The 2012 preseason is finally drawing to an end, but the preseason is always the time that the casual fans begin to tune in and find out if their team will actually have a shot this season. However, there have been a couple teams that have been getting all the headlines.
Denver Broncos: Peyton Manning is back and it was odd to not see him throw touchdown passes last season. Peyton has been the face of the NFL for what seems like decades almost and it’s good to have the king back, but the media has been treating the Broncos camp like ground zero. We don’t need to know every little thing that happens at Broncos camp with Manning. It’s getting to the point where we are just watching a one man art house flick where nothing is going on, but we have to see if something crazy is going to happen to him.
New York Giants: They’re the defending Super Bowl champs and yet they claimed at one point this preseason that they are under the radar? That all changed when Jason Pierre Paul was videotaped throwing second year cornerback Prince Amukamara into a cold tub. It created a firestorm about the issue of hazing rookie NFL players and Prince wasn’t even a rookie this season. The video itself was really not that big of deal after watching it, but Prince did look really sad when he got out of that cold tub.
