I was recently on the phone with my brother Will, discussing the upcoming football season and the potential break out teams in the NFL. We discussed schemes and coaches; stadium surfaces and fan bases. That led me to my sleeper pick of the NFC; the Carolina Panthers, led by Cam Newton, Steve Smith, DeAngelo Williams. Will, being a Washington Redskins fan till the end, couldn't even argue with the logic I presented him.
Will and I both agreed there are two types of super human in the NFL; Sayains and Super Saiyans (ala Dragon Ball Z) and there are only two Super Saiyans in the league right now. One is Calvin Johnson, the brilliant wide reciever for the Detroit Lions and the other is the leader of the Panthers - from now until he likely retires. The difference between the two teams is simple; one Super Saiyan must have the ball thrown to him and the other throws the ball to his proven studs.
