The NFL kicks off its 2012 season with a good old-fashioned rivalry game, not to mention one that could have a profound impact on the playoff picture down the road.
It all begins with the exact same matchup in which the league closed out its 2011 regular season, with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys facing off in a grudge match at MetLife Stadium. The two NFC East contenders last locked horns in Northern New Jersey on New Year's Day in what turned out to be one of the most pivotal outcomes of last year's campaign, a 31-20 victory by the Giants.
Nevertheless the NFL Referees Association filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, accusing the league of unfair labor practices.
Reacting to the referee labor dispute, the NFL Players Association has expressed concern, saying in a statement, "In 2011, the NFL tasked officials with increased responsibilities in protecting player health and safety, and its search for scabs undermines that important function. Professional athletes require professional referees, and we believe in the NFL Referees Association's trained first responders." Chicago Bears center Roberto Garza told the Chicago Tribune that there is a familiarity with the regular referees on what they will and will not call, and so players "might be able to get away with more" when dealing with the replacement officials.
One of the replacements is Shannon Eastin, the first female to ever officiate an NFL game, but Darin Gantt of Profootballtalk.com lamented that this gender barrier was broken in this situation.
At the Ravens' spacious team complex in suburban Baltimore, where they're staying home for training camp a second consecutive year after a 15-year run of sweating through their summer work at McDaniel College in Westminster, Md., about 30 minutes or so northwest of here.
The Ravens stayed home last year because of the late end to the lockout, and then decided it made more football sense to not hit the road every July and August. That's now the majority view in the NFL, with 18 of the league's 32 teams training in their own facility instead of camping elsewhere. It has not been a popular move with Ravens fans, because the team can't accommodate big crowds at their 200,000-square foot facility during camp, but Baltimore has tried to offset that by scheduling several off-site practices that thousands of fans can attend this month.
Paul Kruger, outside linebacker. No pressure on Kruger this season. All he has to do is replace the league's reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year in Terrell Suggs, who tore his Achilles' tendon this offseason and likely won't return to his high-impact self until 2013. Suggs, of course, has been one of the NFL's most disruptive players from his weakside rush-linebacker slot, and in reality the Ravens know that one player alone probably can't make up for his lost production.
The Ravens already knew Kruger had strong pass rush skills, but they've been encouraged this camp by his improvement in the area of pass coverage, knowing when and how to go into his drops. Staying healthy and surviving the 16-game grind is another key for Kruger, but he's off to a strong start and seems determined to seize the starting opportunity at hand and make sure the Ravens season didn't end when Suggs went down.
New Face, New Place
Jim Caldwell, quarterbacks coach. In Caldwell coming to Baltimore, yet another ex-head coach from the 2011 season has landed with a new team that seems thrilled to have him (see Tony Sparano, Raheem Morris, Steve Spagnuolo, Todd Bowles, Jack Del Rio, Todd Haley, etc...). Caldwell, who was let go by the Colts after last year's Peyton-less meltdown in Indy, is a great fit with Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, and the two have reportedly clicked almost effortlessly. Both have the same even temperament and calm demeanor, and Caldwell has been a welcomed and needed buffer between Flacco and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, whose relationship has been known to have bouts of tension at times.
Caldwell brings a lot of credibility to Baltimore, and Flacco already is benefitting from his steady-as-she-goes coaching style. Harbaugh told me his fifth-year quarterback is having his best camp as a Raven "by a significant margin,'' with quicker reads and decisions, faster footwork, better on-field posture, and more accuracy than he has ever shown. If Flacco's head is troubled by the lack of a long-term contract extension in the final year of his rookie deal, he certainly hasn't shown it thus far in camp. It sounds like Caldwell gets at least partial credit for that.
Pittsburgh may have gotten the steal of the draft by taking David DeCastro 24th overall. DeCastro is an instant upgrade over any player the Steelers have put at guard since Alan Faneca left the team.
There's no doubt DeCastro opens the season as the starter in the Steel City and, barring any major setback, his style of play should help him fit right in with his Steelers teammates.
Same story pretty much as Chandler Jones, although New England already had a pretty good linebacking corps with Jerod Mayo, Brandon Spikes and Rob Ninkovich.
Like Jones, Hightower's scheme versatility allows the Patriots to draw up a lot of plays to utilize his talents. In the base 4-3 sets, Hightower will line up at the SAM linebacker position, allowing Ninkovich to move up to defensive end.
It'd be hard for me to think a player with Hightower's skill set and leadership qualities wouldn't be starting for the Patriots, whose defense lacked a lot of firepower in 2011.
After losing Mario Williams to free agency, the Texans got Wade Philips a new toy off the edge in former Illinois pass rusher Whitney Mercilus.
Although Williams only played part of the season last year due to injury, Houston's defense thrived and young linebackers Conner Barwin and Brooks Reed stepped up to the challenge.
