Blog is Back

Hey everyone I am back to writing on my blog. This first article will not be as professional as what you have seen in the past because frankly I want to give you guys something to read. I'll be doing the usual short, sports articles. The typical random stuff that has caught my attention.


5 Teams That Should Start Panicking

1. Pittsburgh Steelers

-This one is obvious. 2-4 is not good, but workable. 2-5? Big time trouble. Look at it this way. The AFC is stacked. In the past couple of years, teams that were 10-6 missed out on the playoffs, but for the Steelers sake let's say a team gets in this year at 9-7. To even get in that situation Pittsburgh would need to win 7 out of their last 9. Sorry Cowher, I do not see a repeat happening...much less a playoff spot.

2. Arizona Cardinals

-As a Saints' fan you hate to see another struggling franchise like Arizona...well, continue to struggle. Ever since flat out choking against the Bears on Monday Night, the Cards have looked disgusting. That's right disgusting. The team is 1-7 right now. Dennis Green will be fired when the season is officially over. What a sorry end to a coach destined to turn the hapless Cards into winners.

3. Philadelphia Eagles

-Philly could easily have been 5-0 going into New Orleans a couple weeks ago, but the team had a late 4th quarter collapse against the Giants. Whatever the Eagles were 4-1 going into N.O. Not bad at all. 3 weeks later the Eagles are 4-4. Please someone tell me what the heck is going on in Philly? McNabb is losing that awesome play he has been showing for so much of the first half of the season. Coach Reid needs to get this team together before they miss the playoffs for the second straight year.

4. Tampa Bay Bucanneers

-Last year, Coach Gruden and Chris Simms had great success together. This year would only build on that. Wrong! Simms is out for the season with a ruptured splein. Rookie Bruce Gradowski had done well, but regardless he has shown those rookie mistakes here and there. Whatever the reason, Tampa is 2-5 with New Orleans coming into town. To make matters even worse the NFC South is not what you call ''easy.''

5. Miami Dolphins

-Nick Saban is in his second year as the Dolphin's head coach. Last year the team finished on an impressive 6 game winning streak. This year the Fins were suppose to be challenging the New England Patriots for the Division Title. I don't see that happening this year. Miami is 1-6. The one thing that sticks out this most is they don't have a QB.
