    Agree 100%. Dallas is the most talented team in the league this year. I think injuries to Romo or Owens could be very painful, but other than that their depth is outstanding everywhere else.

    Superbowl win #6 baby!

    I'd take that bet anyday. Dallas has nothing for New England. They were blown out last year, and will be again.

    I wouldn't expect this year to be any different. I'll expect my beer pronto upon the new england stomping of dallas yet again.

    You're acting like the final score meant it wasn't a close game. When the game was tied in the 3rd quarter you can't tell me you weren't on the edge of your seat. It was a tight game. NE didn't score their last TD until inside the last 2 minutes when all they had to do was sit on the ball for the win.

    Listen - It was a good game, but 48-27 isn't a close game either in the end. Romo sealed their own fate with that costly interception. Nothing is certain in football, so i'm glad they drove the stake through dallas with that final touchdown.

  10. Why is everyone all over Cleveland's nuts this year? They had one decent season of Derek Anderson chucking the ball as far down field as he could and someone catching it. They added a few defensive players, but when is the last time Shaun Rogers put up a stellar season? They have possibilities, but they are not the best team in the AFC North. If you recall the Pittsburgh Steelers stomped them twice last year, and now they upgraded their offense with the likes of Mendenhall and Sweed. They have two linebackers from the draft two years ago, Timmons and Woodley who will be starting this year. Troy Polamalu will be back and healthy this year. They are without a shadow of doubt the strongest and most complete AFC North team. Even with a fairly weak OL Ben Roethlisburger had a breakout year.

    Sigh, but keep placing the Browns at the top of the division. See how that stands at the end of this season when the Browns are once again 0-2 versus Pittsburgh.

    Yes I am a Steelers fan, but I'm getting tired of everyone dismissing them because they fell off at the end of last year. They still only barely lost to Jacksonville in the playoffs and they were at 60% at best. I'm not saying they are a shoe in for the big game, because they aren't even close. But they are legitimate playoff contenders and without a doubt will be the Division winner this year...again...

    Agreed, it was a good game. Not saying the Cowboys should have won that game by any stretch. However, New England took some hits in the secondary and Dallas upgraded their secondary big time. If these two teams meet in the Superbowl, Dallas will have them outclassed this year.

    We'll see about that.

    Brady is the x-factor that weighs the heaviest overall. If he's on his game, it's lights out. He's proven to do it even with a mediocre offense in the past.

    As for the D, new england always finds a way to plug its holes. Losing samuel was big, but the addition of tank williams will help out there. Jerod Mayo is a solid young LB that should see some playing time.

    You can expect their defense to be more than adequate. Belichick is known to make even an average defense play/look very good.

    The pats offense will ride them right back into the playoffs again this year.

    Tough schedule and all.

  14. New England will have trouble this year, they got exposed in the SuperBowl. The only thing that saves them is their division is just awful.

    Agreed, Pitt will own that division. I can't wait to see Mendenhall hawk goal line carries as well ahah.

    With the schedule the Steelers have they will be lucky to come out @ .500.

    Yea but the Browns have an identical schedule with the only real difference being they play the Colts instead of the Patriots.

    True BOTH teams will get banged up. The team with least injuries will take it.

    Exposed? They didn't play well in certain areas i'll give you that, but whatever, they lost so i'm over it. As bad as New England played, they still almost pulled it off.

    An undefeated season alone speaks volumes of their success. Sure they didn' t win the superbowl which was devestating given the season they had, but when's the next time you'll see an undefeated team in the nfl again? Probably not in our lifetime.

    You can bet you'll see the pats in the playoffs yet again this year.

    Exposed is definitely over the top. I don't think anyone here would argue they the Giants were better than the Pats. The Pats were the best team of '07 hands down, and I'd argue that they were the one of the best teams of all time. 18-1 is no joke and they're still favorites to win the superbowl this year if you look at the vegas oddsmakers.

    During the third week i almost placed a vegas bet on the pats winning it all. Parlay it every week, and the end result would have been some serious cash. Man, if i had done it, and then they won the superbowl.......

    Remember the obnoxious 24 point spreads? I made money of the 20+ pt spreads a couple of times.

    I think the pats put a little too much into games early in the season and ran out of gas.

    pick em leagues were insanely easy last year thanks to that.

    You can only be a one sided offense for so long, aka go without a running game, before you will be put to the limit (weeks 10-16 iirc). Pats were lucky Brady could drop back blind folded and find Randy deep or Welker over the middle every damn play.

    My question for Pats fans on here (or rather John) do you think Maroney is going to bounce back, or is he in for a follow up junior year slump? Even if he stays healthy?

    Maroney is my favorite kind of back........ballz to the wall! The guy is a power runner that gets it done. I really don't think he'll hit the slump, but who knows. Brady has enough weapons to do what he needs to.

    I'm a huge advocate however of a team having a solid running game. Kevin Faulk should help add a good dynamic to the running game.

  25. I thought they were that good also, but Giants have an outstanding defensive line and that's what it took, pressure Brady and he's not going anywhere. If you look back in history there have been better defensive lines that the Giants,(Old Steelers, 85 Bears, DoomsDay) it would have been the same story against those defenses.
