4 Teams To Watch For This Upcoming NFL Season

Obviously not those who were in the conference championships last year. I believe, with the exception of the Jets, we could be ready to watch the Colts, Saints, and Vikings repeat their runs.

The team that should strike the most fear into everyone is the Baltimore Ravens. They've revamped their defense, giving the linebackers incredible bulk in front of them, which should create more space for possibly the most dangerous blitzing football team in the history of the league. Anquan Boldin's addition and Ray Rice's maturity also provide the comfort Baltimore has been looking for, and should make the offense consistently good throughout the entire season.

Oakland Raiders - a team that strikes fear in the heart of nobody. Sure they may have a cog or two whom the opposition won't test - but this year, I think they've been blessed to strike oil. Holding perhaps the most impressive draft and stepping away from Al Davis' normal approach, the team seems to be in the hands of someone who can build, and with Jason Campbell at the helm in an offense fit for his strengths, there's no telling how high the roof is for the Raiders.

Washington Redskins, bias, favoritism... nope. This is a team everyone has called talented enough to win it for years. This is a team that, under Shanahan, may be able to utilize that talent into teamwork. McNabb has fought with less to get more than what Washington has tasted in the last 19 years. The defense is in a scheme now where they can play off instinct and pressure, and not off of calculated pre-snap destination.

The final team I'd watch out for, the Carolina Panthers. These guys were there, and had a rough year. They lost Julius Peppers, but Carolina has always been known to find gems at DE. There's a strong chance they can really make some things happen, especially if my gut is correct in telling me that Clausen will be the starter for the Panthers this season.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
