Weekend Recap: The Entire Season Version

High fives all around fellas. Everyone's made it through another season in which Reggie Bush did not turn out to be Moses without drowning oneself. Rookie running backs proved to be the new pink, Matt Cassel and Chad Pennington proved to be more than joke butts, and some guy named Roddy proved to be someone who can start a conversation with something other than, "Yes, Roddy is my real name." To recap it all... - Drew Brees came 16 yards short of breaking Dan Marino's record for passing yards in a season. He still tossed the ball a little less than 2.9 miles in 2008 and has cemented himself as an elite fantasy quarterback. - Youngens Philip Rivers, Jay Cutler, and Aaron Rogers also jumped into that class with breakout seasons this year. - Matt Ryan made Atlanta forget about Michael Vick. And for those who haven't yet forgotten Chris Chandler, he made them forget about Chris Chandler, too. - Tyler Thigpen and Matt Cassel became relevant. - Chad Pennington made Brett Favre and the Jets look like retards. - Something happened to Tom Brady, I think,. - Although his Steelers grabbed the No. 2 seed in the AFC, Ben Roethlisberger was a huge dissapointment. - The top of the mountain at running back looks completely different from last year, due to huge seasons by DeAngelo Williams, Thomas Jones, and Michael Turner. - Adrian Peterson is still good. - A rookie running back class led by top-10ers Matt Forte, Steve Slaton, and Chris Johnson made Brett Favre and the Jets look like Stephen Hawking compared to American males who had a crush on Darren McFadden. - LaDainian Tomlinson was not God this year, but still had 1,500 yards and 12 touchdowns. - Steven Jackson and Brandon Jacobs got banged up again. - Calvin Johnson, Roddy White, and Antonio Bryant broke out. - While it wasn't unreasonable, Terrell Owens and Randy Moss were both expected to finish one and two atop the wide receiver ranks. They didn't. Neither were top five. - Unknowns Lance Moore and Eddie Royal along with late bloomers Vincent Jackson and Bernard Berrian were also very good. - A lot of people would like to shoot Braylon Edwards, Chad Johnson, and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. - Someone actually did shoot Plaxico Burress. Himself. - Aside from one guy, Tony Gonzalez, the tight end position was a crapshoot. As the playoffs and offseason rages, we here at this site will review, break down, and chatter about the biggest topics, questions, and issues of the 2008 season and we will eventually discuss free agent signings, coaching changes, and other possibly news worthy NFL stuff as well. Check back often. Happy playoffin'.
