I'm about as big a football nut as anyone, and I can honestly say I've never even heard of Laron Landry. But yeah, I'm sure he's better than Polamalu...

Landry is a pretty good safety, but please...Can you picture this EVER happening to Polamalu?

Umm... Vick probably won't play QB. I don't know if anyone remembers, but he can't hit the broad side of a barn with his throw. He's an incredible athlete, but a terrible thrower.
