Are You Ready for Some Football?

“No” would be the answer if your name is Knowshon Moreno or Robert Ayers. They are the two first-round picks of the Denver Broncos and they are not in training camp because they have yet to sign contracts with the team.

The Broncos are my NFL team and I am not happy with the off-season they have had. After firing Mike Shanahan, who led the team to two Super Bowl victories in the late 90s, they hired 33-year old offensive coordinator from the Patriots, Josh McDaniels, to replace him. Since taking the reigns, McDaniels has traded our All-Pro quarterback (Jay Cutler), alienated our best wide-receiver, and drafted a slew of offensive players when the team was most in need of help on the defensive side of the ball. The McDaniels era is not off to a good start, in my opinion, and the Broncos are not expected to do well this year.

And if you are thinking it is too early for football news, I would simply say that both the NFL preseason and college football regular season start in August. “Worthless Weekends” return in a few weeks, much to the dismay of wives and girlfriends everywhere.

Update: I was wrong about the college football season starting in August; the first games are actually on Thursday, September 3rd. Even so, the season is just around the corner…
