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.
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.
The Good: The Buffalo Bills finally got their first win of the season! My sports fandom at times is complicated by the fact that I have a tender heart. I generally give absolutely no thought or care to the Buffalo Bills, but hearing that they have no wins in week 7, then week 8, then week 9 of the NFL season--it made me feel sad for the team. And their fans. Today, the Bills eeked out a win over the Detroit Lions, scoring the W with a 14-12 win.
No, this post isn't about this fall's mid-term elections. It's about the subject of my previous blog topic, Mr. Brett Favre. The hot mess-ness continued yesterday, after he decided he had enough of being a lazy oaf in Mississippi and showed up at training camp for the Minnesota Vikings. Just in time for it to be over. He also chose to finally address his intentions for the season. The ridiculously indecisive quarterback said that he will return to the Minnesota Vikings for his 20th, and so he says, final, NFL season.
