But Today my Kool-Aid drinking friends.... we are here to award the OFF-SEASON SUPERBOWL TROPHY!!!
The candidates open for the bid include:
the Buccaneers: what they did in the draft alone was enough for them to be here. they got Gerald McCoy, Brian Price, as 2 of the best 3 DT's of the draft... along with two great receivers of which were named: Arrelious Benn, and Mike Williams. That alone tells me that they are starting to care about what other teams think of them...
Next up are the Miami Dolphins: The dolphins went three ways, the draft, free-agency, and trade-pools. Now through trade they got Brandon Marshall who is a big, tough, tall receiver who can really catch the ball even when triple-covered. In free-agency they got Karlos Dansby, who is a great instinctive linebacker who is good enough to stay for another 8 years before deciding to hang 'em up and who while knowing the game VERY well, he still has many years to play. Now... the draft. Through the draft they acquired a great 3-4 DT in Jared Odrick, a great 3-4 OLB in Koa Misi (pass-rush specialist), a good developmental OT in John Jerry, and a good safety in Reshad Jones.
Now, the Ravens: AnQuan, AnQuan, AnQuan, Boldin, Boldin, Boldin... this guy is the very essence of tough receivers as the NFL knows them today. This big guy was acquired through trade with the Cardinals (who i didnt think did too great this off-season) and got a great deal. Free-agency they got Donte Stallworth, and Shaun Cody. Both are expected to make impacts in their respective roles but i dont expect them to see the field more than 5 minutes a game. And through the draft they got Terrence Cody, HUUUUUUUUGE!! Do i need to say anymore? and also in the second they nabbed 3-4 OLB Sergio Kindle. The really hit it big in the draft with defense and even secured it to the point where i have them as #7 on overall defense.
You all know enough about our own lions... if you were wondering why i left them out of this discussion it's because you are kool-aid addicts with nothing better to do than go on PoD... you guys could of run the Lions better than Marinelli could've... jeeeez!
