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.


Brady’s back

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



Delhomme’s revenge

Ryan, Roddy, Tony & Turner

Missing Chuckie

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.

In Carson Palmer I trust

Every $19.95 invention grabbed my attention. If I buy now, I can get my offer doubled. However, this offer is not available in stores! From age 5 to 14, almost every time an ad came on TV with an incredible idea, my dad would say, “If the offer is too good to believe, don’t.” Dad, […]

Great does not make Todd Gurley right for the Arizona Cardinals

A completely healthy Todd Gurley will be a great player in the NFL. The Arizona Cardinals should not draft Todd Gurley.
