesday of the NFL off-season, and here are some of the stories making headlines around the NFL:
- Roger Goodell delivered the "State of the NFL" yesterday.
- This was a story I wanted to bring you last week, but my sinuses had me knocked out. Since 1996, 21 Ex-Pittsburgh Steelers under the age of 60 have passed away.
- Even when a Cowboy gets elected to the Hall of Fame, there is controversy.
- Another day, another mock, this one from Pete Schrager of Fox Sports. His choice for Giants 1st round pick would not surprise me.
- Stevie Defense is filling out his coaching staff in St.Louis.
- Here's a shock, Pro Bowlers want to keep their yearly free trip to Hawaii.
- CBS Sportsline says the Packers are still the greatest franchise of all time.
Final NFL Thoughts:
- There is still no one I would rather hear doing a big game than Al Michaels and John Madden. They are still the best in the biz.
- Granted, I'm a huge fan, but Bruce put on the best halftime show I've ever seen. Perfect set of songs, great interaction with the band, and energetic as always.
Final Un-NFL Thoughts:
- The Rangers did a great job last night with the retirement of Adam Graves Number 9. Nobody does ceremony better than Madison Square Garden. If you didn't get choked up watching Graves' son bawling as Number 9 went to the rafters, check your pulse.
- The Mets grossly overpaid for Oliver Perez. I'm sorry, I see no reason to think the Mets are any better than 85 wins.
