  1. I really enjoy the Player of the Week tie-in. The survey, combined with actual cards, great Roto-information and Panini community feedback, culminates in an experience that no other manufacturer provides.
    Accordingly, this is one of the many programs, initiatives and commitments that seperate Panini from the other brands.

  2. Torrey Smith’s performance was instrumental in a critical in-Division victory. Von Miller is a nightmare in cleats, no dispute. But aside from FB Charles Clay, every other candidate was on the losing end of the tilt. Had the Broncs’ won that game, I would absolutely have voted for “Von Monster” over Smith. In my mind, game outcome should factor into the voting.

  3. Yikes!!! Egregious error there. I’m uncertain why I thought he’d lost that game. Alright, I own my incorrect comment. My foot is a size 71/2 and coincidentally, so is my mouth.
    Nevertheless, Smith was Flacco’s go-to in that game, it was a remarkable offensive performance from the rook’ receiver, his second such of the season, his play prevented the D from cramming the box and stopping Rice. Comparing the contributions defensive players make to those of a Skill Position Player is really tough.
    Thanks for pointing that out. I regret the lack of an “edit post” option Tracy 8)

    1. No worries at all. Besides, I’m the king of errors around these parts. Besides, given the Broncos’ string of pre-Tebow losses, who could blame anyone for thinking the Broncos lost?

      You’re still aces in my book, man.

  4. Come on now!! if Locker didn’t win for his off the bench almost comeback….let’s give Von Miller some love and a revote or a recount!!! He should have been a winner. They must have used the Florida voting system! 🙂

    My picks for nominees for week 12:
    Andy Dalton
    Cam Newton (predicted winner)
    Roy Helu
    Von Miller
    Julio Jones
