Another NFL football season is on its way and what a great way to start off the season. The Packers and the Saints delivered a great game yesterday night by show boating two of the top offenses this season. The QB play of both teams showed why they are called elite. I predict that they will be somewhere in the end.
This weekend does not let up. There are the Steelers and the Ravens which is an intense rivalry in itself. The Jets and the Cowboys will square off as both Ryan coaches will be on opposite sides of the football field. Its always a special opening weekend for the NFL. People will drive to the stadium, tail gate and have a party cheering on their teams. Everyone will wear their teams jerseys and colors and root for the home team expecting greatness. Opening weekend is for every fan’s hopes of having their team represented in the Super Bowl. I am biased with my prediction for the upcoming season like all Steelers fans. I believe that the Steelers will be fine this season. I believe that they will be there in the end as well. Other teams to watch are the Patriots, Eagles, Chargers, Falcons, as well as the teams I mentioned above. Some teams that might surprise are the Bears, Texans, Buccaneers, and maybe the Lions. It is a long season and some might bow out and some might be kicking the door down to the playoffs and to the chance of winning the Super Bowl.
Some of the questions this season are who will be the most valuable player in the league and who will help their team reach the pinnacle of winning the Super Bowl. Some of these players that have a very good chance of winning are Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Ben Rothlisburger, Philip Rivers, Joe Flacco, or possibly Matt Ryan. Obviously, these are quarterbacks with outstanding teams, but without an array of great players on the team, no matter what the quarterback does, it is a hard road to having success in the playoffs. All playoff teams to advance to the Super Bowl have shown that they are a complete team with very special players, especially at the quarterback position. Having a great defense obviously helps.
So, who will it be this year? Which team will hoist the Lombardi Trophy? My biased prediction are the Steelers. So, let the season begin with your favorite team’s success.
