    Well in a few days the season officially gets under way. It's going to be another rough year in Raiders land. They cut Garcia.:rant: I feel he was their only hope of having an 8-8 season. Russell will be at the helm, I see them winning no more than 5 games................ again.

    How do you think your team will do?

    The Pats will do just fine.

    That said I'm disappointed that they traded Richard Seymore to the Raiders. I mean, it was a smart move for the team, but he's one of my favorites and hate to see him go.
    The Pats got the Raiders 1st round pick for next year, so I'll be routing against them more than usual, but still pulling for Seymore.

    2011 pick, actually, so the Raiders have two seasons to improve and lower that Pats' draft pick. I could see the Raiders approaching .500 in two seasons.

    You guys got Derek Burgess from the Raiders, he has been their best defensive player.

    When you keep getting high draft picks, eventually the players develop and the team improves. That is, unless you are the Lions.

    Not in the Raiders case. On paper they should be a constant playoff caliber team. This even dates back to after their Super Bowl loss. Al Davis has never been afraid to spend what ever it takes to put a winning team on the field. IMO he's the Steinbrener of Football, when it comes to spending. He should have tried to keep Gruden way back when.

    I think Favre will have a good five games and then get hurt. Vikes will probably go 8-8.

    I love how Al traded next year's 1st round pick for a guy who won't report to the team.

    The best part is going to be after the season is over. When the Raiders tank, they will have traded a probable top 5 pick for a guy who could very likely resign with the Pats.

    On my side of the Bay, people are getting exciting for the season. I think I am going to my first game at Candlestick.

    Again, it's a 2011 pick, not a 2010 pick.

    Seahawks get back on top of the division this year, skunk AZ during the season, whomp the Ramz, and acutally make a decent showing in the playoffs.

    I'm secretly hoping for a first round bye...time will tell.

    You are far more optimistic than I.


    I'm just pissed that I ended up with Tony Romo as the starter on my fantasy team.

    Well, I'm sure the Raiders will go to the Superbowl in 2011.

    Candlestick is a complete dump, WAY worse than Oakland. Candlestick needed to be torn down 25 years ago.

    Hey, the Raiders are the only thing that give Texan fans a reason to reconsider jumping from the top of Reliant Stadium every year...:D

    You could do far worse than having Homo as your starting QB. He has a good target at TE, and has 2 or 3 solid receiving threats. I'd take him.

    At least it's not Martyball anymore...that was just painful (a few years back...). You think he would've learned...

    Oh, he'll put up points, I'm not worried about that. It's just more a matter of principles.


    My roommate, however, has me beat. Team Anger Management. He's got:

    -TO
    -Ochocinco
    -Dolphins D
    - Dallas Clark
    - Darren McFadden

    Even though Delhomme has broken down, Carolina still has an excellent running game and a solid defense. They may not make the playoffs, but they wont be a joke like the Broncs and Raiders.

    The Raiders will still be a bigger joke than the Broncos. Even if the Raiders start to show some glimmer oh hope I'm sure they'll find a way to lose quite a few games in the final 5 minutes.

    I've never gone over to Candlestick, but I'll take your word it is a dump.

    I am somewhat ambivalent about the move to Santa Clara. The 49er's I'm sure need a new stadium, but there is a certain pleasure with your team being in the city.

    I also think in our current economy, I don't know how any town can afford to build a team a new stadium.

    It really is bad. The last game I went to there was when the Raiders played the 49ers the year the Raiders went to the SB. I was wondering around the stadium and commented to my wife that the place was getting real bad.

    Anyone care to make a Super Bowl prediction? Try not to be a homer about it.

    My pick is New England over New Orleans.

    If Brady get back to full form, I too see NE. However, I think the Seahawks could be the dominate ones in the NFC.

    Whoever had the seahawks tag: Nice tag...dillhole.

    Anyway... SB Predictions:

    Homer/wishful: Seahawks vs. NE

    Realistic: Pittsburgh vs. Giants
