OKLAHOMA CITY, September 11, 2012 — Week 1 had some surprises like the Jets and RGIII. The first week can get people a little too excited sometimes. Here are 32 tweets for all 32 NFL teams. All in 140 characters or less.


Buffalo Bills: Some thought they could contend for a playoff spot, but this supposed upgraded defense made Mark Sanchez look like a Pro Bowler. That’s not easy.

Miami Dolphins: 3 picks for Tannehill. Not a good way to start. Looked about as bad as we thought.

New England Patriots: The Pats keep it rolling. They actually had a 100 yd rusher in Stevan Ridley. Don’t get sucked in to a NE RB in Fantasy! Trust me.

New York Jets: Who are these guys? Sanchez looked like Broadway Joe. We aren’t even talking about Tebow. Whoops.

Baltimore Ravens: Annihilated the Bengals. Aging defense was still strong. Topping 40 points wasn’t bad either. 

Cincinnati Bengals: Didn’t look improved from last year. Gave up over 40, couldn’t score either. Not a good first week.

Cleveland Browns: Defense shut down Vick, but the offense is one of the worst. Weeden had 4 picks and got stuck under the flag before the game. 

Pittsburgh Steelers: Can Big Ben survive behind that line? The Broncos D circled him and wouldn’t let him leave.

Houston Texans: Foster looked good. Johnson looked good. Schaub looked real good. It was against Miami though.

Indianapolis Colts: Luck was responsible for 4 turnovers. He didn’t look awful but he has some growing up to do.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Actually had a chance to win. But it was against the Vikings.

Tennessee Titans: No chance against the Pats. Bolts up next.

Denver Broncos: Manning looked sharp. Even took a few hits and got right back up. Good first test against Pit.

Kansas City Chiefs: Bad.

Oakland Raiders: Started sharp but fell apart against the Chargers.

San Diego Chargers: Actually looked pretty good against their week 1 foe. Oh that’s right it was the Raiders. 


Dallas Cowboys: Dallas is back! Calm down it was week 1. This team has to show it can keep it up. Defense did look much improved which was weak spot.

New York Giants: What happened to the champs? Looked like they didn’t know what they were doing which probably means they will win the SB.

Philadelphia Eagles: Vick played awful but still won. Body language not good. Can his teammates rely on him? Do they believe? Does he?

Washington Redskins: RGIII punched his ticket to the HOF. Actually he was really impressive on the road in NO. Steal of the draft?

Chicago Bears: Shut Luck down. Did what we thought they would do. Don’t crown them just yet.

Detroit Lions: Almost lost to the Rams. Stafford 3 picks. Just throw it up to Megatron.

Green Bay Packers: Bad defense. Bad defense. Bad defense. Offense didn’t look great either.

Minnesota Vikings: AD is a beast. Ponder looked in control. It was just Jacksonville. We’ll see.

Atlanta Falcons: Offense lit it up. Matt Ryan had huge fantasy points. 

Carolina Panthers: Sophomore slump for Cam? Couldn’t get anything going against a beatable Bucs.

New Orleans Saints: Lost to a rookie QB at home. Thought maybe the suspensions being lifted would give them a lift. Guess not.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Beat the Panthers. Defense shut down Cam. Freeman looked more like 2010 than 2011. That’s good.

Arizona Cardinals: Even though they won they still don’t look too good. Is Kolb the answer?

St. Louis Rams: Almost beat the Lions which is already an improvement. Looks like Fisher is going to run the ball and the clock trying to protect Bradford.

San Francisco 49ers: Most impressive win of week 1. Defense shut the Pack down and the O looked pretty good.

Seattle Seahawks: Some picked Seattle for the SB! Lost to Ariz. Where do you go from here?
