Sunday's NFL Recap

Sunday’s games showed me a couple of things.

First, after a blowout loss at home to the Ravens it looks like the Patriots are on the backend of their legacy. I have to say, it was a fun ride. The Patriots highlights include 3 Super Bowl wins in 4 appearances over a 7-year time frame. Going 18-1 in the 2007 season and lets not forget the rising of a backup QB named Tom Brady.

Second, Aaron Rodgers has proven to be a serious, and viable, replacement to Brett Farve. I expect to see the Packers making regular appearances in the Playoffs over the next decade. In his first two seasons as starter he has put up over 4,000-yds each season, plus he has already thrown 58 TDs to only 20 INTs, a nearly 3-1 ratio. Unfortunately since a lot was expected of him from Day 1 his card prices have been sitting high for a while.

Third, Early Doucet may turn out to be an exceptional NFL Wide Receiver if he is given the opportunity; unfortunately the Cardinals are pretty well stocked at WR with Fitzgerald, Boldin and Breaston all pretty well cemented at the position. It might not be a bad idea to grab up a couple of Doucet cards before he becomes a regular on the field and the prices sky rocket.

Forth, the Cardinals and Packers apparently do not have a defense, at least not for this game. It does seem fitting though that the game began and ended on a defensive turnover, unfortunately for the Packers both were turned by the Big Red D. How insane is it to have 96 points scored and well over 1,000 yards in a game?
