Let's see how much interest there is in an a.net 2012 NFL Thread!
We had an early kickoff to the season with DAL vs NYG. We had some folks trash talking the Cowboy's inability to find the end zone, but when push came to shove they did, and their defense shut down the inevitable Eli Manning comeback attempt with great play by their new corners.
As for my interests, I think the Patriots are set up for another great season. The defense has gotten younger, faster and has two first round draft choices starting (Chander Jones on the line and Donte Hightower at linebacker). Still, the backfield is a concern - Belichick notoriously doesn't like spending money on DBs. As for offense, they've added Brandon Lloyd, a return of Josh McDaniels as offensive coordinator and have signed almost every tight end in the league! They didn't try to sign Law Firm too aggressively and he went elsewhere, and they are relying on Ridley and Vreen to try to put together something at RB, another area Belichick doesn't seem to do well with. The other concern is the offensive line where retirements and injuries have decimated the core that they've had over the last few seasons. All in all, I see another top-notch season for the Pats, with 12 regular season wins, especially given their kind schedule.
What about your interests?
