    How you feeling about that Von Miller pick? I think he was a great choice.

    Why are some of them being skipped? Do they not get rookie cards?

    Panini has to be hating the way the first round went. None of the top position players went to “hobby-friendly” markets which is going to translate to less demand for their rookie-heavy products (which is basically all Panini makes). The teams with huge hobby followings went with linemen and CBs for the most part.

    Going to be a rough year for FB products…

    I’m hoping we’ll get the variants too — would love to see Von Miller holding up the Broncos jersey! The Tebow variant was my favorite card from all of last season.

    just try to run on the Lions now 🙂

    Ponder went in the first round ??? hmmmm ….. makes me wonder how “thin” this years draft class is ….. thought he’d be a third rounder 😦

    Hope you’re having a great time in New York Tracy 🙂

    Great idea on the cards, but the design makes some of the players look like they have breasts.

      LOL!! Now that is funny! I will not be able to look at these cards with out thinking that now.

    no logos on the helmets?
    thats cause another company has a deal with CLC or something right.
    i look forward to seeing my old high school bud jordan todman go tonight!
