We Don’t Know Shit About Football!
So it occurred to me recently that we don’t know shit about the NFL. One of the first things I wrote this season was about how I detested preseason football. Nothing crazy there, in itself. I went on to mention that Victor Cruz was being hyped up like he was the second coming of Lynn Swan, when in reality none of my readers probably even knew who Victor Cruz was. Well, you probably know who Victor Cruz is now if you follow the NFL, have a pulse, or know anything about sports. To be fair, Victor Cruz didn’t do shit for a full season after the preseason in question, but the fact remains he’s an integral part of the NFC-Champion, New York Giants.
In another article, D-Brown blasted Eli Manning for saying that he was in the same class as Tom Brady. I’m sure, had I taken the time to reply, I would have piled on even dirtier than D-Brown did in the first place. But fastforward to the eve of the Super Bowl, and Eli Manning is going to be going head to head with none other than the spokesman for Ugg Boots, Tom Brady. Is Eli Manning in the same class as Tom Brady? If he’s not, I think he’s knocking on the door, and a Super Bowl victory would definitely put him over the edge.
Tim and time again, the NFL has proven itself to be unpredictable. Who would have thought the 49ers were a Kyle Williams boneheaded play away from possibly making it to the Super Bowl? Who would have thought the Packers would nearly go undefeated only to get escorted out of the playoffs early? Nobody. THAT is what makes the NFL truly great.
