The Swami is back for another season of intermittent blogging on the subject of handicapping, especially as it pertains to the National Football League.

It's is time for the best time of the year.
This year we planned on two hours, but instead, we did three.
Two podcasts were needed for this season:
1. Intro (0-9 minute mark)
2. AFC East (9-30)
3. AFC South (31-50)
4. AFC West (51-1:11)
5. AFC North (1:11-1:30)

East: Eagles. I don't trust the Cowboys, Giants are already incredibly beat up on defense, and all I need to say is John Beck/Rex Grossman for Washington.
North: Packers. Easy pick. I think Minnesota will be better then last year, the Bears will be worse, and Detroit will make noise, but fall shy of the playoffs.
South: Falcons. Saints

But, that's wrong.
Well, not totally wrong. An elite QB is good, though you can win
