NFL is back!

26 Jul

So as everyone knows the NFL is officially back! Now we can all start getting amped up for the regular season, thinking about our keepers, and trying to figure out who we are going to draft this fantasy season. I don’t think there’s many, if any, people who are happier than myself for football. There’s nothing better than hanging around on sunday watching the NFL Redzone channel and pound buffalo wing, but as crazy as this lock out has been let’s take a second to look how crazier the rest of this off-season will be. Teams will be reporting this week starting tomorrow, with our beloved Patriots being one of those teams, but the teams aren’t close to having there full rosters. Free agency begins at 10am Tuesday but teams can’t sign players until Friday and those players signed can’t report until Aug. 4th, one week before the start of the preseason and 5 weeks before the regular season.

The signing of players will be crazy enough, trying to get new players to learn the playbook or even just getting settled in a new home, but what about trades and holdouts. There are trade talks of Kyle Orton, Kevin Kolb, and Donavan McNabb all being traded. Having a wideout or a linebacker join camp late is one thing, but the most important offensive player is a whole other hurdle. He will have to not only learn the playbook but get the trust of the whole offense will be tough. Along with trades there are holdouts. As of right now Peyton Manning still isn’t signed, even though its reported that he will be the NFLs highest paid player in a few days, and there are reports that if Chris Johnson is not given a new contract he will be holding out. If Johnson does not play, all of us here at PDC will be on rotation for the BigPlays suicide watch.

So let the football talk start, let’s all prepare ourselves for ESPNs Brett Farve watch, the start of the season 6 weeks from Thursday, and, according to Rex Ryan, watch the Jets win the Superbowl, which would be the 3rd straight year I believe. Even though the Jets don’t have a number 1 or 2 WR or a number 2 CB. So are you ready for some football? Because I am!

    Great post. Now that the lockout is over it’s about time we can focus on something else. Free agency is going to be the best and I think I’m most excited to see where Asomugha goes. I don’t think the Jets can tie a whole bunch of money on 2 cornerbacks and Asomugha is also 30 years old so you wonder if giving him a big contract is the best thing you can do for your team. He is definitely the hottest player out there but will he turn out to be the best? I honestly think you would be better off finding someone else for less money but that’s just me. Also, you think you could take a look over at my blog cuz I would really love to hear what you have to say
