NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt is usually focused on personnel, but his Tuesday chat this week for some reason ended up focusing on predictions for 2011 division winners – and some of the picks may be surprising.

Let’s get this straight: Tuesday is Joe Namath’s birthday. … The Hall of Famer is 68 years old. … Coincidentally, ’68 was the year Namath led the Jets to the Super Bowl… Sounds like an obvious time to pay tribute to the man by looking back on his career courtesy of Spike Lee’s commentary from last year’s Top 100 series.

Hope you all enjoyed a fun and safe Memorial Day. Did you spend it at a barbecue with friends and family? You probably were saying to yourself, “I wonder what New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman is doing on Memorial Day?” Well, funny you asked.

Jim Tressel likely has no future now in college. He might at a much lower level, but not in the big conferences. As for the NFL, I think there’s a tremendous difference between the two levels. You look at all the highly successful college coaches and not many of them seem to translate that to the NFL.

When asked about which veteran receiver among Plaxico Burress, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco (who could very well stick with the Bengals) has the most to offer during his weekly live chat, NFL.com’s Vic Carucci made a somewhat surprising pick.
