Finally, someone has topped Craig James in a weekly Pammy poll! We all owe the genius of Matt Millen a debt of gratitude. He picks up some major ground this week and moves into second place with the #1 and #4 quotes this week. Almost as brilliant as the drafting of Charles Rogers and Mike Williams. There's still time left for Millen to make a St. Louis Cardinalsesque run to the Pammy championship as we hit November. (Note: On appeal the Pammy committee removed Verne's "this year's Game of the Century" remark from the nominees due to its ironic quality. Well played, Mr. Lundquist, our apologies.
