If you noticed I was gone, I'm back

Posted by ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky

For those of you who didn’t notice I was gone, please skip this post. Rather than have my feelings hurt, I took it as a compliment about my ownership of this page. I couldn’t help but see some of your comments on my Facebook status reports generated by posts others did in my absence and some reaction to my Twitter feed.

For those of you who did notice, I appreciate your understanding as I hit pause to get a new family member settled in at Chez Kuharsky.

A quick thanks to bosses John Banks and Sheldon Spencer for allowing me to save and use vacation in-season, to Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. who spent 10 days doing a lot more monitoring of the AFC South than usual and to the team of blog editors -- Matt Lee, Jon Hudec, Brett Longdin, Emily Schaible and Steve Fox -- who also did extra work on my behalf.

I don’t expect I will be able to catch up on my mailbag, so please hit me with fresh stuff starting now and we will go from there.

OK, we dive right back in. Here comes a “Reading the Coverage” installment.
