Sean B. Fitzgerald states the reasons why he is excited for the 2009 NFL Season. From annoying quarterbacks to more annoying quarterbacks, the reasons run the gamut. So print it out, hop on the toilet and forget your worries. We’re only 9 days away. [...]
We’ll be doing our previews randomly over the next 32 days or so. Fifth up, the Broncos.
Last Season: 8-8, Second in AFC West.
What We Like: Eddie Royal was the most impressive rookie wide receiver in the NFL last season, picking up 91 receptions and 980 receiving yards. He did lose Jay Cutler, but he did gain Kyle Orton. That means more screens and divots that Royal has perfected as a 2nd year player. His 91 receptions could go up if Orton uses him as a safety valve instead of one his running backs.
We’ll be doing our previews randomly over the next 32 days or so. Fourth up, da Bears.
Last Season: 9-7, second in NFC North
What We Like: Adding a franchise quarterback will never hurt. Jay Cutler demanded a trade and he got one. His rocket arm is a solid attribute as is his willingness to take risks. Though, sometimes that is one of his weaknesses.
We’ll be doing our previews randomly over the next 32 days or so. Third up, the Cowboys.
Last Season: 9-7, third in the NFC East.

It was also interesting to see Barber’s touchdowns slip to seven despite having 10 and 14 in the two previous seasons. But again, we still like him.

Last Season: 0-16, last in the world.
What We Like: The Stud. Calvin Johnson is the second best wide receiver in the NFL and we think this guy is going to have a monster year. We’re talking 90 grabs for 1,700 yards and 15 TDs good. It wouldn’t surprise us if he surpassed Andre Johnson as the best in the league after this season.
We’ll be doing our previews randomly over the next 32 days or so. First up, the Browns.
Last Season: 4-12, last in NFC North.
What We Like: Well, we don’t hate Brady Quinn, and we expect him to nab the starting role by the time the pre-season roles around. We also don’t hate Derek Anderson, and we suspect he’d be good trade bait if Quinn panned out. Continue reading…
