Ramblers be Rambling

It has been too long since I’ve been on here doing my rambling. So here goes!

Football season is officially here again! How great is that? Even though the Super Bowl champs were able to defend their title against the NFC Champion Panthers, it is still going to be a tough season for the Broncos. They have an inexperienced QB. But they still have the most ferocious defense in the league. Top that with having a 100+ reception receiver two years in a row and a healthy CJ Anderson and that gives them a legitimate shot at returning to the Super Bowl.

The New England Patriots came into the Arizona desert without their stud QB, TE and DE. But not to worry, they still had Belichick steering the ship. With his dink and dunk offense, they were able to convert on 10 of 16 3rd downs. What an absurd stat!!

It took the Cardinals offense a long time to wake up! The receivers and Carson Palmer were not on the same page for the entire first half. Was it the lack of playing time in the preseason? Was it a lack of focus? Either way, it was ugly! They finally got back to playing BA style ball in the second half and even had a chance to win the game with a last minute field goal, but it sailed wide left. Leaving 60,000+ fans in complete despair.
