53 men and a Bjork
I realize there are legitimate questions and concerns about the current roster. Two qb's? Just two Tight Ends? We had 9 of 'em last year and now we have two? I can't say I'm upset with the decision or anything, just thought I'd mention it.
What I am happy about though is that with the possible exception of that wideout named Craphanso I think we have the most awesomely named player in the NFL (sort of) this year. Carl-Johan Bjork.
In order to qualify for such an award it helps to have two first names, especially if they're hyphenated. It also helps that his last name is shared with a borderline batshit crazy musician from Iceland. I expect, nay demand, that if Carl somehow makes his way onto the active roster this year and somehow makes a tackle (most likely special teams) that the PA announcer plays "Army of Me". Also, to a lesser extent, if Mr. Bjork somehow whiffs on a game-saving tackle and contributes to a losing cause I sorta want to hear "It's Oh So Quiet". But we can negotiate that later, I'm just spitballin' here.
