Gregg Easterbrook doesn't have the New York Times to kick around anymore, now that the Times has ceased its practice of picking the exact final score for each game. Here's hoping Gregg turns his eye on our old buddy B. Duane Cross, who tells us that the Packers will beat the Colts 24-21 in overtime on Sunday, as well as his projected final score for each NFL game. He also tells us that he has a 6-year-old daughter named Peyton. It kind of makes me feel sad to think of B. Duane as an actual human being with a daughter and everything. Almost like I shouldn't make fun of him anymore. Almost.
What do you call a fifth-round rookie WR with real expectations? Tajae Sharpe, and there may not be another player like him in NFL history. Tennessee's poor history of developing wideouts has led to a rare opportunity that Sharpe can seize this season.
