“It has definitely been amazing,” said Casey, 28. “I feel like when I wake up in the morning I’ve got more energy. If I’ve got aches and pains, they go away much faster.
“It has just been a process to help me knowing that I’m about to be into Year Eight (career-wise). You need to start taking care of your body.”
It’s not about what Rosen has said about college athletes deserving to be paid, players sitting out bowl games or his statements about preferring to play for a top franchise; it’s the fact he’s always the person questioning the system. There’s a reason most quarterbacks speak in cheesy cliches and never let on too much. It’s a quarterback’s job to be as non-divisive and football-focused as possible.
The Saints, Panthers, Eagles and Vikings round out the list of playoff newbies. I like Minnesota’s chances to be the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium. Too many flaws or too much playoff inexperience will doom the others outside of the Vikings and Patriots. The Steelers’ playoff history in Foxborough will be their downfall.
This is a great time of year to work for an NFL team that has fought through the peaks and valleys to reach the postseason. First, there is a feeling of job security although we have seen owners occasionally fire coaches and GMs even after a playoff season. It happened to me in a power struggle with the head coach when I left the Vikings after our 15-1 season in 1998, but I fortunately wound up as president of the Titans’ Super Bowl team. Generally, it’s nice not to have to worry about Black Monday and firings in the NFL when playoffs are on tap.
