It’s the first week of the NFL regular season and before I begin talking about it, why don’t we take a moment to be thankful that football is back. Now I know college football started last week and I’m aware that the preseason started over a month ago, but for an NFL guy like me, Wednesday night was the beginning of the best time of the year. The Giants and Cowboys already gave us an exciting game. The Cowboys pulled out a 24-17 win on the back of breakout number three receiver Kevin Ogletree. On Sunday, 26 of the NFL’s 32 teams will take the field trying to do what the Cowboys did and start the season of with a win. There will also be many players suiting up Sunday who are hoping that Ogletree is not the only player who’s going to surprise people this year.
One player who has already surprised NFL fans is the Seahawks own quarterback Russell Wilson. The Rookie Wilson was not supposed to be the Seahawks starter; people thought he was a developmental prospect who could start a few...
BEST OF MAXIM
Dallas receiver Kevin Ogletree managed to change the focus of conversations from “The Cowboys don’t have a third receiver” to “This Ogletree kid looked awfully good. Should I pick him up on waivers for my fantasy team?”

In every NFL season, there are a handful of Charles Von Nobodies who emerge from the ether to have huge fantasy football seasons. Last year, Victor Cruz salsa danced his way into the hearts of fantasy owners across the country, and it seems the 2012 season already has its first potential waiver wire gem.Dallas Cowboys’ third-string wide receiver, Kevin Ogletree, had a career game...
My initial thought regarding Kevin Ogletree about half way through Wednesday night's Cowboys/Giants game was that we would see the typical early season over reaction to a widely non-drafted player that had everyone running to their league's waiver wire. By the time the game ended my opinion changed, Ogletree could be the 2012 version of Laurent Robinson in the Dallas offense...
Step up time
The Seattle Seahawks are headed down to University of Phoenix Stadium Sunday to take on division foe Arizona to start the regular season. Many feel it could be a trap game given the rookie factor surrounding this Seahawk team as well as the injuries the team has sustained.
With so many questionable players, it is hard to say exactly who will play in week 1. The ones...
Kevin Ogletree certainly looked like a solid #3 receiver on Wednesday.
Few teams in NFL history were as clueless about what to do with a lead than the 2011 Dallas Cowboys. This was the team that couldn’t hold a 24-10 lead over the Jets, a 27-3 lead over the Lions, or a 34-22 lead over the Giants. Making matters worse, the Cowboys had those leads in the fourth quarter.
