Last week I used personal discretion in choosing the Pammies, but I think we should let the readers vote. Here are the Top 20 comments from the chronicles. If you think we overlooked one or six, then voice your opinion in the comments. If those comments then receive a few votes up, then maybe we’ll reconsider based on the final votes. Poll ends on Tuesday at 1 p.m. EST, so I can get it up that afternoon and start working on the Week 3 announcing schedule.
1. “He’s got the pants so far.” — Craig James after Jesse Palmer says “somebody wants to be player of the game.” (I forget who this referenced.)
2. “Edwards again got behind the secondary and howls it in.” — Beth Mowins after Edwards jumped, while in front of the secondary, and caught a deep pass. I think she was trying to say “hauls it in,” but it sounded an awfully lot like “howls.”
3. “And it’s True” — Rob Stone on made FG
