I was a bit curious about the number of Pitt players that will be in the NFL Playoffs this year. This is the product of A: Too much time on my hands, B. Needing something to do during the basketball game, and C: Sick of the Mike Haywood stuff.
Anyway, here's the rundown. Quick, can you name the seven Panthers in the playoffs (without looking it up)?
In all, there are seven former players suiting up on six of the twelve teams in the NFL postseason. Pretty cool that half of them are playing really key roles as well.
New York Jets - cornerback Darrelle Revis
Indianapolis Colts - linebacker Clint Session
Baltimore Ravens - quarterback Joe Flacco (Shut up, I'm claiming him)
Kansas City Chiefs - quarterback Tyler Palko
Seattle Seahawks - cornerback Kennard Cox
Philadelphia Eagles - running back Lesean McCoy, guard Mike McGlynn
If the 49ers weren't so awful, they could have added four more to this list (tight end Nate Byham, punter Andy Lee, linebacker Scott McKillop, and CB Shawntae Spencer).
So now the question is, who's got the best shot at getting a ring?
