Got Yourself A Headache ? Try Being An NFL Player ?

It’s often said ………’it takes a tragedy to happen before we truly understand or appreciate one’s mortality’ and truly that saying hits home every time. Sadly last night while having a drink in a bar with friends after work it was reported that former NFL star , two time winning Superbowl player and Pro Bowler Dave Duerson died from a self inflicted gun shot wound. Unfortunately this tragedy doesn’t encapsulate the whole facet of the player’s life after his retirement from the NFL. The player had taken his life this past Thursday at his South Florida home in Sunny Isles .

Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right So How Come Both The NFL And NFLPA Come Off Looking Like The Biggest Idiots On The Face of The Planet ?

I’m not so sure what to make of the idiocy now taking place between the NFL and NLFPA (Players’ Union) as it relates to the collective bargaining agreement . Several of the patrons of my site have long held the belief that the league and union will come to an amicable agreement that will be equitable for all of the parties concerned . Well with the expiration of the existing agreement due to expire at midnight 3rd March , I’d seriously like to know how is it that the owners , at the league’s behest cannot simply reach agreement with the NFLPA headed by its President Kevin Mawae and Executive Director DeMaurice Smith . On the opposing side of the issue we have NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell , and the owners headed by some of the most powerful men within the game , Robert Kraft , Bud Adams , Jerry Jones , Woody Johnson , Steve Tisch , John K Mara , Pat Bowlen and Art Rooney II .

I hope you enjoyed the 2010 NFL season because there is a decent possibility that will be the last football you watch for quite some time. Hopefully that isn’t the case.

Hopefully the powers that be get their acts together so we can have a 2011 season. Personally, I wouldn’t mind a lockout if they lock out because the players refuse to play an 18-game schedule. That would be a disaster. Outside of the owners, I don’t think anybody wants to see that. The NFL wants to work on protecting its players, so how exactly does adding two more games reflect that?

Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez appeared on Jim Rome Is Burning and made an excellent point. He has played 14 seasons in the NFL. Had he played with an 18-game season, that adds 28 games. That is nearly an additional two NFL seasons. This is coming from a guy that has enjoyed no serious injuries in his career, missing only two games!

Bengal Tiger …………… No These Are The Cincinnati Bengals A Tiger That Is Of No Imminent Danger To Anyone !

OK so what were we to expect of the Cincinnati Bengals ? I’ve given up completely on Chad Ochocinco as a player who continues to disappoint not only on the field but off it. And which idiotic tv executive thought it appropriate to give both Ochocinco and Terrell Owens their own talk show ? Isn’t that like giving a loaded hand gun to a mass murderer ? You simply know in the end that no good can come of it all.

Press Play Or Rewind ……….

Well the NBA ___ season though not yet in full swing has given us a great deal to contend with and to discuss. Washington Wizards’ rookie point guard John Wall has already set himself apart from the rest of this season’s rookies with a grand entrance by posting a triple double in the team’s first win of the season. And if the player’s exhilirating displays are anything to go by then fans attending the Verizon Center in Washington DC will be in for a treat for much of the season.

Fair or not, it seems that the Vikings and Packers will be compared until future Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre decides to hang up his jersey. We all know that Favre played 16 illustrious years with the Packers before retiring in March 2008 and deciding to return in August 2008.

The Packers went with the young QB Aaron Rodgers and Favre was traded to the New York Jets, where he played for one year before retiring again. In August 2009, Favre returned to the Minnesota Vikings and is currently playing his second year there.

The NFL is a win now business; they do not put too much into past accomplishments and the good old days. The following players and coaches are 10 big names that have had some level of success in the NFL that are really staring at crossroads for their season or their career.

If these gentlemen do not have a good October and early November, they are going to be in miserable shape as the season hits the December homestretch.

1) Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre – This is a no-brainer for the top spot. Where do I begin with all his problems? The Vikings brought back 22 starters from a team that was 12-4 and lost a three-point overtime NFC Championship Game to the New Orleans Saints. Favre had 33 touchdown passes and seven interceptions in 16 regular season games last year; he has seven interceptions already.

What a crazy Week Four it was in the NFL; six games decided by three points or less, including three game-winning field goals. Donovan McNabb’s return to Philly was a successful one, while his replacement Michael Vick left the game with a rib injury.

The Browns finally got into the win column while the Rams notched two straight victories for the first time since Week Seven of the 2008 season. For the second straight week, the top two teams fall and a new No. 1 takes over.

24. St. Louis Rams (28): The St. Louis Rams have won more games in the past 10 days than they won all of last season. QB Sam Bradford is the real deal and is only going to get better.

25. Arizona Cardinals (21): Anybody else think that Larry Fitzgerald is at least slightly envious of his former teammate Boldin right about now?

It’s official! The NFL has returned, and I, for one, think we should have a doubleheader on Monday Night Football every week.

Anyway, the first week of the season showed us a few things.

First, maybe this is the year the Houston Texans make a playoff run.

Second, there are some extremely silly rules in the NFL rulebook (but rules are rules; I’m talking to you, Calvin Johnson).

Third, maybe the Dallas Cowboys aren’t as good as everyone thought—and lastly, maybe, just maybe, Chris Johnson can repeat his remarkable 2009 season.

Without further ado, here are the power rankings following Week One.

Teams’ previous ranking in ( ).

1. New Orleans Saints (1): A rematch of last year’s NFC Championship, with the same result. The Saints remain at No. 1 until somebody beats them.

Week One was not kind to me, as I managed to go only one game above .500 with a 9-7 record.

However, of the seven games that I picked incorrectly, five of them were decided by seven points or less. That gives me a reason for optimism, and I hope that the second week is kinder.

As always, the first five games are the games I have identified as the best matchups of the week, followed by the rest of the games.

1) Baltimore Ravens (1-0) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-1) – The Ravens showed their defensive muscle in their season opener beating the New York Jets 10-9, while the Bengals found themselves down 31-3 against New England before closing the gap and making the loss a more respectable 38-24. This week the two top teams in the AFC North square off with the Bengals looking to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start.
