This has to give the Jets heartburn Dan Leberfeld

The finalists for Prilosec Award, given to the NFL’s top offensive line, are the Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots.

The winner will be announced by John Madden on Thursday.

It’s a miscarriage of justice that the Jets’ offensive line isn’t a finalist.

The Jets’ line had an excellent season, and are absolutely better than the Giants and New England.

As for the other three, it’s hard for me to say because I didn’t see them much.

Perhaps the Giants’ line got the nod over the Jets because their left tackle David Diehl has an acid reflux problem.

“David Diehl and Anthony Herrera (Minnesota Vikings’ guard) are living proof that heartburn can happen to even the toughest people,” said Phil McWaters, Prilosec OTC brand manager. “These players will help people understand that frequent heartburn doesn’t have to get in the way of their daily activities and that Prilosec OTC can them help manage and protect against it.”

Maybe as a protest for being overlooked, the Jets’ offensive linemen should use Pepcid when they get heartburn.
