Here are a group of links that are about things that I wanted to write about (but didn’t have time to or the person who wrote the other one did a better job than I would have) or were things I came across that I thought were interesting enough to share with all of the WaB readers. (more…)
For those of you that realize the first game of the 2009 NFL season is less than 48 hours away from kicking off you will probably be wondering how I expect to be able to finish the rest of these division previews. I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t a good question but I think I can pull it off. The game on Thursday is between the Titans and Steelers, so by doing the AFC South today and the AFC North tomorrow I’ll have those teams out of the way. On Thursday I will likely do two, those being the AFC East and the NFC North. On Friday I will again do two, the NFC South and the NFC East. Saturday brings UCLA to Knoxville to face my Volunteers and I highly doubt that I’ll be posting anything that day. So on Sunday morning and early afternoon I will churn out the NFC West, because all of the NFC West teams kickoff at 4:15 ET on Sunday. So if I actually manage to pull this off, that’s how it’s going to happen.
On to the AFC South. This is the division I know the most about because this is the division that contains my Colts but I’m going to try to keep this one shorter (yeah right) than my 1400-word AFC West post. The teams in the AFC South this year will be facing the AFC East and the NFC West. This should provide for some interesting matchups, the most intriguing of which is the always anticipated Colts vs cheaters patriots game, which takes place this year on November 15 in Indianapolis.

The rumors had been flying around for a while now about Tom Moore and Howard Mudd retiring, the Colts Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach respectively. Today those rumors became official when Jim Irsay, the Colts owner, stated that Moore and Mudd had formally filed their retirement papers. The two decided to retire earlier than they had wanted to because of a recent change in the NFL’s pension plan. Together Moore and Mudd combine for nearly 70 years of NFL coaching experience. (more…)
