Originally I was going to try and get a full post out of Suh and Larry (via Suh's Twitter account, seen right) and the whole "big boy" thing was aimed at Deuce (see: No. 2 below). Then I realized that it was something the Cable Guy might say and that I definitely don't have 300 words in my brain that revolve around that picture.
We will, however, accept captions in the comments or via twitter (@CBSSportsNFL) , where you may also send tips for the Hot Routes.
- Ndamukong Suh and Larry the Cable Guy are both Nebraska fan buddies and they hung out in HIS suite over the weekend. So. Freaking. Weird.
- Deuce Lutui will get loose at right guard for Arizona , despite heavy concerns (literally) about his weight keeping him from performing at an expected level. Said Lutui, it's "not the first time I've been called fat. It's one of those things, as a big boy, you have to live with."
- Apparently, Josh Freeman was in some sort of limbo with his thumb injury where he might miss Week 1 against the Browns. I just kind of always assumed he would start. He probably will, but still .
- The Steelers, unsurprisingly, aren't going to lean on Dennis Dixon to win their opener. Instead, Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that it's time for Rashard Mendenhall to put the burden on his shoulders and win some games for the Steel Ciy.
- My buddy RJ Bell of Pregame.com points out that the Colts are expected to be favored in 15 of their 16 games this year (the lone exception being their game at New England), while the Lions are only expected to be favored in ONE game, when they play the Rams in Week 5 at home. These expectations, remember, don't judge future performance (necessarily) ... just expectations.
- So, there's apparently a chance that Tim Tebow might not play in Jacksonville, as according to the Denver Post , he and Brady Quinn are still battling it out for the No. 2 quarterback spot. There might be a full-on revolt at Everbank Stadium if that happens.
- The Onion breaks down the NFL team-by-team . It is, duh, hysterical. As is the news that all 32 teams declared themselves "underdogs headed into the 2010 season."
- Bleeding Green Nation explains why the Eagles have no shot at winning, and it involves the greatest Aaron Rodgers tribute song of all-time .
- Hue Jackson, the Raiders offensive coordinator, helped get T.J. Houshmandzadeh from Seattle to Baltimore. Weird .
