Kid Reporter Jack: The Broncos Year in Review

It's been an interesting year for the Broncos, as many know...

The QB controversy made for a fun storyline for non-Broncos fans during the closing stretch of the season, and I personally still think Brock Osweiler is the best choice moving forward for the Broncos. I will admit, though, I feel bad for Peyton Manning. For the first time in his 18-year HOF career he finally has a good defense to back him up on the other side, and he breaks down. He has one of the best supporting casts of his career. Even so, he managed to lead his team to a 7-0 start to the season. He didn't play well, but I will give him credit for not absolutely blowing it in any of the games. It never got so out of hand that the defense couldn't fix it with a pick six, or a fumble. Still three picks and an OT win against the Browns was too close for comfort for Broncos fans, probably. Then, after the hot start, the Broncos lost two in a row, including a complete Manning breakdown in the matchup against the Chiefs.

In the final nine games, the Broncos were a model of inconsistency, going 5-4, and the promising Osweiler going up and down. Still, you can't turn down a win against the Patriots. Overall, Brock Osweiler went 4-2 in games where he started and wasn't replaced. Not bad heading into the postseason. On the defensive side, through most of the season it seemed to be from another world.

At other times (though rare) it seemed fairly average. While inconsistency in the closing stretch nearly kept this team out of the playoffs, I'd still rank them as one of the top teams in the league this year. By the way, in Manning vs. Osweiler debate, I'm on team Osweiler. He's younger and more mobile, and Manning has given the Broncos to reason to trust him this year other than his name. I'll leave you with that, and I hope you enjoyed this review of the Broncos season.

Kid Reporter Jack Predictions for Week 11. Do You Agree?

Last week was a crazy one in the NFL. The Lions beating the Packers, the Texans beating the Bengals, the Lions over the Packers... it was anarchy. What follows are my predictions for the next week.

All-time record: 12-3
Titans at Jaguars: I believe that Marcus Mariota is an extremely talented quarterback stuck with and extremely underwhelming football team. I also believe that no one Jaguars player is particularly great, but as a whole, they are a semi-talented team who, when they really want to, can play some decent football. Mariota will have a solid game as usual against the Jags, but the Jaguars will come away with the win in primetime. Jaguars, 17-14.

Redskins at Panthers:
The Redskins absolutely destroyed the Sqaints last week. Unfortunately, that was mostly the Saints' doing. Even though their 4-5 record isn't exactly terrible, it isn't that good, either. Plus, you know, there's just the minor detail of the Panthers being 9-0. And the Redskins being 0-4 on the road. Panthers take it, 34-20.

Rams at Ravens: This may actually be the worst game ever. The Rams are starting Case Keenum. No, you didn't misread that. Case Keenum. And the Ravens are... well, the Ravens. No matter how bad Case Keenum may be, I have confidence in the Ravens fiding a way to lose this one. It's their specialty. Rams... don't lose, 14-10.

Jets at Texans:
This could be a crucial game for both teams. The Jets have a great defense, and the Texans have a great J.J. Watt. Too bad for the Texans, eleven players usually beat one, and that will remain the case in this game. Jets, 28-10.

Buccaneers at Eagles: I would normally have picked the Sam Bradford-led Eagles in a heartbeat. These are the Mark Sanchez-led Eagles, though. That's a different story. Unlike most, I have full confidence going into every week that Sam Bradford will be a good quarterback and play well. Sanchez, however, does not warrant that same confidence. I don't think Jameis Winston is nearly as good as Marcus Mariota, but he is a young leader with potential. I think Mark Sanchez throws at least 2 TDs, along with 2 INTs. Jameis Winston and the Bucs will have to come through in the clutch, and they will win, 21-17.

Broncos at Bears:
I think the Broncos will be a better team with Osweilwer at QB. I also think that the Bears aren't nearly as bad this year as I though they would be, and Jay Cutler is actually playing half-decent football. John Fox probably knows Brock Osweiler better than anybody else, and the Bears will win this one, 23-20.

Colts at Falcons: The Falcons have dissapointed lately. But so have the Colts. I think that Matt Ryan and the Falcons will win in comeback fashion, as they have so many times this year, to win 30-24.

Cowboys at Dolphins:
Yay! Tony Romo is back! He will fix everything and be the Cowboys savior and win the Super Bowl for them, right? Wrong. But they will win this game, 28-17, and Romo will throw 3 TD passes.

