I musta missed the 3rd question. For me, something as simple as showing gratitude to the cafeteria ladies is refreshing and shows ya a glimpse of the man behind the mask. Love the draft picks as long as ONE of these guys show a knack for harrassing QBs!

Since he's a developmental player surely he's headed toward special teams.

When are they taking the halters off of the trio of the injured: Biermann, Johnson, and Peters?

Biermann 2.0, akin to the open source version of Microsoft Office. Interesting to see how he shakes out.

Can anybody at the AJC ask the man himself how his parents spelled his name on the birth certificate and then just go with that?
