the NFL regular season kicks off tonight. twelve hours from now it’ll be about halftime of the first game of the year. i’m pretty excited. the NFL is the league/sport i follow/pay attention to the most. does that make me a bad Canadian?
here’s a few thoughts heading into the season, and my Super Bowl pick…
the Colts – Andrew Luck looks great, but so did Manning as a rookie and they still lost over ten games. it’ll be a struggle for Colts fans.
the Jets – is this a sinking ship? i hope not. i like Rex Ryan. i like Tebow. i like Sanchez. i like this team. it might get worse, though.
the Lions – restore the roar! i really hope the Madden curse does not hit this year.
the Saints – how will they respond to all the drama?
da Bears – i hope they do well. the NFL is always better when the Bears matter.
the Texans – a lot of people expect good things from the Texans; they’re even a sexy Super Bowl pick. i don’t see it. i think they’ll win the AFC South because it’s a weak division. they’ll lose in the playoffs.
the Cowboys – Zzzz.
the REFS – the NFL has got to get these guys back. it’s embarassing. these replacement refs have got to go. i think it’s simply over a couple million dollars now. show them the money. this is the best game in the world, we need the best refs in the world officiating.
Super Bowl pick – Steelers over 49ers.
“you play to win the game.”