Raiders at Lions: The Lions beat the Packers last week. Yeah. That happened. To be honest, I'm still trying to figure out what strange universe I've wandered into, but in the meantime I should let you know that the Lions are not a good football team, by any means. The Oakland Raiders, however, are, as much as it pains me to say it. They beat the Lions this week in dominating fashion, 38-17

Packers at Vikings: This is a hard one to predict. The Vikings are 4-0 at home, and the Packers are 2-2 on the road, and have lost 3 in a row. Something's up in Green Bay, and the outcome of this game rests entirely on Aaron Rodgers shoulders. 4 losses in a row seems drastic for any team, especially the Packers. Unfortunately for Green Bay, I fear they might lose this one. On the other hand, this is too important for Aaron Rodgers to be off his game. The Pack takes it in OT (maybe), 33-27. If they don't, it's time for Packers fans to panic.

Chiefs at Chargers: The Chiefs have had a great three-game stretch, and are quite clearly the best team in the NFL. Fine, maybe they're not. But they are a very good team, and are especially better than the Chargers. I have to say, I feel bad for Philip Rivers. He's a great quarterback, but his teams is terrible. They actually lost to the Ravens. That's sad. The Chiefs will win this game, 31-17.

Bengals at Cardinals: Primetime Andy Dalton made a special appearance on Mnday night. Oh, but don't worry, he's not done yet. He's got another goodie coming up. I don't care who they play, unless it's the Browns, never pick the Bengals on primetime. And, you know, the Cardinals are actually a really good football team. Cardinals take it, 37-10.

49ers at Seahawks: The Seahawks are not a good football team. There. I said it. Whoah. That felt good. But, the 49ers have Blaine Gabbert. The Seahawks defense isn't what it used to be. But the 49ers have Blaine Gabbert. The Seahawks, overall, are just playing bad football this year. But the 49ers have Blaine Gabbert. Even though the Gabbert-led 49ers won last week, they won't this week. Because, you know, Blaine Gabbert. 23-3, Seahawks win.

Bills at Patriots: The Bills are a good football team. The Patriots are a great one. Even though I feel like the Pats are ever so slightly on the decline, They'll still win this one, and remain undefeated. Sorry, Rex Ryan. It's just not gonna happen. Patriots, 27-24.

Okay, so those are my predictions. I hope I do well, and I wish your team luck. Unless I picked against them.

Kid Reporter Jack: Awesome predictions for Week 3

Kid reporter Jack knows all, tells all. See his picks below. Do you agree? Be sure to make your picks in Pick Em.

Nobody really knows who will win a football game, though they can give an educated guess.These are my predictions for every single game in Week 3 (minus the Thursday Night game. It's too late for that).

Falcons at Cowboys: The Falcons will continue on their roll, and Julio Jones will have at least 6 catches for 100 yards. Brandon Weeden can't carry the Cowboys to victory. Not this time. Falcons, 35-23.

Colts at Titans: For the first time in a while, this may actually be a close game. Andrew Luck will throw three touchdowns, and one interception in the game. Marcus Mariota will terrorize the Colts defense, avoiding Vontae Davis as much as possible. Mariota will lead the Titans to victory, 28-21. I could be wrong, though.

Raiders at Browns: This is a hard one to predict, seeing as these teams aren't exactly powerhouses, but I'll have to go with the Raiders. I believe Derek Carr will only become better and better throughout his career, especially after his last game against the Ravens. Derek Carr will throw 3 touchdowns and 250+ yards, and carry the Raiders to a 27-17 victory. Bengals at Ravens: Andy Dalton, Tyler Eifert, A.J Green, against... Joe Flacco and Steve Smith. Sorry Ravens. You're out. 31-17, Bengals.

Jaguars at Patriots: While I would love to see a fun upset win, I cannot predict with any dignity a Jaguars victory. Bortles will throw 2 touchdowns, though. Brady, however, will just toss the ball to the 10-foot tall Gronk, thus making the Jaguars look like a Pop Warner team. 49-14, Pats.

Saints at Panthers: Maybe if they had Brees playing, it could be, but without him, the 2-0 Panthers will prevail. Cam Newton will rush for a touchdown, and throw another one. 24-14, Saints. Eagles at Jets: One of the best defenses in the NFL, if not the best, against a far over-hyped offense. Oh, and the defense is playing at home. Jets, 28-10. Bucs at Texans: It will be interesting to see how Jameis Winston fares against the J.J. Watt-led Texans D. Overall, though it will be fun to watch, I believe that Ryan Mallet and the Texans will just barely overcome Winston's Buccaneers. 23-20, Houston.

