Green Bay Packers Disappoint in Week 2
After beating the Bears at home during week 1, things were looking good for the Green Bay Packers. Coming off of a disappointing (yet promising) 6-10 finish in the 2008 football season, the Green Bay Packers have higher hopes in 2009. Aaron Rodgers continues to improve, and is legitimately one of the best quarterbacks in football.Redskins Bounce Back With Win Over Rams
To beat the Rams at home by a score of 9-7 isn’t exactly impressive, but they’ll take it however they can get it. At least the defense seemed to be effective. Then again, it all happened against the Rams, a team that struggled to score throughout 2008 and seems to have the same problem in 2009.New York Giants Impressive in Win at Dallas
The New York Giants became one of 8 NFL teams to start the 2009 season with a 2-0 record after a big win against the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday night. This was a hyped up game in every sense of the word. Between the new stadium in Dallas, the Sunday Night Football status, and the fact that these teams have an enduring rivalry that seems to carry on with each season, this was a game that couldn’t be missed.Philadelphia Eagles Aren’t the Same Without McNabb
Donovan McNabb is the face of the Philadelphia Eagles. The storied veteran is now in his 30s, but he’s nearly as effective as he’s ever been. The team’s week one trouncing of the Carolina Panthers showcased this, as McNabb lit up the field and beat the Panthers by a score of 38-10.Dolphins Face Test Vs Colts
After a horrific 2007 season that saw the team nearly go winless, the Miami Dolphins came back with a tremendous 2008 season that shocked the football world. With Chad Pennington, a quarterback who had been written off and released by his previous team, the Dolphins threw together a winning campaign, won the division, made the playoffs, and shut the New England Patriots out of the post season. Things were looking great in Miami.The Fate of the 2009 New England Patriots
The Patriots entered the 2009 NFL season as the hands-on favorite to win the AFC East. Having played some great football last season in the absence of Tom Brady, a team with Brady as its QB over Matt Cassel would be even better, right? On top of that, some veteran acquisitions like Joey Galloway and Fred Taylor, both great players with storied resumes, would bring the team some additional grit, making the Patriots all the more strong in 2009.Are the NY Jets Really This Good?
After two impressive wins to begin the 2009 season, one has to wonder if the New York Jets are really as good as they might seem. While their win against the Texans could be written off as one that was somewhat expected (despite the fact that they were 5 point underdogs entering the game), no one expected them to beat the New England Patriots. Just about no one.I Can Not Believe They Cut Sutton, Smith, and Brohm!
There are a lot of things that Thompson has done that I have agreed with. For example, he has built the Packers back up to a contending team very quickly after going 4-12 only 3 seasons ago. He has also had a few gem draft picks like Greg Jennings, Nick Collins, and Aaron Rodgers. And I even agree with the way he handled the Brett Favre situation last year.Which LBs Should the Packers Keep?
In this new 3-4 defense that has looked so good in this preseason, the linebackers appear to be more important than ever because they are the ones making all the plays. I have two questions. How many linebackers will the Packers keep? And which ones will the Packers keep?Which RBs Should the Packers Keep?
I am probably behind the curve on this one, but I have not had time to research what they are saying about which running backs they will be able to keep. Obviously, Grant will be the starter. He’s no superstar, but he is definitely a legitimate starting running back in the NFL. And he is unquestionably the best running back on the Green Bay Packers.Aaron Rodgers Looking Really Good!
Aaron Rodgers is looking like he is really ready to be the true leader of the Green Bay Packers this year. In the second half a reporter interview Jason Spitz on the sidelines about Aaron. Based on his responses, it seems that he and the rest of the team are really ready to rally around him. That is the exact chemistry needed to have a big season.
