    I think both the Lions and Raiders will be competitve this season.

    Lions have been drafting talented youngsters, I just don't know that much about thier coaching. They've also traded away some problems ie Roy Williams.

    Saints vs Titans

    I've lived in Louisiana and Tennessee and love to always start my NFL season off by predicting this way (got real close with Titans in 99-00 and still can't believe my Saints pulled it off last year).

    Do I really think these two will face each other in the Superbowl? No, but I never thought I would have lived to see the Saints win one either.

    Got to watch the offensive line for the Cowboys a game or so before I wager.

    if the Saints play as shady as they did last year I'll agree with that.

    Ravens are going to have a hell of a team.

    The Raiders will still finish in the middle of the pack.

    The Lions are going to languish in the cellar for another year.

    The Jets will have a solid defense but will struggle to score points and will not make the playoffs.

    The Saints will be a solid team but will fall back to earth a bit. Easily a playoff team.

    Colts will have a 12+ games winning season.

    Brett Favre will have a very bad year and the Vikings will finish mid pack.

    Chargers will make the playoffs.

    Patriots will make the playoffs.

    Agree.

    Agree, which will be a huge improvement over the last few season.

    The Lions are going to languish in the cellar for another year.

    Not so sure about that. I wouldn't be surprised to see them finish ahead of the Bears.

    The Jets will have a solid defense but will struggle to score points and will not make the playoffs.

    Agree, solid D with a weak O.

    The Saints will be a solid team but will fall back to earth a bit. Easily a playoff team.

    Agree, though with a much improved D. Can you say, "Two Dat"

    Colts will have a 12+ games winning season.

    Not so fast, Texans could pull the upset.

    Brett Favre will have a very bad year and the Vikings will finish mid pack.

    Get Tavaris ready, Grandpa might be wishing he was in his treestand instead.

    Chargers will make the playoffs.

    Agree.

    Patriots will make the playoffs.

    Should win the East.
    Giants and Cowboys should make the playoffs too. Packers should win the North.

    I'll be a Steelers and Giants fan this weekend

    Not just me but, America!

    The Super Bowl was the most viewed program ever on American TV with 113 million viewers.


    Thursday's Vikings-Saints opener earned the highest rating for a regular-season, prime-time game in 13 years. NBC said Friday that New Orleans' 14-9 win in a rematch of the NFC
    championship drew a 17.7 overnight rating and 28 share.

    Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time. Overnight ratings measure the country's largest markets.



    Saints = ratings and ratings = money for the networks. P S

    Folks down here are tired of hearing about Katrina! Watched the pregame with some friends last night and when the network aired a Katrina story we were all moaning and rolling our eyes. Seems like all the network producers can't come up with is Katrina . They need to give it a rest!

    The "LOMBARDI" Trophy (named after the GREATEST coach of all time) will return to it's rightful home:

    1265 Lombardi Ave.

    Home of the GREEN BAY PACKERS, the standard by which all others are measured!!
