Football Returns: A look back at 2011 and Questions for 2012
Finally! Football is back!
College football kicked off last week. The game of the week was between #2 Alabama at #8 Michigan and the defending national champion Crimson Tide completely obliterated the Wolverines 41 to 14.
The NFL kicks off tomorrow night at 8:30 EST with a game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Super Bowl Champion New York GIants. What will the season bring us? Will the Green Bay Packers roll over competition again in the NFC? Will the New England Patriots appear at yet another Super Bowl? Will Tom Brady ever win another? Always the ultimate competitor, will Payton Manning win a Super Bowl with his new team, the Denver Broncos, so that he can match the two now won by little brother Eli?
Will the Pittsburgh Steeler and Baltimore Raven rivalry produce more on field fighting? Will the New Orlean Saints take out bounties on opposing players starting an on field brawl between them and the Carolina Panthers?
After leading the Broncos to an improbable playoff appearance Tim Tebow finds himself starting the season backing up Marc Sanchez with the New York Jets. Do the New York Giants or Atlanta Falcons have the most dynamic wide receiver duo? Does it matter? The Green Bay Packers have three but the Detroit Lions has Megatron. The Carolina Panthers had the most unlikely explosive offense on the field last year lead by rookie quarterback Cam Newton. Does he do it again or does he suffer a sophamore year setback?
So many questions and none of them will be answered until December. But the number one question as always: Who wins Super Bowl XLVII?
It should be another fun and exciting season but first let us look back at last season. From back breaking hits to amazing catches, on field brawls to spectacular catches, from season ending injuries to record breaking performances to the New York Giants improbable Super Bowl victory, 2011 was a season to remember. Enjoy the video.
