1. It's an odd numbered year so does that mean the Panthers will suck
or will they win the NFC? it's one of those but I always forget which year they do well in.

2. TO will have a shouting match with parcells before the season is over
and because of TO the Cowboys won't make the playoffs.

3. The Raiders will underachieve,
and the Cardinals will just plain suck.

5. How About The New "Olin Kreutz" Rule?
A center can no longer wiggle the fingers on the hand that isn't on the ball, or it's illegal motion. The guy who triggers the entire play by snapping the ball, can't move the fingers on the other hand, because it is "an unfair advantage". (The quote of the ref who came to Bears' camp.)

Since the play can't start until the ball is snapped, one would think that the fingers on the other hand shouldn't be what any lineman is looking at.

The rules get so dumb, i doubt if it's possible for a ref to do a great job.

13. You know
when I played in high school, I was RG, and NG on defense...and as an RG, you couldn't move a damn muscle, or even twitch withouth the refs throwing a flag...and it aggravates me, when I see PRO centers, moving there off arm all over the place....they give centers a lot of leeway...

8. Sad to say, but Favre's streak ends this year
I have looked very carefully at the Packer's roster, and it doesn't look all that good on offense, especially the O-Line. I am afraid that Brett Favre's consecutive game streak ends this year. Of course, this isn't a solid lock so maybe it shouldn't be here.

9. They are weak at WR, RB and O-line all
Favre will set 2 other records though:

He needs 25 TD passes to pass Marino
and he needs 23 ints. to beat Blanda's record

10. Yes it ends when he retires
Unless McCarthy wants his dog shot a la Dan Devine if he sits him.

11. Or when he is too injured to play
and if he O-line doesn't step it up considerably from last year, he is going to be in trouble since his RBs and WRs suck, too, so he won't have much of an outlet there.

He will break Marino's TD record and the INT record. And he will be on his ass a lot, too.

12. Bears and Cardinals will meet for the NFC championship in
a matchup of old school franchises that once occupied the same city. I said in the middle of last season that this season would be Super Bowl Shuffle II.

14. I think the Bears
are an underrated team, I think its between bears/seahawks/panthers for nfc...bears are incredibly strong on defense, and they got their qb back! And Griese as a back up... :)

15. My Seahawks will get shafted again...
not saying by whom, or where...but they will recieve the shaft...but, I also predict they take the nfc west. NFC west has to be the weakest division, and the Hawks are still going to take that division, unless something drastic happens...like them getting the shaft!... ;)
