This series was created for the purpose of showing my critics I give praise to other football teams. I refused from the beginning to not have the Steelers part of this series because of being criticized for being a homer. I'll stick with that through out. Time to give praise and critic other football teams besides my favorite.
1.Al Davis/Raiders-I was never a big fan of the Raiders. Not a big fan of any players on their football teams(exception McFadden). I was proud of the Raiders for pulling out that huge win for Al. I do wish the team well going forward. I want the Raiders to win the division this year for Al Davis. The story would just be tremendous. My bias towards rooting for Tebow to do well will not hurt the Raiders. Still proud to say the Raiders are undefeated in division play since Campbell came in. Prove them wrong!! RIP Al Davis
2.TEBOW TIME!!-I told you all Kyle Orton was over-rated. People bash Tebow for his accuracy when Orton is still one of the worst in the league. He lost his job and Tebow almost made Rivers have a heart attack. Tebow came in and led that football team. The sounds in that stadium was tremendous. An atmosphere, he created by the confidence he brought in with him. It would have been awesome to see that comeback win, but it didn't happen unfortunately!! Happy for Tebow and hope he proves the doubters wrong.
3.Vikings/All Day-Got their first win of the season and kept the lead!! Cards keep proving me right.
4.Saints/Brees/Panthers-It seems I have the Panthers on here every week. I am stunned by the way they have kept competitive in ball games. Deserve a lot of credit for getting the lead vs the Saints. I have been very hard on Brees and the Saints. Way more hate than they deserve. Saint fans and Brees, I apoligize. He truly is an elite quarterback in this league and I wish Brees and the Saints well going forward. I felt it needed to be said and I have felt this way since the game where I rooted for Brees and the Saints to win. I've been way too harsh towards the organization and the Saints. I said NFC Champs before the season began. Hope you prove me right! Again, I apoligize!
5.Packers/Lions-Undefeated through 5 weeks. I know both were expected to play well, but they deserve a ton of credit for their teams performance thus far. Calvin Johnson is currently my pick to win the MVP award with Rodgers a close 2nd. Both have played fantastic. Praise is well deserved!!
*Bonus: Seahawks-I think this was deserved after their performance vs the Giants. Know they won't be on here that often if they live up to my expectations. Congrats on the upset and huge victory.
1.Bucs-What happened? 3-48 loss to the 49ers. I had Bucs as the last team eliminated to miss the playoffs. Maybe it was the schedule. It seems like when they don't run the football effectively, the team struggles. I think Freeman needs better weapons. Picking the Saints to win the AFC South looks good right now! Again....thank you Falcons for keep proving me right!!
2.Jags-What is up with that? You have the lead and lose it? C'mon man!! Now Bengals look like they may start 5-2!! I bet Carson Palmer is happy!!
3.Colts lose lead-24-7 was when I said, Colts are gonna get their first victory. 28-24 was the final score....What happened? Chiefs ground game is non-existant. All they have is a passing game right now. I can't believe it! Colts will not have the worst record in the league o!!
4.Matt Schaub-With Texans being good they are getting more exposure nationally. That isn't good for Schaub because he is nothing, but a product of AJ and Arian Foster. He isn't an elite quarterback. He is worse than Romo and Rivers!!
5.Vick-Last season, I was rooting for Vick to be successful. He was, but this year.....he isn't looking too good. Dream Team comment probably killed this football team. I knew they would struggle early due to new coaches, but.....they have got to play better in all phases. It feels like in Philly they have too many personalities to deal with. VY obviously, Jackson wanting his pay check, and player playing with far more confidence. I don't know what it is, but they can't stop the run with those linebackers. That with the interception and turnovers. I had Eagles get the final wildcard spot with Lions/Packers getting #5.It looks if the playoff door is closing on the Eagles quickly. They gotta step it up!!

Let me start off by saying I strongly dislike both teams. No bias at all here. Don't believe me....ask any Saint or Packer fan on these boards. In any case, the game is less then a week away. We are all pumped for some football. Here is how I figure the game will play out.
I figure the Packers will come in with an obvious game plan......run the football!! The Saints weak rush D has been well documented. Lynch of the Seahawks had a monster game vs the Saints to end their season in wildcard opener. An opener in which everyone picked the Saints including me. Everyone was shocked especially with critics claiming Seahawks shouldn't be in the playoffs with a losing record.
If the Saints don't stop the ground game the Packers will win the game. I'm not saying they are gonna run all game long, but running game is key in the 4th quarter. Time of possession is one of the key attributes in winning football games. If Pack has the lead in the 4th they will run that clock down. I figure that Ryan Grant will have a good game unless Saints rush D proves me wrong.
Saints key to victory, get stops and don't let the Packers have success on the ground. On offense, if you can run the football. Drew Brees obviously is the key for the Saints to win football games, but if they can control the clock then I don't see why they don't win the football game. I don't doubt Brees throwing the football. I doubt the running game and rush D which is why I feel the Packers will win to open the season.
It will be a close game though. I don't see a shootout between Rodgers and Brees happening. I say Packers win the game w/ less than 25 points on the board and w/ the Saints less than 20. It will come down to defense. Since that is the case in my opinion, Packers D will get it done. I'll be rooting for an upset victory, but I doubt it will happen.
Surprised??Don't be.........STAY JEALOUS!!

This is an update kind of due to recent moves lately.
AFC East:Patriots-Getting Chad and Ellis to me improves their football team. They are better than the Jets.
AFC North:Steelers-They keep proving the doubters wrong and they'll do it again in 2011.
AFC South:Colts-I know I stated on some occassions that they will miss the playoffs. The prediction was made simply because 5 new teams had to get in. At the time, I thought Jets were the better team. Now I feel they have the best chance to get in 2011.
AFC West:Chargers-Raiders got worse, Broncos still suck, and Chargers are gonna be one of them new 5 football teams to make the playoffs in 2011.
AFC Wildcard #5:Ravens-Got respect for the Ravens. No doubt they will be in the playoffs in 2011.
AFC Wildcard #6:Texans-everyones darkhorse, but I didn't pick them last year. I liked the moves they made this offseason and I believe they can finally get to the postseason. Possibly a division title.
NFC East:Eagles-I suspect slow start, but I feel they will finish strong and make the playoffs.
NFC North:Packers-1st division crown since Rodgers has taken over.
NFC South:Saints-I think I have over-rated this football team a bit after their draft. They may win the division. I like the Bucs too.
NFC West:Rams-Gotta love Bradford. Kinda shocked by the lack of moves in FA for weak wr position. I think they can still get the job done o. 49ers will surprise some folks. Watch out!!
NFC Wildcard #5:Cowboys-I say 10 or 11 wins with a playoff berth. Cowboys>Giants
NFC Wildcard #6:Bucs-I wouldn't be shocked if this team wins the division this year. They are under the radar. 10-13 wins possibly.

Upsets happen in the NFL all the time. Weekly and some times more than one in a week. I decided since the season is about to begin, it is time to start calling some upsets. I'll call 1 for each week:

