"A QB Driven League"
NFL Wk 1 "Late Slate" Take 1
#GeauxSaints @ #BirdGang
The New Orleans Saints go marching into Red Zone for a late afternoon tilt with the Arizona Cardinals. "Expectations" are high for both as the Saints and QB Drew Brees loses TE Jimmy Graham but Center Max Unger's Worth calling Protection Plays and Organizing that O-Line is priceless along with keeping Brees upright in the pocket. Can the Cards "D" get to Brees and shutdown 2nd year WR Brandin Cooks?
The Cards need to establish the run game as they cannot rely on QB Carson Palmer to carry the load. Scat back John Brown is a force to be reckon' with and the Saints need to slow him down. Bruce Arians wants go Vertical all the time and the Saints Secondary led by dynamic Safety Kenny Vaccaro will be ready!
Winner: Bird Gang 30-27
#RestoreTheRoar @ #BoltsUp
It cannot come down to both QB sin the Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford or San Diego Chargers Philip Rivers. This game will be won upfront as both teams D-Line is solid. Yes the Lions lost Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley and may not have Backer DeAndre Levy for this one but they still have some players. Can they get to Rivers and stop his RB by Committee?
The Chargers must take away not only "MEGAtron" WR Calvin Johnson but Golden Tate III as he has become Staff's Go-To by default and Tate can deliver with the best of them playing Calvin Johnson's Caddy. Will Lions TE Eric Ebron show up in year two and join "JUMBOtron" Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew to become Optimus Prime at TE for the Lions as two is better than one? Chargers Secondary calling you out!
Winner: Chargers 34-24
