    It was the giant's day, and they won that game. I don't take away from that. However, you can't tell me that New England played their best game by ANY means either. That's why they play the games though. The pats were caught on an off day and lost......barely

    I think the pats put a little too much into games early in the season and ran out of gas.
    Man when i look back at it.....wow!

    Although it goes much, much deeper than this; it must have been a fell of a thing to be such a favorite in a super bowl. I know I would hate being expected to win, and on such a grand scale as that. You win its expected, you loose your a goat. In the words of Cartman, lammmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeee.

    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.
    Although Billy B made the correct decision by a mile (and this guy didn't warrant a 7th pick) but imagine if the Pats somehow managed to get Mendenhall. Talk about a double punch of a bruiser to another hardcore bruiser. That'd combo would be the demise of the age old defense during practice ahah.

    5.5 weeks gents, and training camps are on the fringe of opening!!! Can't wait.

    Oh ya, who is going to watch Hard Knocks this year on HBO on the Cowboys? I absolutely loved last years on the Cheifs (even being a die hard Broncos fan). I was so pumped to watch the Cowboys this year, but have no HBO is this damn interim rental. I am pissed. Who is going to update me?

  7. my NFL prediction? The 49ers will still suck and STILL be using 'rebuilding the franchise' as a cop out for sucking.

    agreed. patriots will keep cheating and maybe belichick will buy a new pair of sweatpants. adam jones will stab TO in practice..(please u people think he will change)..tony homo will finally come out of the closet..the lions will have their first winning season since like 2000. the dolphins will all go on next seasons dancing with the stars after they go 0-16. and the giants..were talking a minimum 8-peat here.

    Ha ha, your wrong about the Dolphins my friend. I'm not a Dolphins fan, but you can quote me on this, " The Dolphins will be considered the most improved team in football @ .500 +." They have alot of talent, and lost most of their games by 3 points. With new leadership, and a better offensive line they will have a winning season.

    nah..well if they win 2 games they will be the most improved..but the best crappy team from last year will either be detroit or arizona. they don't really have that much talent...still think they shoulda taken brady quinn over ted ginn jr. and first they hafta find a leader....parcells can lead in the office and off the field..but u need someone on the field to slap people around and lead the way

  11. As the NFL goes nowadays last years worst could be this years surprise playoff team. btw, the Patriots last year was this generations Titantic and the Giants perfectly illustrated the "any given day" mantra.

    thats right thanks for the giants love! they werent afraid of them and did exactly what teams should have been doing...going straight at them. looking at ur avatar ur a steelers fan? if i was in the AFC i would be extremely worried about them this year. they r gonna do alot of damage

    They will improve, but no way .500 +. I think 7-9 is very ambitious for them. They have some young talent, but its a new system and it will take a couple of years for them to be playoff caliber.

    We'll see. Just don't be suprised if thats all you hear about is how good the Dolphins are playing, and blah blah blah most improved team in football blah blah blah. I really don't care either way. It's just a prediction that I feel strongly about, but like I said we shall see. Oh did I forget to mention that I love the game of football? Can't wait till opening week

    Hell yeah! How bad is it that I get pumped for pre-season games this time of year?

    I'm not worried at all about the Steelers. They ran out of gas last year, it showed in the game against the Jets I don't think that will happen again. I won't go as far as to say that they will win it all but, they will be heard from. btw, I lived in New Jersey from 77-96 and have been to Giant's Stadium many times. It was cool to see them win especially the way they did it.


    :bruce3:

  17. as a steelers fan myself, I have to agree, they will be heard from. my only concern is they have a rough schedule. I am happy to say I think the bengals and ravens will be terrible, so that makes me optimistic

  18. What a good way to start the year. With my Yankees stuck in neutral at least the Steelers got off to a good start with a whipping of the Texans. The O-Line looked good against a solid but not spectacular Texans d-line, and fast Willie looks like his old self with more td's today then all of last year. So happy to have him and Ben on my fantasy team.

    AS I said in one of my earlier posts, the Steelers are in the second year of the new offense and therefore much more comfortable with it. The defense made me very happy today. Other than the cosmetic
    TD's at the end of the game, they beat the crap out of the Texans.

    :bruce3:

  20. got to agree, teh d looked good albeit against a weak texans o. I am curious to see how well the D performs agains tthe Browns in Cleveland next week. D has never been the problem, and with all the extra firepower on O, and the Brady injury (dont know how severe) this could be a good year

  21. In observation of some other games

    1. Chad should have kept his Johnson, the Bengals are Ocho Stinko

    2. Tom Brady hurt but Pats sill win. Until the extent of the injury is known, not a big deal

    3. Watch out for Philly, McNab and crew look very sharp (my boys see them in week 3)

    4. Atlanta in surprisingly easy win over Detroit.

    5. Buffalo, don't sleep on them

    6. Jets win but ran out of gas towards the end of the game, came close to losing.

    7. Tennesee slapped Jacksonville around, somewhat of a surprise.

    8. Saints overcome Gustav and Tampa Bay in one week.

    Can't wait for the rest of the games, Good opening day

    :bruce3:

  22. very good opening day, and for buffalo as long as Lynch is healthy Jauron will have them pounding the ball.

  23. Buffalo looked very solid today. I think they're going to suprise a lot of people.

    I can't f'in believe brady is hurt already. Hopefully the MRI will show no structural damage so my boy can get back on the field. Cassell actually impressed me for once today though. The goal line stand by the pats to end the game was very nice indeed.

  24. any news on Brady, or will Bellicheck keep everyone in the dark till 2 minutes prior to game time?

  25. According to NFL Network Tom Brady could be done for the season with a torn ACL. The AFC East just got a lot closer.
