Ah yes the sweet sounds of summer and the crack of the bat andthe boat in the water, has everyone in just a fine mood and moreimportantly the NFL is right around the corner!
The preseason kicks off August 6th and with a plethora of baseballaction and barbecues, it will be here before you know it, as unfortunatelythe summer just flies by.
In Pittsburgh Bill Cowher enters his 14th season as the headcoach and that is the longest tenure of anyone in the league andhe is in know mood to talk about last season. If you recall theSteelers were 6-10 in 2003 but bounced back this past season withan incredible 15-1 season, fueled by the play of rookie quarterbackBen Roethlisberger.
He is 130-77 in his career with 8 divisional titles, but heis still searching for that Holy Grail the Super Bowl. The Steelersloss in the AFC Championship was their fourth in five tries andCowher is in no mood to talk about their perceived success in2004!
In Green Bay the clock is ticking on Mike Sherman who was relievedof his front office personnel power in favor of Ted Thompson andhas been asked to focus on coaching. He has an aging quarterbackin Brett Farve an obviously troubled running back in Ahman Greenand has loss 40% of his starting offensive line in Marco Riveraand Mike Wahle. His defense is void of a pass rush and has lostquarterback of the defense Darren Sharper to Seattle and formercoach Mike Holmgren.
In San Francisco look for number one draft pick Alex Smith tohave a real rocky ride, as the 49ers will start two rookies onthe offensive line. Add to this the fact that they have a newcoach in Mike Nolan and this could be another long season in theBay area.
Over the next few months we are going to continue to keep youup to date at Sportingbet USA – now SuperBook.com – on all the developments in the NFLand we look forward to a great season of wagering in 2005!
