Am I Rip van Beefcake, or what? I've apparently fallen so far out-of-touch with the NFL off-season and such that I was unaware that Green Bay has become the sure thing for greatness this season.

Sports Illustrated online (sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/football/nfl/09/06/2010.predictions.2/index.html) has 7 of its 9 experts penciling in the Packers as Super Bowl participants! And of those 2 non-believers, one of them is an ignoramus who lists Kansas City as winning the AFC West, so his pick is hereby disregarded. So - with that factored in, 7 of 8 pick Green Bay into the Super Bowl! Wow.

And 8 of 9 choose Aaron Rodgers :grope: as the league MVP! The other expert (just one, whoa) picks Brees. :wideeyes:

Expectations for Pack fans, for sure. :watch: Good luck.

For the first time in ages, I will root for an underdog, an unknown quantity that the experts say may win their division ... then :slinkaway Yes, of course I'm talking about the Indy Colts.

As a Packer fan, all these predictions have me nervous. Sure, I expected a few "experts" to pick the Packers to make the Super Bowl, but not this many! Our offense looks explosive, and Aaron Rodgers looks even better than last year having worked on getting rid of the football and making quicker decisions. He had an incredible pre-season (Yes, I know it's just pre-season ;) ). I wouldn't be surprised if he won MVP or Offensive Player of the Year. As for the team, I am most concerned about some aspects of the defense and special teams. We're down a cornerback in Al Harris who is still out from an awful injury last year (ACL, MCL tears) and is starting the year on PUP as is one of our safeties, Atari Bigby. I'm confident that this team will be good, but I wish they were going a bit more under the radar and avoiding the "hype". They got off to a slow start last year after a lot of pre-season hype and admitted that they were too confident. I expect and hope that they will avoid that this year.

Go Pack Go! :cheer:

I've been a niner fan since they beat the Dolphins in the Super Bowl... I think I was in 3rd grade then. GO NINERS!

Ready for the Vikings/Saints game tonight but there is a terrible thunderstorm over the city and the area around my work is all flooded so as of right now, I'm not going home anytime soon. I'll be pissed if I have to miss watching the game!!

Tight game so far, Saints get an interception, let's see if they can translate this into some points!

Come on, Saints! Please kick that geriatric SOB's ass!!

It's a tight game so far, but hopefully that Saints can break it open in the second half.

Go Brett. I am a bit tired of the Saints - sainthood. I understand the superbowl win helped New Orleans, but....a bit tired of it.

The Saints don't want to win! That should have been a touchdown and then an easy FG is missed. This is in Favre's hands...again.

I wish I cared more about this game because it is the first game of the season. But it is very meh to me. Bring on the Pats!

I'm secretly hoping for another Vikings-Saints matchup in the NFC title game this season. Hopefully in Minnesota, this time. :saint:

Glad the Saints pulled it off! Favre wont make it through the season, that is my prediction for the year.

09-10-2010, 05:25 AM
Come on, Saints! Please kick that geriatric SOB's ass!!

:D Oh how I love this! I've been upset with the Vikings since they beat my Niners last season. Woooo, yay for the Saints winning!

Not an elegant game last night, both teams will be a lot better in a couple of weeks. And I'll expect you will see a lot of sloppy games this weekend, which means upsets are a comin'

Go Pack Go!
