Editor's Note: We've really enjoyed your summer FanPost series, doctork44. Thanks for all of your hard work! - BG
Hey folks: today's Joe! will be the last post from me for quite awhile. Since training camp is starting in a few days, I'm going to move to the side and let the real journalists and bloggers do their thing. The whole point of the Morning Joe! series was to contribute to the site by giving people something interesting to read and discuss during the "dog days" of the NFL offseason. Now that we finally have football to talk about; I'm sure Brian, Matt and the others guys are going to be kicking it in to high gear, so my job is pretty much done. I'll still be around, lurking and commenting on different posts, so I'll see you guys around.
