Okay, whoa. Whoa whoa whoa. Where are you going? Don’t leave. Not rooting for them more than your own favorite teams. That’s not what I mean. Not even rooting for them to win championships. But rooting for them to be good. Rooting for them to be legitimate contenders.
Ask me on a Friday what story I covered on the Monday of the same week and most weeks I’d have to flip open the pages of my reporter’s notebook to answer you. But some stories stick.
The organization has begun to compile its final evaluations and, for the purposes of this blog, we will not break down the season finale, but rather will identify this season’s game balls and gassers.

You laugh now, but there was a time, very recently, when it was a debate. There was a time, when we thought the kid had commandeered the throne. There was a time when, when we thought it was the dawn of one empire, and the dusk of another.
Offensively, the New York Giants and Denver Broncos put up stellar statistics in their season openers last week. But in the stat that really counts, the Broncos have a 1-0 record, and the Giants are seeking their first victory in the 2013 NFL season.
