A few NFL Notes
By Randy Maltz – Founder/Editor at Silver and Blue Report & Hook’em Report
Hopefully, the Dallas Cowboys will have a successful season this year. Here are a few notes …
* The Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place as scheduled Saturday Aug. 6 even if the NFL’s labor lockout remains in place. Deion Sanders will be among the enshrinees in the Class of 2011.
* Entering the 2011 season, seven of the 10 most efficient passers of all-time are active. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers reached the necessary 1,500 career passes in 2010 to qualify and now sits atop the list as the most efficient quarterback of all-time with a 98.41 rating. Philip Rivers (Chargers) is No. 2; Tony Romo (Cowboys) is No. 4; Tom Brady (Patriots) is No. 5; Peyton Manning (Colts) is No. 6, Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers) is No. 8; and Drew Brees (Saints) is No. 10. Only Rivers and Romo of the seven do not own Super Bowl rings.
