    Wow. Are there any plans to make a football edition of Prizm? Especially since the basketball version is getting such high remarks?

    Goin with Luck. Game winning drive for his team and a 12 pt comeback in the 4th. I can’t tell if this team is for real or not..but just gotta go with a winner. Though any of these guys can win.

    Bryce Brown-a bright spot in this otherwise wretched Eagles season!

    Josh Gordon all the way. Leading rookies in receiving yards and is #3 in yards per catch behind Vincent Jackson and Cecil Shorts. Show someone other than RG III and Andrew Luck love. They have done a lot, but this week either Gordon or Brown need to shine. Also, can’t wait for those Josh Gordon rookie autos coming out soon in 2012 Absolute! Looks to be the best release this year!

    Hey Tracy –

    Are there plans to include Jerrell Freeman (Colts LB) in any upcoming releases? He is 7th in the NFL in tackles for the year. I know he came from the CFL so would he qualify as a rookie? Thanks.

      Talked to Aik Tongtharadol, our NFL Brand Manager. Jerrell actually was drafted in 2008, so he would not be a rookie. But he may just find his way into a Panini America trading card set in the future. Stay tuned . . .

    I love Luck, but I gotta give it to Wilson, because he did it against the Bears, and on the road
