    We can all agree there are many excellent black quarterbacks.

    There are some damn good black running backs who for some reason play the quarterback position.

    I am more concerned about the Eagles having a head coach AND a Defensive Coordinator who are both gingers. I wonder if any team has ever won the Super Bowl with that combination. I think not.

    Giants look like absolute shit in pre-season. Really not happy.

    As a fan without a home team (How can LA really not have a football team?), I have been a Bucs fan for years since Warrick Dunn came out of FSU. I do not feel this is going to be a good year, and do not understand why a) how many years does/will it take to find a decent qb, and b) this 2-2-1 RB crap with Cadillac as the #1. I've always liked Cadillac when he's been on the field, but why throw Ward so much cash if he's you're supposed number 2 in a 3 back timeshare?

    The Seahawks are either going to go 6-10 or 10-6. I haven't really figured it out yet.

    I have to say how impressed i am by belicheck's ruthlessness in getting his defense younger. The whole old core of that defense is gone:

    Bruschi - retired
    Vrabel - traded
    Seymour - traded


    Will be interesting to see how it works out, but it's a huge turnover of guys who were once instrumental to their championships and are all definitely past their primes. Will be interesting to see if the new young guys have the leadership skills. After I heard about the seymour trade, I assumed it was to clear the decks and see if one of the young guys would emerge.

    Thinking big thoughts for my packers and can't wait for Sunday night.

    I'm pumped on how the Packers looked preseason. The offense has looked damn good with Rodgers putting in impressive performances in every game. I was a bit concerned about the switch to the 3-4 on defense, but so far it looks like it's working well. I'm expecting a solid showing in the playoffs though I doubt they'll go all the way.

    I'm not gonna hype the Skins up this year. We're pretty much going to be in shambles. And if we do 8-8 or better this year, I'll be ecstatic.

    Where's the Bears love coming from? They have no legit receiving threat outside their TE and their secondary is very suspect...

    a QB who doesnt lose the game for you is a very valuable asset, and a welcome upgrade

    People around here are talking Vikings in the SuperBowl.

    I am not kidding. I don't think they are, either.

    This is probably their best chance since 98. I still don't know how they blew it that year.

    Cutler is nasty. Honestly I think he'll end up being one of the best qbs in the league. The QB makes the receiving threats....just look at Brady and all his championships. His best wideout was Deion Branch...

    It's the fucking Vikings; they've been breaking hearts annually since 1961.

    I seriously do not understand how these idiots I live among continue to be fans.

    You live in NY but are a Cowboys fan? Sounds pretty suspect.

    Go Eagles![​IMG]


    I became interested in football around 1991, when I was 7. What can I say, I was a front-running little bastard. I can proudly say I stuck with the 'Boys through the last two decades of pathetic results, including what is it, thirteen years without a playoff victory? So in that sense I've earned my fan stripes (stars?).

    Well, at least you admit it. Still, as a personal rule I cannot respect someone who has a perfectly good local team and chooses to root for another ("perfectly good" being a bit of a misnomer in this case, of course, as we are talking about the Giants.)

    Rules for being a true fan...

    According to Mr. Simmons, mstyles = not a true fan per rule 18.

    Those rules are pretty good. There's a potential issue in that he doesn't define "formative years" or what happens if you move during those years.

    On a related note, as it pertains to #6, I am thankful every day that I decided to buy the Victorino jersey over the Lidge jersey.
