It’s finally here, the first full weekend of the 2006 NFL season. The first game was back on Thursday—Miami at Pittsburgh. Today, I will go over each game and give you my initial thoughts. I will not go into great detail—that will start next week. It’s 8am Sunday morning, so let’s get cracking.

The other night I was at the Red Rock Resort in Summerlin to enjoy a night out. I placed my first three-team college football parlay bet of the season. I’m more of a straight up bettor, but I will throw down a parlay here and there. My original intent wasn’t to place a parlay at all. However, I was out with my buddy who’s a parlay machine. He just can’t place a straight bet. He loves seeing the payoff go well beyond the bet.

It’s only game one of the 2006 season, but the Miami Dolphins have already proved they have work to do. One week ago, I wrote an article entitled “Miami Dolphins Over Hyped.” In that article, I talked about why the Miami Dolphins are not as good as the media was hyping them to be. I gave three solid reasons why. One reason was Daunte Culpepper. I mentioned his interception problem before. Last night that problem showed up in spades.

This entire NFL offseason we have been hearing media outlet after media outlet tout the Miami Dolphins. Yes, the Dolphins are this season’s bandwagon team. Countless NFL analysts are quick to jump on and shout, “Look Ma No Hands!” I am not one of them. Yes, the AFC East is not that strong, but I just am not buying that the Miami Dolphins are that great. They finished 9-7 last season thanks to a six game win streak to close out the year. I will present three ironclad points that prove the Miami Dolphins are not the best thing since sliced bread.

Last season was a breakthrough for the Seattle Seahawks. They went all the way to the Super Bowl—still getting little respect. In the Super Bowl, they lost to the officials who had little help from a team called the Steelers. The gross display of “officiating” was well documented. As usual, nothing was done about it and the game goes on. Still stinging from the rookie officiating mistakes, the Seahawks gear up for a new season.

There are a few games on the docket tonight, but one has top 25 importance—Northern Arizona University at #24 Arizona State University. The game kicks off at 10pm EST, which is 7pm PST. One of the ASU QBs, Sam Keller, is now in Nebraska. He threw for 2,165 yards, 20 TDs and 9 INTs last season. Still, the ASU Sun Devils have starter Rudy Carpenter. He threw for 2,2273 yards with 17 TDs and only 2 picks last year. Are the ASU Sun Devils top 25 material?

When Terrell Owens was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys, you just knew it was only a matter of time before he started creating problems in Cowboys camp. For most of the preseason we have been hearing about Owens’ “injury” and how he couldn’t practice. I for one am calling shenanigans. He’s a spoiled little baby and needs to be coddled. Well, the Dallas Cowboys made their first official move against Terrell Owens—the first of many perhaps.

The St. Louis Rams struggled last season going 6-10. They closed out the 2005 season by going 1-4 over their last five games. The lone win was against Dallas (20-10) in a meaningless game. This season the rams have a new coach—Scott Linehan. Are the problems gone as well? Linehan not only steps into the Rams coaching job for the first time, but as an NFL head coach too.

The quarterback situation in Buffalo Bills camp has been in turmoil since Drew Bledsoe left. According to Buffalo Bills coach, Dick Jauron, quarterback Kelly Holcomb will start the preseason opener against Carolina today for the Buffalo Bills. To avoid any type of controversy, coach Jauron, said that J.P. Losman will likely start next week’s preseason game against Cincinnati.

There are five preseason NFL football games today. There are a couple of games to watch—at least for a few minutes. Actually, I’m starving for the NFL, so I will watch an entire game at this point. Here are the match ups and the current lines.
