Waco is a growing city in Central Texas with a population of about 130,000 people. Within this growing city lies a private, baptist university with a growing reputation for success in college football, Baylor. Baylor is a modern example of overrated success, the American bandwagoner 's dream, and the copycat system of head coaches today in football.
The start of the 2015 NFL season has been anticipated all year. Since the end of last season, many fans, analysts, and teams have been counting down to the start of the regular season, proclaiming that this year is, “our year.” One of those team that has a gratifying chance of having “their year” is the Green Bay Packers. The Packers are one of the present day elite teams in the NFL. With arguably the best quarterback in the NFL, Aaron Rodgers, a high powered offense, a mediocre defense, and a young, yet experienced roster, Green Bay is a Super bowl favorite in the 2015 season.
The Bears, one of the greatest football teams of all time, well, at one point. The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois.

The Cleveland Browns are of to a devastating 0-4 start, but it's how we have lossed these games. Duke Johnson said it best after the loss to the Washington Redskins, "That's what's most upsetting: We're knocking on the door...We're just not finishing." Now, I'm not going to say that the Browns should have won those games, but they very easily could have a 3-1 record right now.
Let me tell you about a guy named Aaron Rodgers. He can throw a football so fast that it started a fire in the field. He also can run 200 miles per hour with the football and plough 15 people over at a time. One time in a game he threw a football so hard that it blew everyone out of the stadium. He can run the whole football field in less than 2 seconds. When he hurdles over a guy he can jump 100 feet in the air. When he scrambles the player on the other team tries to tackle him at the 50-yard line when Aaron Rodgers is already in the end zone.
In the 80’s and 90’s the san francisco 49ers won a total of five super bowls under Joe montana and steve young. Over the span of two decades this team dominated its competition from montana to young, there seemed to be a steady rate of success through the years. This success caught the attention of a young boy by the name of Tom Brady who idolized the legendary Joe Montana and inspired him to become the quarterback he is today.

Until last week divisional playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Brock Osweiler was the starter of the future in the present however last week the starter against the Steelers was Payton Manning a returning Manning who was sideline since week 11 after being pulling him out of the game in week 10, returned in week 17 but didn’t start until divisional round against the Steelers. Manning struggled in Denver last week due to the windy conditions at sports authority at mile high however all season Manning has looked like he has lost step in both arm strength and footwork ability.
One of the key characteristics that have set apart Brock Osweiler from the Houston quarterbacks from previous years is his ability to command and control the Houston Texans offense. Something like this doesn’t just happen. It takes hours of work watching film and studying the playbook, two areas of the game that Osweiler has been focused on since signing his $72 million contract last March.
