O. J. loved the game of football since he was a young child. At the age of 9, he played in his first little league game in his hometown of San Francisco. He continued his football career in high school. Simpson was a standout and in his senior year, he led the city in scoring. Although, to his dismay, despite his power establishing play on the field, his grades weren’t up to par enough to receive college scholarships.
Second, he possessed an astonishing intuition that resulted in long gains or touchdowns, when other quarterbacks would have been sacked. And third, he was a calm leader and an inspiration to everyone around him for more than a decade, (Montana, & Mitchell, 2006). Joe Montana would become the greatest NFL regular season and Super Bowl quarterback ever or at least to date; Joe’s climb to the top of the NFL was not ominous. Joe was not drafted by the 49ers until the third round in 1979, unlike most super star quarterbacks, that almost always go immediately in the first round draft. Joe Montana shined during his high school athletic career, but had to earn every spot he played after that, (Montana, & Mitchell,
Brady played college football for, and graduated from, the University of Michigan. After Graduating from Michigan And declaring for the draft Brady was selected with pick #199, a compensatory pick, in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL draft. Brady got his first start after Mo Lewis’ hit on Drew Bledsoe that caused internal bleeding. Brady’s first two starts where a victory against the Colts and then a loss against the Dolphins. Brady found his groove by the fifth game of the 2000-2001 season his third start.
Having speed, agility, power, and awareness is the key components for winning a game on defense and the Eagles have all of that. Starting with the secondary led by all-pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha that had a dreadful year in his first year with team but, since he got a feel of the National Conference and adapt to the team now, I can see plenty of interceptions coming his way next season. On the other side of the field is Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie also first year with the team who suffered knee problems along the way. Over the off season activities the team should have enough chemistry to become an elite defense
Young also won the 2005 Cingular Player of the Year Award, All-American Offensive Player, and The Maxwell Award (college player of the year). He is what some would call the best college football player ever, and he fills this role pretty well. A perfect display of his dominance was exhibited at the 2006 Rose Bowl where he compiled 467 yards of total offense and 3 rushing touchdowns. Young’s third touchdown came in the final seconds of the game where he ran around the outside and went untouched into the end zone to put Texas up 41-38 over unbeaten USC. But like Redick, Vince keeps it together off the field.
The Giants came out on top after overtime games in the NFC Championship both years. In 2007, Randy Moss broke receiving records and in 2011 Rob Gronkowski shattered almost all offensive tight end records. The ’11 Giants had retained a whopping 17 of their ’07 champ team, giving off the “feel” of déjà vu to Patriot fans and players. The actual events that took place in the game gave the biggest feeling of déjà vu though. The Giants dominated the first half in both games, while New England dominated the second in both contests.
As a result of so many failed attempts, the blame has been heavily put onto the quarterback, Mark Sanchez. In only two seasons, Sanchez has more postseason wins than any other quarterback in the franchise (Freier, 20). Statistics show that Mark Sanchez has played very well during each AFC championship game, ultimately showing that he is not the only liable source to blame (Reiter, 76). Through the past few seasons, under head coach Rex Ryan, the coaching staff has been at blame as well. In a game, mismanagement and misunderstanding makes Sanchez look disorganized and unprofessional, placing the blame solely on him.
ATHLETE REPORT Adrian Peterson Adrian Peterson is a six foot one, two hundred and seventeen pound running back who wears number twenty-eight for the Minnesota Vikings. Adrian is also referred to by the nick name All Day which his dad gave him as a child because he was so hyperactive. Today his nick name is A.D. which is just an abbreviated version of all day.

Coach K at last led Duke to victory in 1991, winning their first national championship. Once again in the year 1992, Duke won the national title, and maintained the national number one ranking throughout the season, this time by 20 points.
