    Why?

    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.

    AFC
    East:patriots (unfortunately)
    South:Colts
    West:Chargers (see previous note)
    North: Browns
    WC:Jaguars
    WC:Broncos (barely, by tiebreaker)

    NFC:
    East:Cowboys
    South:Saints
    West:Seahawks (really any other options?)
    North: Vikings
    WC: Panthers
    WC: Giants

    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?

    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.
