Rams-5-11

Rams (3-13)

St Louis 3-13

St Louis (3-13)

It's good to see that $50 million guaranteed was well spent. <_<

After a 1-15 season if the Rams win 5 games, they are heading in the right direction especially with a rookie QB who missed most of the 2009 NCAA season with an injury.

Help me out here, Flame. First you give us this rant about how legendary the Falcons will be this year....

Also, whatifsports.com has the Falcons going 6-10. In the words of T.I., "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA That's a funny one." The Falcons went 9-7 last year after almost every major player on that team got hit with injury.

But thennnn....

I'm not even gonna bother trying to predict what's gonna happen in the NFL, because of all the big pro sports in North America, this league is probably the most volatile.

So what I've gathered is that any team can finish anywhere in today's NFL -- except for the Atlanta Falcons, who are are exempt from parity. Gotcha! ;)

I knew someone was gonna point it out, lol. I don't care. The Falcons could easily go 5-11 because they're the Falcons. Bad stuff tends to happen to them on the regular. So you can take my all-over-the-place post as this: I'm prepared for anything but more for victory. :P

Also, from Jay "Tell me the last time I lied, I'll tell you the last time the Cubbies went wire-to-wire" Glazer, a quick tweet on the status of Ageless Waffle Brett Favre:

Favre has told teammates he will NOT play this season, citing wear and tear on his body. Team is hoping he will change his mind

Which will probably happen between now & 5.

Favre ready to call it quits

Brett Favre's wavering nature makes it impossible to call anything official -- even when it seems to be that way -- but NFL sources said the quarterback began informing Vikings personnel late Monday night that he has decided to retire for a third time.

Article.

The Falcons finishing 9-7 are precisely why they won't finish any higher than 8-8 this year. Atlanta has never had three consecutive winning seasons in the NFL.

Before last year, they hadn't had two consecutive winning seasons.

Before last year, the Saints had never won a Super Bowl.

Before last year, a Manning had never lost a Super Bowl.

Before I moved to Baltimore, I had never lived in Baltimore. The point is, just because it hasn't happened doesn't always mean it can't/won't.

That's the best logic I've heard from any poster, Jigga. By the way, the Falcons will at least win a wild card slot. I just have to pick the NFC North, South, and West.

Here's a few things to expect from me about the upcoming NFL season...

-New Orleans will suffer a letdown from their Super Bowl winning season... If you can call an 11-5 season a letdown. They look like the best team in the NFC right now, but with the crapshoot nature that is the NFL there are no guarentees that the Saints will repeat.

-Washington will compete for a Wild Card. There's not enough to beat Dallas and/or Philadelphia for the NFC East, but with one of them being a Wild Card team, the Redskins have enough on offense to possibly take the other Wild Card. That is, if they can get the offense going. The defense isn't an issue even with Albert Haynesworth suffering from an acute case of Wimpy-Ass-Itis.

-San Francisco will finally break through and win the NFC West... with 9 wins. Yeah, the NFC West sucks that much.

-Ocho Cinco and T.O. will make Cincinnati look good for a few weeks before other teams start to figure that double teaming both of them is the key. By Week 8, Mount Owens blows up and the Bengals start to falter, barely missing out on the postseason thanks to a red hot Houston team.

-Rex Ryan will become the NFL version of Ozzie Guillen, even with a few cheap shots towards New England. As for his Jets, they take the AFC East only to be the 'paper tigers' many think that they are.

Well give him some time its his first season and he might not even play

Which is not a good way to spend $50 million.

Ok so I do this every year and I'm nearly always wrong, but oh well. Here goes. Yeah some are a bit out there:

The Packers are going to disappoint. Vikings are winning that division with or without Favre. Green Bay will find the biggest thorn in their sides is Detroit.

So will the 49ers... But they still won't be as disappointing as the rest of the division. They'll win the division and get crushed in the first round of the playoffs.

Houston won't disappoint. They'll play the best ball they ever have in their history, and still miss the playoffs. The Colts are still the Colts.

The Oakland Raiders will give everybody fits in what will show to be the weakest division in the NFL. 7-9 for them with the Chiefs winning the division at 9-7. Dwayne Bowe is gonna EXPLODE this year. The Chargers will fade fairly fast.

Cowboys, Giants, Redskins, and Eagles will beat each other up so much that whoever wins is going out early and disappointing in the playoffs. Whoever wins that division is gonna drop some of the worst games of the year and nobody is going to come out of this season actually looking good. All of these teams have huge problems but will be fairly good at exploiting each others weaknesses, making it all look that much worse. Tony Romo will prove to still be Tony Romo.

The AFC East will be the best division in football. Pats and Jets will give each other fits enough so that Miami will grab the division, Jets grab the wild card spot. Buffalo will be enough of an inconvenience as to ruin one of their division opponents seasons.

The AFC North will be the second best division in football. Ravens get the division, Bengals a wild card spot, Pittsburgh will be on their tails all season long. It must SUCK to be a Browns fan.

The Buccaneers will win the Super Bowl. Gerald McCoy will be DROY.

Wow. And I thought I had a penchant for making dangerous picks. By the way, I totally agree with your NFC East pick. If that division is brutal, however, the NFC South will be a freaking slaughterhouse.

I don't predict a good record for the Rams simply because Bradford basically missed his whole junior season due to the injury to his throwing shoulder. That does not bode well for him in my eyes.

The Oakland Raiders will give everybody fits in what will show to be the weakest division in the NFL. 7-9 for them with the Chiefs winning the division at 9-7. Dwayne Bowe is gonna EXPLODE this year. The Chargers will fade fairly fast.

Really? I mean, as much as it pains me to admit this, the Raiders and Chiefs may be slowly turning themselves around, but they do not look poised for immediate turnarounds like that. In a couple years, maybe the Raiders and Chiefs will give teams fits, but not now.

Well the only thing that impresses me with the Chargers is that Phillip Rivers is a better QB then Campbell, Cassel and Orton.

Other then that the Chargers aren't really anything unless that defense gets going. Raiders and Chiefs very well may make some noise, I guess the broncos as well.

The Chargers finally have a running game again with Mathews getting most of the snaps and Sproles in his situational role again. They also found a quality veteran wideout, Josh Reed, to replace Vincent Jackson during his babyish holdout/tantrum. And Antonio Gates has been inked for another five years, and we finally dumped LT and his declining production and mid-playoffs quitting. So there's a lot more to be excited about than Rivers this year.

As for the Broncos, I'm starting to think McDumbass is one long losing streak away from losing his team completely.

I like Ryan Mathews it'll be interesting to watch him develop.

But you have to think this is for Norv Turner if he can't muster at least one playoff victory.

In January, Norv received a three year contract extension. In the event of a lockout, and regular season games are lost, it will be even more difficult for any new HC to have quick success as they will have less time to evaluate gameplan. That is why Phillips got an extension through 2011 and Tomlin/Ryan got new deals through 2012 this off-season.
