    Pretty sure that title's going to the Eagles, unfortunately. Again.

    Chicago WR corps is looking deadly and versatile.

    -Big guys: Marshall and Jeffery
    -Reliable slot: Bennett
    -Blazing fast after the catch: Hester and Knox (if he comes back)
    -Pass catching RB: Forte

    Tempting, but personally, I know the hours I'd put into it would be better spent on other things. You guys should do it though.

    Well they were going up against the Redskins' secondary, so they are not as good as they looked. :satisfied: That said, I think the Bears are the second-best team in the NFC. Cutler is a very good QB, a step below the top QBs (Rodgers, Brees, Brady, E. Manning, Roethlisberger) and probably somewhere in the 6-10 range.

    Imagine where the Bears would be if they had kept Greg Olsen. (Traded for a 3rd round pick!?!?!!!!)

    Colts look better thus far than I expected. Luck shows promise.

    The Pats got the Olympic gold medal sprinter (4x100) from UFL. If he can actually last in football (he's a bit undersized at 5'11" 190) he should be extremely fun to watch.

    He's more like 5'7" 175 and he only ran in the prelims for the 4x100 but still faster than like 99% of all football players in the NFL.

    Ah, you're right. I am completely misremembering his background. He's going to get eaten in pro football at 175, holy shit.

    As a Seahawks fan I can't help feeling a bit giddy right now. I know it's just the preseason, but the defense is looking great and Russell Wilson is the early steal of the draft.
