We are on the eve of kick off for the first Sunday of the regular NFL season. There are so many questions that are waiting to be answered.
Will my 49ers finally be able to turn it around?
Who will be this year’s worst to first team?
Will Tom Brady and the Patriots be able to continue their dominance of the AFC East, or will they do what teams, who lost in the pervious season Super Bowl in the past, and fail to make the playoffs?
Will the national anthem debate be the talk of another season or will it die down?
So many questions. And though we will not get those questions completely answered tomorrow, we will at least get closer. But we will not truly get a feel for which teams will blossom to become “contenders”, and which teams will line up to try and become the top pick in the 2019 draft until week 5.
With all that said, welcome back NFL. The sport where each week matters. Though the first few games will be full of penalties and mistakes, as a result of the CBA that limits the amount of off season contact. A team that can capitalize and go 3-0 or 4-0 has a much better chance at both a playoff spot and (possible) home field advantage.
So grab your favorite jerseys, foam fingers, face paint, and lucky socks. Because you have a game tomorrow.
