NFL trends to watch

Posted: August 24, 2009 in football, NFL, sports opinion
As much as Stank-0 believes in Matt Cassel, there’s other signal callers to keep an eye on. 

  • At the top of the list is Jay CutlerHis game against the Giants is a gem. 
  • Even though Stank-0 is way past tired, Brett Favre’s tenure with the Vikes bears some monitoring.  The Vikings are a few pieces away from contention, namely quarterback.  Let Stank-0 say this, he’s not sold on Favre.  He’s on the downside of his career.  The Vikings are poised right now to make some noise.  Can he cut it? 
  • Will Tom Brady be mentally ready to play? 
  • Sophomore seasons for Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan, slump or continued ascent?  Matt gets a new toy (T.Gon) while Flacco loses D.Ma$e to retirement. 
  • Does Eli Manning need Plax more than Plax needs Eli?  The Giants record with Plax: 9-1, without: 3-3.   
  • Was Matt Cassel’s season last year an aberration or a sign of things to come? 
  • Can Phillip Rivers break through and get to the Super Bowl?   
  • McNabb asking for Vick to come to PHI.  McNabb hasn’t played a full season in a minute.  Vick will be under center this season. 
  • Will the Super Bowl curse fell Warner

That’s just the quarterbacks.  The division to watch this season is clearly the NFC North.  Next would be NFC East.  Stank-0 can’t think of any division outside of those two that are as stacked. 

Anyone or division you feel warrants mention?
