Tale of the tape
Tale Of The Tape: Miami Dolphins At Cleveland Browns
The Dolphins are coming off a 7-9 season in which they surprised a lot of observers. Rookie head coach Joe Philbin seemed to steady the ship in Miami and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill claimed the quarterback job.
Tale Of The Tape: Cincinnati Bengals At Chicago Bears
The Bears are at a crucial point with Jay Cutler. He is in the last year of his contract and they want to see legitimate growth this year before they offer him a megabucks deal for the future.
Tale Of The Tape: Seattle Seahawks At Carolina Panthers
In the year of the rookie quarterback, Russell Wilson was as good a story as Andrew Luck or RGIII last year. The unheralded and unimpressive looking Wilson simply took his opportunity and ran with it.
Tale Of The Tape: Kansas City Chiefs At Jacksonville Jaguars
A new era begins in Kansas City with an established head coach in Andy Reid and a top-level professional quarterback in Alex Smith.
Tale Of The Tape: Tampa Bay Buccaneers At New York Jets
There are still plenty of issues for the Bucs at the quarterback position with Josh Freeman, but they are in quarterback heaven compared to the position the Jets find themselves in. Freeman has size, strength, athleticism and a big arm, but he is often troubled by a lack of consistency.
Tale Of The Tape: Tennessee Titans At Pittsburgh Steelers
Jake Locker is a quarterback with a lot to prove. While he has the tools needed to succeed – arm strength, decent accuracy, physical strength and ability to evade the rush – he needs a lot of work in blitz recognition.
