NFL Kickoff Weekend Rosters Broken Down

Before the rest of the league kicks off the second week of the 2010 NFL season today I have one last post chock full of stats to share with you. This comes directly from the NFL and it's they're annual breakdown of every teams kickoff weekend roster by college, age, height, weight, etc.

Pretty interesting stuff. The Saints seem to fall right smack in the middle of most of these categories. Give it a look over and share your own thoughts and analysis. 

Come back later today when we have an open thread for all of the afternoon games then another thread for the Manning Bowl later tonight.
