    I really like the part where they talked about the Harbaugh's being brothers. I always assumed it was a coincidence

    [Former Dallas VP of Player Personnel Gil] Brandt, who currently appears on SiriusXM NFL Radio, said Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones and [Calvin] Johnson are the league's top receivers. However, Brandt believes Jones is better than Johnson.

    "Not to be flippant about it, but I think some people like strawberry ice cream and some people like vanilla. They're both pretty good," Brandt said. "Some like red heads and some like blondes. They're good. I think if you took 10 people, probably six of the 10 would take Johnson, and four, including myself, would take Julio Jones.

    "I think you have to say things when you feel that way," Brandt said. "I'm not saying Calvin Johnson is not a good player. You're asking me if I would rather have Don Shula or Tom Landry as my coach. You're not going to go wrong with either one, but you can only have one."

    "I think that 'A', Julio's got better hands," Brandt said. "I think that he's got stronger hands is what he has. I think he's a little more fluid than Johnson is. I think Johnson is faster. I think Johnson is just a little bit taller. Julio has less drops than Johnson."

    I wouldn't take Julio over Johnson. With that said, Julio is truly insane.

    Bold statement.

    Watching Tony G the last few years gave me an appreciation for what strong hands can do for a receiver even when the player can't get much separation. Calvin's long strides give him the edge in the open field though.

    My maybe-not-so-bold 2011 prediction of a Calvin-Green-Julio-Dez-Nicks Top 5 (any order) by 2014 is looking OK.

    I think they got 'em all right. Rare that I agree with all of the season awards in any sport.

    EDIT: Well, I probably would have voted Lavonte David or Casey Hayward over Luke. So there's that.

    I think its close between Kuechly and David for me. A great year for rookie LB's though. Sadly two of them are in our division

    Carolina and Tampa are putting the pieces together on defense. Both teams beat us with basically just the ground game this season, so can we really afford to send the same group out there expecting a different result? That's why I'm moving towards blowing up the front seven, they need to inject some new (younger) blood in that group.

    Looks like RN nailed it. And a small measure of justice, seeing SF lose after a non-call when their receiver was held.

    I took more pleasure in that than I care to admit.

    Nothing wrong with that. I'm always up for some schadenfreude.

    Also, Flacco played very well (not just today, throughout the playoffs), but I still feel like Anquan Boldin or Jacoby Jones deserved the SB MVP. Two huge plays from Jones, and it looked like Boldin won every 50-50 ball that went up.
