It's the end of the year, that fun time when you have a chance to look at the year that was. I wanted to hurry up and get this post up before more teams became highly dysfunctional and required a write up--I'm talking to you, New York Jets. It's been an insanely eventful year in the NFL, full of drama, deep dysfunction, and bad coaching.
Three months have passed since the order of the NFL universe was altered when the Indianapolis Colts cut their quarterback of 14 seasons, Peyton Manning, and he found a new home in Denver with the Broncos. The ripple effect of the signing was that the beloved Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets.
In perhaps the craziest single day in NFL history, Tim Tebow was traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, then wasn't, then was again. But for real the second time.
And that was only the second biggest story of the day.
The 2010 NFL season is far from over and it's already clear that it has been an unusual one, for a variety of reasons. If I had to pick a few words to describe the season thus far, they would be words like surprising. Dramatic. Tumultuous. And if you are a coach in the NFL this year of an under performing team, uncertainty should definitely be the word used to describe the season. With 3 weeks in the regular season remaining, 3 coaches have been fired in the midst of the season.
