DA BEARS!!!

 

The First Quarter of the 2012 NFL season is complete, and not without some interesting occurences. Some teams have already experienced big injuries, others are already looking at making major changes, and some are stuck in the same rut that they were in last season.

WHAT I THINK I LEARNED FROM THE NFL THIS WEEk is quite simple: EVERYTHING IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS.

EVERYTHING IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS:

* The 49ers suffered one (surprising) loss in Week 3, and many of their fair-weather followers jumped ship. Sunday, against the Jets, San Fran showed that they are still the most complete team in the league.

* After all the hype around QB Russell Wilson, and stellar performances by the Seahawks “D”, we were starting to become “believers”. Sunday they made sure to erase all those good vibes we had about them.

* After narrowly escaping 11 turnovers in 3 games with a 2-1 start, many were sure that the Philadelphia Eagles was headed in the wrong direction. Their Sunday Night performance showed how dangerous they can be when disciplined.

* Half-manned in Week 3, the Giants showed how versatile and deep they are as a team. EVERYTHING IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS. This team is just as “wishy-washy” as they always are.

* We thought Dallas was bad. They’re worse!

* Even in defeat, the New Orleans Saints are much better than they seem. One missed field goal is the only thing that kept them from getting into the win column. This team is nowhere near as bad as a 0-4 start.

*QB Cam Newton is not Superman. Nor can he win games off of his talent alone.

* In 2011, it seemed that Detroit was headed in the right direction. EVERYTHING IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS.

* We’ve discussed QB Jay Cuter’s attitude. We’ve discussed the Bears’ faltering offense. What we haven’t discussed is that this team is pretty good, and well-rounded when they buckle down and play football.

* EVERYTHING IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS: The Minnesota Vikings are not going to lay down and be the NFC North punching bag this season.

* I don’t care how vulnerable they look at times, New England can beat any team in this league.

* If you are a Jets fan, Mark Sanchez is not the answer. And Tim Tebow should not even be a consideration.

* Right now, it may SEEM like Denver isn’t one of the top teams in this league, but EVERYTHING IS NOT…..you get the point. They more this team figures themselves out, the more dangerous they will become.

* As much as it seems like San Diego will one day take over their weak division and play good football, it will never happen. They are too comfortable with surviving by the skin of their teeth.
