2007 Sports As Life NFL Preview Review

Ok, here it is - the last look forward at the upcoming NFL season, at least until I start picking games next week. I need a 3 day break from writing about this sport.

Anyway, here is a list of winners and losers you can expect in the NFL season:

Super Bowl Matchup: New England vs. Dallas
Super Bowl Champs: New England (now how's that for a reverse jinx)
Super Bowl MVP: Asante Samuel, CB - New England

League MVP: Tom Brady, QB - New England
Offensive Player of the Year: Anquan Boldin, WR - Arizona
Defensive Player of the Year: DeMarcus Ware, LB - Dallas
Offensive Rookie of the Year: Adrian Peterson, RB - Minnesota (I know there's a lot of talk about Marshawn Lynch in Buffalo right now, but I'm sticking with Peterson)
Defensive Rookie of the Year: Patrick Willis, LB - San Francisco (After playing half of a season with the 49ers in Madden '08 I don't see how Willis doesn't win this award)
Comeback Player of the Year: Donovan F. McNabb, QB - Philadelphia
Coach of the Year: Mike Nolan - San Francisco (Sexy sleeper pick: Ken Wisenhunt - Arizona)

First Coach to Lose His Job: Tom Coughlin - New York Giants (Out of left field sleeper pick: Jon Gruden - Tampa Bay)
Biggest First Round Draft Bust: Ted Ginn Jr., WR - Miami Dolphins (Honourable mention: JaMarcus Russell, QB - Oakland Raiders?)

Most Commercials by a Current NFL Star: Peyton Manning, 47
Most Commercials by a Former NFL Star: Tiki Barber, 62

Phil Simms Versus the English Language: the epic struggle continues


Ok - that's it, if you're not ready for the NFL season now, you never will be.

I'm going with San Diego and Dallas for superbowl.... Dallas wins

Comeback player... I'm giving it to Cadiallac williams though mcnabb will put in a good 13 games before injuries.

Defensive Rookie -- never played madden but from what i've read and heard from the fantasy communities -- he should get it

Biggest Bust -- Calvin Johnson... why else would the lions pick him they enjoy the drafting then trading away of #1 wr's. I don't think this will be the case but still throwing it out there.

Coach to lose his job -- there's so many to chose from couglin may be given leway considering what he's got. My choice would be Lovie Smith (his man crush on sexy rexy will get him in trouble) and other choice would be john fox.

coach of the year -- Cam cameron though mike nolan will be close



First draft is tomorrow in an espn league.... let the countless hours of sorting through transactions and injury reports instead of doing work begin.....
