This is the best time of year....FOOTBALL SEASON! high school and college football is already underway and this Thursday pro football officially kicks off and with that, we have brought back the Pro Football Pick 'Em Challenge where you could win $10,000 at the end of the season. This year promises to be if nothing else, one of the most memorable seasons in history because of all of the off the field stories this year that have really put pro football under a microscope.

The big news last year was the Seattle Seahawks and their incredible world championship run and can they repeat this year. I don't think they can, but I do think the Denver Broncos have a very good chance of returning to the big game.

Quarterbacks have dominated the pre-season from RGIII to Johnny Manziel and the usual debate about Tony Romo. Bottom line, this is going to be a fun year and the wait is finally over. You can see my week 1 picks below and you need to make your picks before Thursday night here.
