Tear yourself away from Wall Street and start thinking about your NFL tickets. If there was ever a good investment, and these days it’s pretty hard to find anything that looks good, it’s got to be NFL tickets in 2011. It’s been a long wait and while many felt the NFL would be in a disaster zone right now, the league rebounded nicely and is now cruising towards a big payoff.
Free agency hit in a big way in one of the most active and exciting weeks in NFL history . Some teams made a big splash while others went about things in a quiet way. Some of the most newsworthy?
Philadelphia Eagles Tickets – The Philadelphia Eagles have been winners under Andy Reid but they haven’t broken through and won a Super Bowl. Donovan McNabb got them there but fell short. Now it’s Michael Vick’s turn at the helm beginning with game 1. Vick took over from Kevin Kolb last season and became the comeback story of the year in the NFL. But the eagles fell short against the Green Bay Packers and in 2011 they’ve taken the NFL free agency world by storm. Their biggest signing was Nnamdi Asomugha in the opinion of most, but they’ve also taken on Vince Young in a backup role, and put together one fearsome defensewith Jason Babin and Cullen Jenkins expected to wreak havoc on opposing offenses. Toss in a good trade of Kevin Kolb and the Eagles come out smelling like a rose.
New England Patriots Tickets – Patriots tickets are another example of good return in an uncertain market. In this case though, the Patriots are taking the high risk road with Albert Haynesworth. I find this interesting because the Patriots tend to build from within. But when Big Bill goes out on a limb on a player with character issues it usually pays off. Remember Randy Moss?
