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 .

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.

The 2010 NFL regular season is finally here, and it is time to pick the opening games of the season. The opening month is always the toughest to pick, as it is difficult to figure out if teams with good preseason play can carry that over to the regular season and if teams with bad preseason play are able to flip the switch.

It is also difficult to figure out which bad teams from last year truly improved and which playoff teams are on their way to disappointment.

Each week I will pick the five best games of the week followed by the rest of the games. In 2009, my record was 168-88.

Every year there are matchups in the preseason that are intriguing, because they may be possible Super Bowl previews.

It is even better when those matchups take place in the third preseason game. Thursday Night was one of those nights when the Indianapolis Colts took on the Green Bay Packers. Both teams made the playoffs in 2009.

The Colts won the AFC Championship Game and lost to the New Orleans Saints 31-17 in the Super Bowl and the Packers were a wild card team that lost in the first round to the Arizona Cardinals 51-45 in overtime.

Which pitcher has the most wins in Major League Baseball history? The answer is Cy Young with 511 career wins. Which pitcher has the most losses in MLB history? The answer is also Cy Young with 316 career losses.

Who is MLB’s all-time strikeout leader? The answer is Nolan Ryan with 5,714. Who is the all-time leader in career walks? The answer is also Nolan Ryan with 2,795.

What these players have in common is longevity. Young pitched 23 years in MLB, retiring at the age of 44 years old. Ryan pitched 27 years, retiring at the age of 46 years old.

One of the positives about having a long career is that a player can put up great numbers and rewrite the record books. However, that player can also make quite a few bad plays and break some records that he would rather not own.

Now that training camps are finally here, it is time to make predictions of how each team will do in 2010.

Here is my breakdown of each division in the NFC.

NFC East

The Favorites: The favorite in this division has to be the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas had a very balanced offense led by QB Tony Romo that ranked second in yards gained, sixth in passing yards gained and seventh in rushing yards gained.

They also have a defense that was second in points allowed. They added rookie WR Dez Bryant in the draft to help their offense. A possible area of concern is still the safeties, which was a big reason the Cowboys were 20th in pass yards allowed. They also have to hope their offensive line comes together, as they did release OT Flozell Adams this offseason.  He has since signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Alex Smith was just simply amazing at the college level in football. With the Utah Utes, Smith led them to the Fiesta Bowl, along with a Liberty Bowl. Smith would finish out his career with 21-1 record, along with being one of the finalists for the Heisman.

Smith had very high expectations coming into the 2005 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers were a struggling team, and they needed a franchise quarterback. Smith would have to be the option.

So with that, the 49ers selected quarterback Alex Smith as the number one overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft.

The 6’4″, 220-pound quarterback didn’t have a swell rookie season, however; posting 875 yards, one touchdown and ELEVEN interceptions, along with a 50.9 completion-percentage. All of this would go towards a miserable 40.8 rating.
