Number 11 - Unspoken Repect


Recommended Posts

When I was a kid, there were a bunch of players who wore #32. My Pops told me they did it because Jimmy Brown was a dog and that was his number with the Browns. Since then, every basketball team has a #23 (Michael Jordan's number, which was his way to show his big brother respect by taking a number that was half of his number, #45) and every team in football has a cornerback who wears #21 (for obvious reasons).

Is it just me, or does it seem like every NFL team now has a receiver wearing #11? I'm not saying that nobody did before Julio, by I'll bet nobody can tell me who without Googling to find out. Respect!

And tomorrow, it all begins. I'm giddy with the heady rush of excitement, y'all. And the more things change the more they will always be the same. Consider:

Ryan throws an 8-yard pass to Freeman for 2nd and 2. TATF will see:

Poster 1: Julio was open

Poster 2: Good play

Poster 3: Coleman would've scored

Poster 4: Noodle arm

Poster 5: Why isn't Stone playing center?

Poster 6: Hope we don't try to run for the first down

Poster 7: I need to start a thread about that play

Poster 8: I need to start a thread about that play

Poster 9: /troffed

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Hope you're all ready for some football.
