Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford wait one more year (from Alex)

I think that QB Sam Bradford should wait for one more year to go into the NFL. Why? Because there is Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy coming into the NFL (at the end of this year) and there aren't that many teams that need QB's yet. I think that he may not have that good of a season this year because he lost both starting WR's and two linemen. Now if they had a good draft class than he will probably have a good season.

Reid Signing Vick a good or bad Idea? (From Alex)

Signing Vick a good or bad Idea? I think both. A good idea because Vick is a 8 year pro and McNabb is a 11 year Pro so as soon as McNabb Retires they will have Vick as there QB instead of having to draft one that you don't know will be good. Bad because McNabb feels the pressure that if he doesn't do good then he will be replaced. So then he will be so pressured about it that he will play bad.

The Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins had an amazing comeback season last year but their division is quite strong this year and I personally think that they won't be beating New England this year.
Chad Penninton is doing good, but a they don't have that much real talent on the team. The Wildcat can help them but now that teams have seen it, they will have plays prepared to stop it.
Ronnie Brown looked great as well last season but his line isn't really that impressive. They got Vontae Davis in the first round, so that will help their "D" backs but still I don't think they will be going far this season.
I think the Dolphins will win 6-8 game. I also think they will be fighting with the Bills for third place in the AFC East.


I just wanted to write a post about diffrent things happening or that I think will happen this year.

My first subject is the Chicago Bears. Getting Cutler might just be the ticket to get them to the Super Bowl. Also Matt Forte made the record of most rushing yards for a rookie runningback. Their defense is one of the best out there and with the "D" healthy this year they will return to being a defensive force in the NFC as well as an Offensive force now that Cutler is on the team. I watched their preseason game against the Giants and their offense did extremly well and their defense shutdown Eli. I am predicting that the Bears will have a great season this year and that the NFC championship might very well be Eagles vs. Bears.

Also I wanted to give my prediction of who I think will be the dominating teams in the NFC.

I think if they can pull themselves together in the playoff, the Eagles could go to the Super Bowl.

Also I think the Falcons will do good this year with the upgrade of former Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Tony Gonzalez.

I also think as I said earlier in this post that the Bear will do well this year.

The Packers are rebounding and Aaron Rogers is looking better then ever.

The Vikings look good as well if they can keep their QB problem under control.

Also I am going to put down who I think will win each divsion in the NFC and who will get the wildcard spots

NFC North: Chicago Bears

NFC South: Atlanta Falcons

NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles

NFC West: Arizona Cardinals

NFC Wildcard #1: Dallas Cowboys, Minnasota Vikings, Washington Redskins

NFC Wildcard #2 : New York Giants, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers

Note: Dallas always seems to have some kind of player problem, that's why I don't have them winning their division

Note: Philadelphia: although I think they can go 14-2 they do have a hard divsion but if they do come out stong I think they can top the NFC

And here is just a guess of how many wins these 9 teams will have.

Chicago Bears 13-3

Dallas Cowboys 12-4

Philadelphia Eagles 12-4

New York Giants 11-5

Green Bay Packers 10-6

Atlanta Falcons 10-6

Carolina Panthers 10-6

Minnisota Vikings 10-6 (if Farve dosn't start)

Washington Redskins 10-6

Arizona Cardinals 10-6

Now as I said these are only quick guesses so I will soon try to give you a full prediction of team records this year after I finish researching all the teams.

My Predicted AFC Championship Showdown (from Alex)

This years AFC Championship will (I think) be fought over by the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The New England Patriots Offense features Superstar Tom Brady who just returned from a knee injury that kept him from playing the entire season. He has a spectacular line, a pretty good HB, good TEs and three of the best WRs. The Patriots Only problem will be that Brady missed all but 1 game of the season so he might not be at his best.

The New England Patriots Defense features probably the best defensive line with Derrick Burgess, Richard Seymour, Ty Warren and Vince Wilfork. They also have LBs Jerod Mayo, Teddy Bruschi and Adalius Thomas. At CB they have Leigh Bodden, Terence Wheatley, Darius Butler. There Safety's are Patrick Chung, Brandon Meriweather and James Sanders.

