Doug: The greatest football season ever

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

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.
