One final time:
The premise for these previews is simple. I did no research outside of what I typically read on Twitter and wrote down my thoughts. Then I did a little bit of research (meaning I read Dustin James’ previews) just so I don’t look like a complete idiot, and you feel like you got something of value out of reading this.
Presearch: Honestly not sure Carson Palmer can recover from that NFC Title game performance. Jon Jones brother will help an already good defense. Bruce Arians is a great head coach and you can’t teach that. Gonna be fighting for the division crown with the Seahawks again.
Research: Everyone seems to love the Cardinals heading into this season. It’s hard not to see why. They’re strong at every position and have a great coach. But does anyone really trust Palmer? I don’t, and I still think that’s their downfall.
San Francisco 49ers
Presearch: Chip Kelly has a bunch of backup quarterbacks to work with and they won’t be able to run the offense that he wants to run. I’m not sold on Chip as a NFL head coach and I’m definitely not sold on the 49ers. Honestly might end up being the worst team in the league.
Research: Colin Kaepernick sitting down during the national anthem and then making the team were the biggest stories of the preseason for the 49ers. So I’d say things are going pretty well for the 49ers.
Presearch: They’ll miss Marshawn Lynch more than some may think. Russell Wilson is actually having sex with Ciara now so his play might drop off. Defense will be good but the loss of Bruce Irvin is going to hurt. Seattle fans were actually critical of Pete Carroll last year so that’s something to keep an eye on.
Research: Oh yeah, their offensive line is garbage. That might hurt Wilson’s play more than sex with Ciara. Their fans are also annoying. Come to think of it, so are most of their players. I’m just now realizing that I’m not really fan of the Seahawks. Wow.
Los Angeles Rams
Presearch: They’re coached by Jeff Fisher. I don’t care who is on the roster. They’re going 8-8.
Research: Did you not read the Presearch? Jeff Fisher is the head coach. 8-8 is the record.