The Pittsburgh Steelers Offense features Ben Roethlisberger who had a pretty good season last year and the years before. The Offensive Line is a solid group but not as good as the Patriots. They have TE Heath Miller who is one of the best at his position. They have WR Hines Ward, Santonio Holmes and the 1 year pro Limas Sweed. They have HB Willie Parker who is good.
The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense features a good solid D-line and they
added to it by drafted DT Evander Hood (from Mizzou). At LB they have James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons and James Farrior. At CB they have Ike Taylor and Deshea Townsend. At Safety they have the best SS in the League Troy Palamolu.
I think that it the Patriots have a better chance of winning because there O-Line is better and there D-Line is Better. Also there WRs are better.

Darrius Heyward-bey? (From Alex)

Why did the Oakland Raiders Head Coach Tom Cable draft WR Darrius Heyward-bey? They Could have got Jeremy Maclin who is almost as fast and a pretty good catcher. They could have got Percy Harvin, Kenny Britt, Brian Robiskie, Mohamed Massaquoi or Hakeem Nicks. The worst part of it is that they need a possession receiver not a speedster. I guess that we will find out if he was a good idea or not when the season starts.

The Big-12 Top Ten Senior Prospects

This is an article I found and wanted to put it on here.
Top 10 Senior Prospects: Big 12

The Big 12 and SEC have battled to be considered the country's premier college football conference the past several years. Examining the former's top senior talent makes it easy to understand why the latter's grip on NCAA supremacy has loosened just a bit.
Three or four players from the Big 12 are typically drafted in the first round, but as many as seven of the players listed below could fit the bill this year.
Add in Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy -- both juniors -- and young Oklahoma State star wide receiver Dez Bryant, and this year's top 32 could have a very strong Big 12 flavor.
And if any of these players fall into the late second or early third round next spring, they should still compete for starting positions in the NFL sooner than later.
A closer look at the top 10 Big 12 seniors eligible for the 2010 NFL Draft:

10. Jordan Shipley, WR, Texas, 6-0, 190, 4.47 40-yard dash: Shipley will not be considered the biggest, fastest or strongest receiver in this year's class. However, his ability to get open for roommate QB Colt McCoy and turn short patterns into long gains using underrated quickness will intrigue scouts. The sixth-year Longhorn should have a long NFL career, much like reliable slot man Brandon Stokley.

9. Darrell Stuckey, SS, Kansas, 5-11, 205, 4.50: What Stuckey lacks in height, he more than makes up for in determination and athleticism. Physical enough to handle playing in the box (98 tackles) and quick enough to makes plays against the pass (five INTs last season) or track down running backs in the open field, the 2008 first-team All-Big 12 pick could be the second safety off the draft board after Southern California star Taylor Mays.

8. Perrish Cox, CB, Oklahoma State, 6-0, 195, 4.44: This Cowboy brings everything a team wants in a starting cornerback: good size, strength and excellent speed. Cox's return skills (2,155 career kickoff return yards, four returned for TDs; 496 punt return yards, one for TD) will contribute not only to special teams, but also give him the chance to change field position on interceptions. The honorable mention All-Big 12 pick has also proven his ball-hawking skills by making six picks and breaking up 21 passes in three seasons.

7. Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri, 6-1, 245, 4.59: An exceedingly confident and reliable open-field tackler, Weatherspoon has accumulated more than 280 stops over the past two seasons. Some NFL scouts will see a bit of Derrick Brooks in this All-American, but others are concerned that he runs around too many blocks instead of taking them on. However, it's hard to ignore that No. 12 is always around the ball whether between the tackles, behind the line or outside the hashes.

6. Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas, 6-4, 239, 4.66: Given his length and speed, Kindle should be in the top three on this list. However, his inconsistency and off-field issues (he recently ran his car into an apartment building while texting-and-driving) might put off NFL teams. He did show flashes of meeting his potential as a rush linebacker during a first-team All-Big 12 season in 2008 (10 sacks). If he continues to improve as a senior, teams -- especially those envisioning him as a 3-4 pass rush specialist -- might find him too valuable to ignore in the mid-first round.

5. Colt McCoy, QB, Texas, 6-3, 210, 4.68: In some years, McCoy would have been in the hunt for a top 10 overall spot (see 2005, Alex Smith; 2002, David Carr; etc.). But given the likely exits of underclassmen Bradford and Mississippi's Jevan Snead, as well as the talent of Florida's Tim Tebow, McCoy might end up as a late first-round value. Teams will have questions about his arm strength (which is more than adequate) and ability to operate from under center, but not his leadership or character. Adding 15 pounds of muscle to his frame before last season while displaying excellent mobility and completing 75 percent of his throws for 34 touchdowns with only eight interceptions (outstanding numbers no matter the offense) raised his stock as a junior. Another campaign like 2008 could push him up team draft boards even further.

4. Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State, 6-6, 305, 5.26: A three-year starter in Stillwater at left (2007-2008) and right tackle (2006), Okung's size and athleticism make him a legitimate first-round prospect. Some league personnel men question his ability to stay with elite defensive ends on the edge, however. He must improve his footwork and balance in pass protection or else his future might be on the right side of the line -- and that could drop him from the top 10 to mid-first round.

3. Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma, 6-5, 308, 5.30: Williams received a second-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee after last season, but hopes to improve that while moving from right to left tackle for his senior year. Named first-team All-Big 12 in his first year as a full-time starter in 2008, Williams has the size and functional strength to dominate at times and is able to negate linebackers at the second level. But concerns about his lack of flexibility and inconsistent footwork will have teams wondering if his best position is on the strong or weak side.

2. Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma, 6-6, 260, 4.78: The highly regarded in-state high school recruit has factored into the Sooners air attack since he stepped onto campus. Gresham garnered All-American status last season with 66 catches for 950 yards and 14 scores in the prolific Oklahoma offense. Pro scouts see him as an all-around player capable of moving the chains and creating mismatches downfield -- something last year's top senior Big 12 tight end pro prospect, Brandon Pettigrew, couldn't say. Although Gresham is considered a primary receiving target and often lines up in the slot, he is a willing edge blocker who is likely to improve with more work in that area.

1. Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska, 6-4, 300, 5.02: A product of parents from Cameroon and Jamaica, Suh is considered by many to be the top senior prospect in America -- at any position. During his junior year in 2008, Suh transformed from potential star to dominant force. He earned first-team All-Big 12 honors by leading his team with 76 tackles, including 16 for loss and 7½ sacks. Unlike many defensive-line prospects who are pigeon-holed as fitting best in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme, Suh's combination of height, strength, agility and effort makes him a threat at the three-technique in a 3-4 or at defensive end in a three-man alignment. Comparisons to NFL All-Pros DT Kevin Williams (Vikings) and DE Richard Seymour (Patriots) are likely to continue as long as he produces at a high level.

The Buffalo Bills

The Bills made a extremly bad desition trading Jason Peters. They had a problem with their "O" line and then traded the best young offensive lineman in the league. They did get a 1st round pick out of it and had to use it on an offensive lineman who they don't even know if he will be any good.
Getting Owens did help their team but it wasn't very good for two reasons. One is that he will become (as he has in every city he went) a team distraction, and Two with no offensive line Trent Edwards won't have time to throw to Owens. They have talent but have to turn it into a team.
Their "D" is improving but as I said with no offensive line the team can't do much. They do have Eric Wood and Brad Butler but their "O" line is still doing bad. I think they will win about 6-10 or 7-9 and finish last in there divsion.

The Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans had a good season last year and if it wasn't for Chris Johnson getting hurt I think they would have won that game.

They have said Collins is going to start. I personally think if Vince Young can't get himself together and get the starting job next year he will be a backup for the rest of his career.

They added a much needed WR in Kenny Britt and Troy Kropog to improve their "O" line. Losing Albert Haynesworth was a heavy blow but they have such a fantastic defense already that losing him wasn't as bad as it would have been for any other team.

They also have young DT Sen'Derrick Marks who they got in the draft. I'm sure they hope he will take Haynesworth's place. But besides that, their defense is as tough as they come. Also getting Nate Wahington in Free Agency will get them that deep threat that they have never had.

I think if they can just get there passing game working they will have a Super Bowl throphy before long. I expect them to win 10 to 11 games if not more.

The Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars had a bad season last year and Garrard will probably get one more chance before the Jag's get a new QB.
They had a good offensive line draft getting Eugene Monroe and Eben Britton., Monroe is the best rated "O" lineman coming into the draft and Britton was predicted to be a first round pick so to get him in the second was good.
I think their "O" line will be strong this year but Garrard and his receivers have to get on track, although getting Torry Holt did help--but he isn't getting any younger and I don't know if Holt has another year left in him. Also their "D" isn't what it used to be but their running game should be better then ever this year, since they also picked up pro bowler Tra Thomas.
I think that the Jaguars will win 6 to 8 games but I still think they just don't have all the pieces this year and they have a pretty hard season ahead of them.

