I am so delighted to see the Chiefs in there! It means something to see them respected outside of Kansas City Missouri! Thank you for the good mood you have given me today!

I know what you mean, Tennessee, being a small market club usually does not get the respect they deserve. I am SO glad I could brighten your day! I truly think the Chiefs will win the west.

Let's see here......

It's that time of year again to see whether or not our predictions come true or come crashing to the ground.

AFC

Here's a fact for you, the AFC South will be hotly contested this year between the Colts and Titans as per the usual with this division. What might cost the Colts though could be a two gam losing streak or the loss of a key player. However, Pittsburgh is going to have a little bit of a go with those pesky Ravens for the AFC North this year. I do see Pittsburgh coming away with the division after Baltimore falters late in the season. As for the AFC East, it may not be New England coming away with the division title again this year either. With Brady coming off a knee injury, New England might take it easy with Brady just to see how the knee will withstand a gameday. Pertaining to the AFC West, its going to come down to three teams this year. Denver has a new guy in Josh McDaniels at head coach and Kyle Orton behind center. McDaniels may have brought some of Bill Belicheat's tricks over with him from New England. The Chargers and the Chiefs will give Denver a run for their money, but Denver will come out on top.

NFC

This year, the Giants and the Eagles will fight tooth and nail over the NFC East division title. The NFC East may come down to the last week of the season as to who gets it. I feel that the NFC East may be the best race of the year. As for the NFC South, that division is going to be a toss up between the four teams in the division. Last year, it was between the Falcons and the Panthers. This year it may come down the Buccaneers and the Saints. The NFC South has some potent teams when they want to be. When it comes to the NFC West though, that division is tough to predict because of who can get on a roll and when, Last year, it was the Cardinals and the 6 - 0 mark that they put up against the rest of the division. As for the NFC North, it is gonna come down to the Bears and Vikings again. As of right now, the Packers are nothing with out Favre. However, with an improved Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay might make it a little bit more interesting.

AFC
East - Dolphins (12 -4)
West - Denver (10-6)
North - Steelers(11-5)
South - Tennessee (11-5)

NFC
East - Eagles (13-3)
West - Cardinals (10-6)
North - Vikings (11-5)
South - Buccaneers (12-4)

And just for the fun of it......

The Lions will still be the laughing stock of the NFL and go 3 - 13.

Julian Peterson is now a Lion...just so ya know. The kid out of Wake Forest that they drafted, Curry, looks to be a bigger faster, and younger version of Peterson though...

I saw some tape of him at Camp a couple of days ago...he's a beast. I can't help but see him as a Lawrence Taylor type. Not the pass rusher LT was, though close...but better in coverage. But no knowing until he actually plays...

LOL, I gotta agree with that, as much as it makes me


The Titans are 1-2 versus the Ravens in the playoffs, with the two losses coming at home, in the divisional round, with homefield advantage! Both wins were major upsets..

That is okay, we won't let it happen again.


I think Baltimore will make the 1st wildcard spot, prolly at 11-5 (just lose the division because they can not beat the Steelers). We may even see a rematch of last years Titans-Ravens divisional game.

Oh I see. We dont get NFL news here in Australia.....we have 3 more popular football codes.

Thats ok, hopefully this rookie is better than Julian Peterson.

He looks like he falls into the mold of Patrick Willis and Jared Mayo. A LB that can step in and start right away. Wouldn't be surprised if he win defense rookie of the year. And he better be for the 60 mil that he signed for.

I'm sure I have posted here before ... lol.

I always roll my eyes at schrodingers dogs choice of teams! Jets and Mets :shk: haha.

Anyways, with the latest signing of Michael Vick, I am gonna have to go with my hometown hero's the Philadelphia Eagles.


Superbowl Prediction: Eagles:21 defeat Patriots: 13

You might just have something there. I was thinking the same thing pre Vick. There's a real good chance NE will be there and I think Philly can put it on them if they dig deep and mess with Brady which they're certainly capable of.

