The start of a new season is also bringing out old rivalries between teams. One rivalry is quite clear to most people is that everyone wants to take down the Steelers because they won the super bowl last year. If you defeat the champions you will likely get praised in your victory and shunned by the fans of the opposing team. Anyway, its just another rivalry that will hopefully bring out the best in each player so to have a successfulseason. It is also time for Tom Brady to finally take his revenge on the Giants for taking from them a perfect record. It also is time for him to get his revenge from his knee. His knee stopped him from playing last year and will possibly effect his preseason. If he gets another hit to that knee its over. Anyways, you also remember how the Dolphins did two years ago they barley managed to get one win. Well this year will possibly be the most exciting year among all else because of the rivalry between the teams creating pressure for one team to out shine all others.
