NFL Week 9 Power Poll: An NFC Renaissance?

We’re 8 weeks into the 2010 NFL season and right now the top 5 teams in the league are arguably all from the AFC (Pats, Jets, Steelers, Ravens, Colts).  So what does this mean for the NFC? Are the Giants really the best team in the conference?  Could the Falcons emerge as the top seed?  Are we buying into the magic going on in Tampa?

As we head into the second half of the season, two NFC teams, the Packers and Saints, deserve our careful attention.  GB finished strong last year and will soon get some key players back from injury.  Drew Brees will benefit from the return of a healthy Reggie Bush and down the stretch no defense is going to want to go up against the potent New Orleans offense.

Share your views.  Would people like to amend their preseason Superbowl picks?

Sunday Night Football: “Just when I think I’m out…they pull me back in.”

Today, the day after the Patriots disposed of the Dolphins 41-14, Michael Corleone speaks for all of New England.  Is their precocious defense finally living up to expectations or is Chad Henne incapable of leading a team into the playoffs?  Last night, the red, white, and blue had the field covered, playing so well on defense and special teams that they forced Miami to fire their special teams coach.  So much for job security.

NFL Week 3 Power Poll: The Jets Might Be Good After All

I know I’m a week late with this picture, but, in my defense, if you had these seats you  would want to show them off too.  My tickets came compliments of a friend who works in the stadium operations department at the New Meadowlands (no possible way I could have paid for them myself).  With the prices they are charging, I have a feeling that there are going to be a lot of empty seats come November and December.  If you are planning a trip to the New Meadowlands any time soon, I suggest you look up the bus schedule out of the NYC Port Authority. The train out of Penn Station was a nightmare.
