Isn't that website just a thinly-veiled Patriots fan site anyway? I always remember them having articles about how Brady was so much better than Manning and Marino combined.

And just one more thing to point out, and thats the fact he just looked at the final score in those losses to those "quality teams". Never mind the fact that w/o the turnovers we would've won at least 3 of those.

I would add a last snipe at the end saying something to the effect of, "you might want to consider going back to college (football, that is)."

AWESOME LETTER, TOO!!

I would suggest all of you send a letter, just to read the condescending letter that pops up, telling you that if you are praising their football knowledge, then you will reciever a nice reply. If you question their abilities, and form your own opinions, then they will send you a nasty reply. I am paraphrasing, so if you want to read it, send them an email. It's funny to read.

This is Great!



http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com...e.php?Page=966

A link from ColdHardFootballFacts themselves and I quote:

Consensus pick: Dallas

The consensus falls on the side of Dallas, however. The Cowboys narrowly missed out on the playoffs last year with an un-Parcellsian 2-3 performance in December and January. They won a shootout with Kansas City and walked into Carolina on Christmas Eve and beat the Panthers.
Wait, it gets better:

NFC South
Consensus pick: Carolina
The Cold, Hard Football Facts have a certain fondness for things from Carolina, like that chick Shana (pictured here in all her swimsuit beauty), pulled pork and the Panthers. It’s easy to see why: Shana's hot, pulled pork is tasty and the Panthers play tough, efficient, fundamental football, as evidenced by the fact that few teams last year fared so well in so many Quality Stats.

The Panthers ranked No. 2 in defensive passer rating, No. 6 on the Cold, Hard Football Facts Bendability Index and – despite scoring a solid but unspectacular 391 points – No. 1 in the league in the Scoreability Index. No team, in other words, scored more efficiently than Carolina did last year. When it came to point differential vs. quality opponents, Carolina ended the season behind only Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh and 14-2 powerhouse Indy. Toss in a ball-hawking defense, a proven big-game QB in Jake Delhomme (No. 3 all-time in postseason passer rating at 95.0, behind only Joe Montana and Bart Starr), a big-game coach in John Fox and a spectacular wideout in Steve Smith … and all the numbers led to a spot in the NFC title game last year. The Cold, Hard Football Facts also make Carolina a prohibitive favorite to win the NFC South and represent the conference in Super Bowl XLI.

The defensive-minded Bucs have a chance to make history this season. Since the merger, only the Cowboys have finished in the Top 10 in total defense 10 straight seasons (1970-79). Tampa has a chance to join that elite list with a Top 10 performance this season.

Watch out for New Orleans, according to three of the trolls. The Saints this year have a QB in Drew Brees who has proven he can put up big numbers, a potential game-breaking superstar in running back Reggie Bush and, we hope, no need to deal with a devastating hurricane that turned 2005 into an on- and off-field disaster. Coupled with a generally weak conference, it gives the Saints a puncher’s chance at a wild-card berth.
And here are their predictions:

It simply goes to show that when you put your faith in Cold, Hard Football Facts, and not in trends, hype and storylines, you're going to be right more often than not. So, we're not afraid to put our ample asses on the line – much to the detriment of the line's health and well-being.

As always, we put a premium on Quality Stats and on those arguments for which there is factual evidence supporting the cause. We don't fall for hype when making our predictions. Instead, we fawn over the stunning beauty of Planet Pigskin's own Miss Universe, the Cold, Hard Football Facts.

So, here goes nothing. The CHFF trolls pridelessly present our 2006 fearless and perhaps quite useless predictions:

I see an awful lot of Dallas in there

Here's a link to them backpeddaling and saying Bledsoe sucks and the NFC East is weak after the previous aricle where the NFC East is the firecracker NFC division and Bledsoe and weapons will be great for Dallas:

http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com....php?Page=1088

The ineffective, aging Bledsoe, blessed with the mobility of a beached whale and the decision-making skills of George Costanza, was benched in humiliating fashion in front of millions of fans for unproven backup Tony Romo.

It's Romo who will start for the Cowboys when they visit Carolina for another nationally televised game, this one Sunday night on NBC. But the Romo-Bledsoe debate is likely to continue for at least 10 more weeks. The 3-3 Cowboys remain very much alive in the weak and wide-open NFC East. Bledsoe may be past his prime – which was never too prime to begin with – but Romo hardly seems like the answer. Heading into the loss to the Giants, he had attempted just two passes in four NFL seasons.

RE: This is Great!

People in their line of work, have to learn how to back peddle early in their careers. Walking backwards is a way of life for them.

RE: This is Great!

Another thing to recognize this season, is the number of teams, that are in contention for a wildcard spot. How many seasons before this one, have you seen this many teams still in it this time of year? There's like 4 teams tied for the final spot right now, and two more, one game behind. Teams that weren't supposed to win, did, and the one's who were supposed to win, lost. That's AFC, and NFC.

This has been the craziest year in the NFL, I have seen in quite sometime. I like it, but it's weird. Strength of schedule, this season, to me, means squat.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....
