Personally, this is a tough time of year for me now that the NFL season is over. I’m not much of a basketball or baseball fan and I’m a hockey fan living in Ohio (which has its challenges). So, I’m really quite deprived of my sports “fix.” I wandered aimlessly through last weekend and was just happy as can be to start my work week so I could again engulf myself in football again!

One of the tasks accomplished this week was a piece for our website that recounts some of the great moments from the 2011 NFL Season. Give it a read and then leave a comment with what you thought was the most historic footnote to the NFL’s history that occurred in 2011.
Calvin Johnson accomplished something that hadn’t been done in the NFL since 1968. Find out by reading our “A Thriller!” story.