Chargers at Vikings: Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson will just be too much for the Chargers to handle this week. 28-24, Vikings.

Steelers at Rams: Le'veon Bell's return will only add to the already superhuman group that is the Steelers offense, with Big Ben throwing 4 TDs, 3 of which to Antonio Brown, and Bell tacking on an extra two rushing touchdowns. Mind blown. 45-14, Steelers.

49ers at Cardinals: Don't make me laugh. The Cardinals will destroy the weakening Niners, 45-10.

Bills at Dolphins: This could actually be kind of fun. The Bills defense will prove to be an interesting test for Tannehill, and the Bills will win, 28-20.

Bears at Seahawks: The Hawks won't be very good this year. That's my shocking statement of the day. However, a team of toddlers could beat the Bears right now, and the Seahwaks will be no different. Plus, the Bears "defense" will be a great oppurtunity for Marshawn Lynch and Jimmy Graham to finally get going. 21-7, Seahwaks.

Broncos at Lions: I believe that this year, one thing will happen, week in and week out; Peyton Manning's wet noodle arm will continue to mess up, and the fantastic Broncos defense will continue to save their butts until the very end. And the Lions... they'll do their stuff. 21-17, Denver.

Chiefs at Packers: This is cruel, you guys making me do this. The Packers offense is brilliant, and their defense can only improve. Packers, 28-24.

Kid Reporter: Arrowhead

There are many great things about going to a football stadium, that's why games sell out week after week. But my favorite memory from going to a football game, which I've done twice, is when I attended the 41-14 slaughter of the New England Patriots. It was my first time going to a Chiefs game, and what a first impression. The Chiefs did everything right, including 2 interceptions, one of them being returned for a touchdown. The Chiefs did so good, the Patriots actually benched their future Hall of Fame QB. My favorite thing about attending a football game is that you actually get to see the players in the flesh, and get to see everything happen with your own eyes, not through a camera. Another one of my favorite memories is when I went to the game when the Chiefs beat the defending Super Bowl Champions, the Seattle Seahawks. In fact, they kind of dominated them, offensively at least. These are my favorite memories of football games.

Kid Reporter: The Bears are falling apart

"On any given Sunday, any team could beat any other team."At 3-6, the Chicago Bears are in last place in the NFC North. They have suffered legendary blowouts, and at the moment, they are going downhill. Recently, Brandon Marshall appeared on Inside the NFL. He talked about how the team lacks confidence and hope. Well then, that's just what they need to win; confidence and hope. They have more talent in just Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall than the Raiders and Jaguars have combined (no offense, Raiders and Jaguars fans). Jay Cutler can throw a good ball when he wants to, and, despite what scores in previous game suggested, talent exists on there defense. They just need to try harder, to be confident, be hopeful. They need to give it all they've got, and then some. In a couple years, they could be a Super Bowl contending team, if they just try to be. I truly believe the Bears can be a great team. You saw them at the beginning of the year. If they just fight for it.

Kid Reporter: Improvements

In the past five weeks, many teams have made good improvements, but there is one team that stands out. I think that the Dallas Cowboys have made the most improvements since week one. Since their Week 1 loss to the 49ers with a final score of 28-17, they've won five straight, most notable of which being 34-31 comeback victory against the Rams, and a 30-23 win against the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Seattle Seahawks. One of the improvements they've made is in their rushing attack. The Cowboys haven't really been known for their running ability the past few years, but this season DeMarco Murray (their running back) is arguably the best halfback in the league. This takes a lot of pressure off of 3-time Pro Bowl QB Tony Romo, and has helped improve his game. This improvement in both the rushing and passing game is why I think that the Dallas Cowboys are the most improved team in the league.

Kid Reporter: Looking Good

There have been many surprises this season. Many teams are 0-2 that we expected to be great. But there are a few teams that are really looking good. The first team is the Philidelphia Eagles. Though they didn't look fantastic in week 1, they did win. But what was really special is that they beat the Indianapolis Colts in their own stadium. Darren Sproles looked great, with 26 yards on four attempts, and 7 receptions for 152 yards. Another team that's looking really good is the Cincinatti Bengals, who are 2-0. Andy Dalton has thrown for 553 yards and 2 touchdowns, with no interceptions and a 105.4 passer rating. Those are the two teams that I think are doing really good this season.

