    Because stuff always happens - the league is just too unpredictable, and it's not like Houston has a sustained track record of success. Last year was the first year they lived up to expectations. ...

    Maybe so, but they play in an awful division - it's possible that Tennessee can make some noise and surprise some people, but I'm not expecting much out of the Jags or Colts unless Andrew Luck is...

    Really, though, it's July - is there really hype for ANYBODY at this point except maybe the Broncos, the Jets, and maybe the Bears?

    I haven't heard much about the Pats or Steelers this offseason...

    There hasn't been a lot of hype for the Giants as the defending Super Bowl champions, but a lot of that is a function of the fact that they were a 9-7 team that was outscored in aggregate during the...

    I picked Green Bay vs Baltimore in the Super Bowl before the season so I guess I'll stick with it.

    Houston over Cincinnati
    New Orleans over Detroit

    Looks like we're going to have exactly six repeat playoff teams last year, with New England and perhaps Pittsburgh as the only repeat division winners.

    Denver and Cincinnati need to make the...

    It looks like there's a clear cut top 3 in each conference (Green Bay, SF, New Orleans in the NFC and New England, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore in the AFC) and then a whole lot of mediocrity after that....

    I don't think San Francisco is a good matchup for the Seahawks. For Seattle to win, they have to run the ball well with Marshawn Lynch and you can't run on the 49ers. I think it will be a close,...

    I was nervous about the KC game once I found out that Kyle Orton was starting. Tyler Palko was absolutely terrible, but Kyle Orton is a legitimate NFL QB and the Chiefs aren't THAT bad a team. They...

    The Minnesota Vikings finish second in the NFC North - the Bears fall to 5-11 and Lovie Smith is fired and Jay Cutler is traded to the Redskins.

    A lot of people talk about how difficult it is to repeat. One big reason for that is that everything usually breaks right for a team when they win the Super Bowl - they stay healthy, the ball...

    I don't consider 3-4 point teams to be underdogs... I'll go with the Seattle Seahawks. It's not clear to me what the Niners have done to be considered 6.5 point favorites over anybody.

    As much as it pains me to say it, the Steelers have the better chance to return to the playoffs for one reason - the AFC North plays the NFC West. Playing against the NFC West almost guarantees the...
