The National Football League is officially underway for the 2009-10 season. The Hall of Fame game last Sunday kicked off the pre-season action, with the Tennessee Titans winning 21-18 over T.O. and the Buffalo Bills.
The defending champion Pittsburgh Steelers will look for another title, which would likely cement them as team of the decade, or will the New England Patriots take the honor home? Does Spygate play a factor?
Jobs are up for grabs, and filling in those final roster spots will not be easy. It could be the final roster spots that could bring out a future star.
Injuries are imminent, and only time tells who is hurt, and what teams could kiss their season good bye before it actually starts the second week of September.
Panthers WR Steve Smith is out for two weeks
after injuring his shoulder in practice. Thomas Davis, LB for Carolina, is still sidelined with a sprained ankle and DT Maake Kemoeatu is done for the season with a torn Achilles.
The Eagles are banged up already with DeSean Jackson and backup QB Kevin Kolb being sidelined. Antonio Bryant tore his meniscus and will be out a month for Tampa and is one of three offensive weapons being sidelined in the early stages of camp.
Everybody is happy the season is back! What high-power team will bust this season, but what is more intriguing is which team no one is even giving a second thought to, could make a run this post-season and the Lombardi Trophy?
If I had to guess, I would pick the Houston Texans from the AFC and the Chicago Bears from the NFC.
For all I know, both could lose every game. We did have a team do that (Detroit) last season.
So now, I have but one question. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!!