I put a little conspiratorial twist on my pick of SD as I really do think a little more than meets the eye goes on behind the scenes in the NFL and the West coast is too big a market to let slide. And from what I see out here nobody cares about two East coast teams playing.

Brett Favre Signs With Vikings!!


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Brett Favre is coming back for more.

The 39-year-old quarterback turned his back on retirement for the second time in as many years, agreeing Tuesday to play for the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings will pay Favre $12 million this year and $13 million next season, according to ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen. The contract does not contain performance bonuses. Because Favre is a vested veteran, the $12 million is guaranteed for this season if he is on the opening day roster. This also applies to the $13 million 2010 deal.



Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

sports.espn.go.com...

This is an absolutely horrible decision by both Favre and the Vikings in my opinion. I do not understand why the analyst and others are saying this makes the Vikings the "real deal". Favre is backed by an at best average passing offense and a very young Vikings team. The 25 million dollar two year contract is also ridiculous in my opinion. Lest we forget Favre is turning 40 this year and the NFC North has the upcoming Packers (with Rogers) and Bears (with Cutler). I do not think Favre will make a difference of more than one game (either way), and in fact could potentially hurt the Vikings more than help. In my humble opinion Favre is doing nothing more than smearing his already Hall of Fame credentials in an attempt to go out on a Super Bowl win. It did not happen last year with the Jets and will not happen this year with the Vikings. I am anxious to see the Packer fans reception of him this year however.

Oh and Vick also signed with the Eagles.......

It's a little odd but Favre is the stereotypical athlete that will never quit on his own. He does bring something to the team and that's a gunslinger (even though he doesn't have the best targets). It opens things up for probably the best running back in the game.

That
I swear if he does this
one more time. He's still one of my favorite players, but come on Favre make up your mind. I think Favre thinks he's the new black, but unfortunately, Tracy Morgan Beat him to it:

I Am The New Black~ Tracy Morgan

But seriously, I understand his delhemia, on a level, he loves the game and the game is him. But he's really making things difficult for the Fantasy Football league and the real football organizations. I mean seriously, the Vikings had to wait and now their is really no more training camp and Favre is just making like difficult....

I still like his heart and game
But not this.

Everyone just needs to get over themselves with jumping all over Favre for coming out of retirement again. Who cares? Why does it really matter how many times he retires and un-retires? If he can still play he can still play.

I'm happy he signed with the Vikings, and I'm a Packers fan. I'm still disappointed in my team letting him go, and the more he can come back to bite them, the better.

Having said that, here is my predictions:

AFC

New England
Pittsburgh
Houston
San Diego
Baltimore [wild card]
Indianapolis [wild card]

NFC

New York
Minnesota
Carolina
Arizona
Philadelphia [wild card]
Green Bay [wild card]

Yeah, I said Houston will win the division. You heard it hear first.

I was waiting for someone with some cojones to show up in this thread!


Houston's got some major firepower on offense, and the defense will be improved. Watch out!!

Also watch and see how fast Connor Barwin replaces high-priced free agent DE Antonio Smith in the starting lineup. Dude's an athletic freak and was a steal in the second round.

Peace

I retract this statement. With football season just a week away I've had a re-awakening and realized just how much I hate the Vikings. Favre is still my boy but at least for this year he's the enemy.

I'm sticking with my Houston statement though. You guys go ahead and jump on your predictable Tennessee and Indianapolis bandwagons but I'm telling you right now their glory days are over (did Tennessee have glory days?).

(did Tennessee have glory days?).


1999: 13-3, AFC Champions
2000: 13-3, Best Record in NFL
2002:11-5, Lost AFC Championship (division champ)
2003: 12-4, Division champ, lost in divisonal round to New England(at NE) by three points
2007: 10-6, Wildcard birth
2008: 13-3, Best record in NFL

Tennessee is the the number three team with the most playoff appearances in the last ten years.
