Spooky Express Back for Football Season

What questions are you looking to get answered this NFL Season??

How will Chip Kelly do in Philly? I said all last year that the Iggles will miss Andy Reid and I still think that. Losing Jeremy Maclin for the year was an ugly start; the Riley Cooper fiasco wasn’t a whole lot better, but at least that seems to have been handled internally. Kelly came out of nowhere (OC at U of New Hampshire) to do a great job at Oregon. Will be fascinating to see how he does in the NFC East.

Reid is in Kansas City with QB Alex Smith, who went 13-3 in San Francisco then got shown the door. Two guys who were successful in their last spot should do fine in Arrowhead; Chiefs’ Week 3 visit to Philly should be a fun night.

Patriots didn’t have the best offseason, losing their top five receivers from LY. Tom Brady is 36, its been nine years since they last won the Super Bowl. Signing Tim Tebow is a head scratcher. They’re in a lame division; their passing game will be interesting to watch, especially early on.

Sean Payton is back coaching the Saints, which is nothing but good news on Bourbon Street; Rob Ryan surfaces as Saints’ DC, after New Orleans gave up a ton of yards LY. Easy to envision a bounce back year for the Saints.

Speaking of the Ryans, can Jets’ coach Rex Ryan keep his job? He has two new coordinators, a shaky QB position and an impatient fanbase; at least he got rid of Tebow, whose acquisition last year is still an unsolved mystery. Jets play New England in Week 2, which will either silence the frontrunners or make them really, really loud.

Colts didn't have many injuries LY; those things tend to even out over time. Indy lost OC Arians to the Cardinals; they brought in Stanford’s OC, so no telling how that’s going to work out. This is really Bruce Arians’ first full year as full-time HC after being ill LY. Andrew Luck is the real deal, but sometimes teams that make a big leap one year take a step back the next. We’ll see.

Has Robert Griffin III really rehabbed so quickly? Coming back from his injury this fast doesn’t seem normal. Redskins are being very cautious with their star QB, so we might not know before their opener with Philly just how healthy RGIII is.

Carson Palmer has moved to Arizona, Matt Flynn is now Oakland’s QB. Flynn has two career starts, the same number Matt Schaub had in Atlanta before he moved on to the Texans. Flynn can only hope his Oakland career goes as well as Schaub’s is going in Houston, but his lack of deep throwing is going to be different for Raider fans. .

Can new Bears’ coach, QB guru Marc Trestman get more out of Jay Cutler than defensive-minded Lovie Smith did? Smith is only 4th coach since 1990 to get canned after winning 10+ games; it’s a calculated risk by Chicago management to get more out of their star QB, who also discovered he is a diabetic. Bears are an interesting team.

Why won’t Jerry Jones draft a developmental QB? Tony Romo is in his 30’s, not like he’s Elway or Brady anyway- Dallas needs a young QB to push Romo and to eventually take over the top spot. Why hasn’t this happened? Dallas is on Sunday Night Football twice in first seven weeks, not really sure why, but they always are.

Will any of the seven first-time head coaches make the playoffs? You don’t get hired because the team you inherited is good; new coaches generally inherit some kind of a mess. If any of these guys make the playoffs, they’ll be a candidate for Coach of the Year.

Steelers are minus-23 in turnovers the last two years; Big Ben seemed happier when Bruce Arians was his OC and he threw the ball all over the field. Todd Haley wants Pittsburgh to runt he ball more; they need to get that turnover ratio to at least around even to show improvement this season.

The Super Bowl champ Ravens lost of lot of people from LY, which isn’t always bad; their QB got paid big-time, when it looked like he might be moving on to another team, before their miraculous playoff win in Denver. Will the Ravens have what Pat Riley calls “the disease of me” when everyone thinks they’re the reason the team won the championship, or will Harbaugh do another superior coaching job and keep the Ravens in the playoffs?

As always, looking forward to your input, Spook. Amazing the stuff you accumulate in your "upstairs" man, Truly amazing.
Guess my question is the Griffin thing. Actually, the whole Washington thing, w/him never really running a pro set offense. Granted, he can (could ?) run. So, I pulled the trigger on the season under 8 @ +110. And some 8.5 at -125, I think, if I remember that vig right.

Also gave Dallas a shot at over 8.5 at +110 & +115. Jones is steaming.........and I don't need them to set the world on fire, just 9-7 will do it. & as above, Wash & Phil may have problems, that may help.

Love those +'s on juice. One gets tired of the -140's on up that are common.

GL this season, man. And thanks in advance for all that you will post.

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !
