NFL Football

Well we have had two wonderful weeks of NFL professional football and I have come to a couple of conclusions:

1. The Kansas City Chiefs are not very good, but will improve as the year goes on, and bite some good team in the butt sometime during the season.

2. It's going to be a long year for Browns, Bucs, Panthers, Lion and Jaguar fans, as well as Chiefs and Raiders fans. Raiders could bite some one's butt too, like the Chiefs.

3. San Francisco will win the NFC west. Seattle can't win without their QB Hassleback healthy, and the Cardinals will regress and disappoint.

4. New England may just have too much to overcome this year with Brady rust and too many changes on defense.

5. The New York Giants are the class of the NFC east; Tony Romo kills Dallas with turnovers and inconsistent play and the Redskins need a real QB. Philly could surprise, but a lot depends on their four headed QB monster.

6. Denver has surprised so far, but they haven't played anybody.

7. Baltimore and Pittsburgh are still tough.

8. Detroit will win at least one game. Matthew Stafford looks like the real deal at QB.

9. Titans are 0-2 and something of a defensive mystery at this point.

10. Green Bay will lose out to Minnesota if they cannot keep Aaron Rodgers upright and in one piece.

11. Which Jake Cutler? (Maybe it's his blood glucose!)

12. Miami looked over matched at times with Indy, but almost won due to good strategy. Never count out a team in the Parcells family tree. Colts' Payton Manning is Payton Manning; they might as well start on his HOF bust now.

13. New York Jets look good right now. Defense is awesome. Can rookie QB lightening strike again?

14. Some teams, it's hard to tell how they'll go--Buffalo (buried behind Jets and Pats, but improved team), San Diego (will win AFC west,as it is not likely Denver will continue at current pace), Bears (see #11), Falcons (no soph jinx for Ryan?) and Houston (the team that burns prognosticators every year).

15. New Orleans' offense is sick. Drew Brees is as good as I have always thought he was. If the Saints play middling defense that can rise up at times, they'll go all the way.

16. It's possible that the Mizzou Tigers are a better football team than the St. Louis Rams.

Okay, fearless prognostications forthcoming--well seasoned in case I have to eat them.
