Moss Is Boss...

...in the NFL merchandize game. I said that this trade would do for jersey sales what the L.A. Kings/Chicago White Sox hats did in the late 80s/early 90s. I'm still shocked "Game" hasn't sported a Moss jersey in one of his videos.
As usual, several first-round draft choices were among the top 25, led by Tampa Bay running back Carnell Williams, who was eighth. Alex Smith, the first pick in the draft by San Francisco, was 12th; Cleveland's Braylon Edwards was 13th; Miami's Ronnie Brown was 15th and Chicago's Cedric Benson was 23rd.

At the same time last year, the New York Giants' jersey of Eli Manning — the first pick in the 2004 draft — was seventh, even though he hadn't taken a snap in the NFL. His brother Peyton, the league's co-MVP for 2003, was 20th. Neither Manning is in the top 25 this year.


No one's surprised about the last sentence and as expected Michael Vick is the second-best jersey sale.
