Panthers don't stand a chance! Saints defense is to strong the Panthers don't stand a chance! They have home field advantage and a loud crowd. Cam Newton won't be able to scramble through the tough New Orleans Saints Defense! It will be a good game but The Saints will come out on top!

The best part of Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans was watching two average teams come together and play an unexpected epic game.
History was made when two brothers came together to compete against each other in their first NFL rival game. The games nickname The Harbaugh Bowl, Super Baugh, Brother Bowl, and Superbro.
Second, history was made again when Jacoby Jones of Baltimore returned a kickoff 109 yards for a touchdown. The longest return in Super Bowl history. It later was ruled a 108 yard touchdown.
Lastly, history was made again when the stadium lost power which caused a delay in excess of 34 minutes. It too got a nickname, The Blackout Bowl. This was a game that will go down in the history books. It doesn't get more exciting than this.
Congratulations Baltimore on a monumental Super Bowl win!

I have waited all winter to get back into the ocean and surf! It keeps me in shape for football and is one of my favorite things to do. Living at the beach has its benefits, but I just wish our summers on the east coast were longer!
There are also lots of other ways to be active at the beach, which is great. Body-boarding, swimming, and playing touch football or beach volleyball with friends can all be a lot of fun. The summer makes it easy to stay active since it's so beautiful outside!
Giants vs. Patriots in Indianapolis on February 5, 2012! The last time the Giants met the Patriots in the Super Bowl was 2008. Giants had the largest upset in sports history with their unbelievable win! It was the best Super Bowl I've ever seen.
I plan on watching the Giants win again in 14 days! Big Blue all the way through!
It couldn't have been a better game, except of course, if the Giants had beaten the Packers!
No question that the Packers will be in the playoffs. Not only will they make the playoffs, but I think they are going to go all the way. It will be hard to stop the momentum they have going on.
I still have hope that my Giants will make it but they have a really tough schedule ahead of them.
|"The Giants needed a Cornerback and Prince fits the bill!"||Without a doubt is Prince Amukamara. An All-American and Big 12 Defenseive Player. The Giants needed a Cornerback and Prince fits the bill!
He is a physical player, possessing solid football speed and top ball skills. He was one of the best seniors in all of college football according to NFL scouts. Great Draft pick for the Giants! Can't wait for the season to start.
Go Big Blue!
|"A night I won't soon forget."||
A night I won't soon forget. The evening started off with so much excitement in the atmosphere. Throughout Radio City Music Hall, reporters and fans were everywhere. Even the Vince Lombardi Trophy and the 44 Super Bowl rings were on display. It was so cool. I waited with excitement for the 2011 NFL Draft to begin.
As the Draft got underway, I positioned myself so that I could view the stage for the first pick. Roger Goodell walked up to the podium and announced "With the first pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, Carolina Panthers select Cam Newton"! It was so exciting, Cam, who played quarterback for the University of Auburn, came down the aisle where I was standing and slapped hands with me! It was the best feeling in the world! Von Miller, a linebacker from Texas A&M, was chosen with the second overall pick by the Denver Broncos and was an incredibly nice person as well.
Thursday night was filled with even more excitement as I got to view more picks thereafter, all the while eagerly awaiting the New York Giants pick. Once the Giants selected Prince Amukamara, a cornerback from the University of Nebraska, I headed downstairs to the media room for his press conference. What a great pick for my team, the Giants. One of Amukamara's comments was: "When I saw the 201 area code come up on my phone I knew it was the Giants calling." I sat alongside all of the media as they lobbed their question out to Prince. It was definitely one of the most interesting experiences of my life.
To top the night off I was interviewed by an ESPN writer who saw me slap hands with Cam Newton. He asked me what my connection to Cam was, and I told him my story about being a reporter for NFLRUSH.com. The next day the article was posted on ESPN's website. Words can't describe how great it felt to cover the 2011 NFL Draft for NFLRUSH.com.
The NFL rocks!
|"The players gave me good advice on how to stay active and fit."||Wow what a day! The best experience I have had in years! The NFL Play 60 Youth Football Festival started off with a clinic of drills and workouts with many different NFL Draft prospects. After the drills, we got to play a quick game of flag football.
The best part of all came when I was able to meet and interview the players. The players gave me good advice on how to stay active and fit. They also inspired me to continue to play football.
Von Miller told me "never give up always play football"! Ryan Kerrigan said "Play football every chance you get and don't eat fast food"!
I asked retired player Donovan Darius what I can do to be a good football player. His advice was "Do you like math? Do well in math, the game is all about the angles"!
It was an unbelievable day. I hope I am fortunate enough to experience this again in the future. It is every kid's dream to be out on the field competing with and interviewing professional football players.
Editor's Note: Check NFLRUSH.com later this week for Kyler's article from Night 1 of the 2011 NFL Draft.
|"He would be a huge asset to the Giants organization!"||If the Giants could get the first pick in the NFL Draft, I think they should choose Von Miller, Linebacker, Texas A&M. The Giants defense gave up too many points this past season. Miller won the Butkus Award as the nation's best linebacker with 10 1/2 sacks, 17 1/2 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles. He would be a huge asset to the Giants organization! He is a top ten pick!|
When it comes to football, there is no off season for me. I watch ESPN and keep myself updated on the Draft and all of the news that the NFL is reporting. Football is my passion. I love to play and I love to watch the Giants. I keep fit and PLAY 60. Weather I am outside throwing around the football or playing a game with my friends, I always try to keep active. I live really close to the beach. In the summer, I surf, board, and play football. I can't wait for the new season to begin! Football rocks!
There is no question to who will win Super Bowl XLV.... The Steelers! Ben Roethlisberger is flashing a pair of rings to prove what kind of team they are. Regardless of the situation, Big Ben will come up with the play that he needs to win the game. Rashard Mendenhall has a proven track record and will get things done for Ben also. Steelers have all sorts of players that can do multiple things on the field. Mike Tomlin will be ready to pull off anything! Packers will put up a great fight and it will be an awesome game but the Steelers will prevail!
The Steelers came out fighting! Rashard Mendenhall had a game high 121 rushing yards. Woodley had his dominating sack.
1: total rushing yards for the Jets the first half! Then the Jets began their comeback. If they played the first half like the second, they would be on their way to Texas. Instead, the Steelers take their 3rd trip to the Super Bowl in 6 years! They are the most successful Franchise with 6 Lombardi Trophies! Don't write off the Jets. They'll be back. Just wait and see. This was the best Conference Championship game.
"No one thought they could pull it off but what an amazing game."
The Jets sent the Pats' season to a screeching halt. What a game! The Jets lived up to all of the hype. No one thought they could pull it off but what an amazing game. The Jets defense terminated Brady and sacked him a season-high five times. This was the best divisional game of the weekend!
The best Playoff game this weekend will be the Jets vs. Colts. Primetime never looked so good! The "Brick" looks like he is at full preparation. Look out Colts! The Jets are looking for a rematch of last year's AFC Championship game! The Jets can win this game if they limit the Colts possessions and run the ball.
