Just a few days after the knee injury scare, Brady lit up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Pats didn’t seem to miss Gronk, Welker, or Hernandez at all last week as Danny Amendola had a huge night. Let’s see what happens during the season, but the new emphasis on the run sure helps.
First was Seattle’s Percy Harvin being knocked out for the majority of the season, and this week it happened to the Dolphins and Dustin Keller. It really hurts that you may get nothing from these guys at all in their first season. Especially for Keller who is done after a questionable shot by rookie D.J. Swearinger.
I am far from sold on Jackson being a huge factor for the Falcons. I do not see him being the Jackson of old or a fantasy stud this season. Will he be an upgrade from Michael Turner? Not so sure on that either.
Suspensions are now becoming pretty common for both banned substances and PEDs as the commissioner is cracking. And it doesn’t look like Miller has much of any chance in an appeal. I guess his excuse isn’t as solid as the BS that Richard Sherman had. Just my thoughts on that one.
It is really not surprise that the Jags are giving Gabbert the chance to be what they hoped taking him high in the first round. I remember San Francisco was contemplating moving on from Alex Smith a few seasons ago but stuck with him. Yes, they did eventually trade away Smith. But sticking with him a few seasons ago enabled the Niners to get solid return from the Chiefs last winter.
