The shame is... they could reel me in with more "classic" games... and not just the last 5 years. Other day I rewatched Miami @ Houston from 1978 when Earl Campbell went for 199 and 4 TD's. Now THAT was a classic game!

One of the very few NFL games that I was extremely fortunate to attend and see live. Well, sort of with the seat I had.


It was one of those games I missed watching live because I was in England where the NFL was a rumor at the time. But we listened to it on Armed Forces Radio out of Germany. Jack Buck's Call was greatness.

It would make sense for teams to start training camp the first week of July or after the 4th. They don't have to compete with the NBA or NHL. It's maddening! :crazy:


That's why NFLN does that stupid Top 100 list. To keep you occupied. Of course I don't watch that crap...

I personally would love it if they showed more vintage games instead of only the most recent. The 1972 Divisional, the mad Bomber on Thanksgiving, old Cowboy-Redskin match ups, etc., I even loved watching hank Stramm and the Chief's in Super Bowl IV.

Patriots, Steelers in the AFC

Seahawks, Cardinals, Packers, Panthers, Cowboys, Giants, Falcons in the NFC

I'm going with Giants/Steelers this year (for now). But I could realistically see any of those teams making the super bowl in the NFC...and the Buccaneers and Vikings could be pretty good too

As far as predictions... I'll hold off for awhile. Never know what injuries creep up on a team you think is going to contend. God forbid your starting QB goes down in preseason after your primary backup is lost for the season and you are left with a untested rookie QB you drafted at the end of the 4th round to lead you until you hopefully get your starter back around mid seaso...

Something like that.

Defense should be top 3 in the league. Also, if Wallace plays well again and Perriman finally breaks out the offense can be decent.

Just hoping the O-Line holds up and Ozzie signs another good FA.

Pats and Steelers are the only other real competitors and we've beaten both of them, or at least given them a good scare, in the playoffs. So anything can happen.

Good enough for me, though I'm not betting the farm on that Wallace and Perriman combo.



Honestly, the Ravens (and the Giants in the NFC) are a team you never need to give a reason for predicting them to make the super bowl. It's just kind of random and surprising, but at the same time not...if that makes sense..

But IMO, the Steelers have yet to actually play up to their potential with the offensive weapons they have...I think they're a cut above the Ravens.

Or Russell Wilson is exposed for the average QB that he is, while the turmoil in the Seahawks locker room spill over and the entire defense finally admits that they cultivated a special PED, which is what has allowed them to so good over the years...or something like that... :D
