The Vikings?! Has the NFL done away with the QB position?

The Patriots have way too much offense to not be the overwhelming most likely winner of the Super Bowl.

I expect more emphasis to be placed on peaking in the playoffs this year - instead of going all-out all year long like last year.

Pats are a year older this year, you can play that angle, or the bad taste angle. I am going to go with the year older angle and see what happens. Teams that make the Super Bowl play like **** years afterwards, at least in the NFC

I wouldnt use that rule with the Pats... its not like last year was there first year in the superbowl. I hope they suck but they'll probably be very good and at LEAST make it to the AFC Champ game. I would like them to go 0-16 though personally.

And you should lay the points and take the Giants tonight with your offshore friends. The Skin's suck worse than last year at the moment and enjoy playing in Giant stadium about as much as horses enjoy running in snow.

I thought the line would be closer to 7......4.5 seems pretty lean to me but I defer to Coach

agreed. Colt Brennan looked better than Campball last out. Actually, I feel Colt has a future being a decent NFL QB eventhough he throws weird.

Didn't the Skins make the playoffs LY, knock off TB in TB and have Seattle on the ropes before falling apart late?

I was curious about thoughts on this game...Line has moved from 3.5 to 4.5, but still a tough call I think

I didn't think the Skins had Seattle on the ropes in the playoffs but they did beat a bad TB team. This is a new coach with new ways and a new defensive coordinator that looked to get worse as the (sorry I'll say it) pre-season wore on.......Jansen's been benched because he looked more like a high school kid than an all pro, they kept every single one of the 10 players they drafted, never seen that before from any team. They may be better as the season wears on but they have looked like doggiedodo so far. Anything less than 6 has to be a gift.

The over under for sacks tonight should be five even without the two all pro's the giants lost
