Friday is everyone’s favorite day of the week, but today is a particularly awesome one because it begins the final weekend of the NFL offseason. That’s right, next week training camp begins and the 2014 season will officially be under way.
The smell of fresh cut grass, the tension building in your stomach, the sound of shoulder pads crashing together at full speed…
If you’re like us you probably are so excited to see live football again that you don’t know what to do with yourself. So we decided to come up with five ways to pass the time this weekend. To start off let’s begin with the obvious. As long as your favorite players are putting in work in the film room, then you should too. That means obsessively viewing highlights from last season.
1. Watch the Josh McCown show
As a Bears fan I had a front row seat for Josh McCown’s amazing run in 2013. He outplayed Jay Cutler in every aspect of the game and I was livid when they benched him, and later let him walk and handed that smug smoker a ludicrous contract. Anyway, McCown finished with the third highest passer rating in the NFL last season, behind only Nick Foles and Peyton Manning.
McCown has a rocket of an arm and his pocket presence speaks to his nine years of experience in the league. If you haven’t seen what he did last year take a look at this highlight reel and try not to get excited about the Bucs in 2014. I dare you.
