I don’t know about you, but the NFL offseason is getting old. The draft is done, Deflategate is so two weeks ago and the well is drying up when it comes to topics. So, we’re going with another theme for this week’s edition of Mail-it-in Friday, and that is:
Who is the most likeable person in the NFL?

You’re not alone, Barry. Several people weighed in with their high opinions of J.J. and I can’t really argue with any of them. He seems to take his job seriously and that’s to be commended.
HOWEVER, super serious people can be a drag because they have a hard time cutting loose.
"Hey, Double J, wanna check out that new bar?"
"No, I’ve got 2,000 pushups to bang out this evening."
"OK, want to grab some food with some friends?"

And he’s also not afraid to swear on live television:
I love that so much. I confuse Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates all the time, so I definitely would have got that one wrong. And my natural reaction to a mistake is to mutter curses under my breath.
If I ever get on "Jeopardy!" I would completely forget that I was mic’d up and the entire world would hear me whisper the F word, B word, C word, MF word and so on.
I respect your stance. Andrew Luck must really be nice if non-fans are still giving credit. But he needs to stop growing facial hair. There are people in the world who can pull that look off. Andrew isn’t one of them.
