NFL starts tomorrow! September 05, 2013, 02:02:24 PM The season opener pits the Broncos against the Superbowl winner, Baltimore Ravens. Peyton Manning's boys are red-hot favourites. For me, this season will be much more enjoyable. Last year, although some games were broadcast on OneHD (as they will be this year too), problems with reception meant I had to try various ways of putting tension on the antenna cable to get things working, and often I'd have to give up altogether when the scores were tight at the end of the game. This year, I have Fox and I can IQ ESPN.One tip I picked up from a US sports journo is that you have to temper your enthusiasm for sides with 2nd-year QBs such as Colin Kapernick, Andrew Luck and RG3. He pointed out that Cam Newton had a great first year, but he didn't follow it up well. The reasons behind this US version of 2nd-year blues are:Coaches tend to keep things very simple for 1st-year QBs, but then they tend to throw the whole playbook at them in the offseason and they find it difficult to cope.Opponents have seen much more of these rookies and know what they want to do on big plays, meaning they're much better at negating them.He did, however, suggest that Andrew Luck is a football genius and isn't likely to be overawed. This guy also suggested that there's a strong trend to do away with huddles after each play and the hurry-up offence is more common, meaning more plays throughout the game.