Kid Reporter: Great Match

One match that I'm looking forward to this year is not a Chiefs game, like you would think. The game I'm looking forward to the most is on September 21, when the Seahawks rematch against the Broncos. Super Bowl XLVIII was an embarrassment for the Broncos. The two teams recently rematched in a preseason game, with the Broncos winning 21-16. But that was just preseason. The Broncos will be looking to win a real game against the Seahawks, after being embarrassed in February. The Seahawks will want to beat and prove that the Super Bowl wasn't a fluke, and that the Seahawks can beat the Broncos more than once. I personally think that the game will end Broncos: 27-Seahawks: 24. I don't think the Super Bowl was necessarily a fluke, the the Broncos desire to win is huge, and probably enough to do it. As Peyton Manning says, "Pressure is something you feel when you don't know what you're doing."

NFL Honors

The NFL Honors are coming up, and I think that Alex Smith should be named comeback player of the year. After being injured last year, and then being cut by his team, I think that this was a great year for him. Alex Smith threw 23 touchdowns and only 7 interceptions. He also threw for 3,313 yards. And to cap it all off. So Alex Smith has definetly had a good year, and that is why I think he should be the comeback player of the year.

Kid Reporter: Surprising Teams

I think the most surprisingly good team this year is the Philadelphia Eagles. I would have said the Carolina Panthers, but here's why I didn't: We already knew that Cam Newton was a good player.   Nick Foles is new, though. With 19 touchdowns, 1,791 yards, and a 125.2 passer rating with no interceptions, Foles has definitely taken the football world by surprise. When he threw for seven touchdown passes against the Raiders, I knew that Foles was a special player. In the first half alone, he

Since their 3-5 start, the Eagles have won four straight with Foles. This mixed with LeSean McCoy rushing for 1,088 yards and five touchdowns, the Eagles are really starting to soar!

 

 

 

 

Kid Reporter: Manning-Brady Bowl XIV

  This Sunday night, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots battle it out against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. This time, though, there is something more to figure out. This is Wes Welker's first game against the Patriots since he was cut and signed by the Broncos. So this is more than just Brady and Manning playing against each other, this is Wes Welker's chance to prove that it was a mistake to let him go. If you ask me, he's already done that, considering he has sixty-one recep

 

This Sunday night, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots battle it out against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. This time, though, there is something more to figure out. This is Wes Welker's first game against the Patriots since he was cut and signed by the Broncos. So this is more than just Brady and Manning playing against each other, this is Wes Welker's chance to prove that it was a mistake to let him go. If you ask me, he's already done that, considering he has sixty-one receptions for six hundred forty-eight yards, with 10.6 yards per catch and nine touchdown receptions.

 

Tom Brady, meanwhile, has not had the best season of his Hall of Fame career, but he has won seven games, and winning is the number one priority for any quarterback. Coming off of the controversial loss to the Panthers, the Pats have a bit of a chip on their shoulder, and will probably be very determined to win this game. Tom Brady possesses a 9-4 record against Peyton Manning, and is hoping to win his tenth game against The Sheriff. Personally, I think this could be the best game of the year. The Broncos do have a bit of an advantage, considering the comparison between the two QBs:


Touchdowns: Manning: 34, Brady: 14.
Interceptions: Manning: 6, Brady: 7.
Passing Yards: Manning: 3,572, Brady: 2,552.
Passer Rating: Manning: 118.3, Brady: 83.6.


This game is going to be so close that it's almost impossible to predict. I can see it going either way. Whatever the score is, I bet the game will be decided by no more than a touchdown. Truthfully, I can easier see the Broncos preforming a blowout than the Pats. But, if both the offense and defense can keep up, than the Patriots can definitely win this. But, that's a big "if." I can't give a good prediction, so I'll just leave it at this: It's going to be good!

 

 

 

Kid Reporter: The Chiefs Are Looking Good!

  My favorite team is looking pretty good this year! The Chiefs have won every game of the season. They have a league-high 36 sacks, which is an average of 4.5 sacks per game. If they keep that going, they'll end the season with around 72 sacks! The Chiefs have only allowed 98 points all season, which makes an average of allowing only 12.25 points per game.   They're not ALL good, though. Though Alex Smith has definitely brought some greatness to the team, but that can't erase the fact

They're not ALL good, though. Though Alex Smith has definitely brought some greatness to the team, but that can't erase the fact that he went three straight games without a touchdown pass. I think that if they give Alex Smith some more short passes (short meaning 5-9 yards), then he will succeed very well. The MVP (or more preciscely, the Co-MVPs) for the Chiefs would have to be Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. Tamba Hali has 26 tackles, 9.0 sacks, and an interception on the season. Justin Houston has 29 tackles and 11.0 sacks on the season. I think that's a good MVP case for midseason.