The Indianapolis Colts

Well now that Dungy is gone I think the Colts will not be as good this year just because it's a transition year going from Dungy to Caldwell.
I still think though they will have a good season and win the AFC South. I also think that the rookie QB out of Purdue, Curtis Painter, might become the future QB since Sorgi has never looked great. Also without Marvin Harrison this year, I think it will hurt them some...not to say that Anthony Gonzalez isn't good, but he is not Marvin Harrison. Also the "D" who looked bad in the first preseason looked a ton better in there last preseason game vs. the Eagles.
I think that is pretty much all for the Colts. I expect them to win about 11 to 13 games depending on there schedule.

The Houston Texans

Well I though they did ok last season, but I think they should have done better.

They have plenty of talent and should start making a name for themselves. They have Mario Williams and DeMarco Ryans on Defense and Andre Johnson and Matt Schuab on offense.

But I do think tossing Brian Cushing into the defensive scheme will help their "D" improve.

I watched them play the Chiefs in preseason and their running game looked pretty good. Steve Slaton was their big story last year, let's see if they can convert all the talent on the team into a Playoff team.

I think the Texans will win about 8 to 9 games this season.

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

The Pittsburgh Steelers

Well after coming off a Super Bowl season I'm sure they'd like a repeat this year. But I think they are good but they need to get some younger guys in their "D" they did draft Evander Hood from Missouri but it will take a while to replace that whole defense. They still have the guys at the moment so they could if they can beat the Patriots get a repeat season. They needed on another offensive lineman so there "O"line isn't very good this year but with a hard QB like Rothlisberger it should do alright. But there isn't really a lot to say about them, everyone saw them in the Super Bowl and it is possible (yet I don't think it will happen) for a repeat season. I think the Steelers will win 11 to 12 games this season.

The Cleveland Browns

The Browns had a good season in 2006 but fell hard in 2007 and 2008. In the 2009 draft however they traded back twice and got 2 second rounders out of the deal. They drafted Alex Mack a Center out of California and in the second round got Ohio State WR Brian Robiskie, Georgia WR Mohamed Massaquoi and Hawaii Linebacker David Veikune. They still have the decision of whether Quinn or Anderson will start. Also I think it was a good choice for them to sign Eric Mangini as Head Coach. He was just starting to build a team in NY when he was fired. I think that it will still be a while till they can look at getting into the playoffs. They have a "O"line and good opions in running and passing siuations and they have two decent QB's. The team seems to still be missing a piece of their puzzle. Their D needs a few more people and they could be looking at a good season because they have the talent to be good but they still need to put it into a team. I think they will win 6 or 7 maybe 8 at the most.

The Cincinnati Bangals

The Bangel did surprisingly bad last year but the return of a healthy Palmer should do the trick. They drafted Andre Smith with their first round pick. He did have an injury but if it does heal, he will be an excellent Offensive lineman to help Palmer. Also they got Rey Maualuga in the season round who was suppose to be a top ten pick but he as well dropped because of injury.
So that means if the injury part of the deal works out well they
will have an excellent "O" lineman and an excellent Linebacker.
And now fellow USC linebacker Keith Rivers will be able to play with Maualuga. So I am thinking if Ochocinco keeps his head this season they might be the third team in the NFC north fighting for the playoffs. They also picked up Cedric Benson, Roy Williams and Laveranues Coles in off-season. Now I think there only really soft spot is "O" line but Andre Smith should help that out. So I think if they can keep Ochocinco and Roy Williams quiet they should be able to at lease pull out 8 or 9 games this season.

Baltimore Ravens

Well they really improved after drafting Joe Flacco and now they have that Franchise QB that they have not had for a while. They did lose Bart Scott this year which was big for them but they still have Suggs and Lewis at the Linebacker position and the DB's are strong as usual but they aren't getting any younger. Drafting Michael Oher this year was not exactly what people were expecting but with a good QB and a good running game it is always good to improve the offensive line. Also Oher was suppose to be drafted top ten so to get him that late was a good pick up. Ravens I think will go about 10-6 or 11-5 and get a Wildcard spot.

One Team at a Time

Well I've decided to slowly each day do a thing where I talk about each team. And I am going to go by division North, South, East and West also I am going to start with the AFC first them I am going to go to the NFC. So today I am goingto start in Alphabetical order so today I am starting with the Baltimore Ravens.

