The exclamation marks forced me to post this

    Aside from limited action in two preseason games, Posluszny will be playing his first NFL game in almost a year on Sept. 7 when the Seattle Seahawks visit Orchard Park to open the season, but so far, he has not missed a beat. The linebacker has recorded seven total tackles in the two exhibition games (UPDATE WITH STATS FROM INDIANAPOLIS GAME!!!!!!!!).

    Was it really necessary to post that? C'mon.

    My guess is someone put that in there as a reminder for someone and it was never edited out.

    So he forgot to go back and add in the numbers from Indy, the third preseason game.

    Yeah, that's the first time something like that's ever made it to print, I bet. And now, I'm making a mental note not to leave myself notes in my copy, lest the same thing happen to me ...
  5. Yo. It is funny because of the CAPITAL LETTERS and the !!!!!!!!!!. Which say, "MAKE SURE - MAKE SURE!!! - TO DO THIS. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT." If it were "note: add stats from indy game," or something, I would not have laughed.
  6. (No making me feel like a bad human being for laughing at accidentally printed capital letters and exclamation marks. Not allowed at all.)

    I got as far as "Chomping at the bit"

    The proper phrase is "Champing at the bit"

    Looks like they weren't thinking about the web ... I bet the writer or desker added the info once it was flowed for layout but either 1) forgot to fix it in the system or 2) forgot that what's in the system goes on the website verbatim. That's how our copyflow system works. Any notes or TKTKTKT or holes or whatever will go live on the site.
