A quick thought on each team in the NFL, as the lockout hopefully nears a conclusion –
New England Patriots – I’ll go with this picture
Miami Dolphins – You aren’t confident in your quarterback if there are rumors of signing Matt Moore to compete with him.
Buffalo Bills – I think they will improve to around a .500 team this season, with a decent collection of young talent on both sides of the ball.
Pittsburgh Steelers – If only Antonio Brown would have dropped that pass on third down..
Baltimore Ravens – I think Jimmy Smith has a good chance to be Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Cincinnati Bengals – Apparently, Carson Palmer doesn’t want to play for them…in case you haven’t heard. I would guess Andy Dalton starts week one.
Cleveland Browns – There whole season is already cursed by having Peyton Hillis end up on the Madden Cover.
Houston Texans – I have an irrational hate for them because of all the hype they receive every year and how they never live up to it.
Tennessee Titans – Somewhere Kenny Britt was just arrested again…
Indiannapolis Colts – 1 reception for 1 yard by Reggie Wayne in the playoffs against the Jets last year.
Jacksonville Jaguars – I wonder if the Blaine Gabbert era will start by week two when they play the Jets?
Oakland Raiders – The division is wide open this year, so maybe they finally get over the hump.
Kansas City Chiefs – There is no way I see them back in the playoffs this year.
San Diego Chargers – If they can stay healthy, they will be handful as usual…looking forward to LaDainian Tomlinson getting a shot at them.
Denver Broncos – You have to start Tebow, right?
Philadelphia Eagles – It sounds like they are going to do some major damage in free agency.
New York Giants – Whoops…
Dallas Cowboys – Can’t wait to see Rex Ryan blitz the hell out of Tony Romo in week one.
Washington Redskins – How much did they pay Albert Haynesworth again?
Green Bay Packers – They have enough young talent to have a great shot at defending the belt.
Chicago Bears – How the hell did this team make it to the NFC Championship Game?
Detriot Lions – For once, they seem to be moving in the right direction.
Minnesota Vikings – Still can’t believe how high they selected Christian Ponder.
Atlanta Falcons – I am not sure if they have a draft pick for another five years…let’s see if Julio Jones is worth it.
Carolina Panthers – Can you blame Steve Smith for wanting to leave town?
New Orleans Saints – Marshawn Lynch is still breaking tackles…
Tampa Bay Bucs – Raheem Morris is the man
San Francisco 49ers – I am going to miss Mike Singletary press conferences.
Seattle Seahawks – Sounds like they aren’t going to bring Matt Hasselbeck back…not sure why.
St. Louis Rams – Ask Will…
Arizona Cardinals – Can we find somebody to throw Larry Fitzgerald the ball?
New York Jets – Look up, down, left and right.
