We are officially picked by all to win the NFC North and the top man, John Clayton, has us in Detroit for the Super Bowl.
Wow, four of them have us in the Super Bowl and all four have us losing to the Colts ... Also odd that only one vote for C-Pep for MVP, but Kurt Warner has two votes? Go figure ... Here is the link ...

I was glad to see if any of those people had us picked, Clayton would be the one. He's my favorite NFL analyst just because he always seems to know what's going on. But I can't forget about Jaws. He understands the game really well too.

Yeah I think it is fun to look over ... it seems that the overwhelming favorites in the AFC are Colts and Patriots, but I think people are discounting that Cheifs team ...

other interesting things on there Sports Inc. has Tice as coach of the year, and Micheal Smith of the boston globe has Troy Williamson winning Offensvie rookie of the year. don't like the prediction about the colts winning over us though, i don't think they have upgraded enough on the defensive side of the ball. Corey Simon was a great pick up for them though

Idk, I just don't think the Chiefs will be as good as some of us originally expected.

I think the Colts should be pretty scary this year, but that's just my opinion. Their defense looks to be pretty solid to me.

The colts defense reminds me of ours back in 03...ballhawks, but really nothin more. The defense is improved ( well its already been so bad pretty much anything you add to it will improve it) and the offense is still there, BUT...and this is a big but...I beleive if they cant get home field advantage in the playoffs, thier done.

i know preseason doesn't mean much but the bengals hammered the colts.if the colts sure up their D they were scare me, cuz they have 3 #1 receivers and a good running back, in James and one of the better QB in Manning

I definately agree with that. They can get around the ball cuz they're really, really fast, but they're not physical enough.

how many turnovers did they have last season? cuz i know we either lead the NFL or just NFC in 03 in takeaways/intereceptions, which we didn't do any of last year.

I think its funny how they all just watch one preseason game of Demarcus Ware and now 1/2 of them have him a DROY..
