The NFL Rewind is back at Bangthebook.com, your source for everything during the football betting season! Every week the NFL Rewind will cover the week in the NFL. From the great performances to the best players and the latest storylines the NFL Rewind will cover the games and the things to take not of.
Even though it was just preseason Monday Night Football did not disappoint. In a tie ballgame with just seconds left the Panthers decided to try and get something done to score but instead turned over the ball and the Giants scored to win the game with less than ten seconds to go. The Giants showed that they may just be the deepest defensive front in the entire league.
In other news the rookie corps of quarterbacks showed that they are worthy of the early draft picks. Matthew Stafford and Mark Sanchez both looked great in their openers. Stafford had an interception but besides that looked fine in his debut and the Lions even won a game. Don’t get excited yet Lions fans they were undefeated in the preseason last year. The good news is as of now Stafford looks like the right choice. The Jets announced that Sanchez will start the second game in the preseason
During the first week of the preseason there was a sigh of relief in New England. The Patriots did the unthinkable and played all pro quarterback Tom Brady for the entire first half of the game. He managed throw one interception which basically was a jump ball he threw to Randy Moss, but besides that Brady was on point. He completed 10 of 15 and looked like he recovered just fine from his injury.
In other games quarterbacks that changed places had some trouble. Matt Cassell struggled in his first game with Kansas City playing sloppy in against the Texans. The Bears saw the same thing out of Jay Cutler. It may have been worse for Cutler since he took it out against his wide receiver in the media. He called Hester out for not fighting for an interception but it is reported that the sides have made up. This is a long season so no one is convinced either of these quarterbacks will have a problem but it has to make fans take notice.
In league news Michael Vick was signed by the Eagles and the fans were outraged, but something tells me since Donovan Mcnabb has welcomed him to the fold that attitude will change, if he plays. Finally it was announced yesterday that Brett Favre may still play for the Minnesota Vikings, what a great week for the rewind!
