Football Fans Laying it on the Line – The Honor and Glory of Wearing Your Colors in Enemy Territory
Granted, there’s a great feeling of camaraderie when football fans rooting for the same team wear their Kumbaya matching jerseys. But, ah! The exhilaration – and sheer danger – of wearing enemy colors!Washington Redskins Fans Should Worry
The Washington Redskins suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of the Detroit Lions in week 3 — it might not have been the worst loss in franchise history, but it’s right up there. There is no excuse in losing to the Lions really, the Washington Redskins have by far the more talented team — the most talented teams don’t always win — sometimes the team more prepared wins. Anymore defeats by inadequate teams and the Redskins fans, front office, and head coach Jim Zorn will see their Redskins be in last place in the NFC East.Are the St Louis Rams the Worst NFL Team?
The “greatest show on turf” of the St. Louis Rams achieved earlier in the decade has long been gone as of 2009. The Rams franchise has fallen off the map badly since the glory days of Kurt Warner and Marshall Faulk.Saints Are NFC’s Best Through Week 4
The New Orleans Saints started out the season with all guns blazing. They have the potential to have the greatest offense the league has seen in the last 30 years which includes the 2007 New England Patriots team that set many NFL scoring records. Drew Brees is playing like a MVP candidate and completing nearly 70% of his pass attempts, which is well above average.Detroit Lions Play Improved Football in 2009
Many people thought it couldn’t be done — that is the dreaded 0-16 record the Lions suffered in 08′. Accumulating an 0-16 record was less likely than going 16-0, which the New England Patriots accomplished in 07′ just a year prior. The Detroit Lions from 99′ — 08′ compiled an astonishing record of 48-112.Chicago Bears Defense Resilient in 2009
The Chicago Bears 09′ season is one filled with optimism. The Denver Broncos did the Bears a favor by creating trade talk with Jay Cutler, the Bears knew if they wanted to reach and win the Super Bowl they needed more then a game manager quarterback. The Bears had decades of mediocre quarterbacks from Kyle Orton, Rex Grossman, Chad Hutchinson, Craig Krenzel, Jonathan Quinn, Chris Chandler, Jim Miller, Cade McNown, Shane Mathews, Rick Mirer and Steve Stenstrom – that was just in the last decade.Philadelphia Eagles Could Win NFC in 2009
Hopes are high for the 09′ Eagles. With the acquisition of Michael Vick, the Eagles fans should expect some wild cat offense perhaps – if Vick doesn’t amount to much then he wasn’t worth the headache. Vick could be a distraction and not worth the trouble.Chicago Bears Look Strong in 09
Chicago Bears have very high expectations for 09′ with the acquisition of Jay Cutler from the Denver Broncos. Jay Cutler had a terrible first game as starting quarter back for the Bears, and many believed that if this continued the Bears would be no better then an 8-8 team. Jay Cutler is the first pro Bowl quarterback for the Bears in many ages – while the bears base their team on defense and running the ball, that mentality won’t get them a Super Bowl ring only.Detroit Lions Show Steady Improvement in 2009 NFL Season
The Detroit Lions have no expectation for the 09′ season really — just don’t go 0-16 and that will be good enough it seems. The Lions already improved in 09′ winning in week 3 against the Washington Redskins 14-19 — the teams first win since 07′ against the Kansas City Chiefs in week 16. The Lions celebrated their first victory in years by high five-ing the fans in the crowd.Can Green Bay Packers Make the Playoffs in 2009?
With a disappointing season in 08′, 6-10, behind the Green Bay Packers, the team looks to be a contender in the NFC North Division. Aaron Rogers looks to establish himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Rogers is following in the footsteps of a football legend, Brett Favre, this will not be easy.Tampa Bay Buccaneers Can’t Win a Game
Fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to the 09′ season with not much hope for anything good to happen. The Bucs rank among the worst in defense and offense and the future looks bleak. The Bucs had potentially a few Hall of Fame players on their team 7 years ago, now they are just looking to avoid a 3 win season.