 

The fan in me says the Chiefs are going to go 16-0 and make all the way to the Super Bowl and win it, but the NFL Reporter in me says that the Chiefs will be 13-3 or 14-2, and definitely make the playoffs.

 

 

 

International Series

Poll. Which team will win the International Series Game?

Can the Jags pull off a win against the Niners, while playing in London. If you ask me, no. The 49ers offense will overpower the Jag's defense, and though Chad Henne has showed signs of greatness, his stardom will have to wait. Colin Kaepernick has an 85.0 passer rating, which, in case you didn't know, is pretty good. Chad Henne, meanwhile, has a 72.9 passer rating, with only 2 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. He also has 1,222 yards, which is actually pretty good for a guy who has only started 4 games this year. Also, there's just the simple fact that the Jags are 0-7, compared to the 49ers 5-2.

 

My prediction for this game:
49ers: 25
Jaguars:24

As for the coaches, they'll probably just not want to be coaching a football team at midnight. And the officials will be too tired to pay as close attention as they usually do. This is why I think it is a bad idea to play football that late.

 

 

 

Kid Reporter: The Perfect Fantasy Team

  My suggestions for your fantasy team right now are as follows:   For quarterback, Peyton Manning. After only 4 weeks, he has thrown for 16 touchdowns, with 1,470 yards and a 138.0 passer rating with 0 interceptions! Not only that, but he's led the Broncos to a 4-0 record!   For the running back, Adrian Peterson.

For quarterback, Peyton Manning. After only 4 weeks, he has thrown for 16 touchdowns, with 1,470 yards and a 138.0 passer rating with 0 interceptions! Not only that, but he's led the Broncos to a 4-0 record!

 

For the running back, Adrian Peterson. With 92 carries, he has piled on 421 yards in four games with 4.6 yards per touch, and 5 touchdowns.

 

For your wide receiver, pick Julio Jones. With 33 receptions, he has 481 yards, creating 14.6 yards per reception and 120.2 yards per game! He also has two touchdowns.

 

For your tight end, Jimmy Graham is your man. He has 23 receptions, for 358 yards and 15.6 yards per catch, with 89.5 yards per game. That's a lot for a tight end!

 

Then, you should pick the Chiefs defense. They've held their opponents to 41 points total, which is only 10 points per game.

 

I'm going to leave the wild card to you. Good luck!

 

 

 

Kid Reporter: The Steelers Need Improvement!

0-3 is NOT a good record for a team that was 12-4 two years earlier. If they win the next game and then continue that pattern for the rest of the season, they'll end up 4-12, the exact opposite record of the one they had two years ago.   Last year they were .500, or 8-8, four fewer games than in 2011. IF they end up 4-12, that would continue a pattern of 4 fewer wins each season, the first in the streak being 2011. The Steelers used to be really good, and were the team to beat in the AFC No

Last year they were .500, or 8-8, four fewer games than in 2011. IF they end up 4-12, that would continue a pattern of 4 fewer wins each season, the first in the streak being 2011. The Steelers used to be really good, and were the team to beat in the AFC North. But now, they've gotten worse, and the Ravens have gotten better, and Baltimore has now taken over the team-to-beat position. With the Browns showing slight signs of improvement, and the Bengals going back to their relatively talented ways, the Steelers are on the path to being in only 3rd or 4th place in their division this year.

 

 

Kid Reporter: My Takeaways So Far This Season

My first takeaway this season is that the Chiefs are definitely improving under new head coach Andy Reid and new quarterback Alex Smith. They crushed the Jaguars, 28-2, in their first game of the season! That kind of a performance isn't just luck, and it also means the Chiefs defense is probably going to be pretty good this year. In Week 2, it was a lot closer, 17-16, but, again, it takes talent to hold Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and DeMarco Murray to 16 points, while still s

That kind of a performance isn't just luck, and it also means the Chiefs defense is probably going to be pretty good this year. In Week 2, it was a lot closer, 17-16, but, again, it takes talent to hold Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and DeMarco Murray to 16 points, while still scoring enough to win yourself.

 

My second takeaway is that despite being 37 years of age, Peyton Manning is as good as ever, maybe even better, because he tied a NFL record for 7 touchdowns in Week 1, with 462 yards. Already 2 weeks in, Peyton Manning has passed for 9 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and 769 yards for a 131.0 passer rating. That's impressive for 37.

