With the 2011 NFL season just around the bend, we look forward, as we always do, to big plays. We're trained that way. We want to see the big touchdown throw, the acrobatic toe-tapping catch on the sideline, the stutter-step around left tackle to break a long run.
Think that has something to do with why the NFL has changed so many rules to favor the offenses?
No matter, we play with the hand we're dealt. It just so happens the rules committee has dealt a stacked deck for offenses. Now, we have the pleasure of watching big plays on a week-to-week basis.
Of course, I could go on and on about how this has helped the NFL in sales of jerseys, even all the way down to the promotion of NFL Red Zone, a channel specifically designed to bring you those big plays.
Instead, I'll just go on and on about the guys who make those big plays. These are the best playmakers for every NFL team.
