Nike Commercial with Tomlinson and Polamalu

This is a Nike commercial featuring the lives of San Diego Chargers RB Ladainian Tomlinson and Pittsburgh Steelers SS Troy Polamalu. David Fincher (Seven, Fight Club, Zodiac) directed, and the song is Ennio Morricone’s “Ecstasy of Gold,” prominently featured in “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” With the Super Bowl just four days away, I thought I would post a creative video that highlights two of football’s best. Hope you like it.

Miami Dolphins 2009 Schedule: OUCH!

By becoming AFC East champions, look at the schedule the Miami Dolphins have drawn for the 2009-2010 season:

Home – Jets, Bills, Patriots, Texans, Colts, Saints, Buccaneers, Steelers

Road – Jets, Bills, Patriots, Titans, Jaguars, Panthers, Falcons, Chargers

Six of the Dolphins non-divisional games are against teams that made the playoffs this year (in bold). Also, the Patriots should have Tom Brady back for the start of the season. Essentially, eight games (half the season) will be played against top-tier, playoff-caliber opponents in 2009. Last I checked, going 8-8 is not good. The Fins will have to pull some of those games out.

With Bill Parcells deciding to stay for the remainder of his contract (3 more years), the Dolphins’ front office and players will have their hands full.
