Marker Losman debut solid [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"This was special, as far as my first time goes, playing against my favorite player ever in Brett Favre," Losman said. "I had the jitters just watching him.

WGRZ-TV reports: 'Let’s not forget either, Jim has one heck of a teammate in wife Jill, who has proven to any doubters she is far deeper than the stereotypical beautiful blonde some might associate with an NFL star. Without ever meaning for it to happen, Jill became an articulate and passionate media star in her own right, often making personal appearances Jim couldn’t make without their message missing a beat.'

Marker Hunter Kelly Was 'So Tough' [4:57 AM] reports: '"He's taking it pretty tough, that's his little buddy. It's just not natural for a parent to outlive their children. Obviously this is a tough day for him."'

That was important because it was about as close to a game simulation as you can have."'
