    Maybe in bizarro world. In the real world, rooting for the patriots is like rooting for the Death Star

    tautologically rooting against the Patriots is rooting against America. FACT.

    i'm fearful of a down ravens season this year. i think it's pretty conceivable they miss the playoffs. too much turnover on offense, not enough new impact on defense, no cornerbacks.

    Ricky Williams to the Ravens. Here's hoping he can stay away from the dope and still has something left in the tank. Not sure I see the risk vs. reward in this one, but I am hopeful.

    Ricky's an old man, but his post-college mileage is pretty low considering he was in a timeshare most of his career. I still don't see the benefit of signing older backs these days, reminds me of fred taylor to the pats. Better off taking a look at the undrafteds imo.
    But to get this thread on track, who's excited to see the Buffalo Bills back to the superbowl this year? The Amish Rifle Fitzpatrick is gonna be a beast.

    Everyone's undefeated in the pre-season (including the Bills!!!).

    Old backs usually know how to pass protect and catch passes better than young backs.

    After last night's performance, not sure how the Patriots won't win the Super Bowl.

    You heard it here first, folks.

    I'm a huge Pats fan but c'mon, it was 1 game with very few starters playing on either side. I hope they win it all but that's crazy talk. There are several very strong teams in the NFL with NE being one of them but don't forget about Green Bay, New York, New Orleans, Dallas (maybe) and Philadelphia. A few others can be thrown in as well.

    Patriots have a lot of unanswered questions. That defense was still weaker than the numbers showed last year. And they were exposed in the first playoff game. They have brought in a zillion castoffs but they still need big time players. Maybe they have them now, but we will see. And they are still lacking WR help to stretch defenses. Brady was magnificant last year but they are left with Walker, Branch and more castoffs.

    Maybe some of the new guys will come through in a big way but right now, Patriots defense looks much weaker than Steelers and Jets.

    And can smart money be betting against Eagles or Packers?

    Any speculation as to Maclin's mystery illness? There was supposed to be an announcement today, but nothing so far (that I've seen).

    The whole thing is very odd. Putting football aside, hope it's nothing life-altering.

    I'd start one if people will actually show up to the online draft and keep track of their teams

    As I have no particular interest in football, I just dropped in to say that I'm looking forward to another loosing season for the Miami Dolphins. I'm quite sure that Reggie Bush will be the answer to all their problems.
