The 2009 NFL season kicks off tonight with a match up between the Pittsburgh Steelers (2008 Super Bowl Champs) and the Tennessee Titans (best record for 2008). This game has all the makings of a classic, and if you are interested in football for football’s sake, it is a game not to miss. More »
The NFC East is a tough place. Its home to four of the best teams in the NFL, period. In all honesty, it’s almost not fair, just how good the East is. Any given season the division can produce at least two or three playoff teams making it by far the best division in football. Every year the tables turn exchanging division title wins and there is never a clear cut decision on who will secure the title. Opportunities for a successful season for each team begins at the start of every season and I love it. The competition is fierce and the players are brought in to suit the style of play and toughness needed to thrive. More »
Just How Far Can the Cowboys Go in 2009
Over the past few days I have been pouring through hours of analysis on the NFC and how each competitive team matching up against Dallas in making the highly anticipated playoff run.
My initial prediction was that if the Cowboys don’t win the division, they’d have a strong shot at securing a Wild Card spot. The original idea was met with some hesitation, but if they finish with either a 9-7 record, which I believe they will, it could happen and here’s how. More »
No player wants to become part of the 53 man roster cut list, but at least seven of the 53 players axed were able to find a home on the Titans practice squad, including third year WR Paul Williams, who has shown flashes of potential to become an NFL elitist throughout his young career. More »
Kerry Collins vs. James Harrison and Lamar Woodley
Do you remember playing Madden when Kerry Collins was the slowest human being alive and worse yet anytime he got hit he fumbled? It was a beautiful disaster that was fun to watch for everyone who didn’t have Kerry Collins on their team. Last year he played his best football since his Superbowl run with the Giants. He, however, is a front runner. If he has the lead, and can hand the ball off and occasionally throw the long ball, he looks great. Down by 14, without a running game, betting on him is like going all in on pocket twos. You might get lucky every now and then but expect to go home with a loss. If the Steelers put the Titans in obvious passing situations frequently, both outside linebackers will have huge days. More »
We’re only five days away from the season opener for the Dallas Cowboys in Tampa Bay. So, I thought I’d provide you with a nice little video discussing the running back trio that is sure to cause teams lots and lots of trouble this season.
Marion Barber, Felix Jones, and Tashard Choice? I like that combination. Opposing defenses better be ready.
Heading into the preseason and extending throughout the last game, where the Tennessee Titans hosted the Green Bay Packers at LP Field, the target of speculation was the offense. Could Kerry Collins prove once again that he was the savvy veteran worthy of the two year, 15 million dollar contract he was awarded in February after leading the Titans to an NFL best 13-3 record? Would Vince Young show he had the ability to bounce back after the 2008 season turned into a self induced nightmare? Would the death of former Titans franchise quarterback, and Young’s mentor, Steve McNair cause VY to regress emotionally? Will the self-proclaimed “Smash and Dash” be able to churn out a repeat performance of the previous year? How about the Titans off season acquisitions at wide out? Do the quarterbacks finally have the weapons they’ve been asking for since McNair’s departure? More »
There are a lot of new faces on the 2009 Eagles roster, but I’m highlighting two in particular: Omar Gaither and Macho Harris. Now that the position battles are over and the depth chart is set, we can analyze (and overanalyze) what’s going to happen before it happens. Middle linebacker and free safety are two positions that can help or hurt this defense tremendously. Having two new starters (or an old-new starter in Gaither’s case) makes me uneasy to say the least. More »