Brady on the Mend

Well Brady looks
like he is on the mend
and it looks as if the
Patriots are on the
verge of another
championship season.
They had a good draft
and Mayo looks like he
will now be the new big
defensive player on the
Pat's "D". Also at WR they
have Moss, Welker and
newly acquired speedster
Joey Galloway. So now the
Pat's are going into this
season being ranked 1#
again lets see if it will
result in Brady getting ring 4#.

Big things this year

For today's post I just wanted to talk
about some big issues in the NFL.

The biggest at the time is Vick.
There was a rumor yesterday that
Wahington was going to sign him,
although there still is a chance they
might it doesn't look to likely as Vick's
agent is also Washington's starting QB
Jason Campbell's agent.
Also 49ers said they were not interested
in Vick early in July but as the coaches
and owners go through training camp and see that they don't have a thing at QB I woundn't be surprised to see him signed with in the next two weeks.

Another big deal early this year was Cassel being traded to the Chiefs for only a second round draft choice while Denver and the Jets were willing to give a first round draft choice. Maybe since as you have heard Cassel isn't doing very well in practice, Piolo when he was in New England thought Cassel was another Brady and Belicheck thought he was just another decent
QB, because why would New England trade away another Brady when Tom Brady is an 9 year pro.

Also there's the problem with Cutler. What ever McDaniel thinks you do not get rid of a QB that has only been in the NFL for 2 years and proved that he is a franchise QB even if you do get Orton and 2 first round draft choices, Cutler is one out of five first round draft picks. And to me it was a great deal for Chicago although I wouldn't my self give 2 first rounders it was still a good trade. Also if McDaniel's dosn't try to get along with a few people he is going to lose Brandon Marshal if he isn't careful.

I think a few teams that are being over looked by everyone is the Packers, who as you remember played in the NFC championship in 2007, the Seahawks--they have Tatupu, Hill and now Aaron Curry and they also got Redding, so the front 7 should be pretty good and I think they will be a pretty good team this year, and last but not least the Bronco's are rebuilding but they still have a great line and now have Knowshon Moreno. Their team is explosive but without Cutler it will be a little harder. I personally think that if they had Cutler they would be in position for a playoff birth if not the Super Bowl.

Well this season will be exciting and I'm looking forward to this season.

Who will sign Michael Vick? (From Alex)

Who will sign Michael Vick? I think either the Vikings just because QB Rosenfels isen't that good or the 49ers they don't have a good QB.

HOF Game 21-18 Titans win

Well I watched most of the Hall of Fame game after I got home from church and it was fun to see a football game again.

In the game there was this great play by the punter where he hiked the ball, pretended to punt it and then ran 50 yards for a TD.

Also Vince Young looked Ok but he still needs work.

As people thought, the Bills line really struggled and Edwards didn't have a lot of time in the pocket. Terrel Owens looked great so that should help the Bills a lot this year. Another thing is Collins played REALLY well and was very accurate.

If you hadn't heard New England traded for Raiders DE Derrick Burgess.

All in all, the game was good and the end score was 21-18, Titans win.

Not a good Idea (Alex)

During the Offseason the Denver Broncos traded QB Jay Cutler and their 2009 5th round pick for the Chicago Bears 2009 1st round pick and 3rd round pick, 2010 1st round pick and QB Kyle Orton. The problem with that is 1 0f 3 1st round picks do ok. 1 0f 5 do pretty good. 1 of 10 are Awesome. Jay Cutler if he had the right tools would have done great. So basically the Broncos traded a great QB for players that could just do ok.

Alex's Predicted Top 5 Teams

1. I think the Pats will because Cassel was good but he was nothing to Brady and the team did that good. Now Imagine how good they will be with Brady.

2. Unless the Steelers do like they did after Superbowl XL where they totaly slumped they have all the tools to go to this years Superbowl.

3. If rookie Jeremy Maclin turns out to be good the Eagles will have just about all of the positions in place to win a Superbowl.

4. The thing the Giants were lacking was receivers and now that they have 1st round receiver Hakeem Nicks, a 3rd round Wide receiver and a 3rd round Tight End they should be set.

5.The Falcons have about everything they need to go far especially since they traded for TE Tony Gonzalez.

Madden 10

Finally! On August 14 2009 madden 10 is set to come out. I visited the site the other day, the new things they have in it are pretty neat. Also in this one they are lowering all the rating of players so there is a bigger space bettwen good players and bad player. I am a big Madden fan myself and I have just finished my 5th season on franchise mode so it is pretty cool because guys like T. Brady and Manning have already retired and new young rookies are now the big players. here is the site. I'll post some pic's of the game soon.