My Most Memorable Play of the 2012 NFL Season

    My most memorable play of 2012 was when Jacoby Jones returned the opening kickoff of the second half of the Super Bowl 108 yards for a touchdown. When this happened, the Ravens became the first team to have two kickoff returns for a touchdown in their Super Bowl history. The first being Jermaine Lewis' in 2000.     With this play, Jacoby set the post-season record for longest kickoff return. Previously, the record was 102 yards, as done by Eric Weems of the Atlanta Falcon

With this play, Jacoby set the post-season record for longest kickoff return. Previously, the record was 102 yards, as done by Eric Weems of the Atlanta Falcons in 2010. Jacoby also became only the second player in NFL history to have two 50+ yard touchdowns in one Super Bowl. The first was the Washington Redskins' Ricky Sanders back in '88.

 

 

Jacoby had two kickoff returns in the 2012 regular season, a 105 yarder against the Oakland Raiders, and a 108 yarder against the Dallas Cowboys.

 


The amazing strategy this play took and the amount of history it made is why it is my most memorable play of 2012.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who Are You Calling Underdogs?

Poll. Who will improve the most after their mediocre 2012 season?

I believe the Kansas City Chiefs have the best chance of teams that finished last this past season to make the playoffs next year. With Alex Smith at QB, Jamaal Charles running the ball, a great overall receiving team, and Brandon Albert and possibly even Luke Joekel on the offensive line, the Chiefs are going to have one of the most powerful offenses in the NFL. On the defensive side, Tamba Hali and Justin Houston are both great players, and in my opinion, two of the best linebackers in the NFL. They also have Eric Berry coming back from an injury and Javier Arenas. And last but not least, they have Corey Mays anchoring the defensive line. These are the reasons why I think the Kansas City Chiefs will be playoff-bound next year. I've got my fingers crossed!

 

The Best Division In The NFL

Poll. Which NFL Division is the best?

There are many divisions in the league that are rising stars, many that have one or two great teams, and a few that are a mixture of both. But there is only one division that really stands out-the NFC North. The NFC North consists of the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions. 

In 2011 all but one team had at least a .500 record, and in 2012 all but one team had a record north of that. The past two MVP awards have been awarded to players in this division- Green Bay Packer’s Aaron Rodgers and Minnesota Viking’s Adrian Peterson. In 2011, Rodgers set an NFL record leading the league with a passer rating of 122.1.


When it comes to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Bears have a NFL franchise record of 26 players and the Packers are second with 21 players. This division has featured many great quarterbacks, including The Green Bay Packers' Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, the Vikings' Fran Tarkenton and Brett Favre (again), the Lions' Matthew Stafford, and the Bears' Jay Cutler. There are also the running backs to think about, most notably the Detroit Lions' Barry Sanders, The Chicago Bears' Walter Payton, and the Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson. 

If you like high-scoring, offensive football, watch the NFC North. 



My Favorite Player: Jamaal Charles

My name is Jack, and my favorite player is Jamaal Charles. Jamaal Charles was drafted in 2008 and is a Pro Bowl Halfback for the Kansas City Chiefs. Charles was voted by his teammates as the Most Valuable Player two consecutive years (2009-2010). Since being drafted, he has been putting up incredible numbers. In three of his five seasons, he has rushed for over 1,000 yards. In 2011, he suffered a season-ending injury in week 2. However, he came back the next year and rushed for 1,509 yards. In w

In week 3 of 2012, Charles had an astounding 33 touches, and instead of getting tired, he made the most of it, rushing for 233 yards. He continued to excel throughout the season, despite his team struggling as a whole. These are the reasons why Jamaal Charles is my favorite player.

 

Darrelle Revis' New Home

Darrelle Revis is one of the best and most exiting players in New York Jets history. But I think they will cut him, and I’m here to tell you where I think he’ll be in 2013. The Pittsburgh Steelers recently cut James Harrison, a Pro Bowl linebacker who can tackle ball carriers and intercept passes. Now, all they really have is Troy Polamalu, who is a great player. But can one safety lead a whole defense by himself? I think the Steelers will sign Darrelle Revis to a five year deal beca

But can one safety lead a whole defense by himself? I think the Steelers will sign Darrelle Revis to a five year deal because after cutting Harrison, they need to regain their defensive attack, a reincarnation of their Steel Curtain Defense. With Revis, a good linebacker from the Draft, and a wide receiver to replace Mike Wallace, Pittsburgh could improve greatly from their mediocre 8-8 2012 season, and maybe even make a Super Bowl run.
