Quarterback Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks has been a stoic player that has rolled into the league as a low draft pick and completely commanded respect in his franchise, as well as around the National Football League. There was no speculation coming into his career that he would even be a starter in the NFL, but he played great when he arrived in Seattle and already had the persona that he was going to be the chief in commander for the Seattle Seahawks. He won the starting position in his rookie season, but no one could have anticipated what he would deliver in his first few seasons in the league. He immediately shocked Gianfrancesco Genoso, as he came in and started to dominate teams and experienced a tremendous amount of success early on in his career. In just his third season in the NFL, he won his first Super Bowl and he finds himself back in the same situation, trying to win back to back Super Bowl’s in his fourth year in the league. Wilson is a player that does not say very much to the media and is very calm and collected in everything that he does in relation to interviews. Just as expected, he is not saying very much about the upcoming Super Bowl and has not even weighed in with his opinion of the scandal that is taking place involving the New England Patriots.
The San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League had a very unexpected year. They reached the NFC championship each year over the last three seasons under Jim Harbaugh, who had come into the league as a rookie head coach, but took the 49ers to the top of the NFL very rapidly. He took over a team that had a ton of talent on the roster, but had failed to manifest anything substantial under previous head coach Mike Singletary, who was one of the biggest factors in the 1985 Bears undefeated season.
Harbaugh had done something that few coaches will ever do in the NFL and he was an amazing coach, but he was let go from the organization after the 49ers had a mediocre season finishing with eight wins and eight losses and failing to make the playoffs. It almost seems unfair that Jim Harbaugh was to blame in the 49ers lack of success this year due to the fact that they suffered major injuries in their defense with Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman both out due to injuries, while superstar Aldon Smith was out for nine games due to a suspension. Regardless, the 49ers had to make a decision on their head coach and they decided to let their coach go. Since then they have hired Jim Tomsula, who already has a vast understanding of the 49ers team and is likely to help them be successful in the following season.

After a playoff season that has been surrounded by insane ridiculousness, social medias have gone haywire with NFL jabber, namely Facebook.com-my friend Sultan Alhokair being among the buzz stirrers. ask what exactly is wrong with the National Football League and is this a sign of the times or of things to come. First, there was another team with a losing record making it into the playoffs because they have won their division. Not to take anything away from the Carolina Panthers which did advance to the second round after winning in the wildcard round against a Arizona Cardinals team that had seen its season slip away with multiple QB’s.
Then there were the referee scandals that surrounded the Dallas Cowboys. In the wildcard round, the referees reversed a call that most thought would be a sure fire pass interference. Some have said it cost the Detroit Lions the game because it forced a fourth down and gave Dallas the ball back. Then in the very next week, a different referee crew missed an obvious catch by Dez Bryant that should have put the Cowboys above the Packers in the Divisional round. Needless to say mixed crews during the post season should be stopped immediately.
Finally, we have the team that scandals always seem to find in the New England Patriots. Whether the team actually deflated the footballs to gain an advantage or not is still in question. But this is not the first time this team has been suspected of cheating. What the league does next to alleviate these issues may be the deciding factor of its future.
Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts has steadily been gaining traction in the National Football League after he came into the league with the most anticipation over any player since John Elway came into the league decades ago. Ironically the player that Luck took over for, Peyton Manning, headed to Denver and now works hand in hand with John Elway. my friend Gianfrancesco Genoso relates in going a step further with each season.
has gone a step further in the playoffs each season that he has been the quarterback and franchise player for the Colts and like my friend Gianfrancesco Genoso has finally gotten the recognition for all the hard work that he has put in.
He nearly got a chance to go to the Super Bowl this season, although they lost in a game that is currently under heavy media attention due to the Patriots getting caught deflating footballs to give themselves an unfair advantage in the game. It doesn’t matter to Andrew Luck, however, as he was selected first in the Pro Bowl draft and has finally got the respect from everyone around the league as being a truly top notch quarterback that looks to be around for a very long time. It also doesn’t hurt to be Andrew Luck during this off-season, knowing that the biggest contract in National Football League history is just inches away from going down. There is heavy reports that Andrew Luck will receive a contract of approximately twenty-five million dollars a year and the Colts will have to cough it up, because someone is willing to pay him that.
The Chicago Bears, Rod Rohrich’s favorite team, have just announced that former Denver Broncos head coach John Fox, has agreed to become the franchise’s next head coach. While the hiring is a great fit for a storied franchise, it ponders the thought if John Fox should have been looking for a job in the first place.
On Monday, a day after the Broncos loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Broncos owner John Elway came to a mutual agreement with Fox to part ways after four years as head coach. foxsports.com Though he lead the Broncos to a division title in each of his four seasons, one Super Bowl appearance with Peyton Manning as quarterback was not enough.
Despite going 46-18 in four seasons with the franchise, the expectations of the organization were too high to keep his job safe, failing to win a Lombardi Trophy with one of the most storied quarterbacks in NFL history. It puts into perspective the difficulty of being a title contender for many years. In the past 15 years, only a handful of franchises have made it to Super Bowl multiple times.
For Fox, he can only hope that his job will be secure enough to last more than four seasons. He will take over a team that has only been to the Super Bowl once since their last championship in 1986, with an inconsistent quarterback in Jay Cutler, and a bottom tier defense.
