With week one of the 2010 NFL pre-season done, here is some of the more interesting news from around the league:

New York Giants | Eli Manning received 12 stitches in his head, after being lambasted by Jets’ linebacker Calvin Pace, losing his helmet, and having his head get a personal introduction to Jim Leonhard’s facemask.  A concussion was ruled out, but the Giants may be playing the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend without Manning.

Undrafted rookie free agent, Victor Cruz, made his Monday night football debut with significantly better results.  In addition the Giants’ unknown, undrafted wide receiver caught three touchdowns, with one of them being a literal one-handed grab resulting in a 64-yard run for the TD.

Pittsburgh Steelers | With Roethlisberger likely to start for the Steelers against the New York Giants at the New Meadowlands Stadium, there are still several questions regarding who the starting QB will be during Roethlisberger’s four to six game suspension.  It appeared as though Byron Leftwich had the job, but Dennis Dixon played well enough to keep the final decision under wraps.

Additionally, first-round draft pick, Maurkice Pouncey, was all but relegated to playing his first year as a guard now has Tomlin considering throwing him in the mix for the starting (if not rotating) position of center for the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Having six seemingly good receivers has also put the future of Stefan Logan in jeopardy, and his performance against the Giants this weekend – or lack thereof – could be a determining factor in the Steelers’ decision.

San Francisco 49ers | Free agent running back, Brian Westbrook, signed a one-year contract with the  49ers.  Westbrook played with the Philadelphia Eagles for eight seasons.

NFL Weekend Roundup

It was a busy weekend for NFL football.  The Dallas Cowboys saw Emmett Smith inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame, and the Cowboys beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the HOF Game, 16-7.  The Pittsburgh Steelers attended to enjoy Dick LeBeau’s induction, and we are now 3 days away from the start of the 2010 NFL pre-season.  Let’s have a look at the Thursday matchups.

New England Patriots

New Orleans Saints at New England Patriots - Thursday, August 12 – 7:30 pm.

With the Saints looking to avoid the dreaded “Super Bowl Hangover”, the team will travel to Gillette Stadium to open the 2010 season against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.  While the Saints are sick and tired of hearing the term directed at them, history speaks for itself.  There has never been a repeat NFC South champion in the history of its existence.

Baltimore Ravens

Carolina Panthers at Baltimore Ravens – Thursday, August 12 – 8:00 pm.

The Ravens will kick off their pre-season with three QB’s in the mix.  In addition, the improved passing game with Anquan Bolden and Dante Stallworth should keep the Ravens offense exciting.  The Panthers are looking to evaluate the competition at the #2 wideout slot, and put last season’s horrible start in the past.


Dallas Cowboys

Oakland Raiders at Dallas Cowboys - Thursday, August 12 – 9:00 pm.

The Raiders have had dismal seasons recently, but feel that they are contenders.  Fans are demanding a change up in play calling, and a winning season.  The Cowboys are hurting after their Hall of Fame game yesterday, since John Phillips most likely has a torn ACL, and Kevin Brock sustaining a left ankle sprain.
