The season starts in just a few weeks.
Even teams that lost their preseason games have things to be excited about. We saw how Colin Kaepernick and the niners shoved around the supposedly invincible Broncos during their team’s opening preseason game. If you’re a Cowboys fan (and you’re probably not if your reading this blog), you have to like how Dez Bryant was unstoppable against the Raiders. And Tampa Bay, in a blowout loss to Baltimore, still played well early in the game. Don’t know what I’d say if I were Steelers fan though. That team looks like they haven’t started training camp yet. If I were a Giants opponent this season, I’m on notice. That team looks like a contender already. Alex Smith, whom we remain skeptical of, drove the Chiefs down the field no problem against the Saints. Mike Vick and Nick Foules looked decent against New England. If you’re New England, they made the offense–except for Tim Tebow–look terrific against Philadelphia. Arizona looks different, shutting out Green Bay. And if you’re Green Bay, so what? You have Aaron Rodgers.
The teams are still working their way through camp, but they’ll be ready for the regular season opener. I dig this. No excuses, at least until the injuries start to mount.
