They will win on Oct 19.
You're just jealous. The Fins have the Tuna now. Henne will be ready by then. that is a blowout. The biggest threat is gonna be losing twice to the sorry ass Browns. we also have the Raiders at home. that could be tricky. But as long as Flucko is in there. we can flourish where your boys failed.
Playing the AFC South & the NFC East helps the cause.

I saw they named Joe Flacco the starter. How did Smith look in pre-season?
He only played about 3 quarters. I wanted him to play. we would have been bad anyway. But I'd like to see him get a chance. Flucko is trash. Our line is awful so Flucko should be hurt soon enough. Hopefully Troy goes in before harrington.

Their schedule is kind of soft, and the tough teams they play they get at home, so they have a shot in those games, too.
Their road games out of their division are against the shitty Chiefs and Broncos, yes.
Also, Earnest Graham is a fucking stud. That guy never loses yards, which is something most people don't even think about when they look at running backs. He always at least gains 2. He doesn't break the big gain as much, but I would rather have him consistently getting 4 yards than getting gains of 12, 5, 0, -4, 6, 3, -5 all game. Fuck that shit.
I hope the whole Favre thing didn't fucking piss Jeff Garcia off to the point of where he plays shitty. He played awesome last year and I hope to God he doesn't get hurt or fuck up so we get stuck with Brian Griese.
The defense looks as solid as it ever has the last few years. The Bucs are just tremendous talent evaluators on defense. Greg White they got from like the Arena Football League and he makes like 300k a year and is a natural raw pass rusher. He had a lot of sacks last year for being his first opportunity to really play in the NFL. Barrett Ruud is slowly becoming a stud at linebacker and always finds a way to pile up tackles. Jermaine Phillips was fantastic last year. Tanard Jackson, a late second day pick, made a huge difference as a rookie. Gaines Adams is getting some experience and considering he was a first round pick by Tampa Bay on defense, there is no way he doesn't become a Pro Bowler. Their linebacking corps of Brooks-June-Ruud is pretty fucking good, although Brooks will be taking more plays off this year. I wish we could have signed John Lynch for a little money because he is one of the smartest guys in the NFL and could really help out with this young defense.
Also, although they overpaid for Jeff Faine, they really needed a good addition to the offensive line which was their weak point the last four to five years or so, ever since the Super Bowl win. Ever since Jeff Christy retired, center has been a tough spot.

Lions -3 looks solid.
The Cowboys line has moved from 4 to 5.5, and the Browns might be a team that should be underdogs at home to no one. Then again, they also might be a big disappointment. I feel that their secondary cannot stop TO, Witten, and Crayton, but I don't think I'm going to make a big play.
I also think the Seahawks are a super bowl contender and will beat the Bills in week 1.
Man, those are all road teams. I also could get taken to the cleaners....but, that's the NFL.

St Louis Rams in the NFC. I think the Rams can improve alot from last year. They had so many injuries. Howie Long`s son should be very good. Bulger is a good accurate QB but the OL gotta stay in it.

Eli is lucky he only finished with 1 pick, he was decent but some of his passes looked really forced.
Brandon Jacobs & Plaxico Burress are fucking beasts though.
