The Green Bay Packers traveled to Gillette Stadium tonight to face the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. The Patriots came into the game trying to forget about their off-season stemming from the “Deflategate” scandal. Tonight, we got to see just how the Patriots offense would look for the first four games potentially without their field general, Tom Brady. Brady is looking at a potential four-game suspension unless the court decides to reverse the league’s decision. Both teams’ first strings played the entire first quarter, however, the Packers saw the bulk of the action.
Veteran coach Bill Parcells in charge and the successful stockpiling of awesome talent through the NFL draft, the Patriots won the AFC Championship in 1996 and earned a trip to their second Super Bowl but lost to the Green Bay Packers 35-21. In 2001, the Pats hired a new head coach, Bill Belichick. The 6th round pick, Tom Brady replaced Drew Bledsoe who got injured by a jets playing hitting him hard and decleating him. Lucky for that Patriots, Tom Brady became a rising star while completing the season winning Super Bowl XXXVI 20-17 by a winning field goal by Adam Vinatieri. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have created a present-day dynasty in New England.
How do you think that TCU and Baylor feel after they missed the cut for the college football playoffs? They had the same record as Ohio State(the fourth seed) who ended up winning the playoffs; and they both won their bowl games that they played in. Right now the college football playoff only consists of 4 teams that the playoff committee selects based on record and strength of schedule.

I was starting cornerback, andwe won a championship. And I just went to Tennessee for a football tournament with kids that were a grade above me. Everything was going so well for me, but the one thing I was missing was a touchdown. That was the one thing I needed in order for me to say to my 10 year old weird self “I am one of the greatest football players at my age.” Now at that time I was starting cornerback on defense, but on
Ethics is the heart of leadership. Unfortunately for years now in sports being basketball or football, especially in the college level if you are not getting results as a head coach, you could be fired. It does not matter if you have a respectable program with student athletes graduating and the academic progress report (APR) is at an all time high for the university. The only thing that matters in getting wins and going to bowl games. What is the right thing to do?
Super Bowls are great for an overall view of the quality of a franchise over time but they don’t really give us a realistic look at how that franchise stacks up against the others on a year-to-year basis. Playoff appearances on the other hand do. It’s impossible to win a Super Bowl if you can’t make the playoffs. Going to the playoffs generally means that team was better than most in the league and can possibly contend for a Super Bowl. Lets take a look at how well Jerry Jones the General Manager has faired in making the playoffs without Jimmy Johnson as the head coach.

With cap cuts coming, are the Steelers scouting a new middle linebacker at the combine? As I wrote in one of our past prospect watches, the Steelers could draft a middle linebacker in the mid-round of this year’s draft. Lawrence Timmons is owed over $15 million and his production has slipped over the past few seasons. One of the most decorated middle linebackers in this draft is Scooby Wright out of Arizona. This former two-star recruit burst on the national spotlight leading the Wildcats to an appearance in the Fiesta Bowl in 2014.
