  1. Dalton has looked good. just posted to panini wall the pic and my explanation of why dalton should win. I really like the look of this weeks cards. sweet job panini!!

    1. Also posted on my wall as well. I see you are a huge Broncos fan Tracy, what are your thoughts on Von Miller this season? Are you surprised he hasnt done enough to be in the running for a vote?

      1. Don’t know that he’s had a ROW-type performance yet but he is having a great rookie season and I hope he’s a dynamic performer for the Broncos’ defense for a long time to come.

      2. He should be Tracy. If he turns out to be like he was in College. Of course I never did get to ask you your opinion on Tebow being named starting QB?

  2. Week 7 predictions…for nominees….Daniel Thomas, Cam Newton, Demarco Murray, D. Bowers ( who doesnt sack Jay Cutler??) and Mark Ingram. What do you think of my picks Tracy?

      1. I think Demarco Murray will come out and have an awesome week against the Rams. He is my pick for the winner. Hopefully the 5 nominees i chose are the finals. And another question, has the special payoff at the end of the season for voting on the players and the prizes throughout the season been announced? I vote either way but with this possible added bonus from Panini it makes it even more exciting.
