To play Backups or Not to play Backups.

(click on "Coughlin & Dungy" image for video)
Football is a rough sport. Injuries occur in every game. What would a coach do when you have to play a regular season game where you have nothing to gain and afterwards, you have to play in the playoffs?.

It doesn’t matter how perfect your regular season record is in the playoffs. In the playoffs, everyone has a fresh start with the same chance to win the Superbowl. The Superbowl is the reward for a season’s worth of hardships. The prize that tells everyone that you’re the best team in the NFL.

What would a Professional Head Coach do? Play your backups of course.

Randy Moss versus Jerry Rice’s 22 touchdown receptions record

(click "Rice vs. Moss" image on right to see NFL highlight video)
Randy Moss has 21 touchdown receptions this season. Moss is 2 receptions away from breaking Jerry Rice’s record of 22 touchdown receptions in a regular season.

Why has Moss been so spectacular in NFL 2007? Tom Brady. That’s why. Brady is an extremely accurate quarterback. He is known for quick passes to tight spots. Brady is the best quarterback that Moss has ever caught for.

But there is a problem with Moss’s abilities. Moss does well in the first half of the season but his performance diminishes at the end of the season. That happened when he played for the Vikings and the Raiders. Maybe he gets bored or tired. Who knows?

Moss is now having receiving problems because he is being double and triple covered by defenses. Also, Brady has become impatient and constantly throws the deep pass, which is a low percentage pass, to Moss. Brady needs to be more patient and throw to other receivers such as Stallworth, Welker, Brown, Gaffney or the Tight Ends to keep the defense off balance and set up shorter touchdown passes to Moss.

The Giants will likely play their backups so the defense will be weaker than usual. Moss has a very high chance of breaking the touchdown receptions record. Only if he has the will to do it.

Will the Giants versus Patriots game be more popular than the Superbowl?

(click on "Belichick" image for video)

Originally, the New York Giants versus New England Patriots game was to be broadcast on ABC and NFL network. But the NFL announced yesterday that the game will also be simulcast on both CBS and NBC. Therefore almost every public channel will show the game. That means the historic "goal of perfection" New England Patriots game will be broadcast with more viewership than the Superbowl. It is like the presidential "State of the Union" address. Do you think this game will have more viewer ratings than the 2007 Superbowl?

Titans versus Colts: the only other game worth watching

(click "Titans vs Colts" image for video)
It's the end of the NFL season. Unless you're a dedicated team fan, most of the NFL games are not worth watching. Other than the popular New York Giants versus New England Patriots game, the other game worth watching is the Tennessee Titans versus Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, 12-30-2007 @ 8:15pm EST.

Usually you would expect the Colts to stampede over the Titans. But this is the last game before playoffs. For the Tennessee Titans, this is a live or die situation. If the Titans win, they go to the playoffs as a wildcard. If the Titans lose, the Cleveland Browns go to the playoffs as a wildcard. The Colts have clinched home field advantage and a bye week in the playoffs so they have nothing to gain. The Colts will likely play their backups against the Titans. The questions are whether the Titans' starters are better than the Colts' backups or the Colts would rather see the Browns in the playoffs and actually play to win the game.

Giants vs. Patriots: A must see for Die Hard NFL fans

(click on "E. Manning vs Brady" image for video)
So what if the New York Giants have nothing to gain from this game. So what if the Giants will likely not play their starters because they have no bye week in the playoffs. So what if the NFL wants fans to pay to watch this game on their NFL network channel. So what if the Giants coach, Tom Coughlin, got his stardom as the head coach of the Boston College Eagles, so he's likely to take it easy on New England. So what if the only incentive for the Giants to play is Eli Manning defending his big brother, Peyton Manning's honor.

Die Hard NFL fans, this game will change NFL history. The game that shows the impossible is possible. The perfect 16 win record breaking game. And on top of that, you get a free bonus of Tom Brady breaking the 49 passing touchdown record.

Paint yourselves red, white, and blue, because that's the team colors for both teams. But put a Patriots logo somewhere on your body because it's a moment in your life that you will never forget. Tell your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, relatives, friends, and pets. For some of you, tell them how you toiled to get cable or satellite TV by the Saturday deadline to watch the game on 12-29-2007 at 8:15pm EST. No matter what team you rooted for in the past, you're allowed to root for the Patriots for this historic game.

NFL 2007: Year of the SuperPatriots

Look. It's a bird. It's a plane. It's the SuperPatriots. At the 2006 playoffs, the San Diego Chargers said that they would beat the Patriots on their way to the Superbowl. After the Chargers were defeated 24 to 21, the Patriots made a weeping Tomilson and the Chargers eat their words.

In game 2 of the 2007 NFL season, the Chargers met the Patriots again. The Patriots were upgraded with Moss, Welker, Stallworth and a healthy Seau and Harrison. But this time the Chargers were silent because they knew what the Patriots can do. Again the Chargers were defeated with a score of 38 to 14. In Game 6 of 2007, the Dallas Cowboys and Owens said that they will beat the Patriots and that the Cowboys will be the only undefeated team in the NFL. Yet the Patriots beat the Cowboys 48 to 27. A humiliated Owens still said that the Patriots were not that good. In Game 8, the Patriots blew out the Redskins with a score of 52 to 7. The ashamed Redskins asked the world why the Patriots had to beat them so bad. In Game 9 of 2007, the only 2 undefeated NFL teams met. The silent Colts had played against the Patriots numerous times and knew what the Patriots were capable of. The Patriots beat the Colts 24 to 20 and were now the only undefeated team in the NFL. In Game 12 of 2007, the Baltimore Ravens said they would give the Patriots their first loss of the season. Yet the Patriots beat the Ravens 27 to 24. In Game 13 of 2007, the Pittsburgh Steelers said that they had been waiting all season to end the Patriot's winning streak and that they knew how to win against the Patriots. Yet the Patriots beat the Steelers 34 to 13.

The undefeated Patriots with 15 wins has broken the regular season winning record of 14 wins by the 1972 Miami Dolphins. Opponent's fans had rooted against the Patriots all season. Yet only one game stands in the way of the New England Patriot's perfect regular NFL season. Who are these men that make their opponents weep? They're not mere men. I saw the Supermen win again last Sunday.

Will Tom Brady break Peyton Manning's 49 Touchdowns in a season record?

(click on "Tom Brady" image to see Brady highlights)
Tom Brady threw his 48th passing touchdown on Sunday 12-23-2007 against the Miami Dolphins. It is more than likely that Brady will pass Peyton Manning's 49 regular season passing touchdown record in next week's game against the New York Giants. With the talented receivers that the New England Patriots have, Brady has plenty of targets to break the record with. Brady already has 3 superbowl rings. Will Brady break the season touchdown record? Do you think Tom Brady is the best quarterback in NFL history?
