Is That … Football? OH MY GOD!!!!

It was nice to see some actual, live NFL football last night, even if no one knew who was on the field past the 5-minute mark of the first quarter. But for this nation, it’s something. Get ready for four more games on Thursday.

And sure, everyone was watching TO. He looked good running a slant route and an out route. Vince Young didn’t do himself many favors in fulfilling his Hall of Fame prophecy from earlier in the week and a punter pulled off what could already be the coolest play in the entire 2009-10 season. You can see all of that everywhere … including here.

But above all of that, one thing caught my eye: Who put Shaun Rogers in Alge Crumpler’s jersey?

You’ve heard that LenDale White lost 20 pounds in the offseason. It looked like all of it got injected into Alge. Maybe it was the powder-blue uniforms, but he looked like a crystal-clear lake in the middle of Canton, Ohio.

best tight ends with the Falcons. He won me many fantasy football matchups through the years, so I am forever in his debt.

And he’s always been a guy up around the 250-to-260-pound area. But holy enchilada supreme, Batman! Talk about offseason weight gain. He has to be up around 300 now. He HAS to be.

It’s a shame that I can’t find a picture of Crumpler from last night. Yet if I did, I’m not sure It would fit in this field.

That’s what I’ll remember most about last night.

Oh well. The NFL is back! That feels good, no matter how out of shape you are.
