    Hey Russell, love the Draft Busts list. I posted other possibilities for other teams because I like discussions about this kind of stuff, so I hope you don't think I'm questioning your list in a mean way. I'm a big fan of your articles, keep up the good work.

    #PanthersPride!

    My name is Matthew Tyndall and I work for a local production company in Charlotte called, Priceless Misc. As a team of die-hard Carolina fans, we have been so excited about the Panthers’ season success and wanted to find a way to show our Panther pride all over the internet. After a couple weeks of work, we created a free emoji keyboard that we call, Purrmoji. This keyboard features fan-favorites like The Dab, Stone Faced Ron Rivera and Charlotte’s beloved Disco Chicken.

    Since it’s release on Tuesday January 19th, we have had 10K+ users and climbing as we get closer to Sunday’s big game! It’s quickly becoming a viral hit in Charlotte.

    Fans are loving Purrmoji and we can’t wait to see how they use them during the NFC Championship. If you would like to talk more about our keyboard, or would like quotes from it’s creators, feel free to reach out to me. You can download Purrmoji from at http://purrmoji.com/.

    Every article you post about the bears makes it clear how much you really know about the bears. From draft night it was expected that Goldman would start opening day, barring an injury. We dont have anyone else to play that position as effectively especially after cutting MacDonald.... If i were u i would change that Goldman pick to either Marques Wilson at wr or Hnoris Grasu @@ center if u want to gain any sort of credibility with Bears fans. I know it takes a lot of time and u probably have time constraints but chicago is a big market man

    "Over-/underachievers" was an inspiring read. Thank you!

    The Fins worst move was cutting Hartline? He's been awful since his knee surgery. They replaced him and his bloated contract with DeVante Parker. I'd say that's a huge upgrade.
