The NFL is always trying to be balanced and have teams that can compete with one another. Well, that was so close to the truth and so far away from it, all in the same weekend.
Even though the start of the 2013 NFL season is supposed to be about good times, excitement and thrills; there is still a lot of controversy at the base of everything. That includes spilling a lot of secrets and being in the wrong places at the wrong times.
The Chicago Bears signed D.J. Williams to replace Brian Urlacher at middle linebacker this season. Williams, a nine-year veteran, has been a highly productive player since being taken in the first round of the 2004 draft.
Coaches are allowed to change their minds, right?
Lots going on in the NFL as the season winds to a close, and not all of it has to do with the playoffs. No matter how long you’ve been around the NFL, it’s always hard to understand a home crowd booing their own team.
Getting into the NFL playoffs is hard enough a task in itself. Getting into the playoffs with injuries to multiple big-star talent makes it even harder.
A team reunites with a former player, the Bears lose another big name, one Pittsburgh Steeler is shut down for a game, and a sad day goes on in Dallas.
Injuries can cause an NFL team’s entire season to go down in flames. Sometimes, it is better if they happen early in the year because recoveries or replacements are possible. Injuries happening just before the playoffs though can cause a team to go straight into panic mode.
Mike Ditka and Jim Harbaugh had to face battles off of the field this week, and they’ve both won.
Sometimes even the slower news days in the NFL don’t really end up that slow at all.
