Football Withdrawal

It's beginning to set it. You notice the drop sweat dripping down the side of your face, as a case of the shakes and spins are setting in. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, the seasons flashes before your eyes. 0-1, 0-2, 0-3, 0-4. No more! 0-5, 0-6, 0-7. Stop! I can't take it anymore. Gotta get some air. Wait a second. This isn't all that bad. There's no lockout this year. Free agency begins next month, followed by the draft. There's plenty to do to keep my addiction fulfilled. Wait, free agency starts in.... a month. Wh....What am I going to do until then?

Oh I know, I'll speculate and investigate. Rumor mill time. Headline "Peyton in Miami." I can see it now. Manning wearing his Lebron James jersey telling the press he is bringing his talents to South Beach as he winks. That's only the beginning. Marshall catches110 passes and tallies 10+ TDs. Davone Bess crowned as the best slot receiver in the game. Oh wait that's Welker. NOT! Without Brady, Welker was average (we should know). Without Welker, Brady was still amazing. Give us a franchise QB and let's see how our receivers fare.

Next, I will knock on wood as I say this, but I don't believe Bush repeats. Not because he isn't talented though. I believe he struggles to stay healthy. In comes Daniel Thomas as he shows us some more of what we saw in the beginning of the season.

Finally, these are my predictions for our record next year based on who our potential QB will be.


Manning (12-4) A healthy Manning combined with our roster warrants this record.

Moore (9-7) If Moore starts all season, I believe this is what our record would've been and will be next year as well.

Flynn (8-8) With so little known about Flynn, I thought 8-8 was fair.

RG3 (7-9) If we pull off RG3 and start him, he goes through typical rookie woes.

Phew, I made it. I'll be back writing some more the next time my withdrawals kick in.
