    Ben Tate, Duane Brown, and JJ Watt also made the team.

    He's nuts. I broke my right fibula when I was 10 and crumbled to the ground like a little b***ch. Well I did sorta get hit by a small Toyota but still, it's not like I was getting right back up to go against 300+ lb. dudes soon after. That takes some grand cojones.

    Kudos to all the Texans that made the squad, as we still recieved less recognition than the Broncos who were blown out in their first game so this is nice to see.

    All Joe team is good stuff. It is pretty awesome that Brisiel is the headliner. Thanks for the link.

    I saw this segment on Real Sports the other night about the drug Todarol and its use in the NFL. Todarol is the painkiller NFL teams inject their players with before games. The players they interviewed talked about how it made them feel like invincible for 3 hours. I wonder if Briesel had used this and is why he was able to finish that game on a broken leg.

    I absolutely hate the Broncos, but they did win a playoff game.

    Oh sh** I totally forgot about Pitt losing to them. My bad, but they still got blown out by a wide margin. F*** them.
