Just last week the Green Bay Packers lost their number one star receiver, to yet another ACL injury. But you have to focus, regroup, and keep moving. Undrafted second year corner Tyler Patmon is the next man up in my opinion The Cowboys also seem to be quite fired up about him as well. The Cowboys cannot replace Scandrick, but Patmon seemed to impress players and coaches alike this training camp. Coach Garrett said "He has a lot of the same traits that Orlando has, his strengths are the instinctive way that he plays, his ability to make plays, just has an overall good feel for the game.
The Green Packers look like they are going to go to the Super Bowl this year with one the best teams they have had in a few years. Aaron Rodgers looks to lead them to a lot of victories this season. The Packers beat the 49ers today 17 – 3. When thinking about the 49ers offense even without Frank Gore, they are still one of the best offensive teams in the league. The Packers will probably go close to 16 – 0 this season and will probably being going very far into the postseason.

Meanwhile, ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas said that the Bucs are simply paying David “what he’s worth” in response to the question why he was paid like a middle linebacker even though he is staying on the outside. Yasinkas mentioned that in “the Tampa 2 defense, David is as important as any middle linebacker.”

Dan Snyder the Redskins owner, decided to franchise tag Kirk Cousins because he showed the most improvement and felt like he could be the future franchise quarterback in the nation’s capital. As for Robert Griffin III, he was released because he could not stay healthy and could not preform when the team needed him. If Robert didn’t get injured and had solid years he would have been the franchise quarterback the Redskins were hoping to get out of the 2012 draft. For Kirk Cousins the Redskins did franchise tag him, however; it was only one year, so if he does terrible they don’t have to extend his contract. If he exceeds Washington’s expectations they will extend his

While finally establishing himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, QB Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers continues pressing football fans to love or hate him. Regardless which side of the fence any particular fan may find themselves, Newton has made it very clear he doesn 't really care. During his 5-year NFL career and even while playing his college ball at Auburn, Newton has never been one to worry about how polarizing he can be to the people around him. Its that strong persona that has carried him through several seasons when he was being criticized as the man who couldn 't win the big game at the NFL level.
Houston has never lost a playoff game at home. The offense is good enough to score a few points, and if the defense plays well enough, that is all they will need to win a game or two. I doubt the Texans will win the Super Bowl, but crazier things have happened. Houston is a good team that should not be overlooked. They may not be world beaters, but this is a scary team with J.J. Watt on the defensive lone.

Until, I finally catch the ball, for the first time. It was an incredible feat. My brother, 12 at the time, ran to me picked me up and celebrated with me. For the next 12 years whenever I am faced with a difficult challenge, my brother always reminds me of the football.
Win-Win “It’s never been about football, but about becoming the best and fullest person I could be.” NFL star, Michael Oher, says, “And to think I went from the kid with a GPA in the basement to going to college on a football scholarship.” When Michael Oher’s athletic abilities gave him an opportunity, he realized he would have to apply himself both in the classroom and on the field; likewise, many dedicated college student athletes view sports as a key to access higher education.

Once I strapped on the helmet and shoulder pads, I was hooked. Let me tell you first off, I loved football, but we were not a good team in my youngers days.
