I am not a fan of Brett Favre. But I sure as hell admire him. In his recent defeat in the NFC Championship game, I admit, I was haunted by the outcome. I couldn’t sleep afterwards, constantly replaying his final pass of the game over and over in my mind. It was his eyes, from their look of expectation the moment the ball left his hand to their look of dejection when he walked off the field.
In a press conference in New Orleans for the Super Bowl, the singer admitted to singing along to a pre-recorded track, but proved to the crowd that there were no issues with her voice. The diva busted out a stirring rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” for the audience of media. Beyonce is scheduled to perform the Super Bowl 2019 Live Online halftime show.
Admittedly Philly fans were a bit nervous during that one time New York had the lead, but were soon jumping up and spilling popcorn when that second TD was scored.
Whether the Steelers can match those offers or are in the ballpark is yet to be determined. Burress has been in contact with Ben Roethlisberger, and met with his former teammates for most of the day, 11 of whom are still on the team, and according to all, seemed content. His wife is from the Pittsburgh area.
Taking his spot on the roster is LB Joe Holland, who was recently waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week. Holland was initially with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent last season before being part of the final cut when the 2012 season began. He spent time on the practice squad for the Miami Dolphins and Buccaneers last year.
The Chiefs will be a pushover prior to another tough road trip to Washington. Then comes what will probably be a much-needed bye (the team’s latest bye since 2005). Indy better get healthy then because the next seven games are all against teams that either were in the playoffs last year or very well could be this year (and that stretch includes four 2009 division winners). The NFL’s marquee matchup every year is Colts-Patriots and they face off again, although this year in Foxboro after being in Indy the past three seasons. The game will be played in November for the sixth straight year and seventh in eight.
Check back in a week for my prediction on the Super Bowl as we get closer to game time. So much can change in a week that it wouldn’t be right to pick the game just yet.
