Wild, Wacky Windup to NFL Season

2008 has been a wild ride for the NFL. There have been many firsts and a bunch of only happened once before type of scenarios played out this season. Chad Pennington leading the Dolphins from a 1-15 season a year ago to the AFC East Championship. The 4-8 Chargers charging into the playoffs after polishing off the division leading Broncos in the final week. The 11-5 Patriots not making post-season play. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers going 9-3 and dropping their final four to sit home for January. There are more stories of triumph and collapse including the Cowboys win and in chance at Philadelphia, only to drop the biggest egg in recent memory, including the first 0-16 team in league history.
I'm excited for these playoffs, because each match up looks intriguing before kick-off and that is the way I like it as these final 12 teams head out on the road to Tampa.
