OK NFL fans, the time is now!

Who is your favorite team? How will they do this year? How will your division end up? Who will be in the Superbowl?

Favorite team: Check the avatar

I think they'll go 9-7. With luck 10-6 and be a wild card. Defense is solid. I know they will be in the top 3 again this year. Special teams were great last year. Big question mark is JP Losman. If he doesn't make too many mistakes as first year quarterback they should do fine.

As far as the division, It's a fight between Bills, Jets, and Patriots. New England looks like a well oiled machine again after watching the game thursday.

Superbowl: It's New England's to lose again. They just may 3 peat. Baltimore Ravens are sticking in my head this year as a possible AFC team. And of course, the Colts. I think the Eagles will be there too if T.O. can keep his mouth shut. Happy Sundays!!!!!!

I'm all revved up for another season of the Washington Redskins sucking. I pick well below .500 record.

Worst owner in football. He's a raging d**chebag, he gouges us for absolutely everything. Despite the constant losing/mediocre seasons, the Redskins are the most profitable franchise in football b/c he squeezes every penny. That's everything- tickets, food, beer, and merchandise. The cowboys and pats probably have us beat in merchandise sales, but Snyder is killing us on the rest. He's a little rich boy who's getting to live his dream: owning a football team. Can we trade Dan Snyder?

Skins kick it off against Chicago at one today.

The Cardiac Cats are back! All of our injured playmakers are back in action, we have the best D in the league, and (arguably) the best Offensive line - plus, I would say we have the deepest bench in the league.

I predict we will take the NFC South, and perhaps the Conference Title, and... aw heck - Superbowl XL !!!!



GO PANTHERS!!!!!

The Pats are finally going down, and I'll be loving every minute of it. Losing Bruschi was a fatal blow. Now it's the Colts' turn and all of this "Dan Marino" crap will finally stop.

I don't see how the Eagles can make it to the Super Bowl with one good receiver and a bunch of stiffs. Then again, the rest of the NFC sucks, so who is going to beat them? Atlanta is the best candidate, but I'm not convinced. I don't think Vick is ready yet.

Super Bowl XL: Colts over Eagles.

Must be nice to own a billion dollar franchise. I think if he kept his nose out of things more and let Gibbs do his job the team would be better off.

Well, they are winning right now!

They actually won, a defensive battle. You're right, he's a brilliant business man, but he knows NOTHING about football. Example: Deion Sanders. He knew tons of people would shell out bucks to come see Neon Deion play again. Any idiot could have told him, however, that Deion was in no way capable of being the star Snyder wanted him to be at that time.

Does Joe Namath still play for the Jets? If he does I'm a Jets fan.

bleah. I got tired of watching people throw the game, ref making bad calls and refusing to put instant replay in on the games because they know that they would then be forced to make fewer "wrong" calls in favor of the "designated winner."

The Bills are my favorite - I agree with the 9-7 since they have a rookie QB and a bad offensive line.

The Falcons looked scary good Monday night. Anybody catch the Vick and Dunn show in the 1st half? Yikes!

I'm looking forward to the Pats/Cats superbowl rematch next Sunday... (wanna wager, hi565?)
Two of my good friends are going to that game in Charlotte... the bastages!! Wish I was going, too.

Been a big KC Chiefs fan since I was a little kid 30 years ago. Still a big fan even though they have sucked big time lately. I'm guessing this will be another banner year of vacuum, but after seeing the first game against the Jets, they actually looked fairly good. Hoping for a good year, but I'm not holding my breath.

I'm somewhat envious.
I live in Detroit, and as everyone knows, we don't have a professional football team here.
Our Sundays are spent working in the yard and talking about the latest Michigan Wolverine unexpected, season-ruining, national-championship-chance-spoiling loss.

Luckily, I didn't attend U of M, so I thrive on it.

But NFL? That stands for 'Not Following the Lions'.

Vick and Dunn were impressive however, Eagles big run stopper, Jerimiah Trotter, got thrown out before the game started. Combined with McNabb's first quarter injury and maybe Atlanta wasn't as impressive as they might seem. No doubt, the Eagles are horrible against the run without Trotter and Vick is a force to be recconed with. Great game regardless of the score.

E-A-G-L-E-S all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, American football has more impressive (expensive) talent than Canadian ball, but it has way too much hype and WAY too many running plays.

"Another three-yard run for Faulk, it's second and seven, and he is HAMMERING this Packers defensive line."

"Oh, absolutely, Dan, he can run the ball ALL DAY."

And I have the feeling he will, too…

Oh, and a note to the sportcasters: Anyone who is running is keeping their legs moving, by definition. Don't feel obligated to point that out.

(If anyone has a diverging opinion, I'd be delighted to hear it)

I admit it, i'm a Bengals fan, have been since '89. My brother was a 49ers fan, so naturally i had to root the Bungles. Let's be honest though, they're not going to win the division, most likely 2nd to the Ravens, if not 3rd to the Steelers. Best i can hope for is a winning record and a wild card berth. At the very least they finally won a season opener

The scary part was the pre-game show on ESPN. Actually, it was pretty exciting. Maybe the NFL can market pre-game cage matches between the players! Actually, It was funny watching that official throw a flag during the pre game warm up.

Those players weren't doing anything more than what happens on the field every single play. I thought it was a little much to eject them from the game.

If it was Michael Vick involved do you think he would have been tossed? Tagliabue would have been on the phone in 5 seconds telling them to reverse their decision .

This season, the Packers shall suck. I predict (and I hope I am very, very wrong), that we will go 7-9 or 6-10. We shall see destruction and humiliation not witnessed in these parts since the 1980s. I have young cousins who don't remember those days... they've only seen the Packers win. Welcome to the party, kids.

Okay... it might not be that bad, but it will be a long season. I'd call it a rebuilding year, but I'm not sure what they're rebuilding with.

I'll still pull for the Redskins, despite the worst management outside of the LA Clippers. I'm not a fairweather fan. I do think they will suck, 8-8 at best. I do think Joe Gibbs may need to go back to NASCAR after this season too.

Like others I know, the New Orleans Saints are a sympathic favorite this year. They don't have a practice facilty of thier own, thier stadium has been condemed, and the city they represent is in ruin. They won thier first game over a heavily favorite Carolina. Their first home game is Monday night in Meadowlands, NJ.
