NFL chat in progress, AFC East at 3:30 p.m.

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

The folks over at SportsNation know how to fill out a starting lineup.

We're conducting a ginormous block of NFL chat Thursday, and if the batting order was for a slow-pitch softball team, I'd be the guy you have to insert just because he showed up and it would be awkward if you made him watch the whole game.

That's right. I'm batting 10th. Stick me behind the plate or stash me in right-center field.

The chat began at 11 a.m., but I'm not scheduled to dig in for AFC East chat until 3:30 p.m.

Drop by and heckle me while I swing and miss. Repeatedly.

Also, don't forget to visit my weekly AFC East chat Friday at 3 p.m.
