Dear Greg Jennings,
This is an open letter to stop filming commercials and start scoring touchdowns! …Or at least use the skills you showcase in your commercials.

QB A posted 437 yards, four touchdowns, zero interceptions a 115.9 QB rating and 34 fantasy points.

Two games into the 2012 NFL season and we are starting to see some trends and patterns of play emerge. One player who has shown up the past two weeks as a potential lifeline to battered wide receiver corps is Brandon LaFell, wide receiver for the Carolina Panthers.

Football is a supremely physical sport. Players in the National Football League have been getting injured in numerous ways for several years. One of the most polarizing figures in the NFL is Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Michael Vick. Vick, his dog fighting issues aside, has been one of the most stellar and one of the most heartbreaking quarterbacks at the same time for the Eagles’ faithful.
The Kansas City Chiefs look to return key injured players, Matt Cassel (QB), Jamaal Charles (RB) and Eric Berry (S). Also look for Tony Moeaki (TE) to return after flashing potential with Cassel but missing last year with an ACL injury. Key additions for the Chiefs include tackle Eric Winston and running back Peyton Hillis both of which should help the run game and first round draft pick DT Dontari Poe.
