Winner “Rex” is great! It’s like a dinosaur!
Meh. It’s fine.
Rex has your standard $12 haircut that you can set your watch to. how boring.
Winner Rob has long flowing hair, much like a proud lion.
Is He A Loudmouth?
I’m a Pats fan, but even without that qualifier...yes.
Winner It seems that Rob has been better about keeping mum this season. Animated, yes. But there seem to be fewer quotes floating around.
Publicly Known Fetish?
Ew. Yes. Gross. Ugh.
Winner Mercifully not.
More Likeable Team?
Winner Again, Pats fan here. I can’t vote for Rex. Never ever ever.
Winner But...as much as I legitimately like Drew Brees, and the city of New Orleans, and the nice story of the Saints' success post-Katrina...there’s still the whole Bountygate thing.
Better Fan Interactions?
If there are any, I haven’t heard of ‘em
Winner Rob’s been spotting partying with Nola Locals at least twice this season. He’s in full on Bill Murray mode.

    Colin Kaepernick is under extreme pressure to produce at a high level. That has not been happening, and the 49ers are in danger of seeing their season fall apart.

    Peyton Manning appears to have come to terms with the deficiencies in his game at this point. He can no longer whistle the ball downfield at the last minute, and some medium-range passes are difficult as well.
