After a long season that started out with me going to Heinz field for the first pre season game against the Cardinals and ending with a win against the Miami Dolphins (sorry Mark Thompson if you are out there) I’ll be rooting for the Saints and the Colts to reach the Superbowl.
The Saints have my eye because of the several years I spent there in the mid 1990’s getting my master’s degree and the Colts due to my friend Danny Geduldig.
It was a very weird season to say the least – The Titans started out 0-6 and them made a season of it, only to fall a little short at the end. The Broncos started strong but fell apart after the Steelers beat them. Oh yeah – the Steelers – ahem – lost to Chicago, KC, Oakland, and at the time the lowly Cleveland Brownies – but beat the undefeated Broncos and Vikings. The Steelers just didn’t have the knockout punch that they have had to keep opponents out of the endzone in the fourth quarter like they have in years past. So we go on to next year.
We’ll see what it brings in training camp this year. Hopefully, Tomlin will step it up this year and get the guys playing with their hearts instead of their egos.