The endless frustration continues even after posting stats for the geeks. It is unbelievable to me that even with stats they refuse to give Ben any credit. I posted stats to support my argument in my post called "Who had the better Super Bowl run?" The critics didn't show, but they did vote clearly. 40 something-60 something pct between Ben's first Super Bowl run and Peyton's. I can't believe the idiots despite the great stats Ben put up compared to Peyton's still voted for Peyton. Even Irregardless makes idiotic comments saying Dilfer didn't have a defense or running game. Are you kidding me? How far are you gonna go with this? I know your hatred for Ben blinds you, but come on now.
Ben has a great defense and a great running game which is what I hear. He is discredited time and time again which I can't understand. How the hell can you tell me Dilfer didn't have a great defense? How can you tell me Brady didn't? Brady threw 1 TD in his first Super Bowl run. Not once did his team win by 7 points!!! Peyton won 2 games on his first Super Bowl run with defense giving up less than 10 points. He finally led the Colts to beat the Pats, but had a touchdown in a 30 point plus game. Do you people watch the games? How does Rodgers not get discredited for having a great defense? During his Super Bowl run last season he only won one game by more than a TD.3 of those games came down to the final minutes where the defense bailed him out. Yes....I said bailed him out! Something you critics claim Steelers defense does with Ben apparently. He gets no credit for either Super Bowl wins he had. He played great in his first Super Bowl run except in the Super Bowl, but he did have a TD in the game. 43 he led the team to a game winning drive after the defense gave up 16 points in the 4th quarter? Before you come here and say James Harrison interception...I would like copy and paste some things:
It was over when....
Rodgers, who completed 18 of 27 passes for 180 yards, had to watch from the sideline as Vick nearly led the Eagles back. But Tramon Williams intercepted Vick's pass for Riley Cooper in the end zone with 33 seconds left to seal the win.
The Vikings dominated in every major statistical category, but the Saints kept the game close by forcing six fumbles and two interceptions.

The reason pre FA is in the title: NFL has yet to have free agency. These predictions are before anybody makes that big move to help their team get to the playoffs. I know haters will join on here and say I was wrong after A team made the playoffs after getting a top free agent to help them get there. This is my pre free agency "Who's goin to the playoffs" thread. All haters, critics, friends, and fans are welcome.

AFC East: Patriots-forget all the hype. The team is probably the best when it comes to wins in the regular season. Jets....prove me wrong!
AFC North: Steelers-critics were wrong last go around. This time won't be any different.
AFC South: Colts-Can't bet against them. Made the playoffs 11x straight I believe. Prove me wrong Jags and 5th year darkhorse(laughing) Texans.
AFC West: Bolts-I doubt Chiefs can repeat. Broncos and Raiders just arn't good enough. Bolts are gonna gets their stats and in this case victories as well.
NFC East: Cowboys-getting Romo back with a pretty solid draft. I expect them or Giants to win the division. Either way both are goin to the playoffs.
NFC North: Packers-wins division for the first time in the era of Rodgers.
NFC South: Saints-Brees will have a running game to lead him back to the Super Bowl.
NFC West: Rams-shoulda won it last year. This year they should be able to get the job done.
As you can see I made it nice and easy for ya. I put the division in bold lettering and underlined the team name. Surprised??Don't be.......STAY JEALOUS!!

This particular thread is basically to bash teams who have made some dumb decisions on the draft day thus far. Well of course it is everyones opinion.
I'll give you an example: Falcons traded 2 1st and 4th round picks plus a 2nd rounder to get Julio Jones. Some may call it bold. I call it stupid basically trading their draft away for Julio Jones. I believe White posted on twitter they traded their draft away. Obviously White isn't very happy with the trade. Now the Brownies will be battling for the number 2 spot in the division with Baltimore behind Pittsburgh. Nice job....I'm sure the Saint fans along with Buc fans are laughing right now. I would say Carolina is laughing, but you know. At any case, they were the most over-rated team last year. I doubt the team makes it to the playoffs unless they get the 6th slot in the wildcard which I doubt. Saints not only in my opinion will be the division winner, but they should be the best team in the NFC after thee amazing draft they had. Some could argue they had the best draft. The argument is with the Browns. The reason Browns are in the discussion is because all the picks Falcons gave them. Congrats on being the laughing stock of day ones draft. I know I'm not making any friends with Falcon fans, but I speak my opinion. Saint fans probably dislike me just as much as you will after the read. Congrats on trading this years along with next years draft away. I was amazed as I feel Holmgren was when he heard the offer. Julio Jones isn't worth 5 picks. Especially 2 1st round picks! Surprised??Don't be.........STAY JEALOUS!!
