Stlrz D, I'm stealing your thunder.


CAST YOUR VOTE FOR THE BOOMER ESIASON AWARD
Posted by Mike Florio on March 10, 2009, 4:16 p.m.

We’re down to the last our our PFT Heroes awards for the 2008 season.

The final piece of imaginary hardware goes to the best quarterback from the prior season, and the award is named for our friend Boomer Esiason, a long-time NFL starting quarterback who has continued to be connected in the football business (via television and radio) while operating the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which is dedicated to the fight against cystic fibrosis.

The finalists (as picked by us) are Kurt Warner of the Cardinals, Peyton Manning of the Colts, Drew Brees of the Saints, Donovan McNabb of the Eagles, Chad Pennington of the Dolphins, Philip Rivers of the Chargers, and Ben Roethlisberger of the Steelers.

Vote for your pick at the front page of the site. We’ll leave the polls open for a day or so, and then we possibly will narrow it down to a two-man or three-man runoff.

So far, Ben has only one vote -- mine. Looking forward to watching Steelers fans destroy yet another poll.

I forgot this originally -- here is the link:

Too funny! When I saw the thread title I was actually going to make a joke about me being the guy who starts the poll threads around here. :P I don't bother with PFT.com though because I don't like Florio.

Here's the link that my "fill in" didn't provide though...just scroll down a bit. http://www.profootballtalk.com/ :lol:

Btw, Kurt Warner has a huge lead right now.

It's like I thought I could fill in for Sid moving cars from one side of the street to another while they were filming a Woody Allen movie down the block. :lol: :lol:

breese is running away with it.

At least he'll win something this year. I'll settle for the QB that wins actual games.

Ben's now in third! 8)

And for the record, since this is from profootballtalk, I hate Mike Florio.

Brees? WTF. Who would vote for him? It's not like the Saints have alot of fans. Maybe Brees is voting for himself over and over again.

Coming up just a hair short of Marino's passing yardage record tends to stick out in the mind of folks who focus on stats.
