Training camp is now underway, and as players get back into steady action, here are a few players to keep an eye on for the upcoming season. Tom Brady missed almost all of last year with a torn ACL suffered in the first game of the season.Michael Vick – Media Victim
Sure, Michael Vick’s dog fighting wasn’t quite moral, humane, or even the least bit charming. But Vick’s case was handled unjustly due to the media backlash and public backing. Vick received two years in jail for orchestrating a dog fighting league. Donte Stallworth served 24 days in jail for a DUI manslaughter. In case you didn’t catch the wording, a “manslaughter” incorporates the murder of a human being. Judging by the amount of media and public outcry towards each case, Americans seem to value the lives of vicious pit bulls over the lives of innocent men walking home from work early in the morning.Martellus Bennett – Lookout For This Rising Star
Martellus Bennett, 2nd round pick from Texas A&M, catches balls from Tony Romo behind All-Pro tight end Jason Witten.

When most high school football players begin making contact with college, one of the first things they do is to go online and fill out a football recruiting questionnaire.

The 2009 NFL season will see no less than 11 teams total taking the field with new skippers manning the helm (6 AFC and 5 NFC), however, inside that number a deeper look-see reveals that a total of 7 NFL teams will begin the new season with a completely new staff with regard to changes made at not only the head coaching position but also at the offensive and defensive coordinator positions as well. Interestingly enough 4 of the 11 new skippers heading teams this season were either in “interim” positions with the same team or were with the same team the prior season and designated as a heir apparent to the job (Jim Caldwell of the Colts, Tom Cable of the Raiders, Mike Singletary of the Niners, and Jim Mora Jr. of the Seahawks).Football Season is Upon Us – Is Your Tailgate Party Going to Be Good Enough?

They started off great and everyone was happy again. However, they faltered down the stretch and missed the playoffs. He left them without a legitimate quarterback and they brought in Rex Ryan as the new head coach as well.
