With the preseason behind us it's time to start the real thread for the season, isn't it?
GO TEAM THATS PLAYOFF HOPES DEPEND ON ONE MAN'S BLOOD SUGAR CONTENT!
Woo! Kick that blood sugar contents @$$!
Bungles cut Rudi johnson
Falcons cut Joey Harrington
I bet he gets a 2nd string job with a team with an injured quarterback and he'll start this year.
Rudi averaged UNDER 3 yards a carry last year I think. I'd cut myself after that (no emo).
And Rudi's been injured quite a bit lately as well.
I want whatever you are drinking/smoking/inhaling.
J. Harrington to Baltimore
R. Johnson to Detroit

AFC championship game: Patriots over Jaguars
NFC championship game: Buccaneers over Cowboys
Superbowl: Pats over Bucs
West:Chargers (see previous note)

West:Seahawks (really any other options?)
AFC championship game: Patriots over Chargers (my least favourite game of the year, take II)
NFC championship game: Vikings over Saints
Superbowl: Vikings over Patriots
Defense wins championships, and the vikings have a great D. Jared Allen coming in is great, and also the addition of Berrian makes Jackson a little less mediocre. Peterson and Taylor together make a great RB tandem, and although i am not a fan, they look pretty good. and besides, if the bears can make it out of the NFC with Rex Grossman...
Tatum Bell steals Rudi Johnsons bags after being cut--how can he think any team will welcome him in their lockeroom after this?
Think of the great lockeroom jokes:
Tatum: you couldn't carry Rudi's jockstrap--matter of fact I just did the other day
Tatum carrys enough bagage around, why does he need more?
You could've picked my Rams? That would've made me smile....
That would have made me laugh Eagles in the east, and everyone else is of little consequence because no team put in front of the green and white will stand a chance.
The quote in my signature BEGS TO DIFFER
being a european newb, my predictions:
oh, and 7-9 or 6-10 for the giants.
Daunte Culpepper retires
