    Default Since this is a football section...

    Well, since this is a football section...

    Why not discuss a little football as well, I think?

    Personally, I think that my Carolina Panthers will dominate this year, with the addition of Keyshawn Johnson to go along with Steve Smith, we now have the offensive punch we have not had since we were last in the Superbowl(at that time, it was Mushin Muhammed who was the other power reciever, coincidentally, he and Keyshawn seem very similar in their size and how they perform, both like to muscle the ball, and catch while airborne).

    So, if y'all want to, discuss your teams, be it college, high school, or pro...

    You've gotta go through the Bears for that to happen, and it won't. We returned all 22 starters, and we've added some young firepower. I don't know if you were watching, but while your Seahawks struggled to a 9-6 win over the DETROIT FUCKING LIONS, Chicago shutout the Pack for the first time since 1991 (and that's an all-inclusive stat; Green Bay hasn't not scored since before Brett Favre got there). We had 3 interceptions (one by a rookie), 3 sacks (one by a rookie), and a punt returned for a touchdown (by a rookie).

    Not to mention the offense. This stat might be news to some, but the Packers were ranked in the Top 10 for passing defense. Rex Grossman (that's right, fragile-ass rex Grossman and the BEARS' RECEIVING CORPS) torched them. Robbie Gould was 4 for 4. We dominated in all phases of the game. AND we have quite possibly the easiest schedule, considering the fact that we were an 11-5 team last year. And you say SEAHAWKS? They had the #1 offense last year, and didn't score against the Lions. Josh Brown scored all their points. The Lions don't even really have any high-profile defensive players. They've got Shaun Rogers at DT, and that's about it. Sure, Dre' Bly is known, as is Boss Bailey, but that's 'cause he's a fast fucker and Champ's little brother. They DO have a fast LB trio, but that's about it. And you say SEAHAWKS? Get real.

    Keyshawn Johnson is a little more durable than Muhsin "Moose" Muhammad and will allow Steve Smith to stretch the field while he works the middle of the field. As long as Jake Delhomme doesn't do his Brett Farve gunslinger impression too much their offense is on par with Indy, Cinci, and Ari in potency. Carolina looked good despite the loss. Not to mention they didn't have either Steve Smith or Dan Morgan. That Atlanta defense looked stingy though. John Abraham looks to be well worth the low first round pick.

    My condolences in advance to Giants fans. Having the hardest NFL schedule of the year will hurt. Being in the NFC east makes it even worse. The Redskins and Cowboys got better and the Eagles are back in their NFC championship shape. They actually have recievers this year. Todd Pinkston and Freddie Mitchell plain sucked. Donte Stallworth and Hank Baskett are big upgrades at the position and will help Reggie Brown reach his full potential. Good team falls to hard schedule. Nothing new. Think the 2005 Chargers. Will Demps is the most underrated defensive signing this offseason and is a great upgrade at FS though.

    A Hutch-less Seattle in the superbowl? Unlikely. The loss of Steve Hutchinson, Joe Jurevicius and even Marquand Manuel will hurt. The rest of the division made some lofty gains in the offseason as well. I'm looking forward to a high powered St. Louis team without a bum named Mad Mike Martz calling the plays. I used to think Marty Schottenheimer was the undisputed king at neutering teams, but Martz is head and shoulders above him. The Cardinals aren't bad either, just a LT and RG away from being the most potent offense in the NFC. Their defense is young and improving as well. Carlos Dansby, Bertrand Berry, Antrell Rolle, and Adrian Wilson are all going to get better. The Seahawks have to break both the Madden curse and the superbowl hangover as well.

    Patriots? Please. Tom Brady is real good but he isn't god. He needs more than Ben Watson to get things done. Doug Gabriel is on the rise but isn't ready for a breakthough season just yet. Deion Branch is packed and ready to go anytime, to another team that is. And Reche Caldwell... Just hope he doesn't fumble half as much as he did in San Diego. That injured linebacking core doesn't help either. Ryan O'Callaghan and Tully Banta-Cain both show some great promise for the Pats though.

    Raiders fan scare me, almost as much a drunk Steve Foley walking toward you with his hands in his pants and being alone with Jeff Garcia in a back alley. But then I think of them having Aaron Brooks at QB and I feel alot better. You are right, no matter how scary the fans, they still are not a match for the other AFC west teams. Good luck at rebuilding while making Randy Moss happy. Look at it this way, your in the Ted Ginn Jr. sweepstakes for the upcoming draft. Raiders will be back in the mix in two years me thinks.

    Bears? I hope so. If you play the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, and Minnesota Vikings twice a year its a tad bit bad if you don't at least make the playoffs. Hell, if you don't it's almost as bad as the Texans passing on Reggie Bush. Devin Hester is an amazing rookie and your defense will be at the very least top three barring injury. I can see them in the NFC Championship game, although I think they will fall short.

    Don't follow that stat of the Packers being a top 10 passing defense. They were top in that category last year because opposing teams were too busy running on them to pass. Even by looking at the highlights from last year, it's a common sight to see Al Harris getting burned because he got out of position trying to support the run defense. Plus their first team secondary got toasted to a crisp by a returning Carson Palmer with second string recievers. Allowing a plethora of passing touchdowns to Philip Rivers with second string recievers and a work in progress Vince Young isn't any better either. Sure it's preseason, but anytime your first string is baked to a crisp by a second string, you sir have a problem. I'll give Rex Grossman and company credit when they actually do good against a real defense. (Looks at the bear's schedule.) ...Dec 17th... geez that's one heck of a long wait.

    Now for my pick. Although I'm a Charger fan by geography, I will have to go with...

    AFC Championship Game

    Cincinnati Bengals vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

    NFC Championship Game

    Carolina Panthers vs. Philadelphia Eagles

    Super Bowl XLI
    Philadelphia Eagles vs. Cincinnati Bengals

    Hot News: Following the super bowl festivities, the Philadelphia Eagles have made all Eagles players sign a new mandatory contract clause that averts any player on their team from becoming the Madden cover athlete.

    More Hot News: The John Madden has suddenly overturned and exploded. Killing the overweight fat piece of horse turd in the process. Top suspects in the case include two mascots, an eagle and a kangaroo, who have been reportedly sighted heading toward Dallas, TX loudly screaming the phrase "T.O. must die."

    Ack! You have wounded me greatly. Why, oh why, for all that is good in life, did you have to mention yesterday's game? Now I will crawl back into my pit of misery...

    The Buckeyes are number one without a doubt this year.

    But.

    The Florida State University Seminoles will give them a run for their money. In terms of pure athletes Florida beats out any other state by a long shot. Now only if they can improve on the mental aspect of the game...
