Contender or Pretender?
 
Sean Salisbury of ESPN tonight said the following:

NFC
Seahawks - contender and will give the Eagles all they can handle.
Lions - pretender, still another year away.

AFC
Texans - contender.
Jaguars - pretender.

He also said that the Broncos are going to drop off this year and that the Chiefs will win their division by at least 4 games.

Who's your contender or pretender:

Mine
NFC
Saint's - contender of course. D will do fine.
Eagles - I think their D is going to be worse than we expect our's to be.

AFC
Colt's - contender. All comes together for Manning this year.
Patriot's - pretender. Drop off after Superbowl, no reason just a hunch.

Hey, Gator...

The Pats didn\'t lose anyone really.

Who did the Bucs lose last year after winning the Super Bowl?

Didn\'t I tell you and WhoDat at the beginning of last season that the Bucs were not the team to beat. Didn\'t the Bucs finish 7-9 last year?? ;)

You and WhoDat tried to get me to buy into the Bucs last year. I remember it well.

One day you\'re going to listen to me.

But just in case ya don\'t.

Look at my gold watch. You\'re eyes are getting heavy. You are getting very sleepy..

Now that you\'re under my spell... Repeat after me: Aaron Brooks is a top 3 QB. Aaron Brooks is a top 3 QB.

When I snap my fingers you will not remember this converstation.

SNAP

Crackle

POP!!

Hey Gator, no offense taken, yes I\'m a regular now and plan on staying for a long time or until my wife tells me I can\'t anymore and then I would leave her so I could stay. I said the D will be fine, not that there fine, yet. As far as the Eagles, I think Kearse will get hurt soon and often and that Owens will be blanketed all season long and with no top flight rusher and no solid 2nd receiver, they will not be everything that everyone says they will be. As for the Patriot\'s, just a hunch and only a hunch.

Right - let\'s compare the Bucs to the Pats - who wants to play that game?

Gimme a break. Yeah, I see a 7-9 year in the Pats future. The Saints will be 12-4 though. Hang on... gotta go guys, I\'ve got a phone call. It\'s the earth.

Hello, WhoDat, this is Earth. What was the Pats record the year following their 1st Super Bowl win?

Head just not in it today, or what? You usually put up better logic :exclam:

FYI it was 9-7, and they had to win the last game in OT over Miami to avoid going 8-8, and had losses to the the lowly Jets and Chargers.

They are a Tom Brady injury from 8-8 or 7-9.

C\'Mon Danno. Injuries are no excuse. ;)

thats ridiculous that injuries r no excuse. i would say that is a factor of the game but to say its no excuse is ridiculous. so if peyton manning was playing one week n u were betting them to win u would bet them to win against the same team without him. cmon man. be honest they do matter. when we lost last year to the colts we had like 6 or 7 d starters out. would we have won i doubt it but we wouldnt have been that bad. so ur telling me the saints r the same with or without deuce?

The 12-4 prediction was sarcasim. I predicted several times this year and everytime I have made the same prediction of 11-5. I know that\'s still high, but I am very optimistic about the season.

The Eagles have lost a couple of good DB\'s and a linebacker, gained Curse, oh I mean Kearse and lost Kalu for the season and this is just the one\'s I can remember. They don\'t have a #1 running back, so that leaves TO and McNabb and I don\'t think they will hold up all season either. I\'ve never heard of two man football, especially against eleven men.

The Patriots just a hunch and only from past experience.
