I realize everyone’s sick of Brett Favre. Tuesday, however, solidified something for me. 2009 will be the greatest football season in the history of the sport. The story lines are better than most of the novels ever written.
Just try to make your playoff predictions. The AFC had an 11-5 team miss the playoffs while the NFC had a 9-7 team represent them in the Super Bowl.
If we spin around the divisions we can’t even contain it.
Favre’s out; Sanchez in
Palmer and Ocho Cinco
The only rookie QB to ever win a road playoff game
Remember Quinn? Remember Man-genius?
Oh, and the SB Champions
Peyton without Harrison
Del Rio’s last year?
Houston’s break out year
Oh, and last year’s number one seed
The Josh McDaniels implosion
The Todd Haley Project
Does Rivers finally match Eli and Big Ben?
Al Davis punches the Cable guy
Romo without Jessica
NY without guns in sweat pants
Zorn’s last year with the maroon and black
Ryan, Roddy, Tony & Turner
Remember when NO was marching a few years ago?
The return of the Seahawks
& The battle of death defying training camps
The defending conference champions with a HOF QB and the Best player the league has to offer
McCarthy, Thompson & Rodgers vs their future in the NFL
Favre v GB, Favre v Thompson, Favre v McCarthy, Favre v Rogers, Favre v Lombardi
Daunte v Minn, Stafford v league, Lions v 0-32
Cutler v Himself
The next thing you know college football will have two Heisman trophy winners playing in the same season. Oh wait…sorry Colt McCoy, Terrelle Pryor, Javid Best, Zac Robinson and Archie Griffin, but that’s exactly what we have.
Labor Day weekend starts the Greatest Season in the history of football. It doesn’t end until Super Bowl XLIV in Miami.
