Yesterday evening the 2012 NFL Schedule was released for the general public. The season starts off with a match up between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants on Wednesday, September 5th. It’ll be the first time the season would start on a Wednesday.

At around 8:59am this morning, I was woken up by one of my SportsCenter alerts confirming that Peyton Manning has instructed his agents to start negotiations with the Denver Broncos. Being a Raiders fan this news is very disheartening, but what would I have rather had? Manning as a 49er or a Bronco? Honestly I think I was hoping for neither, but it’s looking as though Manning will be the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Where does that leave Tim Tebow? Well sources say that Tebow would ultimately be traded when the deal with Manning becomes finalized. I don’t like Tebow much at all since I see him as a running back posing as a quarterback. But I guess I would’ve took the lesser of two evils and had Tebow stay in Denver seeing as how the Raiders defense is in the rebuilding stage. This day following Peyton Manning and what he may do is going to get more interesting as the hours go by.

Wide receiver, Randy Moss has reached a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. The receiver went to Santa Clara to work out for the team and coach Jim Harbaugh. It would be a great asset to the team since their receiving core is depleting with the loss of Braylon Edwards in December. Moss will join first round pick Michael Crabtree and quarterback, Alex Smith who has yet to be resigned. The team finished just shy of the the Super Bowl this past season and hope to go for a repeat of going even further. And just maybe Moss will be that missing link to take them to the big game.
