Ada eighth grader Zach Beaschler offers this NFL season overview

The favorite sport in America is football (no doubt), but the NFL has changed so much since last season.

I don't mean NFL rules or the NFL cities. I mean NFL teams and coaches.

First, are the Eagles. They fired their head coach Andy Reid and now they have old head coach of Oregon Chip Kelly. During the preseason the Eagles picked Micheal Vick over Nick Foles for starting quarterback. Their first round pick was Line Johnson offensive tackle with the 4th pick overall.

Now time for the Steelers. They ended up 8-8 in the 2012 season not making the playoffs for the second time out of eight years of head coach Mike Tomlin's career as the Steelers head coach. In the first round the Steelers picked Jarvis Jones.

Now for the Broncos, in the 7th round (as you all know) Zac Dysert, an Ada grad, went to the Broncos in the 7th round. Their head coach is John Fox. The Broncos lost in the conference finals to the Baltimore Ravens. Their starting quarterback is Peyton Manning in his 2nd year as a Denver Bronco.

The Bengals come up next. Their head coach is Marvin Lewis. They lost in the first round of the playoffs. They picked Tyler Eifert (tight end) in the first round of the draft.

Now to do the Chiefs. They got Chip Kelly form the Eagles as their head coach. The Chiefs got the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft. They picked Eric Fisher (offensive tackle.) These are just some of examples of the NFL changes.
