As much as the first Sunday of the NFL season is a great day, the day after…to me…is pretty entertaining too.
-“Randy Moss is the comeback player of the year!”
-“Why did teams pass on Adrian Peterson?”
-“The ‘new’ Terrell Owens didn’t dance after his TD catch.”
– “My (Chiefs/Browns/Falcons) are going 0-16”
-“My (Colts/Pats/Steelers) are going undefeated!”
-“John Kitna’s making good on his 10-win prediction.”
Each year it’s the same thing. Each year the first few weeks of the season someone starts hot or cold and everyone either jumps on or off the bandwagon. The media bites on this every year too. Watch the football shows the next few weekends and how the experts declare that “this team is a lock for the playoffs” or “this team is in a must-win situation in week 3.”
The NFL makes us wait so long for the start of the season, there’s so much build-up, fans explode with emotion after week one. A guy I know is a big Bears fan and he’s done, in his mind, after week one. Just months after his team makes it to the Super Bowl, he’s miserable after 60 minutes of football.
So again, I want to hear from you. If you BELIEVE your team is in great shape or in bad shape already, tell me why. And if you a skeptical of a team’s big week one, I want to hear that too.
