Dick Stockton needs to pick up his game for the awards that bear his name! This week, Dick was shut out in the Straight Outta Stockton awards as nine out of our top ten go to NFL analysts. Jon Gruden, Rich Gannon, and Troy Aikman take the top three slots for Week 7 while Phil Simms and Brian Billick squirt to the top of the Dickies standings. This Simms/Billick battle may be the AA equivalent of Manning/Brady. Should be fun to watch throughout the rest of the season. The envelope please…
