    Sorry if this has already been posted, but I was just rewatching the Falcons game and noticed what a good run blocker Dave Thomas is. He made a large number of real good blocks - including probably THE main block on the Cobbs TD. He did have some problems with his pass blocking, but I have to believe that's something he never had to do in college, being a primary receiver. So he'll improve at that. His run blocking is already better than Faurier's and I believe he's got more speed. This team is just looking amazing at the TE position. And if the TEs, OL and RBs stay relatively healthy, the Pats could be one of the top 3-4 teams in rushing offense this year.

    Yes, a 2-TE set with Graham and Thomas would be great for the running game. I suspect that pioli has drafted Graham's replacement.

    Don't forget the chili, for a generic chain product it's pretty good.

    That was the extra chewy variety, they've had to discontinue it due to law suits over denture damage.

    NEM, your knowledge of fast food appears to be more impressive than your knowledge of football.

    In & Out Burger is the best fast food burger joint ever !! You have to be out west to get them though. Their Fries are made right in full view, Fresh potato goes right in the cutter, then right into the vegetable oil. To me, and I'm a fast food expert, McDonald's still has the best tasting fries (of course everyone has their own opinions), followed VERY closely by In & Out. When it comes to burgers, In & Out is the burger king, pardon the pun. I'm gonna miss In & Out. Wendy's does have great burgers and fries also, as well as very tasty fingerless chili.

    Yeah, they have an impressive dollar menu (Wendy's). The baked potato for a buck is an amzing deal, those potatos are huge. Though ordering a baked potato from a fast food joint isn't very manly, lol.
