Thought I'd make a thread for any of us who want to talk about the upcoming NFL season.

What are your predictions? Who is your favorite team? Do you play Fantasy Football?

Predictions:
Division winners:

AFC
East - Patriots
North - Ravens
South - Colts
West - Chargers

Wild card teams - Broncos & Bengals

NFC
East - Cowboys
North - Bears
South - Panthers
West - (tough call) Rams?

Wild card - Saints, Eagles

Superbowl winner? Patriots

(...I'm rooting for the Broncos. But Jay Cutler's still too raw to take them all the way.)

Don't know enough about the teams but my favorites are the Broncos!!!
I must admit I watched the Broncos game last night, and then watched SYTYCD after the first hour of the game. Jay Cutler scrambled for about 15-20 yds and got hit pretty hard. I was holding my breath when I saw that, but he was fine afterwards.

I'm a bit concerned about the Broncos defense. They looked a little shaky, but maybe it's just a matter of getting used to the new scheme.

@ tj:

I wouldn't say that I'm actually a Bronco FAN persay. I actually never watched football at all until a couple of years ago, and I'm still just learning how it works.

SO is a hs football coach and a big Bronco fan, so I'm trying to get into it (I've never been anti-football, just never had a reason to care - grew up watching the Yankees with my dad).

I did watch the game last night (even the 4th qtr after SO fell asleep! :)). Besides, got to have some CO pride!

I like him already! And good for you to show interest. :banana:

:) You did better than me, too. I stopped watching after the first hour.

I make no predictions about the upcoming season. I am a Dolphins fan (this season's gonna be a train wreck), though I often root for the Broncos and Steelers too. I am playing Fantasy Football for the first time ever this season.

I haven't been keeping track of the Dolphins (yet). Is Ronnie Brown still slated to be the starting RB? Didn't they get him some competition?

Good luck! Don't forget to keep track of those late injuries, and make sure to get yourself a decent (hopefully up-to-date) magazine.

Ronnie Brown is the starter. They drafted Lorenzo Booker as a smaller, faster runner (kind of like Maurice Jones-Drew) to change up the running game or when Ronnie needs a break. He can also catch pretty well too apparently

I don't know anything about the players anymore as I haven't kept up since I moved to NJ 20+ years ago. But, I will ALWAYS be a Broncos fan. When I lived in Denver I had season tickets and went to most every home game. It was GREAT fun!!!

Yeah, I'm ready for some football, but can't really get into pre-season.

Most experts are picking the Patriots to win it all this season.

Being a Packers fan I'm likely to be asked the question so here's my answer in advance - if the team does not do well then it will probably be Brett Favre's final year, but if they do well he may just hang around.

Way back when I was a kid and lived in San Francisco I was taken to see the 49ers fairly often. I still remember the fun, the cheerleaders and the Red Indian. So, I guess they are the team for me but unfortunately your football isn't shown on our TV very often. And I don't really understand the rules as I was young when I went to the games.
Have any of you seen Aust football or Rugby? Very different and no padding.

I am ready for football, but I don't have much interest in the NFL. I really like High School and college football, but rarely watch the pros. Packers are my favortie team, because when they play, there is very little traffic in the area and that is great for going for a bike ride. I live 60 miles from Green Bay.
