Jackie spent several minutes watching pre-season NFL, and can’t believe there are only 5 more games each.  Sweet.  Is there anything better than betting the over/under on Detroit/KC in a meaningless preseason game, where no-names are all over the field.

Then again, bad example, cuz those two teams always play meaningless games with no-names.

Anyway, according to the 45 hours of daily coverage on the WWL, Jackie knows football is back. So why not one-up Jay Glazer with my earlier than early pre-season awards.

Comeback player of the year
For sheer volume, I have to go Brett Favre.  Jackie admits being torn on this one.  Half of me is sick of this douchebag’s takeover of the league media. Half of me thinks he should play for as long as people want to pay him.  And half of me will kinda laugh when he finally does come back, and tosses an ill-timed pick or pulls a hammy in the first series.  Way to clusterfuck your season before it starts Minny.

Best Teammate
Mike Vick.  He just single-handedly gave every Iggle a reason to blame a bad season on.  Lose a close game?  Vick was a distraction.  Lose a playoff game, media coverage of Vick blew it.  Love it.

Most likely to get tasered
My sleeper pick, I’m going with the entire Raider organization.  I know Cincy is the easy choice.  And somewhere Pacman is making it rain, trying to restore his cred.  But seriously, I know the jumpsuit wearing grandmother Al Davis wants to restore the image of the Raiders as the class of the league (with respect to boneheaded players). So don’t be surprised if a Raider steps up and impresses the old man with an ill-timed f-bomb blast to law authorities.

Who cares?

Coach of the Year
Josh McDaniels. Anyone new coach that can run his chise QB out of town, ‘before’ the first practice has Jackie excited about the potential to be really really horrific.  Can’t wait til this guy cuts a guy after he drops a ball or fumbles.  It’ll be like watching Bobby Knight on the sidelines.  Minus the bitterness, sweater, and winning percentage.

Lamest NFL production
Now that the draft is only 14 days long, its not really eligible.  Plus this is a regular season award show.  So it comes down to this:  the lame SuperBowl halftime show. Or the equally lame NFL kickoff weekend.  Quick quiz:  Which NFL kickoff did Bon Jovi perform at?  Trick question:  all of them.  Or at least it seems like it.

Hottest Cheerleader
I know, there really are no wrong answers.  But here’s my top candidate to date.
Any suggestions, come to the website and leave me a note (, and if it includes a Charlie Weis heckle I will definitely respond.
