The Everyday Mailbag- 8/9/11
The NFL Preseason is revving up and just like the preseason, the mailbag is pushing the pedal to the medal. Let’s see what the sports world wants to know!!!!
Q: Among the Cowboys, Giants or Redskins who has the better chance of making it to the playoffs?
-Aaron J., Washington, DC
A: Among those three, I would say the Cowboys have the best chance to make the playoffs. They are still more talented than the Redskins and Giants despite the cuts.
Q: What will the Redskins really do at QB?
-Joey K., Los Angeles, CA
A: They will go with either Beck or Grossman. I don’t know if Clemmons comes into the conversation this year because of a lack of off-season workouts.
Q: Will Tim Tebow become the starter for the Broncos?
-Dallas S., Mabhattan, NY
A: I think Tebow will eventually become the starter. Its not a matter of will he, its a matter of what game and what season he will become the starter. The Broncos have to find out what they have or don’t have in him, so I expect him to become the starter at some point.
Q: The Patriots have had many players out of practice lately because of injuries. Could this become a league wide epidemic?
-Russ G., Walpole, MA
A: Because of the lack of an off-season, injuries could become an epidemic. The reason being is there were no trainers to monitor the players during their off-season training and therefore, no one to make sure they did the proper things to keep themselves in tip-top shape.
Q: How do you think the University of Georgia will do this year?
-Jason J. Memphis, TN
A: I think the Bulldogs could finish anywhere from 1st to 3rd in the SEC East. I would say that they will win probably around 8 or 9 games. I don’t see them winning the SEC though. LSU or Alabama will be winning the SEC.
Q: How do you feel the Florida State Seminoles will do this year?
-Quinton T., Murfreesboro, TN
A: It all depends on EJ Manuel. If he plays great, they will be pretty tough. If he doesn’t play great, 8, maybe 9 wins this year.
Q: Will the Raiders Sign a WR or a CB?
-Joey K., Los Angeles, CA
A: The Raiders may sign another CB because of depth concerns. No proven depth always means more moves are to be made.
Q: Will the Detroit Lions improve enough to become a playoff contender this year?
-Jeremy W., Winnipeg, Canada
A: I think the Lions are one year away from being a playoff contender. They still have to get better defensively at the LB position and at the S position on defense and the questions still linger about QB Matthew Stafford and his ability to stay healthy.
Q: Where will Tiki Barber sign? Detroit possibly?
-Ken L., Newton, IA
A: I don’t think Tiki makes it back to the NFL. I think that there are far cheaper RBs available that are younger than him. I don’t think Detroit wants to bring him up there.
