    As for this Giants/Tiki comment: 60% of their offensive production displaced? Where did it go? So as Tiki left, 60% of their offensive production left too? When Eli goes to hand the ball off, Tiki won't be there- so they won't gain ANY of that 60% this year! OH NO!

    Just because you get "worse" on paper doesn't mean you can't improve. Tiki Barber is more talented than Droughns/Jacobs. I'd still rather have Droughns/Jacobs because of the chemistry factor.
    You should probably finish reading, as I said the displayed yards fall into other's laps. What I was trying to say was that if you have a starting back who failed to get over 800 yards, and a questionable 16 game every play back (he's a great goalline/#2 back, he needs to prove himself), I'd be worried.

    And I'd take pure talent over a "chemistry factor" any day. When Eli turns around, he's not going to have Tiki. Or on passing downs as his safety valve. He's going to have to make plays for himself. To me, that too big of a question to declare them the winners of the NFCE.

      Just so you know, Droughns was dropped to 3rd on the depth chart, I doubt he'll be a factor this season at all.

          it's ridiculous then.
          i mean, you can't lose half your defense and say, i'm gonna win the super bowl again?

          what are the chances of them repeating according to standard statistical odds? and yeah. so, the colts rampaged over a mediocre defense. big deal. i give you till week five to see the amount of close games over real mediocre teams. like, the texans and titans, while they may not win. will definitely show that the colts are highly impregnable on defense. with or without bob sanders. they're susceptible to the run and to the pass. have first year CB's that will be beat by the end of the season plenty of times with a bit of game-tape on them.

          basically all it takes to beat the colts is to run against them and control the clock, for some reason, one of the better rushing attacks in the league, couldn't do that. go figure. where did sean peyton's brain go, who knows.

            My Super Bowl prediction of the Colts is ridiculous? OK. You are entitled to your opinion. I explain why I like the defense even though "they lost half of it".

            And Princefielder, I know it's Brandon Jackson. He's on my fantasy team. He better have a monster year.

              gpngc... great post. Well done. Most repeat the same predictions, but you actually went against the grain.

              Now, to the section on the Lions:

              Lions- I want to pick them to win the division, I really do. But I just can't. Calvin's not ready, Jon Kitna is Jon Kitna, and they have no secondary. Other than that, this is a sleeper candidate. They'll win some games, but like the rest of this division, it won't be pretty this season. 6-10ish.
              Calvin doesn't seem to be ready... but I think he'll get there. They'll give him time to feel comfortable, so the first 2-4 games wont be spectacular. If he happens to be ready "in time", we could surprise some teams.

              "Jon Kitna is Jon Kitna", sure... but he performed well last year. Most of all, he performed without help from his OLine (the most sacked QB in the NFL)... yet played every snap. He understands the offense and is a great leader... something we need right now more than anything. CJ, Dell and Buckett, the OLine acquisitions and another year in the system can only help him.

              But... you're right... we have absolutely no secondary. Wilson is showing flashes of potential, but is young and raw. Bullocks was ready to take the next step, but now he's gone for the season. Kennedy doesn't fit... at all... and Bryant is injury prone... which leaves us with 2 rookies: Frampton and Alexander. Ugly. A Cover 2 can usually get away with average CBs, but not a horrible secondary.

              Bottom line: you're right on target. Anything is possible, but I think we'll grab 7 wins.

              Are you serious? Why is that relevant? He needs to be "known" to have an opinion about the upcoming season? Grow up. Get over yourself. Next time, just don't post.

                Have you ever seen the annual Jets draft day gaffe clips on ESPN?

                Recently the Jets drafts have been amazing compared to what they used to be...
                i beleive its new management, so those are old and dark days. i am a younger Jets fan, but i do know of those, but was not the Jet fan i am today. I beleive it has been long enough to forget of those :)

                  You have more trust in the Falcons than I do. I think Atlanta is in the middle of a rebuilding season. I expect 6 wins, tops.

                    Read a lot into that didn't you? I just wanted to know who he was and why he'd been here for a few months without ever posting. I actually agree with a lot of what he said, especially the Niners being ungodly overrated. He didn't seem to have a problem with what I said, why are you ******** your pants? Oh that's right...you're a douche. I must have missed where you were elected online hall monitor.

                    By the way...his post is also a good example how you can be 'unconventional' and not look ********. You should take notes, as basically any post you've made outside of the Lions forum you've been called out for being a moron.

                      No, actually an angry Rams fan. That is all.

                        Come on. As a Seahawks fan, I never had the opportunity to get into it with a Rams fan... lets go... I thought all summer that the Rams would be this years Saints- but now I'm going with my heart (and it helps that your defense makes me want to vomit)...

                        In all seriousness, the Hawks were VERY lucky to win those two games thanks to the trusty leg of Josh Brown last year. Had those games gone the other way, the Rams could've easily won the division. That's the kind of stuff I look at when making predictions- what breaks, if they go the other way, could affect the outcome of the season... I say this with as much hate as I can as a Seahawks fan, but I think the Rams have a great shot at the playoffs this year and are a Super Bowl darkhorse.
